Author has written 6 stories for Wheel of Time, Book of Amber, and Harry Potter.
My previous bio sucked no end, so I'm writing a new one. I'm almost as bad at writing bios as at thinking of titles for my stories. I'm 21, a student at the uni, third year, and that's about all you need to know about my RL.

Fave authors: Roger Zelazny, JRR Tolkien, JD Salinger, Terry Pratchett, Robert Jordan, Douglas Adams, Richard Adams, Donna Tartt, GRR Martin and the like. Yes, it's mostly fantasy I read.

Otherwise interested in: some history (which helps me seem better educated than I actually am), mythology, languages (esp. the dead or the small ones - out of shere perversity, I guess). As you might have noticed, English is not my native language (or should I say "mother tongue"?) but I think I'm doing quite well.

As for writing: I have been doing it since I was 5 or something... more seriously since I was 13 (but all the teenagers try to write. Luckily for the world, most of them don't continue). And myself... I'm either still immature enough to think of myself as an "aspiring writer" (damn it, what a terrible phrase); or I'll really do something with this writing of mine. Of lately, I have been trying to make something more serious out of it. At least, I think it will stay a favoured hobby. And maybe... just maybe... I'll publish one day.

Since I'm ranting, I may as well continue...

Fanfiction: I used to hate it, now I love it. I have this love/hate relationship with most of my fics. I don't have many of those, though. They are mostly in Amber fandom, but also in Wheel of Time... And once I've sinned in the direction of Harry Potter. Oh well, we all have our dark secrets... I might even post it here one day ;)

Time for my favorite quote:

"I have claimed that Escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which 'Escape' is now so often used: a tone for which the uses of the word outside literary criticism give no warrant at all... Evidently we are faced by a misuse of words, and also by a confusion of thought. Why should a man be scorned, if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if, when he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls? The world outside has not become less real because the prisoner cannot see it. In using Escape in this way the critics have chosen the wrong word, and, what is more, they are confusing... the Escape of the Prisoner with the Flight of the Deserter." - J.R.R.Tolkien, "On Fairy Stories"
