Hello from a Fellow Historian!

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.


  1. Hi, H.A. Titus.
    It's nice to meet you.
    What a nice picture.
    Where are you, in it. Where are you now?

  2. Hi Kaye! Nice to meet you too.

    Thanks! My husband took it on our camping trip this summer. We're on the tip of the Keeweenaw Peninsula in Upper Michigan. I live in Marquette, which is also in Upper Michigan. (Although at the time I wrote this post, I was on vacation in Lower Michigan.) :)
