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.
