I enjoy writing, and reading (maybe too much) and often find myself doodling and singing mindlessly. I have a strange habit of loving fantasy characters way too much, and am a big classics fan (Austen, Brontes, Gaskall, Hardy etc, ) as well as spending my my time with my nose in a fantasy novel :) I like Reading and Writing, obviously, painting (watercolours) and lots of sport, netball, badminton and rounders mainly. Favourite movies Doctor Who! <3 Favourite books The Pellinor Series by Alison Croggon are my all time favourite books, closely followed by the Black Magician Trilogy by Trudy Canavan. Also a big fan of Terry Brooks, William Nicholson, JK Rowling, Cornelia Funke and Christopher Paolin :D Favourite music I like a lot, not overly fussed, more into reading. At the moment im listening to OneRepublic, The Script, Michael Buble and Matt Nathenson :)

Nightingale 3

War is coming, in more ways than one. Peaceful, ordinary life is shattered......for every night there must be a day. Critique and comments wanted and welcome xx

Nightingale 2

Second Chapter of Tanza. Critique and comments wanted and welcome x Expaning on the Spires Community and on Tanza's life, but still leaving a bit of mystery i hope x

Nightingale 1

A new story, set in the same country as Lila, in Altia, but far the north. I wanted to expand on the religion there, and also give a wider scope to the country as a whole. Critique welcome and wanted x Thanks :D

Felix Storm

A sample chapter, trying out a new direction. I really like this idea, although it needs tweeking. My main question though is, forwards or backward? Should i carry on the story from here, building up so you get to know the characters, or write what happened previosly, so you already know and like (hopefully) the characters at this point? Comments please x

Lila the Thief - Chapter 9 - Last Chapter

The last chapter, yay! Do i hear sighs of relief? x Thats it for part 1, but i couldn't leave it there, and have already begun to start the next bit. But i got a bit carried away, because i now have two parralel stories, which combine into one which then carries on. This is one of the parrallel stories, happening at the same time as one about a character called Castalla. But.....i really want to write the combined story now, and have started it, so Castella's 'prologue' will have to come later :) hopefully some more uploads soon, depends how well the next session of writing goes :) Bye Bye for now :D xxxx Comments please x
