Harriett Randall

Ever since I was a child, I've lived in a world of fantasy such as: "The Three Little Pigs", "Snow White", and "Cinderella". While I still love these short stories, gone from me are the desires for innocence, happy endings, and the life lessons these stories taught. My short fantasy stories are introductions to the role-playing charecters in the world of Bethica.  The characters are dark; the stories poetic, tragic... with no desire to withhold the reality of uncertainties life is sure to bring. I like I love Shakespeare for his genius with tragedy. I love all kinds of music, so there is no musical category where I'd fit only. Most of all, I love the world of fantasy, where you can change life's ending or beginning at will. If we all could do that, it wouldn't necessarily be a better world, but surely a more interesting one. Favourite movies Thanks to my sons, my favorite Scifi movie would have to be "Star Wars." But my most favorite is any movie with a big monster; I could watch T-Rex make a cameo in any scene. Imagine the ending to "Romeo and Juliet" with T-Rex holding both in its mouth. And my favorite TV show is "Star Trek." Favourite books I'm still in love with the fantasy books I read as a child; my favorite will always be, " The Wizard of Oz." Favourite music Christian, R&B, Jazz, Blues, Classical, and Country are my favorite sounds.
