Author has written 8 stories for Friends, and Avatar: Last Airbender.

Name: Kristin

Age: much too old to be watching A:TLA, let alone writing fanfiction about it

miscellaneous: mother of two daughters, married, IT-professional, crazy about writing, wannabe novelist

When I am not writing, I'm reading. Here a book list of books I loved, everything from high literature to romance novels.

19th century literature:

- "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte (just wonderful)
- "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen (sweet and unforgettable)
- "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte (dark story, but so great)
- "The tenant of Wildfell Hall" by Anne Bronte (a truly adorable hero)
- "North and South" by Elizabeth Gaskell (great love story)
- "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott (sweet and inspiring)
- "Vanity Fair" by William Makepeace Thackeray (huge book, cynical, but with a lot of great characters)

contemporary authors writing fantasy or historicals

- "Lord of the Rings" by J.R.R. Tolkien (well, that has to be on a reading list, right?)
- "Howl's Moving Castle" by Diana Wynne Jones (funny and imaginative)
- the "Outlander" novels by Diana Gabaldon starting with "Outlander" (sexy, intriguing, and interesting)
- "The Clan of the Cave Bear" and all the books of the series by Jean Auel (everything you always wanted to know about the Stone Age and never dared to ask)

pee-your-pants funny stuff is

- "The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole" by Sue Townsend

I'm pretty sure you'll find all those books in your local library, I know I did.

The guilty pleasures list - romance novels of all subgenres
(I know, some people count Gabaldon's and Auel's books there, too, but I don't.)

- almost every book by Mary Balogh, she writes just that sort of romance of which I cannot get enough. Thankfully, she has a huge backlist.
- Georgette Heyer, of course. Besides being just plain fun, those books give you a really authentic feeling for the Regency era, and are invaluable for your vocabulary. (SATs, anyone?)
- The Bridgerton Series by Julia Quinn, especially "The Duke and I"
- "Lord of Scoundrels" by Loretta Chase
- "The Raven Prince" by Elizabeth Hoyt
- the Psy/Changeling series by Nalini Singh
and if you are into tall, dark and handsome vampires:
- "Undead and Unwed" and the books of the series by MaryJanice Davidson (sexy and funny!)

You can't get romances in your local library I am afraid, but you can buy them used for very little money.

Recent News and status of "Strength" - February 2012

I really dont know if I'll ever finish this story. I have plans to write at least one more chapter, so you won't have to wonder what'll happen to Sokka. Otherwise... I just don't know.
