Author has written 28 stories for Newsies, RENT, and Queer as Folk.

so, you really want to know about me, huh?
Well, I'm a twenty-year-old student and, depending on your definition, author living in a sweet apartment at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts. Major: History, Minor: English:Writing, Concentration: Secondary Education. How I'm finishing that all in the next year in a half, I have no fucking clue.

I've been writing on here since middle school, starting with Newsies, and in the more recent years RENT and QAF. I try to be somewhat creative with my writing ideas though that has been known to fail on occasion. Posting here just happens out of habit. More of my work, including loads of drabbles can be found on my livejournals - cavanaugh_park (my writing journal) and exmptfromsanity.

I like to read almost anything. Slash or not, it doesn't matter. Well no, that's a lie. My standards are actually pretty high; it needs to be well written. The second I see internet script, mary sues, or horrible characterization/character bashing I pretty much hit the back button.

I am an NJL member (old school, I know), and very proud of it. If you don't like that it's not my problem.

And now a quote from the ever brilliant Prof Lynch:

"A monkey with Alzheimers could have beaten Bush in the 2000 election."

Mr. Gilmore: "I don't feel like going through the troubles of trying to find you if the school decides to test the teachers so if a fireman or a faculty member tries to grab you just run like hell..." -Salina

Yeah... I should update this more often.
