Hey, friends! 

So, who is Larina?

I am an INFP, country-girl-turned-city-girl (currently living in a small "city"), a Mennonite, Canadian, and a newly graduated Registered Nurse. Underneath these labels and stereotypes, I am Larina. I think too much and I talk too little and I write because it helps me make sense of the world.

I think my stories reveal more about myself than my biography, or at least I hope they do. Check out the Magic Princess Story if you want something cute and finished. Another complete work is Meaning of Life. As to which project I am currently focused on - that depends on which of my works I currently have any faith in, and that changes daily.

I am a lazy perfectionist and a professional procrastinator, and I enjoy fantasy, science fiction, self-help, and basically any book or movie that makes you think.

My favourite author is still Tamora Pierce, because her characters are so strong and noble. I just finished reading Life of Pi and the first of the Game of Thrones series. I watch a lot of TV and movies right now because I got into the habit during school, but I mean to start reading more again, and not just the bestsellers. I also really loved The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, and anything by C.S. Lewis. 

I haven't been writing for a while because I was in school, and after that it was because I couldn't use my laptop for more than 10 minutes without it burning a whole through my jeans. Now that I have recently bought a new macbook, I have one less excuse not to write. I am confident another excuse will come along and take its place, but for now I will enjoy the fresh sense of direction and motivation.

Even though I am an introvert, I love meeting new people on this site, so don't hesitate to say 'hello' or comment on my work. Constructive feedback is welcome too.

So if you're new, welcome here, and for all of you long-term protagonizers, we salute you :) We all have something in common: we LOVE fiction. I look forward to reading and writing together with you!
