Introducing Annie

Hey everyone!  My name is Annie.  If I'm going to be a regular blogger around here, I probably should introduce myself. 
I've been writing poems and stories all my life.  I can't remember a time where I didn't enjoy simply putting words on paper.  I wrote my first novella when I was twelve, a contemporary horse story titled Circle of Forever.  I soon followed with its sequel, Summer Smoke.  Since then I've written my first full-length novel, tentatively titled Secrets of the Legend Chaser.  It's a high fantasy story about a runaway, a street thief, a peasant girl, and lots and lots of dragons, because I love dragons! 

I have had an article published in my local newspaper, and I had a poem published in Teen Ink magazine, but other than that I've never published a book.  I hope to someday, though! 

When not writing, I read.  A lot.  My favorites include Eragon, the Pendragon series, Artemis Fowl, The Thief Lord, The Scorpio Races, Eon and Eona, The Book Thief, the Gone series, and way too many more to name here.  I also spend a huge amount of time listening to my iPod and practicing either flute, piano, or piccolo. 

On those rare occasions that I'm not doing any of the above, I'm probably doing homework.  Or riding horses.  Or lurking around the Inkpop forums.  Or blogging.  Speaking of blogging, I also blog at The Epic, The Awesome, and The Random, yet another writing blog. 
But, enough about me already.  I look forward to watching this blog grow to infinity and beyond!


  1. Yay! The Summer Smoke is a cool title!
    And I loved The Artemis Fowl series, Eon and Eona, The Bookf Thief, and the Gone series are all some of my favorite books! :D

    And I'm jealous, I've always wanted to ride a horse. Well I rode one once, but that was it. :(

  2. Thanks! LOL I was rather proud of that title, too, when I first came up with it. Just because it was both literal (a fire was in the story) and metaphorical (a lot of tension hung in the air...). I was so proud of both those stories, and now I just can't help but cringe when I look at them. At least they show I've made some progress....

    Those books are ALL amazing. Especially Artemis Fowl. Words cannot describe how much I love that series. Can't wait for the next one!
