Pitch Wars Bio 2017

Hello, possible mentors!

Hello

 

I’m ready for my third year of Pitch Wars with my army of CPs by my side. 😀 Bring it on!

And I’ve got more gifs this year!

So what is my story about and why should you read it?

  • Antiheroes! Because bad boys are more fun. Eat your heart out, Zuko. tumblr_mk4xuuykxn1s5qslao1_400

 

  • Who doesn’t love a good bromance? 

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are best friend goals. 

  • Badass and powerful women! If you’re looking for a damsel in distress, that frilly princess is in another castle.

  • Knights being awesome!

  • It’s got enemies to lovers!

Samurai Jack & Ashi are such a badass couple!

 

  • And magic, because magic is fun!

 

And totally without terrible consequences, right?

 

Here’s a little bit more about my #ownvoices YA fantasy:

Half-Spanish Prince Vael meets his long-lost brother, Mordred, for the first time, only to discover that they’re destined to become enemies. If Vael cannot save Mordred from his curse, he will be forced to watch Camelot and his father fall or defend his home from the only friend he’s ever had—his brother.

Vael & Mordred – Totally the Sam & Dean of the Medieval world.

Now why pick me? 

  • I want to be better, and I know you can make me better, so I’m ready to listen and take in your advice.
  • Very open to honest and even blunt critiques. I’m ready for anything.
  • Giving up is not even a possibility for me. I’ve been working on this story for over 15 years. Researching, drafting, revising, revising again, revising again, and again… I’m not going to ever throw that away. Not happening.
  • Did I mention that I want this more than anything? I’m not giving up on my dreams.

Dream big

 

Random facts about me: 

  • My bearded dragon (as seen at the top of the page) is named Toothless.

Because Toothless is awesome.

  • I cosplay a lot at anime conventions. My current favorite cosplay is my female Joker. Mainly because I am totally in character when I laugh all the time and play harmless tricks on people. Oh, and I love doing makeup. It’s tedious, but totally worth it.

My next cosplay will be Stormy Weather from Miraculous Ladybug! 😀

What can I say? I love playing villains. Don’t judge me ’cause I’m Slytherin.

  • When I’m not writing, you’ll find me in Sephora, playing with different makeup.

How I think I look:

How I probably look:

 

  • I wish I could live in Disney World. I’m there almost 3 times every year, but it’s not enough. I’m constantly going through Disney withdrawal.

 

  • I read mainly Fantasy (Adult or YA, I’m not picky!). Some of my favorite novels include:
    • Daughter of the Forest (Sevenwaters series) by Juliet Marillier
    • Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
    • Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
    • I am Mordred by Nancy Springer
    • Jhereg (Vlad Taltos series) by Stephen Brust

 

Well, thanks for checking this out, and to all of my fellow writers, don’t ever quit!
