Want to know more about me? I'm a wanderer of the internet, addicted to snacks and stories! I suffer from inherent laziness, chronic lateness and have a weakness for alternative music.

Love me some books, anime, art, charismatic characters, trench coats and cats. Song writing is a significant part of my life, and when I see people defacing books to decorate their shop fronts and rooms, it hurts me. Seriously, guys, don't do it. You wouldn't tear a person's limbs from their spines and hang them from the ceiling, now would you?

Unless you would. I guess a few of you might.

I write for many reasons, and a few of those reasons are selfish ones. Primarily, I take great satisfaction from exploring the contradictory nature of the human race. I want readers to experience humanity at its keenest, in triumph or tragedy, and to come away from a book with something that they value. A pretty neat old man, by the name of George R. R. Martin, once wrote: "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies... the man who never reads lives only one."

I don't know about you, but I plan on living at least a thousand and one lives before I die, just to challenge the assertion in the quote above. You're more than welcome to join me!

Stay toasty,
