Author has written 3 stories for Chronicles of Narnia, and Discworld.
Hello. Welcome to my profile. Before you read on , let me just say this. You must be either really devoted to my writing (HIGHLY doubtful) or really, really bored. Either way, I'm sure you can find something better to do with your time than read about a bizarre writer girl (yes, I am a girl) whom you've never met. However, its your choice. Moving on. As you may have noticed from some of my writing, I have a bizzare sense of humor, sort of a Terry Pratchett meets Monty Python meets Political humor thing. This is constantly exuding into my works. I try to stop it. It conflicts with my love for fantasy and serious writing, resulting in some sort of hash resembling a story. I try not to let my personal views enter in to a story (i.e., political opinions, religious opinions, etc.) because I think that there should be at least one thing you can do in this world that has nothing to do with politics. (although I identify myself as liberal and a Catholic, as well as a lover of political humor, I never judge people by their beliefs and frankly couldn't care less about which stuffy old fogey they would like to see in power.) But do not take all my standoffish comments about things I do not like as indicator of my attitude. I love animals (cats especially!), reading, acting, history, biking and writing.
I would also like to mention that I am now a great deal older, naturally, than I was when I began writing. I can only look back with a brief shiver of shame at the state of my grammar and punctuation lo those many years ago; however, such is the nature of my character that I prefer to take the shame and bear it rather than go to all the trouble of editing those stories. They will therefore remain unchanged.
To give you a better idea of my character, here are some handy lists.
Favourite Series: Discworld, Chronicles of Narnia, Song of the Lioness, Hercule Poirot Mysteries, A Song of Ice and Fire

Favourite Characters in excellent books (in no particular order):
Alanna the Lioness
Adora Belle Dearheart
Moist von Lipwig
Dislikes or Praise these at your own peril
Country Western music
Brainless twilight groupies with no personal goal other that meeting Edward.
Idiots who drive enourmous hummers to and from work and then recycle once and feel good about themselves for "saving the earth"
People who write fanfics after only seeing the movie, not reading the book. (my worst nightmare)
People who only read the book because they saw the movie and because they think it's cool.
People who write stories that are blatantly historically innacurate (argh argh argh)
Vetinari/Drumknott fanfics (I have nothing against LGBT people, but this is beyond disturbing.)
Peter/Edmund and Peter/Caspian fics (equally beyond disturbing!)
Kel/Raoul fics (Raoul is meant for Buri! Also, I really dislike Kel.)
Pevenscest (Don't even get me started on how disturbing that is.)
The very small but no doubt growing population of people who only know English history from Phillipa Gregory books (well-written and enjoyable as fiction, but some are annoyingly revisionist) and terrible HBO shows (If you make a show about the Tudors that even I can't understand, that's a problem.)
And now that you know about me, please read (and review) my stories with a discerning eye.
