Alright, so here’s what you need to know about me:
I am the artist/fanfiction author formerly known as xDollfacex (ah, 15-year-old me. Remember when x's made everything seem cooler?)
My name is Ciara (pronounce: Key-ra), I’m 21 and I’m from Portlaoise in Ireland. I’ve just qualified as a primary school teacher (even though I’m shorter than most of my prospective students. And yes, that does include the five-year-olds) and I play Gaelic football with a teeny, tiny, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it club called Park/Ratheniska.
Gaelic football is a real passion of mine, but I also love reading and writing (obviously- why else would I be on this site?!). I also play a bit of volleyball and love walking. My ‘to do list’ includes learning to drive, learning to play the ukulele and taking over the world.
Personally, I don’t think I’ll ever read anything that captures me like Harry Potter did. JK Rowling is one of the single most important reasons I decided I wanted to write. In Hermione Granger she gave me a character who showed that it was OK to be bookish and awkward and have incurably bushy hair, and more importantly she showed me that girls could be heroic too.
I’m a TV addict. My shows of choice include: Glee, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, The Mentalist, CSI, CSI:NY, The Inbetweeners, White Collar, The Midnight Beast, Homeland, Game of Thrones, Revenge, Downton Abbey... the list is endless.
When it comes to music, my tastes are somewhat eclectic and include: McFly, Adele, Florence and the Machine, the Script, the Kanyu Tree, Lady Antebellum, Charlene Kaye, Jack Johnson, Josh Groban, John Mayer, Olly Murs, The Coronas, Joshua Radin, Jamie Lawson, Ryan Sheridan, Freelance Whales, Bruno Mars, One Republic, Mumford and Sons, Taylor Swift, Paolo Nutini, Michael Buble, The Beatles, Darren Criss, anything from Glee (especially the Warblers), The Coronas, Christina Perri, Rihanna, Katy Perry, One Direction, Rebecca Ferguson, Aiden Grimshaw, Maverick Sabre, Ellie Goulding, Paloma Faith, Ed Sheeran, Of Monsters and Men, Imagine Dragons... Well, I did say eclectic.
When I'm not reading and/or scribbling down ideas for fics, attempting to complete college assignments or salivating over my latest wish-list of books in the nearest available bookshop, I can usually be found at http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000892883506&ref=tn_tnmn or https://twitter.com/#!/MsCiaraDollard. Feel free to add/follow/message/tweet me, or alternatively you can PM me on here. I like to think I'm a pretty sociable cailín, after all!
