Hobbies and Favorites
What are your hobbies?
Coloring, photographing random animals, cooking, raising hot peppers and monarch butterflies, spending time outdoors with my pupperonis.
What is/are your favorite book(s) and authors?
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman is probably my all time favorite.
What is/are your favorite movie(s) and TV show(s)?
I'm currently enjoying American God's. I can't wait for the last season of GoT and for Good Omens to start.
How long have you been writing?
I have been writing in one form or another since I was 12 or 13.
What was the first story you wrote that you remember? (Is it finished, and has anyone read it?)
I did some super cringey fanfics back in the day. The first thing I wrote and liked was a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood where Hood was in a cult that served Granny and everyone but the Wolf died eating poisoned cookies.
Tell us a little about your favorite character to write about.
My three favorite characters are Erin, William and Joseph. Erin is the MC of The True Covenant. She is a teenager in the current WIP. She is the daughter of a monster hunter and a mage that retired from the life. She is a pretty crap mage in her own right. She is filled with good intentions and really really bad ideas. William is an elder vampire and the eldest practicing non-lich necromancer in my world. He is an absolute rat bastard, but most people think he's a pretty stand up guy because he does good deeds. They are all done for selfish reasons though. Joseph is a vampire hunter that was turned. He's just shy of 300, a night club owner and a psychonaut. He is deeply religious, which is why he didn't kill himself after he became a vampire. He has been living the life of a family man vicariously through his best friend from WWII.
Tell us a little about a fantasy world you've created.
The world of the True Covenant is the product of a forum RP I ran a long time ago. It is like our own in many ways. There are several organizations playing in the background to maintain the order of the world against magic and monsters. If anyone is interested, I think I still have a write up if all the organizations from back in the RP days
Tell us a little about your current work in progress. How's it going?
It's a long walk from Erin's intro to magic to the destruction of Narrowsville four years later. I've got about two and a half years written.
Have you participated in NaNoWriMo? If so, how has your experience been?
I don't know what that is so no. 🙂
How did you find out about Worldsmyths?
I was referred by another member in a FB fantasy writing group.
What made you decide to join?
It seemed very chill and reminds me of my Gaia days in some ways
What do you hope to gain from Worldsmyths? Friends and feedback 🙂
