I have been writing an epic fantasy novel, "The Stone + The Feather" for more years than I had hoped and as I'm am an artist now starting doing it as a graphic novel as well. I originally came up with it while riding my horse in the woods as a kid.
I have some other ideas I would like to make into graphic novels so I am currently working on learning how to use computer graphic art programs. I get held back by computer memory and time as I work a lot of hours full time and read a lot too. I do my best thinking while doing something else at the same time, like coming up with story ideas while riding, or listening to music, or doing artwork while watching shows.
I am a big fan of Stargate SG 1 and Atlantis, and other sci-fi shows like Serenity/Firefly, Smallville, Supernatural, etc and love martial arts movies and medieval settings.
Interests include reading manga, sci-fi and fantasy, martial arts, horses - equestrian, art, music, anime and movies
or anything with good looking guys fighting.
I have college BA's in both fine art and history. I especially like the Black Death and the Renaissance.
I have trained horses professionally,worked in a museum, taught horse sculpture in a museum, owned an art gallery, worked in a library and in schools.
For a career now, I work with troubled teens/ juvenile delinquents in a locked residential school-
Think of it like Hogwarts meets reform school in the desert. with a tan
I like to write and draw and read and to explore places either mentally or psychically and spend a lot of time online cause I don't sleep and usually busy cause I have a brain that does not shut off.
My favorite authors are Tolkien, Tad Williams, Mercedes Lackey, Terry Goodkind, Terry Prachett and Ayn Rand, Edgar Allen Poe, Ray Bradury, Robert Frost.
Currently taking Korean karate - Kukyidou and Judo.
In the future I would like to learn to read and or speak Japanese.
I listen to a lot of music too. Favs include Nightwish, Apocalyptica, HIM, Versailles, Linkin Park,Within Temptation, Amorphis, Bach, the Gazette - metal, classic and celtic and visual kei

My Plus One and I have been together for 9 years, he is a tech, and on the side a musician, song/scriptwriter, keyboards and bass, piano, playwright (fantasy, scifi scripts) gamer addict and amateur archaeologist
his band/ songs - Luminatus (symphonic metal if you like evanescence or nightwish check it out) http://www.reverbnation.com/luminatus4
Webtoons I like that are not on mal yet include
The Friendly Winter, Melo-holic, Superior Day, Moon-Ah, Utopia, The Stalker, Attaque, the Wrong Room, The Ultimate Legend- Kang Hae Hyo etc
And a bunch of others...
I'm reading a Korean novel in translation called "The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor" and watch some dramas.
I've been watching asian dramas now, previously I watched lots of martial arts movies, I just watched 49 days, Boys Over Flowers, Secret Garden and City Hunter.
I actually started watching some anime as a little kid cause my best friend was a Japanese boy, but he returned to Japan. I got into it again later from fantasy and sci fi and then discovered 7 years ago I really enjoyed reading shoujo and a lot of others. It's the perfect blend of art and story and I'm addicted to manga. lol
I have a lot of series that I love reading, and I enjoying discussing chapters with people as the people irl that I know don't read what I read, hence online.
Yes I unabashedly do enjoy shoujo! I like romances and fantasy most of all, I also love supernatural stories and mysteries, but I also like to read seinen, josei and some shounen, crime dramas etc. I prefer reading over watching, but when I watch anime my preferences are different from my reading ones, I prefer more action and supernatural or fantasy or mystery and slice of life to watch.
Right now I am trying to complete more of the ones on my too huge list!
