I am a just joined member to this list. I tend to be sporadically vocal,
so I thought I'd better introduce myself now before I jump in on a thread
and forget to introduce myself.
First, a little about myself. I am a mid-twenties stay at home mom to a 3
year old daughter and 21 month old boy, living in Omaha, NE, USA. That
really sums up my life, but if you want to know more about me, visit
I also write reviews for epinions, on
occasion. I wrote some review's of Anne's books under the ID adrienne10.
I really enjoy Anne's work and I love that you are so involved with your
fans. I exchanged emails with you about a year ago and was impressed that
you took the time to respond. When I ventured a look at this list, I was
excited to see responses from Anne.
I came to Anne's work from being a Mercedes Lackey fan. Years ago I was a
member of one of her email discussion lists, I think one of the very first
ones. An offshoot of that list was formed for a story circle. Anyway, one
of the members from that list (Ange aka Shadowdancer, in case she's lurking
here) mentioned Anne in Dec 1999. I read the Blood Jewels and was
hooked. Anne quickly ascended to the top of my favorite authors list, and
would be my declared favorite if it didn't feel disloyal to replace my
favorite author of so long.
I finished reading _Shadows and Light_, which is why I was looking at
Anne's site, to find out about the next book in the trilogy. Perhaps the
best thing about Anne's writing is how the characters stay with you long
after you've finished the story.
Well, that's a long introduction. I'm looking forward to the discussion on
this list and hearing announcements from Anne.
