I was born in Sweden and visited several European countries before returning to Seattle. When I was 8, my family moved onto a sailboat for the start of a 4-year adventure that would land us in Virginia.
When I'm not writing, I enjoy Irish dancing, reading, drawing, photography, craft projects, upcycling, training my cat, being homeschooled, going to CTY, being awesome, etc etc etc
I did NaNo in '09 with the username Seina Karelli, and failed (20k). With 109 pages I won Script Frenzy 2010 :D This year I am determined to actually get my 50,000 words, although whether that actually happens remains to be seen.
And I'll give you a cookie if you get the reference in my location :D
