Author has written 2 stories for Song of the Lioness.
There's a princess sitting by a windowsill, with long blonde hair cascading down her back, non-descript grey eyes hidden behind glasses, fair skin and full lips. Her long, slender fingers tap on the stonework as her eyes gaze into another world, one of the imagination.
Like any proper princess, she can fence and horseride (and would do archery if there were facilities near me), as well as spending her time reading, writing and, of course, working so that her wonderous education does not go to waste.
She does manage to be quite a geeky princess though, loving maths and nuclear physics and dreaming of studying at Oxford...
'Oxford!' She hears you cry. 'Oxford isn't in a fairytale!'
Well, alright, She'll admit the truth:
Yes, I am a fairytale princess. Or at least, I am in my imagination. In reality I'm not quite so sure...
But there's one aspect of me that will never match that picture. I'm not going to wait around for a wonderful prince to come and rescue me. Oh, I want a wonderful prince, but I'm not going to waste time waiting. I'm going to try and change the world, to fix some of its brokeness. I just want to make a difference.

I don't know when I'm going to update Daughter. I'm sorry, but my life is manic. I barely have time to finish my school work to my satisfaction and that taskes up every shread of time there is. By the time I stop working, I go to bed... Seriously, that's how life is at the moment. Sorry...
