It's been a while since we've had an interview and this has been sitting on my proverbial desk wanting to be posted... so here you go! Say hello to GRACEYN :icongraceyn:
1. Tell us about you. What would you like the readers to know about you?
Well, I’m a gamer and avowed geek. I love technology and gadgets and futuristic ideas and would really prefer if the Singularity got here as soon as possible. These days I spend my time developing software and freelance editing, but increasingly I think of myself as a capital-w ‘Writer.’
My husband says I’m a gypsy and a wanderer. I don’t know what he’s talking about, but since he’s my best friend, editor, and gaming buddy, I let him say what he wants.
2. I see that you're a Digital Artist and a Writer. Is there one that you prefer over the other? Why?
For me, one doesn’t exist without the other. The art inspires my writing, and vice versa. But if I were forced to choose one, it

Art comes in different mediums and the Muse is as fickle as they come when inspiration strikes. Some pick up the proverbial pen and write while others pick up a stylus and draw. While still others create tangible costumes of characters we'd like to be. To be able to a combination of these talents is an awesome thing...one such person is GingerAnneLondon ...read on to find out more about her wonderful talents.
First tell us about you... what you want us to know about you
This is a bit tough for me since there is so much about me that I would need to write a novel in order to explain it all. I'll start by saying I'm an artist who loves to express myself in every way I can. Whether it be through costume, music, writing, acting or illustration. I'm always keeping myself busy and currently for my career I've been focused on a novel series titled Phoenix, which has been picked up by some top New York City publishing companies. As much as I love cospla
Is Creativity Dead?I’ve been asking myself that a lot lately seeing the overwhelming amount of remake and retakes in the movies today. It seems what was old is new again. Do today’s movie makers think that the audience won’t remember the original material? Or is it that they think we have outgrown the subject matter because we are adults and that stuff is beneath us?More Like This
It seems like everything I grew up watching and reading is now a movie. I wanted Ender’s Game to be made into a movie, but I haven’t seen the movie for fear that it will ruin the experience reading the novels gave me originally.
The new Hobbit movies have created a controversy because Peter Jackson dared to rewrite Tolkien by adding characters that weren’t in the novel along with adding new characters that were never in any of the novels. Ironside reboot wasn’t given much of a chance to succeed.
I don’t care for most of the Horror remakes done today especially the ones t
Introduction to the GCMGALACTIC COMMONWEALTH OF MANKINDMore Like This
(from chapters Introduction and Order of GCM, from textbook to the course Introduction to the History of Mankind, 1st trimester of the Blue Sands Academy)
"Eight centuries from The Last War, there is peace in the Galaxy. Nearly a quarter of the Milky Way Galaxy was colonized since the moment Mankind left its cradle fifteen hundred years ago, and most of that was done during the GCM era of peace. Estimates, published at the eight hundred year anniversary of The First Assembly, talked about 2 500 star systems inhabited by more than six trillion people. Considering inevitable delay in interstellar communication, this estimate is surely undervalued.
GCM is the first and only really unified association of Mankind. Historical extravagancies, caused by absurd and unscientific beliefs about differences between human beings, based on appearance, capability or birthplace, were overcome long ago, as well as ideas about superiority of some social or
