Writing and dancing!
Favorite Books:
As I said, I'm a big fan of mysteries. "And then there were none" by Agatha Christie is a favourite of mine, creepy and not quite the traditional detective story. I also like things that explore the psychology of humans, for example "A Judgement in Stone" by Ruth Rendell and books that ask us questions, like "My Sister's Keeper". As a reader, I can't bear to be spoon-fed, and would rather read something that asks me a question than tells me the answer.
Favorite Authors:
Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie top my list. I also love Anne O'Brien and Andrea Ashworth.
Favorite Movies:
I love the St. Trinian's films (having once attended the school that inspired them!). I also love anything Hitchcock, my favourite being "The Lady Vanishes".
Favorite Music:
Second Person ftw! If you don't know them - and most people don't - check out this AMAZING band that is like nothing else. I'm also a big fan of Paloma Faith.

Probably, but that person is not me.

If you could have one thing for 2014, what would it be?

Congrats to sitting and Maggie Rascal, and of course to all entrants for your wonderful stories... and thank you!!! :D It's definitely better than a BAFTA (which is on my to-do list, by the way! Who wants to be my plus-one? :P)

Topic: What Would Your "Thing" Be?
Posted: 23 Jun 2012 14:59

If you're talking about the actually typing (or writing) process, then I don't have a 'thing'. But I tend to do most of my thinking not at my computer, usually in the hours when I'm lying awake in bed trying to sleep, and I can't really think things through at any other time... turn of the night, everyone else is asleep... God bless insomnia!

A Key for a Key - part 2

Before the creak of keys in the door, came the cacophony of jeers. It swelled in volume until almost painful on the ears, dying to a faded moan after a few long minutes. The man, in the end cell, closed his eyes in the hope that it would soften the assault on his ears. It did not. Four times a day the yelling occurred, never was it necessary. Animals they were, not men, snarling and howling...

A Key for a Key

"Ayyyy?" Abigail gritted her teeth. Why couldn't her father ever, not once, manage her full name? She was simply a sound, a noise emitted from between filthy lips when he needed to refer to her. The screech of her first initial was his calling-cry when he wanted her, or a whine when she wasn't good enough. "Coming, Father." She picked up the tray, heavy with ale and meat, curling her...

Recommended Read The Nell Gwyn Chronicles - 1

Nell The knock was soft, but made us both jump nonetheless. “Don’t get it,” Jamie whispered in my ear, “Whoever it is will go away.” Ignoring him, I climbed to my feet and straightened my skirts. “If you’ve come with gifts or flowers, you’re supposed to leave them at the stage door...” I trailed off. A pair of sparkling gold and diamond buckles adorned shining black shoes. A cloak...

The Nell Gwyn Chronicles - 2

Nell I liked him. I’ve never been a girl to beat about the bush and I certainly didn’t intend to start with the King. In truth, however, the idea of meeting the man himself had set my stomach fluttering, terrified that the only small talk I knew how to make – bawdy tavern-girl humour – would not amuse royalty. Yet I was the brazen one, the girl whose cock-sure temperament...

The Nell Gwyn Chronicles - 3

Charles I laughed as her eyes widened to the size of gold coins, her plump little lips dropping into an infinitely kissable O. For a moment she was speechless as she took in the size of the room, the gold leafing of the walls and the heavy velvet curtains. Her footsteps echoed as she clicked towards the bed and ran her fingers through the luxurious fur, closing her eyes in ecstasy as...

The Nell Gwyn Chronicles - 4

Charles “Charles!” My brother clicked his fingers in front of my face and I blinked, jolted back to the present. “Hmm?” “What is up with you this afternoon? Your head is in the clouds; you barely listen when we call your name.” James’ voice was light-hearted, but I could see the weariness in his eyes. “Apologies,” I murmured, but I was still distracted, Nell’s ghost still...

The Nell Gwyn Chronicles - 5

Charles Sweet lord, she was beautiful. My eyes widened, as though by doing so they could take in more of her shape, the glistening of water on her soft skin, the spirals of steam that shrouded her heart shaped face in mystery. The tiniest of groans escaped my lips as she rose up through the water. Without so much as glancing around, I heard her voice call out to me, “Charles, if you...

The Nell Gwyn Chronicles - 6

Nell “All right, all right, break it up! What’s going on?” I picked up my skirts and ran towards the fight. The mob jeered to see a girl push her way through, but when it became clear that I intended to break them up myself a couple of men stepped in to help me, disentangling Roberts from the ugly man and pulling them apart. Finally under control, they were held within spitting...

The Nell Gwyn Chronicles - 7

Nell “Are there no depths to which you would not sink, Rochester?” The younger man laughed unashamedly. “When my lord and master provides me with excellent wine and even better women, the least I can do is lower the tone.” Charles smirked, his hands tightening around my waist. “Help yourself, my man, but keep your hands off this one. She’s mine.” Even after so long, the words...

Editor's Pick He Had Blue Eyes

That summer, it was too hot. We didn’t have a thermometer, and even if we had, the little red lines and numbers wouldn’t have meant much to me. But I knew that it wasn’t normal. It couldn’t be. By the time the church clock struck ten it was already too stifling to venture outside. The sun had swelled to an angry pulsing ball of fire which I had come to regard as evil, lancing my eyes with...
