I'm thirty years old and I live in the Middle of Nowhere, Illinois. My BA in History is doing me absolutely no good and I dabble in most of the fine arts and in a good many artisan crafts.
I am a storyteller- writing is my passion. I've been known to write some fanfiction- some really ancient Harry Potter stuff and more recent Phantom of the Opera. But I've been focusing more on my original works the past few years. You can find my stories at fanfic.net and it's sister site, fictionpress- my pen-name there is Battlefield Angel (no hyphen).
Other things I am passionate about are music- I'm a lyric soprano who often pinch-hits as an alto as needed; historic costuming- currently I'm totally into the bustle era of the 19th century, though I've put that aside to whip up something quick for an upcoming Faire; history in general- the Civil War, the 16th century and ancient Egypt to name a few. I paint when the mood moves me to; I enjoy making jewelry and painting ceramics as well. I collect music boxes and have a long-standing love affair with Gettysburg and with the country of Wales.
