Snarly elves are my specialty. As many of my scattered reviews have mentioned, my elves -- actually a mixed elf/human population -- are different even though magic is a cornerstone of their society. The general tone? My Half-Elven stories are fast paced, thrilling, and exciting
Yeah, I do the fantasy writer thing, mostly in the world of the Far Isle Half-Elven. You can learn more about the history and heroes of the Marches at my website: http://www.half-elven.com. You can also read excerpts of some works in progress.
An "early writer", a sixth grade writing assignment started my "writing career". The teacher asked for a short story for an English assignment. She got a Nancy Drew pastiche -- "The Clue of the Clay Cats" -- and gave me a "C" because, at 25 handwritten pages, I hadn't finished the story. [Most of the other kids only wrote two to four pages. *snarl*, *snarl*] The next summer, I finished a novel-length MG story.
After five different "writing careers", I now write fantasy. The Half-Elven take up much of my time, but I also explore the world of Faerie and ghosts in some of the middle grade fiction.
