Author has written 12 stories for Sweeney Todd, Shakespeare, and Alice in Wonderland, 2010.

Oh dear. I am awfully bad at these things.

But I shall try.

I'm in my twenties. I am a theatre major. My greatest interests/pursuits include music, drama, creative writing, and history. I'm absolutely terrible at visual art. What I read, in terms of books, is mainly historical fiction. I am particularly fond of stories involving tragedy and the like. I will freely admit to being a stickler for historical accuracy. Which means that I am incredibly nit-picky and only come across a book I like once in awhile, but that when I do, I fall in love. I'm intrigued by costumery, particularly that from the Renaissance and Victorian eras. I am an incessant singer ... I like to stay in a room and belt music. I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Lately, as with my literary interests, historical fiction is also all I write. Lately, by which I mean for the past six years. Oops.

I set up this account because I am, in all ways, absolutely transfixed with Sweeney Todd. I spend a great deal of my time writing fanfiction about it (more than I ever, ever should, actually), so I figured I may as well break down and post some.

Books I like: The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber; The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn by Robin Maxwell; Cut by Patricia McCormick; Born Blue by Han Nolan; The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B by Sandra Gulland; The Hours by Michael Cunningham; Dracula by Bram Stoker; and pretty much anything by Edgar Allan Poe or Charles Dickens

Musicals I like: Sweeney Todd, Chicago, Fiddler on the Roof, Camelot, Jekyll & Hyde.

Bands and/or artists I like: Alexandre Desplat, Amanda Palmer, Amy Winehouse, Antonio Vivaldi, Bauhaus, The Beatles, Brand New, CAKE, Coheed and Cambria, Danny Elfman, David Bowie, The Decemberists, The Dresden Dolls, Emilie Autumn, Evanescence, Garbage, La Fille d'Octobre, Lady Gaga, Lily Allen, Marilyn Manson, Mon Frere, Nelly Furtado, Nightwish, Pink, The Pixies, Portishead, The Ramones, She Wants Revenge, The Sounds, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Movies I like: Sweeney Todd, Fight Club, Merlin, Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Amelie, Labyrinth, Juno, Some Like It Hot, This Is England, Waking Ned Devine, Aimee et Jaguar, 10 Things I Hate About You, White Oleander, Le Maitre de Musique, Le Pacte du Silence, Elizabeth I, The Curse of the Jade Scorpion, Love and Death, Girl Interrupted, Enchanted April, The Tenth Kingdom, Duck Soup.
