Nancy Chamberlain

Hey there! My name, as you can see above, is Nancy. The picture that you can see to the side is of me... Alright, now for some facts about me... Real Name: Nancy Quinn (the name above is my pen name) Hair: long, blonde, and wavy Eyes: bright blue Skin: Fair Age: 21 Birthday: June 18th, 1987 Marital Status: Married to the most wonderful man in the universe! Religion: Lutheran Christian Siblings: Brother: James, 24 - Sister: Margaret (Meg), 14 Favorites: Color: Blue - Authors: Tamora Pierce and Stephenie Meyer - Movie(s): Lord of the Rings, Princess Bride, Pride & Prejudice, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc. - Male Actor: Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, and Johnny Depp - Female Actor: Keira Knightley, and  Julie Andrews.  Update: 5/29/09 -  No new updates recently... hoping to maybe have something to update sometime in the near future. I have two silly and fun-loving muses. Larien (my creativity) the mischevious female black cat with light blue eyes; and Kyra (my inspiration) the gentle female gray and brown wolf. They are loyal and sweet, but love to wander off in exploration and leave me to sit in frustration as far as my writing goes. They are also picky and will not let me write anything that they do not like. But when the mood strikes them, they will sit by my side as I write the things they bring to my mind. **Big News** I'm MARRIED!! My husband is named Jonathan and we were married on June 28th, 2008. We are so excited to be married and are so happy together! We're so in love!! ^_^ Note: Almost all of the stories published here are more than a few years old. Therefore they are not my best or most up-to-date work. I might post some more recent stories up here in the future, but I am not sure yet if I will. I hope to publish my most recent novel, and will post an announcement here if that does indeed happen. Wish me luck! ^^   My Stories: Ayven: This is one of my more recent stories and one of my favorites. I love vampires and this is my first vampire story (of two I've written so far). It's about a girl named Ayven who has her world turned upside-down when she meets a dark stranger... Rose Princess: Here is my version of my favorite fairy tale 'Beauty and the Beast'. I have been wanting to write this story for years and finally I had the flow going! I'm so happy and I'm pleased with the way it turned out! I hope you all like it! Please comment! Elven Secrets: About a girl who accidentally stumbled into the Elvish realm and finds out that she is a rare Half-blood (half-Elf, half-human). I use the Elvish language a lot in this story (I used a dictionary that I found online) so be warned (I do provide translations at the end of each chapter). Kyla's Story: This is one of my first long, finished stories! It's about a Mage girl named Kyla who is being possessed by a dark Mage. She lives in a world I created. Enjoy! Kyla's Song: The sequel to Kyla's Story! Yay! ^_^ Kyla and Conan (her new Mage teacher) go on an adventure together (well, their second one, counting the one they went on in Kyla's Story. ^_^) Have fun! Kyla's Gift: The sequel to Kyla's Song! More adventures for Kyla and Conan! This is an unfinished story that wont be finished anytime in the near future... sorry everyone! ;_; but I just dont see myself completing this anytime soon... and I wasnt getting anywhere with it, which was agonizing me... I hope you'll all forgive me! My Poems: The Unicorn: A poem about the magic and beauty of Unicorns. The Sound of Unicorns: Another poem about the magic and beauty of Unicorns! Also: To any artists out there!!! (even if you aren't an elfwood artist) I would love it if you want to draw any of my characters (since I can't draw to save my life), just be sure to e-mail me and let me know... and I'd like to see the finished results so e-mail them to me or give me a link to your page so that I can see... and be sure that if you are an elfwood artist to say that the character is mine and to put a link to my page in the description.... sorry if I seem to have a lot of guidelines.... I just am really possessive when it comes to my characters... (aren't we all with our creations....) thank you! ^_^ I like My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, My husband and the love of my life Jonathan, Writing, Reading, Music, Singing, Horseback Riding, Photography, Ice Skating, Movies, Dancing Favourite movies Blood Ties, Buffy, Charmed, Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Princess Bride, Pride and Prejudice, Pirates of the Caribbean, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Eragon, Harry Potter, Underworld Favourite books Anything and Everything by Tamora Pierce, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, The Host, Pride and Prejudice, and more!
