   I am a working mom and live in South Africa. I have two small beautiful girls who are my inspiration and joy. I enjoy making up stories for them but also have written some other fantasy short stories. I went to tech and studied art for 2 years but have forgotten much. I hope joining here will inspire me further. I enjoy reading... lots and lots! My favs are Raymond E Feist, Tolkien, Terry Pratchett, David Gemmel, Robert Jordan (although enough is enough now) Terry GoodKind. Oh goodness too many to mention. I also like to listen to industrial, gothic music but am from the old school and having kids am outta touch with the new trends. My husband and myself enjoy pc rpgs and used to play D&D before kids. I work during the day and have the kids to tend to at night so I don’t get much time for artistic expression but do what I can. I hope my stuff will be up to scratch. Some of the art here is my old stuff because I have just started drawing again, but will replace the old with new as soon as I have some in stock. That’s about it. I like Reading, Drawing, Painting, Writing. Favourite books Raymond E Feist, David Gemmel, Tolkien, Terry Goodkind, Terry Pratchett, Anne Rice, Sara Douglas, Tom Sharpe, etc etc Favourite music Industrial Gothic-and some other various stuff
