Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter, Fairy Tales, Lord of the Rings, Dungeons and Dragons, and Pirates of the Caribbean.um, I have no idea what to say here... except maybe that I'm an average teenager that has spent way to much time reading and making up stories, which is why I write. However, writing these days consists of the penning of papers if anything at all. Most of what I write is some what original fiction (which if anyone would like to read, please e-mail or IM me) which is sitting in a sundry of notebooks and drawers of my desk until I actually get around to a) editing and b) sending them out to various literary magazines.
My influences are J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles de Lint, Neil Gaiman, Patricia McKillip, Emma Bull, Geoffrey Hill, David Jones, Aaron Fogel, Kelly Link, James Joyce, and T.S. Eliot. There are probably more, but these are the ones that I am consciencly trying to imitate.
Currently when I write fanfiction I tend towards two areas. Either _Lord of the Rings_ or else Terri Windling's _Borderland_ series. I have a set of stories that are currently in the process of being written using an early 20th century version of Middle Earth, and seeing what themes I get out of them. As well as how characters get updated (eg: Eowyn as a women's studies major with a tendancy towards a revisionist slant of history)
