My username comes from the words of wisdom by the 19th century lunatic Mr William Herondale who is a character in the 'Infernal Devices' trilogy by Cassandra Clare.  

I used to go by Maggie, which is my real life nickname. You can still call me that because I like to use pretentious phrases like nom de plume!

I'm dyslexic. I started writing as a challenge to myself and to get the voices in my head to shut up, but I don't know if it's worked because the voices are too loud.

I'm a twin. I think my sister is the evil one but most disagree. I've found hitting them doesn't help my cause.

I critique. I don't claim to be an expert but years of being an extremely picky reader has given me insight into what makes a good story. If you want feedback just PM me - any requests on my message board will be ignored/ deleted. The stories must have decent grammar and have been proof-read. I'm not saying it has to be perfect but it is unfair for you to ask me to read something you cannot be bothered to read yourself. Also, nothing with stupid titles.
I reserve the right to decline the request.
