Busy and temperamental, that would define me. I tend to  take on more than I can chew and I'm the queen of procrastination. I guess I need the pressure of the deadline to get started. But once I'm there I always finish, so don't expect me to stop writing, even if you are begging for it.
I am writing mostly for myself  (I need to practice my written english), and for my teenagers to have extra reasons to complain about me . Not that they are needing any. But you are welcome to like it, review it, comment and complain too. 
Allergies warning: my work is 100% free from highschool, dead guys, 6/8/10  packs, drooling girls, cheerleaders, same gender/family sex, good hearted players, arranged marriage, standard ending/plot.
Possible trace of hot guys/girls, soft hot scenes, nasty fight scenes, romantic stuff.
Ingredients: History, science, humor, sword fight, logic, past/future mix, war, plotting, warriors, twisted villains.
Proportions may vary.
Now you are warned!
