Who am I?


Catholic, bibliophile, Chestertonian.  Strong advocate of common sense, children, and good wine.

I love:  Catholicism, writing, reading, science-fiction, C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, J.R.R. Tolkien, coffee, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, mysteries, Agatha Christie, P.G. Wodehouse, medieval historical fiction, well-written fantasy (an endangered species), British literature, and I have a weakness for comic books/graphic novels.  

I dislike: most YA "literature", vampires that sparkle, werewolves that aren't named Remus Lupin, romances that start in the bedroom and end at the altar, human heroes without fault, slash, chick lit, regency novels that pretend to be Austen-esque, fantasy novels that require a four page long pronunciation guide (the obvious exception: Tolkien)

"The greater the cause for which a man lives, the greater the man."


"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."
— Dr. Seuss

"The pen is mightier than the sword, and considerably easier to write with."
