Author has written 50 stories for Star Wars, Jedi Apprentice, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Ninja Turtles.
Age: Early thirties
I love stories, from folklore to mythology to novels, and I like learning about other people and different cultures.
I'm fascinated with pythons and cheetahs and am a strong believer in the value and importance of literacy. Some genres I favor are fantasy, historical fiction, and drama. I like watching plays, especially musicals, and enjoy cute, feel-good cartoons.
I hate intolerance and censorship, even if I don't necessarily agree with what's being said or believed. I think it's paramount that everyone should be able to express themselves in their own way so long as I can avoid what I find distasteful or offensive.
I'm idealistic and place a high value on intelligence. I fear confrontation and quarreling and am more apt to write a letter if I have a problem with someone than to talk face-to-face. It's just as well, since I'm rather blunt verbally. I can be uncertain and insecure about my opinions if I'm not comfortable disagreeing with you, and that goes back to my hatred of fights. Generally, I'm mellow, content, easy-going, and relaxed, though I can also have an explosive temper and I never forget a wrong, even if I may still be able to be civil. People have also called me stubborn. I have no clue where they get that idea.
A Note About the Star Wars EU
I have long held the belief that the Star Wars EU is glorified fanfiction. With LucasFilm officially announcing that the EU is not canon, my idea is thus validated. Eps I-VI and "Clone Wars" are canon, of course, but that was always agreeable to me. While I'm still happy to incorporate things from the EU into my own fanon about the characters I love, I no longer need to concern myself with what other fans may view as contradictory. LucasFilm is making a new start with Rebels, and subsequent books, comics, and games must now conform to one established timeline. Here's hoping for more organization, plausibility, and continuity in future.
