Hi!  I'm Bethan, or Aschenputtel, which is German for Cinderella.  I'm enthusiastic about languages.  I enjoy procrastinating, of which daydreaming is my favourite form.  I'm also a huge lover of mythology, all things grape flavour, and silent films.  I'm an unlikely fan of goth and dark cabaret music, because where else is better to look for twisted inspiration? A big shout out to The Cure, Jack Off Jill, Dresden Dolls, The Birthday Massacre and Morgan Kibby in all her incarnations among many others.

In books, I have a weakness for murderers, blondes and the gruesome. Fairytales were my first love, and my love of other worlds spreads across many genres, though my heart resides with steampunk and dystopia.
