AmaranthMuse has many roles, some of them her own. A sorceress of creative descriptions and elusive language, she spins visions in text on a daily basis. She nurtures a wealth of obscure knowledge in esoteric fields ranging from wine to ancient Briton customs and Victorian exploration. Her longstanding love for history doesn't get to express itself often except in written form or conversations that sprawl from the fall of Rome to how sushi is delicious. She adores traveling, wine or tea, and discovering new fragments of information.
When not engaged in expanding or revising her novels and short stories, unacceptable technical documents and proposals suffer her grammar hexes. Her novels often involve a strong undercurrent of mythology and folklore, rich settings, and the supernatural or historical elements. Doctor Who is her secret relief from the madness of NaNo, as well as looking at fancy dresses and boots, and disappearing inside of Torino Espresso Bar (while lamenting its closed hours).
She is the high priestess to three feline divinities, and devoted exercise companion to a canine supermodel. That loud noise typing at insane speeds heard in November? That would be her.
