Nenia Campbell was born and raised in the United States. From infancy, she was fond of books- especially the cardboard ones; they were the most delicious. As she grew older, she learned that 'devouring a book' was a phrase not to be taken literally. As a result, she became a very enthusiastic reader. When she discovered that the stories she wanted to read did not exist she became an enthusiastic writer, as well.

She hopes that you have a lovely day.

As a kid, if I hated a book, I would rewrite the ending or offending scene to my liking. (I am such a dork, I know.) Then I realized that I could write original books of my own. Mind = blown!

Toni Morison has a great quote that explains on this:

'If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.'(less)

“Happiness is such a fragile thing, isn't it? So easily burst, like a bubble blown by a child, and always on the verge of being carried away.”
Nenia Campbell, Endgame

I know what it is to want something that could destroy you.
Nenia Campbell, Endgame

“Once upon a time, there was a naïve and innocent girl who thought she could tame the beast and live happily ever after. But the beast did not want to be tamed, for he was a beast and beasts care not for such things, and the girl died along with her dreams.

From childhood's grave sprang a young woman, jaded before her years, who knew that beasts could wear the skins of men, and that evil could exist in sunlight, as well as darkness.

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.”
Nenia Campbell, Terrorscape

“Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.”
Garrison Keillor

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

“Your name is a golden bell hung in my heart. I would break my body to pieces to call you once by your name.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

“Oh well... I'd just been thinking, if you had died, you'd have been welcome to share my toilet.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“It starts so young, and I'm angry about that. The garbage we're taught. About love, about what's "romantic." Look at so many of the so-called romantic figures in books and movies. Do we ever stop and think how many of them would cause serious and drastic unhappiness after The End? Why are sick and dangerous personality types so often shown a passionate and tragic and something to be longed for when those are the very ones you should run for your life from? Think about it. Heathcliff. Romeo. Don Juan. Jay Gatsby. Rochester. Mr. Darcy. From the rigid control freak in The Sound of Music to all the bad boys some woman goes running to the airport to catch in the last minute of every romantic comedy. She should let him leave. Your time is so valuable, and look at these guys--depressive and moody and violent and immature and self-centered. And what about the big daddy of them all, Prince Charming? What was his secret life? We dont know anything about him, other then he looks good and comes to the rescue.”
Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming

Ash *Shipper of Many Ships* So I was on Tumblr like the night owl I am and I saw this quote that I know you'll love and added it to the database. I especially agree with # 10. Even real boyfriends never compare to a cowboy or inviting man ;) <3.

Ash *Shipper of Many Ships* Oh you! Stahp. Lol. I really enjoy talking to you too.

Do you like tea? I usually don't but a woman was handing out samples at the mall and the tea was quite good.

I'm looking fwd to more of your Greek references if you do approach on the subject! :)

Def looking fwd to more discussions with you! :D Have a great weekend ahead!

I'll do my best to fit the books written by you that I already added to my TBR to be read really soon.

Marte is also on Leafmarks Thanks for friend-vite, Nenia! It's a pleasure meeting you!

I really can't seem to keep my mouth shut when it comes to stuff like what happened. I hate injustice and unfairness, on both/every side(s). So thanks for noticing. :)

Oh, fair warning though, I read MM and love half naked/naked men, so lots of posting of pics and gifs of those. And I may swear, but not when I'm being strict and telling people off. And I also "LOL" a lot, but I mean it. ;)

Kaora That we do! Thanks for the add. I'm interested in checking out your books as well!

Aisyah  (*≧▽≦)・゚✧ Hola!~
