Greetings and Salutations!
I am back!
And why not start off the school year with a tag! Infinitely better than having to say three interesting facts about yourself to the class. (My go-to is that I’ve never drunk coffee. That normally angers or confuses people.)
- Link back to the person who created the tag ( Savannah)
- Thank the person who tagged you (thanks, Catwing!)
- Share the tag graphic *see above…*
- Tag eleven bloggers (Welllll… maybe not….)
~Vital Stats and Appearance~

Eye color: …plain ol’ brown
Braces/piercing/tattoos: Pierced ears, but that’s it

Query/pitch: I haven’t queried or pitched before.
Novel (that you wrote): Black Moon Academy Info about that book here
Genre: Fantasy, Dystopian, Some Contemporary
Author: C.S. Lewis because the Narnia books were my childhood, and J.R.R. Tolkien because I give him credit for inspiring me to write my own stories.
Writing music: Chronos music: listen here
Time to write: Evenings. And the occasional Monday morning.
Writing snack/drink: If I’m going to eat while writing, chips. But I usually can’t multitask while writing.

Writing memory: Forcing all of my friends to do this fanfiction Tinkerbell story. I would say what would happen in the next scene, then everyone would act it out.

Wildest goal: Get fanart from someone I don’t know who has read my books.
Um, anyone who has read a book. (That means all of you. I’m watching you. *disappears into the shadows*)
This was supposed to go out Wednesday… *head bangs* but I was drowning in literal stacks of homework.
So you get it Saturday, my freeeeeeeeee day.
I hope you all get nice weather soon.
