I originally took the name Black Swan because of a Mercedes Lackey novel that is loosely based on "Swan Lake." And, kudos to those of you who caught the the Marion Zimmer Bradley reference from my other name.
I write poetry. So far, I've had five officially published. Also, I hope to be a published novelist. To answer the question you're probably going to ask, I write fantasy, mainly. I've also been writing some plays/movies. I'm currently working on three stories,and about two movies, which means, when they're published(in the case of the movies, released), you can say you knew me before I was famous! lol.
I also play in role-playing games of the table-top variety. Yes, I am a nerd, and proud of it! I'm actaully working on a role-playing game based on slasher movies. Yes, I am also a horror movie finatic. Why, you ask? I dunno. I just like seeing what movies scare the crap out of me the most.
If you have any suggestions for any other symphonic metal/opera artists, let me know. I'm open to suggestion, which is why I began listening to Pandora.
As you can tell, though, I like many different types of music, so I'm open-minded where music's concerned. If you don't like my music choices, that's cool, but don't be a jerk about it.
