My name is Helen Faunway, but you can just call me Henna. I'm a 23-year-old student majoring in English Literature and minoring in psychology. Some of you may now me as HennaFaunway from DA , or Motherhenna from tumblr: but however you found me, please know I appreciate your comments, votes and follows.  I've been posting my writing on here for years now, and even though I'm not as active as I used to be, I assure you that every bit of encouragement you guys give me on my work brightens my day. 

Unfortunately, the recent intensification of my ADD as well as the craziness of college life makes it difficult for me to update regularly--it's also made it nearly impossible to carry on writing more than one major project at a time. I'm really sorry if this means that a personal favorite of yours has been set on the backburner or abandoned: if I had the brainpower and inspiration to finish them just for your sake, I really would. But if you like my writing that much, you'll probably be able find more of it on my tumblr.

By the way, since so many of you loved the original draft of Paper Stars, it would mean the world to me if you could check out its newest iteration, Vergessenheit. It has the same premise and main characters, but many aspects have been improved, altered and adjusted. I'm less than one hundred pages in so far, and every bit of feedback helps!
