Hello everyone! I am a fantasy lover and have been searching for a good forum that I can be an active member on. I used to get on forums all the time in the past, but it's been a while. Finally a realized I needed to find a community that would have topics I'd care about. I love all things fantasy, mythology, and folklore, so this seemed like a good place to start. So a couple things about me. I'm a professional writer. I've been published in newspapers a few times, including the Detroit Free Press once for my short story Millie and Me. My dream is to be a novelist and I've dedicated my life to the study and passion of writing. I love art too. I love drawing fantasy creatures and characters. Digital art (painting and pixel) is my favorite so far, but I also love sewing. I draw a lot of comics, it goes well in hand with my writing and love for storytelling. My favorite fantasy creature is a dragon, I've long felt a strong connection to them. Probably like most of you here, I'm also a geek, lol. I love MLP, Dr. Who, Firefly, Star Wars, and Soul Eater. I love them all shamelessly. I'm hoping I can meet lots of people here and make some new friends. You can add me on Skype if you like, I'm not shy. Look forward to being apart of the community!
