"... I tried to heal my fear with stories, stories which gave me courage, stories which affirmed that ultimately love is stronger than hate. If love is stronger than hate, then war is not all there is."
Madeleine L'Engle, "Walking On Water"
Hello out there, this is me.
These words have stood proudly on the top of my profile for 12 years. Hello. This is me.
This account has gone through its ups and downs. I am no longer a twenty something South African but a 30 something South African simply trying to make it through life. Writing is no longer a hobby to me, but it is a habit. I don’t want to publish, I simply want to write. I want to change people’s lives – one word at a time. I want to infect their mind with my words. However I do this is irrelevant. I just want it to matter. If it doesn’t, I honestly couldn’t be bothered.
Thank you for your patience and bothering to come back.
You can also follow me on twitter here. I also do regular blog posts here. If you want to see what I'm up to on a day to day basis, what I'm working on and what's tickling my thoughts, you can keep track of it at these two addresses.
I also wasn't entirely celibate when it came to writing. I had poured quite a lot of effort into a Mass Effect fan fiction that is a collaboration with another good friend of me. The story isn't very popular, but it is close to my heart because it was the refuge that I used to escape my depression. It wasn't so much work as it was a way of putting one foot in front of the other. You can find the account here:
SAF behind my story summaries means Stand Alone Fic - Those are the ones that would most probably only have one chapter.

Christmas 2008 a fan surprized me with an early christmas present. Unbeknownst to me, she made a sketch of Joanie-Ellen, my original character for some of my Sky Dancers' stories. Please feel free to go and look at it! Thank you very much again to LinneaKou for doing it. It was an absolutely wonderful and delightful surprize:
Music forms a very important part of my life and therefore it's only natural that I use music and certain songs in my fics (as they are what inspire me sometimes). Here is a list of the music that I use in the different stories. Feel free to go and listen to them even if you don't ready any of the particular fiction:
Blood Roses in Winter
For this little fic, I used two Tori Amos songs. Winter and Blood Roses. If you would like to listen to either of the songs, please feel free to follow these links!
The Touch of Green Fire
Within Temptation - What have you done? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Syphwc5Flc
Joxer the Mighty - The lyric that I use for "Captian Constellation" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gIGk9PATvs
Feather in the Wind
The Dance of Lords and Ladies.

Absolutely favorite quote: Meddle not in the affair of dragons, for thou art crunchy and tastes good with ketchup!
Also, always remember: Blessed are the cracked - for it is they who let in the light.
Wise advice. @-;-
