Author has written 5 stories for Legend of Zelda, Star Wars, Scorpio Races, and Queen's Thief series.
This is where I ususally post extravagent excuses for my slow updates...well, um, I ran out. So, yeah...
*Tipoca City is currently on hold. May be continued later.*
If you're reading this, you obviously want to know more about the girl behind the words. So, without further ado...
From the first, I'm a Star Wars fan (movies and books). Out of all the Star Wars universe though, Obi-Wan Kenobi is my favorite Jedi, if not all-time character. Though I've got a soft spot for Han Solo as well. (But who doesn't?) And I must honorably mention Kal Skirata and all his clone 'sons'--Ordo, Fi, Mereel, Atin, and all the other boys.
Hobbies: Reading, drawing (especially people from my stories, books I've read, or movies I've seen. If I can see a picture of it, I can draw it) playing videogames...hanging out with my sisters. Of course, I like to write. I can't even begin to count the notebooks lying around my house full of (mostly unfinished) story ides. A friend at summer camp several years ago got me hooked on writing and I can't stop.
Movies: The list could go on forever...I'll try to touch the highlights in no particular order--Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, How to Train Your Dragon, Rise of the Guardians, Skyfall, Prince of Persia, The Eagle, Epic, Sherlock Holmes
Games: video, of course. Final Fantasy (especially 7, 8, and 13), Legend of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Smash Bros. Brawl, most Mario stuff, Skyrim, Assassin's Creed
Music: I really like country music! And yes, I stand by that decision. :P I actually listen to just about everything from rock to pop to soundtrack. A few favorites: Get Out Alive by Three Days Grace, Blow Me Away by Breaking Benjamin, The Song of The Lonely Moutain by Neil Finn (Hobbit soundtrack), Every Storm Runs Out of Rain by Gary Allen, Would You Go With Me by Josh Turner, I'm Still Here (Jim's Theme) from Disney's Treasure Planet soundtrack, and innumerable others
Books: My favorite genre is one that doesn't have an official name exactly. My friend once termed it "romaction." Basically it's adventure with a little romance thrown in. I'm a fan of epic battles and heros, fantasy, and action. Some of my favorite books would be the Lord of the Rings trilogy, various Star Wars novels (especially the Republic Commando series!!!!!), The Eagle of the Ninth, Alex Rider, The Scorpio Races, Pip and Flynx series, The Dresden Files, and Young James Bond. I like a little sci-fi, but I'll tell you straight off that I am not a fan of Twilight or anything to do with zombies, handsome dead guys, fallen angels, and the like. In my opinion, there are WAY to many books written about them, and one day I'll change that trend.
Heroes: some of my favorite characters from various series: Squall Leonhart, Cloud Strife, Vincent Valentine, Link, Aragorn, Samwise Gamgee, Faramir, Gandalf, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Kal Skirata, Sean Kendrick, Dastan, Jack Frost, Eugenides (Queen's Theif series), Will Treaty, Halt, Daniel X, Fang (Maximum Ride)
I love English, tolerate math, and am a junior in college. Eventually I hope to be an author of young adult fiction (so I can write something that actually makes sense) and/or an illustrator and a concept artist. My ultimate goal would be to work for LucasArts, but designing for videogames and movies of any sort sounds cool to me.
I have a clutzy yet adorable yellow lab named Sunshine and four cats: Darth Kittius, Mouse, Etain, and Besany.
Alright, enough about me. Enjoy my stories. And share what you think. I'd like to know what you really think of my work. Good bye, good luck, and May the Force be with you!

a piece of advice:
"Someday they may kill me," I said. "But not today. Open the door."
One thing she had discovered in the last few days was that professional soldiers were neither habitually angry nor violent. They didn't even talk tough. They were a mass of contradictions. They washed their clothing and they shaved and cooked and generally conducted themselves like well-behaved Padawans. Then they went out and blew up installations and killed total strangers and cracked bad jokes. Etain was getting used to it, but slowly.
"Is there a plan C?" [Etain asked.]
"Well my ghost player just beat the tobacco juice out of your ghost player!" -Hobbes, after getting into an argument with Calvin over ghost players in baseball (Calvin & Hobbes)
