Since I was in middle school, I've been chasing characters through the pages of their own books.  I plotted with Artemis Fowl. I read with Elizabeth Bennett. I was a part of Roland Deschain's Ka-tet. I rode dragons with Eragon. I walked through the night circus with Celia and Marco.  Reading is one of my passions and something that soothes my soul.  I've also been writing and telling tall tales since I was nine years old. I believe that story weaving is a bit of magic in a mundane world. You have a story in you, you need only to let the magic speak.
