M. K. Theodoratus has been intrigued by fantasy since she discovered the Oz books. She has traveled through many fantasy worlds since then. When she's not reading about other writer's worlds, she's creating her own -- mostly that of the Far Isle Half-Elven where she explores the social and political influences of population genetics in a hybrid elf/human poplustion.

A sixth grade English assignment introduced her to story writing. The teacher asked for a short story. She got an incomplete, 25-page Nancy Drew pastiche which turned into a novel the next summer. Theodoratus has been addicted to writing stories ever after.

I read them as I stumble over them or find them in one of my to read piles. Currently, reading Aaron Elkins Switcheroo. Almost done.

Next? I'm thinking I want to binge on an old favorite. Last time I did this was rereading Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson books in order. Am thinking of rereading the Midnight Crossings books of Charlaine Harris before the TV production, but don't know if that's a good idea.

Decisions. Decisions.

Think plots are too complicated a concept for the unanswered questions in my life.

But, character development is another question. I've always been curious about why people act the way the do, even before I started writing. (less)

M.K. Theodoratus Help: primary teachers, children's librarians, ESL teachers

Don't know where to post this, but will do it blindly a couple places.

Once when a friend of mine and I had dyslexic kids having problems with vowels, we did some comic book formated short vowel controlled readers. I'd like to know if anyone has an opinion on whether the idea is relavent. Please private message me.

[The now adult kids still remember the characters, and wonder if I'm going to make them availale again.]

M.K. Theodoratus A Free Offer -- No strings

Am thinking this goes to my GoodReads friends. Anyway if you'd like a free [no cover] ebook of my new release -- There Be Demons -- send me your email.

Blurb-- After demons overrun the city, Gillen, the leader of the Gargoyle Guardians, asks his commanders for reinforcements. They send four untrained teens from the projects. Not only does Britt Kelly discover that she must cope with a new high school, but demons truly exist. Will Britt learn to play by the rule book or will she doom to Gargoyles’ mission to failure?

Of course a want-to-read or review would be nice, but not necessary.


message 2: by M.K.

M.K. Theodoratus The long slog is over. There Be Demons is up as am ebook and the POD is soon to follow. Now I can get back to writing--if I ever get out from under the promo.

Demons have overrun the city. When Gillen, the leader of the four Gargoyle Guardians, asks for reinforcements, his commanders sent four untrained teens led by Britt Kelly. Britt not only has to cope with a new school in the projects and a boyfriend, but learns that demons threaten everything she thinks important. You can check it out at http://ow.ly/ooOF30fmm1r

M.K. Theodoratus Wonder what will happen if I post something. ???

#amwriting or editing to be precise. Actually going to publish a novel -- There Be Demons -- if the puzzle pieces fall into place.
