Author has written 1 story for Vampire Knight.

I'm 18, female (proud to be one!), and am currently majoring in Business in the University of Newcastle. Hey, a future businesswoman with a fanfic writing side hobby! Who'd ever guessed?

Obssessions/Favourites/Things I Like or Liked:

Anime

Vampire Knight (duh!) - The anime is out! I just knew VK would one day become an anime, what with the manga being so popular. XD

Saiunkoku Monogatari - Seriously, there's eye-candy almost every episode. Even after the first season, I still can't choose between Seiran and Ryuuki.

Bleach - I find Hitsugaya utterly adorable with his 'I'm-a-taichou-so-you-better-respect-me' attitude since everyone still treats him as a kid. He'll kill me if he read that.

Manga

Vampire Knight - Matsuri sensei's works are amazing. I love all of them! MeruPuri was absolute delight, what with adult Aram providing eye-candy in every volume.

The Bride of the Water God - This manhwa is the best I've ever read. Who cares about Goong?? So hooked am I, that I practically check for updates everyday.

Midnight Secretary - Another manga with vampires. And Tomu Oomi is the mangaka. Need I say more about how awesome it is?

Shitsuji-sama no Okiniri - The artwork reminds me of Yuki Kaori's. On that note, I love Ludwig Kakumei!

Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen - Euda and Johanne make one heck of a couple. I think the words 'relationship issues' is stretching it when it comes to them.

Shinigami Lovers - Who can't get enough of shinigamis? Add romance into the plot and voila! You have a must-read manga.

Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden - Woohoo! Watase sensei continues the Girl of Legend epic! I was in love with the original FY and this one's no different. You think there'll eventually be a manga series on the Byakko troupe? I'd love dearly to read Suzuno's story!

Love Monster - Go Hitomi! An eccentric old soul with an appearance of a young human girl. Who doesn't love these contrary whack manga characters? It's too bad the series has come to an end. Oh well, I shall await a sequel. (Hopefully.)

Games

Lost Odyssey - Playing it currently. Argh, that sunken magic experimentation site which comes from the DLC pack is one big damn boatload of hassle! No save point to boot!

Dynasty Warriors 6 - While I think everyone has downgraded from the 5th, Zhao Yun is the exception and he positively kicks ass.

Kingdom Hearts - I've only ever defeated Sephiroth...7 times or so. Trumping the one-winged angel as 14 year old Sora, alone might I add, gives a bigger sense of satisfaction than defeating him in FFVII. Plus the whole situation is so ironic. First killed by Cloud and company, then getting his ass whooped by Sora (who's still a kid) as and when you want to challenge the Platinum Cup. Poor Sephy. Relegated to such a state. -sniggers-

Movies

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - Ben Barnes is absolutely yummy as Prince Caspian. He's got charm, I'd say. But I can't stand Disney altering the original storyline to add in some romance! I mean, Susan and Caspian? They so do not go together. No offense to Suspian fans out there.

Get Smart - I think this is the ultimate in secret agent spoof movies. Johnny English has dropped to No. 2 on my list.

Kungfu Panda - Who doesn't enjoy a good Pixar/Dreamworks animation now and then?

Ratatouille - See above reason.

Enchanted - It's a one-of-a-kind Disney movie. And Amy Adams can really sing!

Stardust - Neil Gaiman wrote the original novel; of course the storyline rocks. Ben Barnes appears in the movie too! (Though his role was short.)

Pirates of the Caribbean - Two words: Jack Sparrow.

Van Helsing - Because it has vampires in it. And werewolves. And Frankenstein.

The Dark Knight - Christian Bale as a crusading vigilante in a Batsuit. That's enough to set off a girl's hormones. And the Joker. Twisted lovable villian is he.

Books

I'm a strictly romance only reader, so the authors I like are limited to that category. Here are some of my favourite authors I can recall from memory:

Sherrilyn Kenyon - Darkhunters: Hot, droolicious vampires who protect Mankind when darkness falls. What female doesn't want one for herself? Dibs on Acheron! XD

Katie MacAlister - Blow me down had me laughing away the whole day as I read the book in one single sitting. My fav MacAlister book! (Sorry, Drake!)

Karen Marie Moning - She is an unbelievable writer. Truly amazing. Reading her books made me paranoid for a period of time as to whether there really were faes out there. She's that convincing.

Christine Feehan - Carpathians; really, the name is just a variation for vampires. And who doesn't love a good vampire romance? I know I can't resist. .

Sandra Brown - She's classic. Her books were what got me hooked on romance stories for life back when I was 13.

Linda Lael Miller - I love her vampire romance stories (Woo, Aidan!) though they're rather old by now. (The first one of four was published in 1993.) Of course, being that I was only 3 at that time, the version I read were reprints.

Mary Jo Putney - The China Bride had me on an emotional roller coaster following the characters. I'm particularly attached to this book since I'm a Eurasian myself and can relate to Troth. I'm half Chinese too! (Singaporean Chinese, that is.)

Emily Carmichael - Contemporary romance with a not so contemporary twist. PIGGY!

Sandra Hill - Vikings and time travel; I think that's where my constant OC-ing into plotlines come from.

Though strictly-romance-only I may be, my family and friends got me to read some non-romance books too and I love the Everworld series by K.A. Applegate. Recently, I read a thriller by Lisa Jackson (recommended--more like shoved into my face--by my brother). Shiver, if I recall. That was a good read too. (And it had bits of romance in it!)

And who can forget good ol' Nancy Drew? I read those books growing up as a kid. Used to have a collection of them (both hardcover and paperback) myself. I think my mum donated the entire towering stack of 'em to my younger cousins or something when I outgrew Nancy. They've vanished god-knows-where.

Music

I pretty much listen to anything. My Zen Vision:M has artistes such as Paramore, Carrie Underwood, My Chemical Romance, Bond, Utada Hikaru and even game soundtracks. (I love Xenogears' soundtrack!)

Of Living and Learning reviews
The secrets surrounding vampires have always been impenetrable throughout history. But one genius mind would finally crack its mysteries. This sends her plunging through a whirlwind of events, threatening her life and the existence of the Night Class.
