As an English teacher in Australia, I have had the privilege of sharing my enthusiasm for the craft of writing for over ten years now.

Though I have less time to write for myself than I would like, it's something I am exceptionally passionate about, and take very seriously. I value the relevant and thoughtful feedback people leave on my work, as it's fuel for further inspiration and improvement.

Most of all, I like the idea that a reader can become immersed in a story and truly empathise with my characters, the way I did in my teen years reading Jordan and Eddings. There is something incredibly satisfying and about being able to reconstruct the images from my mind, in someone else's; it is a powerful feeling to think that a reader smiles, cringes, and feels sadness at the same places that I did when I was creating a scene.

Inspiration comes from no one source, and like a ninja strikes most often when I least expect it. I love to sleep, as I'm a very vivid, and often lucid, dreamer, unconsciously weaving stories with full musical accompaniment. Most of the time I'm lucky enough to remember, and elements from many dreams have influenced stories I've written.

I have indulged my imagination for a long time, and recall with great fondness, countless lunch breaks in primary school writing and performing short plays for my classmates. Later in my teens I fell into online roleplaying, enjoying the way stories could be told in a collaborative way. I likened each new storyline to a living novel, a tale of multiple fictional characters entwined in a common setting, but each driven by a different author.

Now, my time is divided between teaching, playing with my two dogs Om Nom and Truffle, writing, and playing computer games.

Please don't ask me for reviews or advertise on my board; I'm sorry, but don't have the reading time.

Something about my original prologue for 'Amarith' has always bothered me; perhaps it's that it centres on a child and is relatively light on action.
      I wrote an alternate prologue some time ago and promptly forgot where I saved it, BUT I found a copy of it recently and finally got around to uploading it. 
      I'd love to know whether you think it's a more fitting start to 'Amarith' or whether you prefer the original.
