Hello! I am very excited to be here, sharing my Super Secret Project with a community of fellow book lovers.

I am well on my way to old and gray, but I have been and always shall be a fangirl at heart. I grew up with Kirk, Spock, and McCoy; transferred my affections to Picard and Data; longed to be a Pevensie... l followed the One Ring all the way to the Silmarillion by sixth grade; fell in love with the Dread Pirate Roberts, Edward Scissorhands, Fitzwilliam Darcy, and Edward Rochester (though, dude. Issues)... I even started to learn Japanese so I could better appreciate the worlds of hanyou, hitokiri, and boys possessed by the Juunishi (nihongo wa muzukashii desu yo). I may or may not hold strong opinions about red-headed princes in pince nez -- and yes, how can I resist Bumbershoot Hackensack...?

And now I am making my own world, full of my own characters, whom I love not a spot less. But friends... I am alone with them! So here I am, to share them.

Thanks for clicking. Feel free to say Hi! :)
