"All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immoveable, those that are moveable, and those that move"

"Welcome to a world where the air I breathe is mine,
Nothing to overwhelm me and nothing to cloud my mind,
Be anyone, do anything I'd ever wanna try
Time doesn't exist here,
I will never die"
-Own Little World, Celldweller

Though I supposedly live in dreary little England, I spend far more time in my own head. And for that reason, I tend to write fantasy. I'm very much a dreamer with no real interest in the real world, who writes as a form of release. I wouldn't describe myself as perfectly sane and I live a normal life by force of will. The person you think I am? I'm probably not. I have no idea who I am anymore.

My name's not actually Jenova Amaranth, either.

Random factoids about me and my writing:

  • I've been doing creative writing since I learned the alphabet
  • I really appreciate constructive criticism
  • I love fantasy, magic, demons and pirates
  • I take NaNoWriMo more seriously than my degree
  • I've been known to mercilessly torment characters
  • If you ever want to find me, I'll be at the bar
  • My favourite character of all time is Vincent Valentine from Final Fantasy VII... so technically it's a video game, not a book, but it has so much storyline it should count.
  • I'm a hopeless romantic, and consequently, romance seems to worm its way into whatever novel I'm writing.
  • If you take the time to read my writing, I'll happily read yours.
  • I will be incredibly critical in my reviews. I believe it's the best way to help people improve.
  • I very, very rarely give 5-star ratings, and I'm not afraid to give low ratings where I think there are flaws. Don't take it to heart if I rate you lower than 4.

Favourite novels / series:

  • The Dragonlance Chronicles - Weis & Hickman
  • The Demonata - Darren Shan
  • The Power Of 5 - Anthony Horowitz
  • The Saga Of Darren Shan - Darren Shan
  • Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling
  • Howl's Moving Castle - Diana Wynne Jones
  • The Stuff Of Nightmares - Malorie Blackman
  • Bartimaeus - Jonathan Stroud

I don't bite. Say hi! :)

Curious Creature-
a fantasy tale following a runaway elvin prince and a faerie assassin as they flee their governments, searching for solace. Alas, secrets kept have a habit of worming their way to the surface and causing all kinds of complications. Watch this space.
