I wrote my first story in first grade. The narrator was an ice-cream cone in the process of being eaten. In fourth grade, I wrote my first book, about a girl who gets shipwrecked on a desert island with her faithful and heroic dog (a rip-off of both The Black Stallion and all the Lassie movies, very impressive).

However, I took a few detours along the way to becoming a full-time writer.

“I don't want you to be the shifter." Rokan's voice was quiet, and her human sense of smell told her nothing about how he felt. "I haven't wanted that for a long time. Since before I knew it was possible for you to not be the shifter." A pause then - so quietly that even she could barely hear him, "Since before I knew I loved you.”

Leah Hi Charles,
I like YA and adult fantasy -- Megan Whalen Turner, Diana Wynne Jones, Dave Duncan, Juliet Marillier...
Am having some problems with goodreads at the moment (related to them sending out mass invitations on my behalf!) so may not be on for a little while.
Leah
