Author has written 32 stories for Neverwinter Nights, and Dragon Age.

I am one of those weirdos who have way too many degrees ( two MAs and a PhD if we must count them) but ended up not working on their field after all, due to relocating to a different continent. I was born and raised in Hungary, (that's in Europe) and then got married to an honorary Texan and promptly moved to there (Texas, US, that is). There I ended up working in a sales office and realized that I need an outlet for my creativity (those who work in business, raise your hands and nod sympathetically please).

I wrote semi-professionally during college and had some literature and professional publications to my name in Hungary already, plus did fanfic for my own entertainment. I still write, but no fanfic until NWN2 came along and made me give up other unnecessary habits such as cleaning and preparing dinner.

Books: I like SF and fantasy, but I am kinda picky about it: some of my favorites are Alastair Reynolds, Allen Steele, Thomas Harlan, the incomparable Glen Cook, and Terry Pratchett, of course. And then there are the classics--I used to read the Iliad in freshman's camp and promptly was branded a weirdo; Dante and Machiavelli for when I feel I need to get serious, Malory's romances and anything King Arthur-related besides.

Moviewise I am a sucker for some oldies like anything with Gregory Peck or Jimmy Stewart; Clint Eastwood--Pale Rider and Unforgiven especially; from the newer crop, Firefly, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica and the late and lamented Space Above and Beyond (with The Angriest Angel being the best episode ever, that makes even my husband cry).

And now, add to all this weirdness the fact that I am a new parent... Boy, time flies. I am also on deviantart (and have been for a while but somehow I never got around updating this page), with many illustrations to my own fics posted here and a couple I made for others'. Look for rhia474-dot-deviantart-dot-com and let me know what you think.
