It all started in 9th grade with my English teacher, Kris Nesse. She may have been a die-hard feminist, but she did encourage creativity. For one assignment, she had us write a story out of our imagination. I did, and got a good grade on it. Been a writer ever since. The whole swords and sorcery obsession came later, with my first girlfriend. I discovered this site recently, and decided to give it some of my ideas. Hope people like what I give them!
