First of all, I humbly thank you for visiting my page
Me:I'm a woman with medium-length brown hair. I usually wear it pulled back held with a heavy-duty clip. I have a small nose with a bump in it. (I can flare my nostrils) I wear glasses (gold-colored). I have brown eyes that have green and grey in them. I have high cheek-bones, and some people think that I'm Native American, but I'm not. My teeth are small, white and even. My ear-lobes are detached. I have a mole in the middle of my neck. I have a stocky build and my height is a little above average, if average is 5' 4". My eyes slant slightly up at the corners, and I don't look bad when I wear makeup and do my hair like I care about hair parts naturally off-centre and my face is round. When I smile, my mouth turns down (I don't know why).
Fav book: The Black Arrow by Robert Louis Stevenson
Fav authors: Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert E. Howard

If you read any of my stories, you probably think that I'm really perverted. OK I admit it, but at least its in good taste.
By the way, if you have recieved a critical review from me, just remember, I am not trying to offend you, I am merely helping you to grow. I expect the same in return.
I read almost exclusively in the "Fiction" "Fantasy" "M" section, and I get my nose out of joint if I see "Horror" elements therein. I don't know why, but I do. I guess I got vampired and werewolfed-out two decades ago. (or maybe three already, yikes! I'm not that old, really!)
Also, I hate cliche stuff. You know, stuff you have read over and over again until you get tired of it. Like girls being afraid of thunder, spiders and mice. GET OVER IT ALREADY! (Yeah, I've read A LOT of stories) Please don't take this opinion seriously if you've written these things I've mentioned, because when I was starting out, I used them. (They were new to me then.) I used them a lot. There's a certain appeal to a helpless, scared girl who has an irrational fear that men just want to soothe and solve.
My non-fiction stuff is, for the most part, researched. If you have any arguement about it, I'm not the only one who has said it, so I shrug if you disagree with me. You're disagreeing with about ten thousand other people. Maybe five million people. (Don't know, but it's a lot.)
One thing I would like to say to anyone I've reviewed and haven't gotten back to: there are SO many yummy stories here, and SO many talented writers and SO many hopeful writers that can be so much better with a little nudge of encouragement and SO many people that think they are authors but have obviously gotten in over their heads...please be patient with me. On occasion I go back over my review history and pick up where I left off. Also, I will read stories and not review every single chapter.(Basically because of time constraints, I do have a full time job and four children at home) (Yikes! I'm not THAT old, am I?) Occasionally, I get dirty looks from my spouse when I've been on too long, so I have to cut things short.
Philosophy: (of the moment): it is my opinion that reviewing and posting should be dealt out in equal portions. (Us writers must come out of our shells and pat each other on the back occasionally. After all, how many non-writers visit this site? I wonder...)
Ciao, and happy writing. Remember, for every review, there is at least 130 hits.
