Author has written 12 stories for X-Files, Bones, ER, McLeod’s Daughters, Farscape, and Off the Map.
"Menschen mit Phantasie, langweilen sich nie." (German saying --> rough translation --> People with imagination rarely get bored.)
... and I would call myself such a person, because I always knew how to keep me occupied and entertained, which mainly meant writing a story. At frist, when I was little, together with my sister, and later on on my own.
You see, I just like writing - after a troubled day at university, I tend to write something in order to calm down and relax. That does mean I have tons of stories stored on my computer - some nice, some not so nice. But I have lots of ideas that are spinning around in my mind. Unfortunately, I mostly have to translate them first, because I'm no native english speaker. But hey, practice is important! And makes perfect (maybe some day ;-)).
About my writing style - or basically what I want from stories: Whenever I read stories and love them, I look for strong stories, innovative ideas, insight into the characters and of course, my favourite, imagery! If a story combines all these features, it's probably impossible it is a bad one. So, whenever I write, I try to live up to these standards ... whatever I have made up in my mind about a story, what my characters see, smell and feel, I have to write about it and share it with others. I want others to see and smell and feel what my characters see, smell, and feel. This way, you'll delve much deeper into a story ... at least, that's what I think and strive for.
Moreover, I very much enjoy this site, although I rarely have the time to post my own stories. But I long for reading the stories of others - and what place could be better then FF.net? I simply love all the gathered imagination and creativity around here. So many stories I've read are so fantastic - perfect writing style, perfect story. There were stories that showed me how much I actually have to learn.
I always try (and I'm mostly successful at that) to drop a review for every story I read, because that's the least a reader can do. You get this fantastic story and all you have to do at the end is to press the little button and leave a nice little note. As I'm a writer (or used to be a writer myself) reviews are important, because they help you to get better! Leaving a little message (even though it may be a not so positive one) is better than leaving nothing.
And by leaving an author a little note after I read her amazing stories I get to know a very special person - if she's reading this, she'll definitely know that I'm talking about her - but for the record: Her author's name around here is Niah1988 and if you haven't checked out her stories, you should visit her profile when you're done reading this (-- it's definitely worth it). She's a very special person who seems to have worked her way into my daily life, not only because of the fact that I always have to think of her when Maroon5's "Makes Me Wonder" is playing on the radio but simply because of our frequent e-mail contact. :-)
On top of that, I'm also a very loyal replier to reviews that I get for my own stories around here - so, whenever you write me a review, you can be sure that I'll get back to you.
And besides that, there's not much to tell about me ... if you have any further questions ... contact me, I'll surely write back,
enjoy your day,
