Author has written 3 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and Harry Potter.

Okay, no idea what exactly I'm supposed to put on my profile, so I'll just wing it and hope it sounds fairly okay.

Description: Think of a small person you might find in a library with her nose stuck in a good book. Think of a person with a pencil in her hair and pen ink on her hands. Think of a person with a funny outlook on life and an unusual style. Do that, you got me!

Age: Haven't you ever heard a girl never tells people her age?

Interests: good fantasy/adventure/mystery books, drawing, writing, know, normal people's likes

Dislikes: The Cold. The Wet. The Dark. You could say I really don't like winter.

Favorite food: Um, I'd have to give into my little kid side and say pizza! Yay!

Deviant Art Account: I'm Nanette Ryder (this time I spelled my name right. Isn't it good when you can do that?) Check me out if you want!

Sports: Okay, yeah, I try Volleyball, Basketball, and Softball. Sure, I love it. Talent? A big, fat N-O. I'm the person who sits in the bleachers with the camera and cheers--even though half the time, I have no clue what's going on.

A Random Question: How many people have pictures and statues and little figurines of chickens all over their kitchen?

Dominant Trait in Room: All the notebooks full of stories piled high in my bookshelf and around my room.

Musical Talent: Ha, ha, funny. That' s a good one. Truthfully, I love the beats and I love to sing along, but when it comes to trying to play my poor guitar or keyboard, I have absolutely no patience. My brother is a whole different story however...I think he's half wizard or something.

Favorite Book Series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians (Harry Potter comes in second, Wolves of Mercy Falls in third)

Favorite Books: "The Blue Girl" by Charles de Lint, "Bad Girls Don't Die" by Katie Alender, "The Two Princesses of Bamarre" Gail Carson Levine, "Goose Girl" by Shannon Hale, "The Green Mile" by Stephen King

Outlook on Life: Usually Optimistic, occasionally Realistic

Favorite Animal: fox

Favorite Color: Forget-Me-Not Blue

Something I Consider Special About Myself: My Purity Ring.

Favorite Saying: "Holy Cheez-its!" or "That's so Possum!" (Didn't I already admit to my weirdness?)

My Ideal Superpower: Telekinesis. I mean, how cool would it be to just say "up" and the thing you were trying to get would go up and over the huge crowd of people that probably would have made you one with the floor if you'd actually gone in? Or in sports, "oh, look, the ball's all the way over there--nope, now it's in my glove."

Strange Aversions: Tomatoes, Mushrooms, and Pickles (I mean, the taste isn't so hot to me and, really, they're just slimy going down your throat. I mean, holy cheez-its, Shudder-ific!)

Something I Really Just Don't Have a Hope of Getting: texting language. LOL. im sooo not JKin u!

Great Ambition: Publish a story--for real. I finished a story (finally, after three years of trying, I finally did it) thanks to my wonderful reviewers and readers. I want to finish my fanfiction story then work on an original story. I'm going to see if I can become a real life, bonafide author in the physical world with a totally original story. Wish me luck. :)

Some Things I Do In My Free Time: Walk around listening to music, write fanfiction, draw pictures that may be the equivalent of a kindergardener's expertise, think about studying for finals, decide against it.

"Her hair glows! I didn't see that coming. Her hair actually glows! Why does her hair glow? What! Why is he smiling at me?" Eugene Fitzherbert (bad speller), Tangled

"You lied to me by telling me the truth?" Captain Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

"What happened to 'there's not a jar in the world that I can't open'? Wait, did you find a jar you couldn't open? Were there pickles in it? Where's the giant jar of pickles?!" B.O.B, Monsters vs. Aliens

"I may not have a brain, gentlemen, but I have an idea." B.O.B, Monster vs. Aliens

"Oh, dear, Dinner's rather moody." Twilight, The Guardians of Gahoole

"Where do all these guys come from?"--Peter Parker, Spider-man 3

"Kathy! How did you miss the bus? You were on it!" --That Touch of Mink

"I'm crazy only on the days of the end that end with 'y'." --my oldest sister to me

"Thanks. I like your costume, too. But, when I dress up like a frigid bitch, I try to not look so constipated." --Elle Woods, Legally Blonde

"I will simply deny you the crown and live--forever!" --King Francis, Ever After

If you've gotten this far in my profile, I want to say, hey, thanks for reading about my crazy self. If you're brave enough to read my fanfiction, please review. If there's one thing I love, it's to hear from my readers. Reviews help me push through a funk I'm having and keep on writing. My reviews from you, my readers, are the things that make it possible to keep on writing. To finish. So, even if you didn't make it down here, I'm throwing this out to cyberspace for the people who read this and didn't: Thank you. :)
