Pen Name: Hello, I'm Haley, and "Halo" is an old nickname. "Fin" represents all those awesome Tolkien characters whose names start that way (eg. Fingolfin, Fingon, Finrod, Finarfin, etc.). And "17" is simply my favorite number.
Acknowledgments: I think it only fair to take a moment here and send a special shout-out to my dearest chicas, Schmo and Sushi , who both introduced me to fanfiction and then bolstered my creativity with their own along the way. Also, a huge "Thank You!" to Torilei for allowing me the joy and the privilege of helping her with many of her own incredible fanfics and for all the little things she does for me throughout her stories, like giving my old pet rat Rizzo a part in "Under the Same Sun." Thank you so much to them and many others, like Trollmela, and mi amiga Luna Obscura, for being such awesome "kindred spirits"! I love you all!!
Fun Rat-Related Simile: I randomly came up with this one day while admiring Rizzo's huge whiskers, because they're just too cute! "Rizzo's whiskers are like a firework exploding at the end of her nose - POOF!"
And lastly, courtesy of Schmo and Sushi:
