I am a fiction writer, mainly in the fantasy genera. I say mainly because I've only been writing for a year, and the project I've been working on is in a fantasy setting. I've written some poems, but not many.
Anyway, I also make a hobby out of metalwork, mainly traditional blacksmithing and the art of bladesmithing. I make knifes ;)
Favorite authors would have to be, in order, J.R.R Tolkien, Lloyd Alexander, Brian Jacques, Christopher Paloini and C.S. Lewis.
