Howdy to all my fellow historians!
Grace said to introduce ourselves and talk about our writing, so here goes--forgive me if this sounds too much like an autobiography!
I'm a 22-year-old who has been fascinated with speculative fiction since I first read The Lord of the Rings when I was 12. Thanks to my husband's supportiveness, I'm able to stay at home and attempt to corral the characters who think they should have the run of the house. ;)
I stumbled across Avenir Eclectia early this year, shortly after Grace started posting. I read the couple of the stories that were up and thought the concept was awesome--sort of like the Star Wars universe novels, but with a Christian slant and a mix of genres. I also thought that it would be a challenge writing stories for AE because the word count was so low, and I have a habit of being overly wordy. It has proved as challenging as I thought, but it's also been a ton of fun being a part of the AE community and reading all the other incredibly creative stories everyone comes up with!
I write the stories about Cara, an orphan girl, Pieter, a paroled smuggler/bored rich kid, and Reeder, a messenger. All of my stories so far can be read here. I'm super excited to continue these two storylines and have plans for tying the storylines together in a (hopefully exciting) adventure.
Besides Avenir Eclectia stories, I'm in the middle of rewriting my epic fantasy novel Half Blood and writing a steampunk serialized novel, Falls the Shadow, with two other authors at The Lost Scribes blog.
