About Me

Name: Riley Gwen Layla Wood

Birthday: March 15, 1993

Age: 20

Zodiac Sign: Pisces

Favorite Color: Orange

Favorite Music: Classic Rock

Favorite Band: The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Doors

Favorite Animal: Wolf and Tiger

Eye Color: Brown

Hair Color: Brown

Siblings: Younger Sister

As you can tell from my little About Me section, I am Riley Hale. Born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama. Living, for now, right outside of Huntsville, close to the Tennessee border. It bites. Hopefully, one day, I can move out to California; San Diego, specifically. Or even Sumter, South Carolina, and live with my cousins.

Anyway, as you can see, I write fanfic for The Outsiders. I read it when I was in eighth grade, only 13 years old. Even at 19, no other book has touched me the way that one did. I've really gotten a whole new perspective of people. I'm an aspiring writer, and I decided to write on here, as well as a few other places, just to get some feedback on what is good and what areas I'm lacking in. So, if you feel obliged, then by all means, read my stories and tell me what you think.

Note: Soda will always be alive in my world. Dallas and Johnny are sometimes, but other times it's convenient for them not be. Call me childish if you want, but Dallas holds a special place in my heart, he was always my favorite character. His death hit me hard. I like Johnny. He was never my favorite, but his death hit me hard as well, and when Dallas died too, it was like Hinton decided to kick me when I was down. I can't take another one of them dying, especially when it's Soda. I can see his death sparking a chain of reactions, and none of them would end up good. Plus, I'd just be sad. Therefore, Soda lives.

Love, peace and chicken grease.
