How do people on social media do these self-introduction thingies?

English Teacher / Aspiring Witch / Bread and Potato Enthusiast (Did I do it right?)

I have an unhealthy addiction to Dota 2. My dignity hangs upside down, on a broomstick, in the Harry Potter studio, and there is no better place for it. I adore reading almost as much as writing. Give me soppy romance stories, creepy mysteries or mindblowing new worlds full of witches, elves, and demons, and I'll devour it!

I am Russian. Got the speaking down, but unfortunately, I'm sure a couple of first graders could thoroughly destroy me in reading and writing. I lived in South Africa for 20 years and now I live in the UK. I have a BA in Creative Writing and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education.

I started with poetry. The lame , "You broke my heart, you bastard" kind you come up with at 12. Now, I write Fantasy! Dragons, witches, shamans, shapeshifters and whoever else decides to wander into my world(s).

Thanks for visiting my page!
