I'm here at the recommendation of a friend who's kind enough to allow me to burden her with proofreading my works. As the more perceptive of you will have noticed, that makes me a writer (of sorts). Those that didn't notice are invited to find something shiny to be distracted by.
I was introduced to the fantasy genre by Tolkien's LOTR books, followed shortly by the first couple Harry Potter books and more recently, Terry Pratchett's many discworld novels. I must admit I've enjoyed Pratchett's books most of all and would say he's my biggest inspiration when writing, though nothing I write is as funny as his works.
Currently I'm also juggling being a student, having a job and being a dapper young lad, usually leaving me only the last hours before I go to sleep to actually get some writing done.
Should more information be required, I'm certain you'll find away to request it.
