Who am I? A rather hard question to answer. . . but, my name is Melissa, and I'm a Christian. I'm sort of shy and quiet. I intensely love to read, especially fantasy stories. J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling, Lloyd Alexander, Wayne Thomas Batson, Suzanne Collins, and Jane Austen are some of my favorite authors. I read a lot. I go quite deep into the story sometimes and people have to call me over and over to get me to come back.
I'm an authoress, too. I passionately love to write, so much. . . I can't possibly explain it. I'm writing a novel, well, a trilogy, actually. I finally learned how terribly important it is to write no matter what, even if you don't feel like it, so now my rather large project is moving along faster.
I'm Irish, and I love Elves; I wish I could really be one. I love trees and ferns and the sea and mist and rain and fog. . . and twilight, and stars, and the moon, and Enya music. The Olympic Peninsula is my favorite of all places on earth.
I also like cats; I have two of them, Kissa and Lindon, a sweet tortoiseshell and a mischievous Maine Coonish tabby. And I love homeschooling, and archery, and sewing, costumes and things.
Well, I suppose that's all for now. I hope you enjoy my writings. :)
