Author has written 5 stories for Legend of Zelda.

I'm not a writer, though I've been told I have potential. I DO think better in text. Mostly, though, I'm just fairly eloquent, and I like a good story. That, and I'm a geeky fangirl! Especially when it comes to anything Zelda (my college friends are fond of telling me that their most memorable first impression of me was the moment I pulled out my sketchbook and proceeded to show them my genealogy chart and family tree for Link and Zelda, the rules of grammar for modern Hyrulean script, complete with alphabet glyphs and key whole-word hieroglyphs, and a 2-page spread of 20-30 characters, most of them original, that I'd designed based around the first two Zelda games, and proceeded to give brief background info for ALL of them. Yes, I'm THAT kind of geeky fangirl.) In fact, I'm currently sitting on a new sketchbook with about 30 pages of front-and-back handwritten notes varying from movie scene ideas to character bios, comparison of Hyrulean costums vs Calatian customs, a breakdown of the nature of Hylian magic and how it works, and other such info, not counting the pages of character sketches and diagrams of the various pieces of clothing and protective gear that go into Link's trademark outfit. (If anyone at Nintendo is reading this: I don't care if you just want me to be Shigeru Miyamoto's personal coffee-fetching assistant for a year, just get me in there!! Get me in on the design team for a Zelda game, and I don't even care about pay: just leave me a couch and some snacks in the break room every day so I can sleep and not starve.)

Professionally, I consider myself a visual artist. I do concept stuff in 2D and model characters and environments in virtual 3D. I enjoy using Sculpey, too, but sadly, I have to curb that hobby due to lack of shelf space. Following are my galleries and LJ page:



Links to artwork for my original fan-fiction can be found here:

I've also drawn fanart for Aubuyn's Loz fan-fiction, "Weeping Eye" (hosted on FanFiction.net AND her LJ page). The images are works-in-progress, but I'm already inking them, and color will (hopefully) follow soon:

Also, these don't relate to anything in particular, other than LoZ, but since I'm listing fan-art:
