Author has written 2 stories for Mortal Instruments.
My love of reading and books is how i've found myself in the world of fanfiction.
Im constantly getting obsessed about books and hibernating in my room for days on end until I finish them all.
The majority of books I read are sci-fi or fantasy (TMI, TID, Twilight, Beautiful Creatures, Warm Bodies). I love falling in love with characters and watching the relationships grow but find myself being cynical with chick lit books as they're so ridiculous. In fantasy its a whole new world, theres magic and creatures that don't even exist, which makes it much easier for me to believe whats happening on the page.
ANYTHING can happen in a book so why would you only read about stories in your own world? Books are about escaping our world and the stresses we have in it which is why i'm constantly starting new books to live in.
I've only just started writing at all, mainly for my own enjoyment between books, and the response i've had so far has made me so excited that I can see me writing for much longer :)
