Author has written 4 stories for Scarlet Pimpernel, and Magic Flute.

Country: USA

Basic Info: I am a born again, Bible believing Christian (If you are not, then let me just tell you that there's no better place on earth than the road that leads to heaven! It's true! I'll leave it at that...). I work in the medical profession, so you may find I like to be particular with how the body functions in such areas my stories may make use of, such as illness and injury, i.e. infection will have the symptoms of infection, loss of blood will have the symptoms of loss of blood etc. etc. to the best of my knowledge. I was homeschooled, which is how I came to be introduced to a wide variety of classic literature and world history which will occasionally evidence itself in my writing. I do not write much fan fiction as a rule, I like to write my own stories (I've even self-published a story and am working on having another out soon), however, the adventures of Baroness Orczy's hero, the Scarlet Pimpernel, have captured my imagination for a long time now and the result has been several fan fictions. It may be the only story I ever write fan fiction on. The Anthony Andrews/Jane Seymour 1982 version of TSP is hands down the best version of The Scarlet Pimpernel in my opinion with the Leslie Howard/Merle Oberon version coming in close second. I don't care for Marguerite/Chauvelin romance, the '82 movie used it very well as a plot thickener but anything further than that - essentially, anything more than what you can read into the Baroness' writing - is too much for me. I will read M/Ch fanfics, but you won't catch me writing one!

Favorite Authors and the stories of theirs that I have read and particularly liked: Baroness Emuska Orczy (the entire pimpernel series except for 'the pimpernel and rosemary'), Charles Dickens (A Tale of Two Cities, Pickwick Papers, David Copperfield, Martin Chuzzlewit), Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice), George McDonald (all the books I've read by him so far are good, and I've read about 16 by now...), L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables series, The Blue Castle), Frank Peretti (Cooper Kids series, This Present Darkness, Piercing the Darkness, the Prophet). And some miscellaneous stories I like: Heidi (Johanna Spyri) Christy (Catherine Marshall), Old Fashioned Girl (Louisa May Alcott), The King's Cavalier (Samuel Shellabarger), Phantom of the Opera (Gaston Leroux).

Favorite Movies:

The Scarlet Pimpernel (1982v.), The Sound of Music, In Search of the Castaways, The Great Escape, The Ten Commandments, Veggie Tales, The Black Stallion Returns, Indianna Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Last Crusade, & Crystal Skull, Scaramouche, National Treasure (especially the 1st), The Court Jester, Ratatouille, Ben-Hur, Pride and Prejudice (with Collin Firth - NOT the "Mrs. Darcy! *kiss* Mrs. Darcy! *kiss* Mrs. Darcy! *kiss* Mrs. Darcy! *kiss kiss kiss* etc. etc." version. oh this reminds me of another one of my favorite movies: Singing in the Rain), Emma (with Gwyneth Paltrow), Finding Nemo (actually, just about any Pixar film could make the cut here...trying to keep this brief...), The A&E Horatio Hornblower series, Lots of Dickens movies...(lots and lots of Dickens movies), Stardust, Sense and Sensibility (with Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant, I have yet to see the newer version, maybe it will be my favorite too), The Swan Princess (I can recite the entire movie from start to finish!), Timeline, Ivanhoe (A&E/BBC version), Miracle of the White Stallions, Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit, That Darn Cat (with Hayley Mills), Love Comes Softly, Phantom of the Opera (new version), Scarlet and the Black, Life is Beautiful, Night at the Museum (especially the 2nd one), Charlie Chaplin films (particularly the eras involving the Essanay shorts through Limelight), The Guns of Navarone, The Proposal (Sandra Bullock), Cyrano de Bergerac (with Gerard Depardieu), Leap Year, Lord of the Rings trilogy, so far (as of the second installment) the Hobbit trilogy, the new Star Trek movies...and I think I'll stop here, I really could go on for a ridiculous amount of time. I love movies and this is a good sample for now.

Favorite Historical Periods to Learn about/set stories in:

Roman Empire, High Middle Ages, American Revolution, French Revolution, America's Western expansion, WWII.

Favorite Song Artists/ Composers: (these vary from time to time, but stand currently as they are now)

Steven Curtis Chapman, SuperChick, Vivaldi, Relient K, Michael Card, Rich Mullins, FFH, Johann Strauss Jr. (the other Strausses are awesome too though!), Celtic music in general, Franz Lehar, ABBA, and lots of others that I guess I don’t love enough to remember right now. (On a side note, I've been listening to an Austrian radio station alot lately, trying to learn German, and have found some new favorite songs: Wenn du denkst [Julianne Werding, So richtig nett ist's nur im Bett and Der Papa wird schon richten [Peter Alexander, and Moskau [Dschingis Khan]. The last one is really fun..."Moskau, Moskau, Komm wir tanzen auf dem Tisch, Bis der Tisch zusammenbricht, ha ha ha ha ha, hey!")

In closing:

That ought to be enough to given an idea of what to expect from my writing style or add perspective to the reviews I give/questions I answer. Also, I love feedback - even if it is critical, and appreciate all the reviews I can get!

Long live the Scarlet Pimpernel!

The Nineteenth League Member reviews
Sir Charles Chesterton Worthsbyfeld IV (known by his friends as "Worthsby") never really was lucky, but when the bumbling society fop unwittingly enlists in the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel he sets off a grand series of misadventures destined to banish him forever from Orczy's writings altogether! Rated K-plus for mild swearing.
