    When I was young there wasn't much to do. Apart from a few action figures the only entertainment I had was an old offline PC and a stack of books. Thus most of my childhood was spent sitting at a desk exploring the digital world, or sitting on my bed reading book after book for hours on end.

    I quickly become an avid bookworm.

    At school this was often very apparent. I'd spend my free time reading in the library (I didn't have many friends), and my favorite subject (apart from I.T) was English.

    The earliest story I can remember writing was an adventure story about a farming boy who gets kidnapped and dumped at sea, and must swim to a near-by island and survive all alone. It was mostly just random ramblings strung together with broken sentences and ill flowing words. I thought it was just average, but apparently my teacher thought otherwise. "Ability to hook the reader" I remember she said. I was proud, of course, but I still thought it only average. I'm mentioning this because I believe it was these experiences that "lay the seeds" for my blooming passion for English literature, a passion I hope to grow even further.

    The main authors I've been interested in are: J.R.R Tolkien, J.K Rowling, C.S Lewis, Lemony Snicket, Terry Pratchett and Kathryn Lasky. It's probably obvious by now what sort of fiction I enjoy, but just to be extra extra clear it's mostly fantasy and adventure.

    ...But I like all kinds of creative writing, anything were the words come alive and the scenes flutter and glow inside the mind. Ahem. Yeah.

    To wrap things up here is a single TL;DR to describe me: A Moral-Nihilist, Antitheist, Feminist, Anarcho-Transhumanist, Furry, Therian Freethinker. Fabricator of fables and architect of words (in training :> )

    Indie Game Development, Web Design and Programming, Software Engineering, Writing, Reading, Reading, and LOTS of philosophy 'n music.
