Author has written 14 stories for Rawhide, National Treasure, Big Valley, Bonanza, and Les Misérables.
I am a homeschooled 15 year old from England. I am a born-again Christian.
My main passions are horse riding, acting, watching and writing Westerns, reading and writing poetry, reading adventurous fiction, playing the piano, and spending time with my family.
My dreams are to work at stables, be a writer, and also teach piano. I would also like to travel, America and Australia being the top places that I long to visit someday, and I really, really want to have my very own horse.
I love going to Disneyland, our family favourite holiday destination! I have been there about five times now, and long to go again sometime soon!
I love doing voluntary work at the nearby riding stables on Thursdays and Saturdays, and look forward to starting an apprenticeship up there when I start my Horse Care course at Agricultural College in September, God-willing.
I love going to the theatre and the cinema.
I have done drama since I was three, and love performing in shows. I belong to an amateur dramatic group, and have played various roles in a pantomime called, 'The Twelve Plays of Christmas', Amy in 'Little Women', Heidi in 'Heidi', and have just been the maid, a person at the station, and a boy in a paperchase scene in 'The Railway Children'. I have just been cast in the Agatha Cristie play, 'Appointment with Death'. I am thrilled to have the part of Ginevra Boynton!
I LOVE Westerns! And that just about sums me up!
My top favourite movies and TV series are:
Les Miserables (the new musical movie)
It's a Wonderful Life
Gone With the Wind
Jurassic Park Trilogy
The Sons of Katie Elder
I have just started watching 'Dr Quinn Medicine Woman', and I think it's fantastic. I hope to post some stories on DQMW soon!
I've only just discovered 'The Monroes' on YouTube, and I really, really love the series. I wish it was out on DVD!
I have seen the first season of 'Big Valley' and I love it. It is brilliant!
I really like 'Foyle's War'.
I also like the TV series 'Rawhide' and 'Bonanza'.
My favourite Disney (and Disney Pixar) movies:
The Lion King
Toy Story Trilogy
The Little Mermaid
My list could go on. I also love: Tarzan, Aladdin, Brother Bear, Beauty and the Beast, Cars and Cars 2, Hercules, and many, many more!
As for Disney live action movies, I love National Treasure 1 and 2, Secretariat, and Enchanted!
My favourite books are:
The Scarlet Pimpernell by Baroness Orczy
Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (I am reading it for school this year!)
The Circle C Adventures by Susan K. Marlow
I also love to read the plays of Agatha Christie! And I love Shakespeare's plays!
My favourite things that I have seen at the theatre are:
Beauty and the Beast
Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
My favourite actors and actresses are:
Jane Seymour, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, and Barbara Stanwyck
My favourite music:
Les Miserables (I love listening to, singing and playing these songs on my piano)
Western theme tunes (like BV, Bonanza, DQMW, Dollar trilogy etc.)
John Williams' music (War Horse, Jurassic Park, E.T. etc.)
I like country style music too - Olivia Newton John's version of 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' is one of my favourites.
Many thanks to everyone for taking the time to read and review my stories! It is much appreciated! My stats show that I get quite a few hits on my stories - so I would love it if my readers could leave me a little review to let me know what they thought of my stories!!! Thankyou so much. I hope you all like the stories that I publish on here. Enjoy!
ATTENTION BIG VALLEY FANS: I am, as I am sure you all are, anxiously awaiting the release of the rest of the BV seasons. I have emailed both 20th Century Fox and Delta Home Entertainment, the two suppliers of BV on DVD, concerning future releases of Big Valley. Fox replied to me and said that my email will be passed on to those who decide future releases. I thought this was rather promising, and thought that it would help if lots of fans contacted these two companies concerning releasing this fantastic series - it may spur them on a bit, and boy howdy, that's just what we need! So please do email them! It may speed up the releases of the other seasons of this beloved series. Please don't hesitate! I for one can hardly wait to see the rest of this series on DVD with my family!
To anyone who reads my Louise Marie Cartwright stories in the Bonanza section, I have many stories planned, so please do keep an eye out for them. Sorry if it does take me a little while to always get around to writing the next one. I will try to be as quick as possible!
To anyone who follows my Rachel Barkley series in the Big Valley section, I have loads of stories planned, so please keep an eye out for any updates or new stories that I might post. I hope you like my extra character of Rachel that I've added in my stories, and that you enjoy all of the exciting plots that I have planned. I hope to include Eugene in most of my stories as I am really upset that he is hardly in the series! Enjoy my stories!!!
To anyone who might be following my National Treasure story: Please forgive me for being so slow in updating my story. I fully intended to be quicker, but I am afraid I have been getting a bit of writer's block, plus I am getting ideas for different stories, and then I get a bit sidetracked! On top of all that I have been really busy, too! I will try to update it as often as I can.
