My favourite genre of books are fantasy and horror (from Harry Potter to Artemis Fowl, Terry Pratchett to James Herbert) but a good comedy never goes amiss either (Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy? Classic!). I write fantasy, but at the same time I try to diversify with as many different genres as possible - as long as they're still considered fantasy.

A few of my older works are quite immature in skill but the more I write the more my writing matures and the better I become. I can be inspired by the smallest of thing so I'm always writing new works, but seeing as though my inspirations are usually just ideas and very rarely plots, most of them don't reach their full potential.

Books are, and always have been, my life. The books I read are my greatest love and the books I write are my greatest passion. I'm all about spontaneity, living in the moment and embracing your inner child. Peter Pan is my personal hero.

Favorite Authors: J. M. Barrie, Charles Rutledge, J. K. Rowling, James Herbert, Christine Feehan, Anne Rice, Alison Croggon, Robin Hobb, Eoin Colfer, Douglas Adams, Richard Laymond, Terry Pratchett, Diane Duane, @Lani_Lenore, @JakeVanderArk, John Twelve Hawks, Diana Ilinca

Favorite place to read: Under the shade of a Willow tree.

I can't live without: My books.

If I could be any literary character, I would be: Peter Pan (Yes, I realise he was a boy. I don't care, and when you're that young, it doesn't make a difference anyway)

Writing is my passion so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Please feel free to leave me a message or comment, I love feedback and meeting new people.

The only other websites I post my work to is authonomy, worthyofpublishing and Figment and all of them are under the name Kaytlyn A. Hand. So if you see my stories anywhere else or under any other name, please let me know immediately. Thank you.

Since my work has been getting so few responses lately, I've decided to add only the first few chapters of all the novels and Novelettes I've been working on.  If one or more of them gets lots of res...
