I already made a post elsewhere, but I figure an introductory post wouldn't hurt. I'm an aspiring writer with a goal to write complex yet exciting fantasy novels. I've begun reading history books, starting with English and Western European history, but eventually plan to branch out into cultures across all continents, as a means to improve my writing, and search for inspiration. While I do read fantasy (mainly high fantasy), I'm also into sci-fi (especially space operas or similar genres) and horror as well. Some of my favorite series include the Crossroads trilogy by Kate Elliot, The Twelve Houses series by Sharon Shinn, the Cassandra Kresnov series by Joel Shepherd, the Sirantha Jax series by Ann Aguirre, and the Spice and Wolf novels by Isuna Hasekura. I also enjoy composing music and playing video games, especially single player RPGs. It seems like a pretty friendly place and helpful place here, so I'm looking forward to posting here.
