I’ve been writing anime fan-fiction for almost twenty-two years now. I started off in highschool with a notebook and pencil when I was fifteen. My first love was Gatchaman, but my newest love is Darker Than Black.
I love writing comedy. It's my strong suit; it comes from reading too many David Sedaris books. I also love to write dramas with an espionage twist. Ray Bradbury is my favorite author, but I don't think I'll ever write anything quite as cool and bone-chilling as he does.
Some of my absolute favorites over the years? Gatchaman, Voltron (Lion and Vehicle), Gundam (all series), Starblazers/ Captain Harlock universe, Cyborg 009, Full Metal Alchemist, Gunslinger Girl, Samurai Seven, Big O, Avatar: Last Air Bender, Weiss Kreuz, Trinity Blood, Darker Than Black. (This list could go on and on) I’m more of an old-school kind of a girl, but I’m branching out into some great manga like like MARS.
Personal Info? I’m in my mid-thirties. I graduated college a year ago with both an English and a History degree. I’m married to a mathematician who has several cats! He's my most awesome beta-reader; I love him very much. He has several good, short stories, but his writing style is really different from mine. I do believe going back to college was a huge help in improving my writing style. (History professors happen to be pickier over grammar than English professors!)
