As an English teacher in Australia, I have had the privilege of sharing my enthusiasm for the craft of writing for over ten years now. 

Though I have less time to write for myself than I would like, it's something I am exceptionally passionate about, and take very seriously. I value the relevant and thoughtful feedback people leave on my work, as it's fuel for further inspiration and improvement.

Most of all, I like the idea that a reader can become immersed in a story and truly empathise with my characters, the way I did in my teen years reading Jordan and Eddings. There is something incredibly satisfying and about being able to reconstruct the images from my mind, in someone else's; it is a powerful feeling to think that a reader smiles, cringes, and feels sadness at the same places that I did when I was creating a scene.

Inspiration comes from no one source, and like a ninja strikes most often when I least expect it. I love to sleep, as I'm a very vivid, and often lucid, dreamer, unconsciously weaving stories with full musical accompaniment. Most of the time I'm lucky enough to remember, and elements from many dreams have influenced stories I've written.

I have indulged my imagination for a long time, and recall with great fondness, countless lunch breaks in primary school writing and performing short plays for my classmates. Later in my teens I fell into online roleplaying, enjoying the way stories could be told in a collaborative way. I likened each new storyline to a living novel, a tale of multiple fictional characters entwined in a common setting, but each driven by a different author. 

Now, my time is divided between teaching, playing with my two dogs Om Nom and Truffle, writing, and playing computer games.

Please don't ask me for reviews or advertise on my board; I'm sorry, but don't have the reading time.

Hey Briony
Sort of hoping you remember me hehe
I just wanted to thank you for the dedication you gave me. I love your book so much and I practically spazzed out for a few minutes because I only just saw it. You really don't know how much that means to me especially since, I legitimately love your book, it just, really means a lot.

Your one of my favourite authors too so THANK YOU!!
(Not in anyway sucking up, this is the total truth and I love you, keep doing what your doing!!)

Hey you! I thought you'd want to know, and what better way to get your attention?

I could totally go for a frozen cabin the in woods right now - in fact, I did a lot of the first Amarith in a snowbound cabin in Tasmania after I dumped my ex (best thing I ever did to unlock my creativity again!). 
I don't much like the heat to be honest, and it gets nasty hot here in Melbourne during Summer.

I'm getting back into the planning process now - you have any ideas, I'm all ears!

Mwah.
It has been a long while since I looked at 'Reforging the Vow', but the muse hit me and I finished off Chapter Three - Home.

Sorry it's taking so long, for those who followed - new medication makes it difficult to keep the creative juices flowing.

New Wattpad format has also made it difficult to go back and see who was following Amarith's journey, so I apologise for the mass message.

Happy and safe holiday and writing period!

Briony
