Author has written 1 story for Dragon Age.

Let me start by saying my avatar is a picture by Kaana Moonshadow, and can be found on deviant art. I've had a few people tell me I resemble the image, though, and if people really think I resemble a mage from Dragon Age, I'm going to just go with it. I've been reading stories on this wonderful site for quite some time, and have actually stayed up until 6 AM reading some stories. My favorite fan fiction stories used to be Dragon Age and Labyrinth, but have now expanded to include Harry Potter, Mass Effect, and Skyrim. I have a Dragon Age story going on here, but I have been working on it for quite some time. I just don't have much time for writing for pleasure - if you've never been in grad school, you can not imagine the endless writing assignments (for example, one of my seminars this semester requires a total of 13 papers due). Updates may begin to speed up, however, since I finally got myself a laptop.

A little about me personally: I am 31 years old with a husband and 2 kids; I am also the retail supervisor in a zoo gift shop while attending classes full time (well, not during the summer. I don't believe in summer school). I am actually a history major, but I have been writing since I was 4 (although my stories back then were a trifle odd). I was also an editor for an award-winning college literary magazine. In fact, it is the top rated undergraduate lit mag in the United States.

To all fellow writers who wonder just who is this person who follows or favorites while almost never leaving reviews: I usually access the stories from my phone, and it is really hard to type up a good review from it. I dislike having a touchscreen at times due to the difficulty in typing legibly. Believe me, though, I would never follow or favorite a story that did not captivate me in some way!
