Author has written 6 stories for Protector of the Small Quartet, and Song of the Lioness.

Ok, I am probably older than the majority of people on the site but I enjoy writing and have joined a writing group and since retirement I have far more time on my hands. So I decided to indulge my mildly creative side with writing fiction instead of knitting. I hope you enjoy my stories and feel free to write constructive criticism - I have recently begun a creative writing class, of sorts, and am eager to here what you think of some of my work.

From what I've seen on other people's sites it is common to add some quotes and interesting points here. These are some of my favourite quotes, though they may not all be as amusing as some of those I have read and some are vaguely motivational, if you go in for that sort of thing.

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." Oscar Wilde, Lady Windemere's Fan

This quote reminds me of the importance of ambition, of love and of hope, because it is these things that allow us to look to the stars and not feel insignificant. I also recommend reading the play as it is very entertaining.

"None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm." Henry Thoreau

Henry Thoreau was an American author, poetnaturalisttax resisterdevelopment criticsurveyorhistorianphilosopher, and leading transcendentalist. I think he must have had much enthusiasm to be involved in so many diverse areas (or have had a very short attention span). When I am too old to chew my own food (and that will be a while coming) I hope to retain the enthusiasm to insist on trying.

"What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say." Emerson

Just a reminder that, throughout eternity, even your family and those closest to you will remember your actions and forget your words, so make your actions count.

"He who has a why to live can bare almost any how." Nietzche

A challenge to anybody who reads this page to find your own personal 'meaning of life'.

"To avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing by nothing." Elbert Hubbard

This quote is first and foremost a plea for reviews (I know I sound desperate and I no longer mind). I will enjoy receiving any criticism you have for my work, because it means you care enough to reply.

"To love at all is to vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it us safe in the casket of coffin of you selfishness. But in that casket - safe, dark, motionless, airless - it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable."
