I'm a Fantasy Author based out of NYC. My books (The WINDFIRE Series) all center around the Goth/Industrial scenes of NYC and Boston. Last October my first book came out. Then, as of THIS October, I re-released the book(s) on my own with a new editor, new covers, and converted them to YA. I revealed them all at New York Comic Con and we sold over 130 (counting both hard copy and online sales)...which, for an indie author at a convention, is twice the normal you expect to sell. So I was more than thrilled. :) If you are into Urban Fantasy, hop on over to my website, click on the cover of book one (you can't miss it, it's the biggest pic on the cover page) and it'll take you to a page that shows you all four books and what they are about. Links are below each so you can get them in PRINT or E-COPY. My website is: www.tamsinsilver.com Anyhoo...about me... I have a BA in Theatre and English, have taught both middle school and high school, have directed many shows here in NYC (still do from time to time), ran a theatre company here in the city for 5 years, I've been writing stories since I was 17 (yee gads!), and love to use Twitter when I have the time. SO...come find me at there at tamsinsilver and of course I'm on Facebook like every other person on the planet. :)
Do I list writing or is that a given? :) Dancing, Reading (addicted to my Kindle), Music (like most New Yorkers I go nowhere w/o my iPod), BIG dogs (I have one. Yes, even in a compact city), NYC Parks, Wine Bars (especially a good glass of Meade), Swimming, Biking, going to the movies, and of course seeing good Theatre!
Alas...most of my dislikes revolve around things I suck at...like science, math, running, stairs, and outdoor sports. Ha! But I do like to go WATCH a game (in person) so...huh. Anyhoo...I also am not a fan of rude behavior (Don't Be A Dick),tiny screaming children (yay for my iPod), experimental theatre (*shudders*) or snow after Christmas.
