Poll: Who is your favourite Cartwright son in Bonanza? Vote Now!
Author has written 16 stories for Rawhide, National Treasure, Big Valley, Bonanza, and Les Misérables.
I am a 17 year old from England. I am a born-again Christian. I finished school a couple of years ago, having been homeschooled all of my life.
My main passions are horse riding, acting, watching and writing Westerns, reading and writing poetry, reading adventurous fiction, playing the piano, drawing, and spending time with my family.
I would love to be a writer. I would also like to travel - America and Australia being the top places that I long to visit someday.
I have always wanted my own horse, and am really excited to be able to loan a horse!!! My handsome boy is called Finn!
I love going to Disneyland, our family favourite holiday destination! I have been there about seven times now!
I am teaching myself to play the harmonica and accordion (when I have a moment to spare, that is, which is rather rare at present), and hope to learn to play the flute and guitar when I can afford to buy them!
I am doing an apprenticeship at a riding school. I'm also working towards my BHS exams and my ABRS ITA (Initial Teaching Award).
I love going to the theatre and the cinema.
I have done drama since I was three, and love performing in shows. I belong to an amateur dramatic group, and have played various roles in a pantomime called, 'The Twelve Plays of Christmas', Amy in 'Little Women', Heidi in 'Heidi', and have also played the between-maid, a person at the station, and a boy in a paperchase scene in 'The Railway Children'. Two years ago I was in the Agatha Christie play, 'Appointment with Death', and thoroughly enjoyed playing Ginevra Boynton! This year I am in 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and I am playing the White Rabbit.
I LOVE Westerns!
I really love the musical theatre/classic pop boy band Collabro. I saw them live this year which was amazing!
And that just about sums me up!
My top favourite movies and TV series are:
Les Miserables (the new musical movie)
It's a Wonderful Life
Jurassic Park Trilogy
Gone With the Wind
The Sons of Katie Elder
My favourite T.V. series has to be the one and only, 'Dr Quinn Medicine Woman'. I think it's fantastic - the best TV series ever! I hope to post some stories on DQMW soon!
I have recently found the series 'When Calls the Heart'. I love it!
I also like 'Downtown Abbey'. Whilst not usually a period drama fan, I really love this series. I love Tom Branson *sigh*
I have recently come across 'Ponderosa'! I absolutely love it - and (sorry to all Bonanza fans) I think it's way better than the original Bonanza. Of course, I am a little biased being a big fan of Beth Sullivan (writer of Dr Quinn and Ponderosa!).
I really like 'Heartbeat'
I have seen the first season of 'Big Valley' and I love it. Sadly no more seasons out on DVD here in the UK, but watching other episodes on YouTube at the moment. Thank goodness for YouTube!
I really like 'Foyle's War'.
I love watching episodes of 'Lancer' on Youtube. I really wish it was out on DVD. I really like the series.
I also like 'The Monroes' but wish it was on DVD.
I also like the TV series 'Rawhide' and 'Bonanza'.
My favourite Disney (and Disney Pixar) movies:
The Lion King
Toy Story Trilogy
The Little Mermaid
My list could go on. I also love: Tarzan, Cars and Cars 2, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, and many, many more!
As for Disney live action movies, I love National Treasure 1 and 2 and Secretariat! Enchanted is a little too cakey for me in parts - but I still enjoy watching it now and again, and love the way how they incorporate all the other films into this one film.
My favourite books are:
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
The Scarlet Pimpernell by Baroness Orczy
Watership Down by Richard Adams
The Circle C Adventures by Susan K. Marlow
Blue Moon Promise by Colleen Coble
I also love to read the plays of Agatha Christie! And I love Shakespeare's plays!
My favourite shows that I have seen at the theatre are:
Les Miserables (in London!)
Beauty and the Beast
The Lion King
Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
And of course, the amazing Collabro live on stage!!!!
My favourite actors and actresses are:
Jane Seymour, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, and Helena Bonham Carter
My favourite music:
Les Miserables (I love listening to, singing and playing these songs on my piano)
Western theme tunes (like BV, Bonanza, DQMW, Dollar trilogy, The Big Country, etc.)
John Williams' music (War Horse, Jurassic Park, E.T. etc.)
I like country style music too - Olivia Newton John's version of 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' is one of my favourites.
I listen to a mixture of pop - but one of my favourite's would be Olly Murz.
Many thanks to everyone for taking the time to read and review my stories! It is much appreciated! My stats show that I get quite a few hits on my stories - so I would love it if my readers could leave me a little review to let me know what they thought of my stories!!! Thankyou so much. I hope you all like the stories that I publish on here. Enjoy!
ATTENTION BIG VALLEY FANS: I am, as I am sure you all are, anxiously awaiting the release of the rest of the BV seasons. I have emailed both 20th Century Fox and Delta Home Entertainment, the two suppliers of BV on DVD, concerning future releases of Big Valley. Fox replied to me and said that my email will be passed on to those who decide future releases. I thought this was rather promising, and thought that it would help if lots of fans contacted these two companies concerning releasing this fantastic series - it may spur them on a bit, and boy howdy, that's just what we need! So please do email them! It may speed up the releases of the other seasons of this beloved series. Please don't hesitate! I for one can hardly wait to see the rest of this series on DVD with my family!
To anyone who reads my Louise Marie Cartwright stories in the Bonanza section, I have many stories planned, so please do keep an eye out for them. Sorry if it does take me a little while to always get around to writing the next one. I will try to be as quick as possible!
To anyone who follows my Rachel Barkley series in the Big Valley section, I have loads of stories planned, so please keep an eye out for any updates or new stories that I might post. I hope you like my extra character of Rachel that I've added in my stories, and that you enjoy all of the exciting plots that I have planned. I hope to include Eugene in most of my stories as I am really upset that he is hardly in the series! Enjoy my stories!!!
To anyone who might be following my National Treasure story: Please forgive me for being so slow in updating my story. I fully intended to be quicker, but I am afraid I have been getting a bit of writer's block, plus I am getting ideas for different stories, and then I get a bit sidetracked! On top of all that I have been really busy, too! I do not intend to leave this story unfinished. I will try to update it as often as I can.
