Other than the generic "Hi, I'm Kera. I'm 24 years of age, living in Leeds, and I am a budding author." I have no idea what to say.
I'll start off by actually telling what I write. That's always the best place to start. I write literally anything at the moment. I have dabbled in fanfiction, poetry, thought provoking drabbles, silly flashfics, writing from word prompts and a 34k word novel that is on the back burner right now. Not bad for 10-12 years of "part time" writing between schools, choirs, friends and family. Or more recently my parter and my two young kids.
In my little archive of characters, I have around 40 well thought out, different characters, ranging from adults in their 30's/40's all the way down to teenagers, a few shape-shifters thrown in there for a shake up, but mainly all human. I have 8 characters that have stuck with me since I started out writing, so they have grown with me. I have never been capable of making Mary-Sues/Marty-Stus, all of my characters have always had flaws, be they physical or mental, or even in their personality.
I have also never been one for the cleches you can find in some fiction, namely the stick thin, big chest, blonde with blue eyes, multi-talented in many instruments girls, or the jocks. I like (or prefer) the more natural "average Joe" type of person, or even "bigger bodied" people. They can be fun to write too.
My writing playlist is whatever is my favourite music is at the time. I have a rather dynamic music taste, but seem to listen to the same 27 tracks over and over.
I have once made someone so scared with a piece of writing that I still feel guilty even now. I have also brought a few to tears, sometimes from sadness, but mostly from laughter.
Genres that I write? I can vary from Young Adult fiction, to Erotica. But don't really write Adventure, Horror, Sci-fi or Fantasy
I am not keen on all the vampire fiction that is around at the moment, and try steer away from it. (Stephanie Mayer, I'm looking at you for that dislike)
I have also been asked about how I came up with Kerantli as a screen name, and it's simple. I was called a Dreamer, and looking through random sites, I came across a couple of words that really stuck with me, Minea Kerantli. Loosely translated, it ended up being Mini Dreamer. Now, I was a Mini Dreamer when younger, now I'm a 5ft 7 whirlwind of a woman, I'm not really Mini any more but it stuck.
