I do not do well writing about myself, which is why I live in fictional worlds instead of writing much in a journal. I've been writing for a while now (read: years) and I unfortunately don't have as much time to read or write as I'd like at the moment. I am a big fantasy/sci-fi buff, though I do have a soft spot for some horror. I don't mind reading for people, but due to obligations, it may take me a while to get through a piece.

For people that are interested, here's a rough read order, at least what I had in mind, Things in parentheses can be read whenever.

(Beneath the Iron)
The Lady Penitent
The Desolate Throne
Heart of Flame
Queen of Embers
(The Gemcutter's Daughter)
The Kindly One
(The Fall)
The Mournful King

...and more coming, though that stuff is all in sketch form at the moment.
