Hello, everybody!   Welcome to my little corner of World Anvil and the World of Orosta. A little about me, I'm an INTJ female who falls more on the author side of things rather than D&D. That said, I have always wanted to play. Never had the good luck of finding a group to join.   My greatest love is dragons, which is why you'll find a lot of them in my upcoming novel. Second greatest love is vampires (no, not the sparkly kind), but funnily enough, you won't find any of them at all in my upcoming novel. I didn't mean to exclude them! Just sort of accidentally happened! Forgive me, Alucard! (although Trevor is probably happy)   If you haven't figured it out by now, I'm a massive geek when it comes to fantasy, sci-fi, the works. Blame/thank my geeky mom who started it all. I've been writing since I was four years old and have recently finished my first manuscript titled Remember Dragons Lie Volume I: The Stag. It is Part One of a four-part series. Remember Dragons Lie Volume II: The Unicorn is four chapters away from being complete as of right now. Remember Dragons Lie Volume III: The Wolf and Remember Dragons Lie Volume IV: The Dragon I hope to complete by the end of next year (2021) assuming all goes well. Then it's off to the editing and publishing races, so feel free to stay tuned and drop by to ask any questions you may have! I'm an open book until we start getting into spoiler territory. Then, alas, mum's the word . . . for now.   For a sneak peek at Part I, see here:

Remember Dragons Lie Volume I: The Stag [TEASER]

As for my World Anvil world, I do have one (and it's extensive), but it is currently set to private since the majority of it is a volcano of spoilers for the entire series. Currently I'm working on a scheme to make at least part of it public should people be interested. Otherwise, the entire world will be opened once the book is published, and I can root out that last spoiler.   So until then, have a sit, take a peek at my teaser, or just shoot me a comment to say hello. I don't bite . . . much. ;)
