My Bio
Hello! I'm Seitou (or Calanthe if you follow me on Tumblr). Recently, I've completed graduate school and gotten my MA in English, and now I'm eagerly pursuing a career as a novelist. My area of interest is 19th century Gothic fiction, which informs nearly all of my writing (the subject of my thesis was the vampire and Victorian Decadence :D). I'm also interested in fairy tales and folklore as well as the revenge tragedies of the late 16th and early 17th centuries.

I'm not as active on dA as I once was, since I'm busy with writing, but I still post work here whenever I can.
