What if everything you see is more than what you seeā€”the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things. (Shigeru Miyamoto)

D. M. Oswood has been an avid reader since sometime in elementary school and starting writing stories when she was ten years old. At the age of twelve, she decided that she was going to be a "world-famous author". The "world-famous author" hasn't come around yet, but she'll be happy just have to have publishing credits to her name some day and a loyal (if small) fan base--some day.

At present, she is a full-time college student looking towards a major in Creative Writing (failing that English Literature) and plans to continue to get her Masters in Creative Writing. She works part time and resides in Mesa, Arizona with two roommates and three cats. She is also on the Committee for KimeraCon and is looking forward to its first year in 2012 and watching it grow from there. In her spare time (if she ever has any) she loves hanging out (or going out) with friends, traveling (when finances allow), and taking pictures.

Currently obsessed with: Getting through this semester @.@

Latest news: Three Weeks 'til Spring Semester ends...bring on the summer. I intend to get a lot of writing done this summer if I can.

Who do you write about? A great majority of my main characters are feisty heroines who would much rather take care of themselves than have people take care of them. Most of my stories are aimed towards young adults, so the majority of the characters are in their early-20s (even though I've far passed that stage ^^;)

What do you write? I must admit I'm all over the board sometimes when I write. Mostly, however, it is science fiction and fantasy type stuff because that is what I grew up on and read voraciously when I was younger. Sadly, I don't read as much as I used to (I really should change that) because I'm too busy trying to get my stories out ^_^

When did you start writing? I started writing when I was ten years old. I decided I wanted to be an author when I was twelve. As for finishing and publishing something--I'm still working on that part ^_^

Where do you write? I will (and have) written almost everywhere ^_^

Why do you write? I write mostly because I just can't help it. I have been creating stories in my head for years and some of them demand to be written. I'd be lying if I said I didn't aim to be published someday--but even if I only ever received rejection notices in my mailbox when I sent stuff out I would still be writing.
