Profile Information

Hi, I'm Kathryn, and I've been reading and writing pretty much forever. I can't think of a time when I wasn't, though it earned much annoyance from my grandparents who thought it was a waste and my parents who rolled their eyes at my constant reading and taking notes on the world. Right now I'm in college studying music (oboe and flute being my main instruments) and want to eventually either teach or get a masters in psychology and...do something psych related because I find that fascinating.

The writer I most admire is J. Michael Straczynski, the writer of a tv show called Babylon 5. I am endlessly impressed by his writing and story, the sheer epic scope of it, the intricacies, the characters, the vast plot that takes five years to tell. To me, Babylon 5 is the epitome of what modern good writing, not just modern good sci-fi writing, should be. The writers I read the most of are Diana Wynne Jones, Peter Beagle, and Anne McCaffrey. I read so much it is hard just to pick out a few authors and a few books out of a long list of favorites.

I write because having a story in my head is as natural as breathing, and if there isn't any story, then I am certainly less than myself.
