About the Author

Prereader of The Royal Guard (defunct).

I was born on June 12, 1987. I am currently attending Vancouver Island University as a Creative Writing major, a journey which began on September 10, 2012 with an introduction to writing fiction class.

I began writing seriously because the series we all know and love inspired me to do so in the summer of 2011, the Great Season One-to-Two Pony Drought. That was when I conceived a notion that turned into Repercussions and sent me on my way to writing fiction.

My comedic work is my most well received, though I do enjoy writing dark/epic stories a lot. Rainbow Dash is best pony, and Cutie Mark Chronicles is best episode.

It's no secret I've been silent for quite some time, as seems usual for me at this time of year (or most of the year, really). But I assure you, I'm not dead.

Excellent. Some things just stick with you. It's great hearing from you! I'm already looking forward to next Bronycon. :pinkiesmile:

Just so you know, I'm still saying, "Crack open a bear!" because of you.

No problem! I always (and only, actually) follow people I've met in person.
