If you've stopped by this page, I guess you're wanting to find out a little about who I am, so here goes:
I was born in Philadelphia, USA and raised in Melbourne, Australia, where I currently live with my husband who I was lucky enough to meet at university. Our mutual love of Tolkein, Terry Pratchett and philosophical debate (i.e., being utter nerds :) ) drew us together and keeps us together!
After uni, I somehow managed to turn my backstage audio-tech experience from school into a career turning some of Australia's best loved books (and some not-so-loved!) into audio books. I did that for about seven years and then took about the same time off, as my husband's career took us on an adventure living in Japan and Thailand - all the while practicing writing my own stories.
At the end of my last year in Thailand, 2013, I decided to join Wattpad and let my stories peek into the world and see if anyone peeked back. That so many have is a daily delight and I appreciate every single read, vote and comment so much!
If you enjoyed reading As Long As She Lives - or any of my work - here, I hope you'll consider supporting me by buying a copy of the edited, published version. It's available online in paperback and eBook worldwide at all the usual places and signed paperbacks can be ordered via my website where you will also find links to the most popular online stores! http://www.narrativedisorder.com/books
If you'd like to support my work more generally, you can also visit my creator-funding page at http://www.paypal.me/darcyconroy where you can send any amount my way - every cup of coffee keeps me writing!
Wishing you all love, creativity and courage,
I got my start writing in a place a lot like this one, except it was back in the late 1990s when the Internet came in the mail on discs from a man named Steve Case, and all I wrote about was Star Wars. Since then I've written the same novel several times over and a boatload of short stories. I also went to college, traveled the world a bit, and interned for two publishing companies. I now write and edit professionally. Someday, after I'm famous, I will change this box to read something snappy like, "I make up stories for young people. Sometimes they read them." But for now, we'll stick with this.
The big story I'm sharing on Wattpad right now is called Soulwoven. It's got dragons and necromancers and magic and death, and it's about two brothers and how their decisions shape a world torn between loving and hating itself. It's about a lot of other things too, but that's good for a start. Thanks in part to my Wattpad readers, I Kickstarted its publication in 2013. You can buy it in print or e-book here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IKAXSPG/
I hope you enjoy it.
Also, I sometimes do first-page critiques here on Wattpad. When I do, I always reserve a few spots for my followers, so if you want more info on them, make sure to follow me.
If you like my stuff, you can check me out:
On Twitter (@realjeffseymour), where I sometimes tweet as I write or edit and put up links to interesting things.
On Facebook (facebook.com/realjeffseymour), where I post more links and attach commentary to them.
On my blog (blog.jeff-seymour.com), where I talk about my chapters as I post them, discuss my career as a freelance writer and editor, post yet more links, and occasionally dispense writerly and editorial wisdom.
I go around the world for my job, and I write.
I sometimes remove the books about 45 days after they are completed, as I earn my living by selling them on Amazon, but I like to always start here on Wattpad, and I hope you have time to enjoy all the stories that take your fancy.
It's also great if you are able to vote, as that helps other people find the books.

I'm a sometimes artist, and a full-time budget analyst. And a published writer. My stories have appeared in Writers of the Future Volume 29, Daily Science Fiction, Galaxy's Edge, Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. I'm an active member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) and was a first place winner in Writers of the Future for 2013.
I grew up on a steady diet of Star Trek: TNG, Dragonlance, Drizzt Do'Urden, and King's Quest. My writing is alternately dark and cheeky. Enjoy!
Free to read on Beneath Ceaseless skies: "The Dreams of Wan Li"
Free to read on Daily Science Fiction: "This Doesn't Appear to be the Alien I Paid For"
Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions. I love to talk shop!
UPDATE: I've been getting some requests to read stories and comment. I would really LOVE to, but I've recently been promoted at work and I've three other books I'm working on, so my time is extremely limited. I hope to offer some free critiques in the future, but for now I'm swamped. Thank you for your understanding!
I'm just one of those people who writes things in the hopes that they're good.
I love to act, sing, dance, and write.
Music is my life:
The Civil Wars
Anything broadway (Hamilton, West Side Story, Hairspray, name it!)
It's really hard to pick just one favorite.
I am ridiculously short. Get this- I am so short, I can legally apply for disability where I live. Not even kidding.
Obsessed with Harry Potter, LOTR, and Marvel.
I'm a bit of a binge watcher. I am hooked on Agents of Shield, Agent Carter, The Walking Dead, and Kimmy Schmidt.

I don't do follow-backs, but I might do a critique for ya if you ask nicely.
I currently have my Web Traveler series that I'm working on full-time, and a couple of crap-books that need editing. Someday I'll get to it.
If you check out WT, you have my eternal love.

Yo, yo, yo, guys! So my sister isn't good at introductions, so I'm doing it for her. My sister, who Idk what she goes by online, is the owner and odd person of the account. If you see all the political stuff on this page, chances are it is definitely her.
Ok, now for me!! \('-')/ My name is Zelda, ask me about the video game and I will not be happy. I've been playing violin for about 5 years and i have an art book on Wattpad so check that out! Just skip everything and go to the last few chapters to save your vision.
