In a dark time, the eye begins to see,
I meet my shadow in the deepening shade;
I hear my echo in the echoing wood--
A lord of nature weeping to a tree,
I live between the heron and the wren,
Beasts of the hill and serpents of the den.
--from "In a Dark Time" by Theodore Roethke

Hello and welcome to you, whoever and wherever you are. My name is Stephen, I'm 43 years old and I live in Cambridge, UK, with my wife and two teenage children.
What is such a tired, ancient relic doing on Wattpad I hear you ask? Well, truth be told, I came on here to see if I could get some feedback on 'School Spirit 1989', a book that I'd written and, as the reviews received so far has been mind-blowingly positive, I'm very glad I signed up.
School Spirit 1989
This is an "incredibly funny" romantic comedy- a will they/won't they epic set across the entirety of the year. Don't listen to me though, read the feedback from people who've finished it:
@JustCurious13 commented, "I loved School Spirit 1989. It was incredibly funny, dark and real."
@leannew94 commented, "I can't believe it's over. This story was so incredible that I can't even begin to describe how much I fell in love with it. It had everything I've ever wanted in a book all rolled into one and I've been enthralled every moment."
@notafairyprincess commented, "I think this is one of the stories I will read and re-read again and again."
@GolgappaKnowsItAll commented, "I thought it was a wonderful story. The best part was that it was all believable...In all, it was the best bitter-sweet experience I ever had :-)."
@happygirl1 commented, "I enjoyed the whole book. It's light-hearted, with lots of humor and just a touch of absurdity :-)....though I did have tears in my eyes occasionally. . ."
@SoullessDaydream commented, "A wonderful story."
Marvin Travolta: The Urban Legend
The sequel to School Spirit 1989. I'm writing this on the hoof, and, for clarity, that means I'm publishing as I go, not that I'm taking a fountain pen to a deer's foot ;-). It will be subject to revision and, if I don't do a good enough job, derision.
There's some other stuff on here- mainly random humorous writing.
Im Herzen ein Kind, ein wenig verrückt, mit verdammt viel Spaß am Leben und einer ewigen Liebe zu melancholischen Texten. Versuche, das zu sagen, was alle denken und bleibe doch auf ewig eine Rebellin, so anders als all die andern.
Ich liebe all die alten Dinge, könnte mich stundenlang in Polaroids von längst vergangenen Tagen verlieren oder in Rocksongs, die ich nur auf Schallplatten hören kann.
Bin die, die Geschichten erzählt, die schon lange in Vergessenheit gerieten und die man nicht immer gerne hört, weil sie wahr sind.
Diese Welt ist ein magischer Ort und mit jedem Schritt, den wir gehen, jedem Tag, den wir erleben, lernen wir ihn ein bisschen besser kennen. Das Leben ist aufregend und eigentlich wunderschön, auch wenn ich's manchmal verfluche.
Ein Leben voller Widersprüche. Eine Jagd ohne Jäger, ein Gefängnis ohne Wächter, ein Herrscher ohne Untertanen.
Willkommen in meiner Welt, in der nichts ist, wie es scheint. Komm mit, Honey, ich zeig sie dir.
»Bevor diese Nacht vorüber ist, werde ich euch beweisen, einem nach dem anderen, dass ihr alle Monster seid, genau wie ich.«

Greetings, to the people who are reading this. How goes it?
I'm a semi-aspiring author, who is usually busy exploring new genres. If you're looking for a parody that mocks most things, check out: 'The mis-adventures of (a) Main Character.'
Let's see, hobbies... I can whistle really well? Hence my username. I aspire to be on par with Geert Chatrou, but have resigned to my fate as merely an above-par whistler.
More hobbies? Reading, obviously; finding new music on Pandora; recently, I made the grave mistake of keeping my Netflix account past its 30-day free trial, so my writing productivity has dropped to a virtual zero; I have more pictures of Link than myself in my room, so this might indicate a slight Zelda obsession.
In my free time (read: when I'm not on Netflix, studying or asleep) I'm either writing or fumbling over new ukulele chords

I write garbage, not best-sellers.
I currently have two on-going series, but one of them is a bit on a hiatus. Hope you guys enjoy the crap that I call my stories!
