I'm seventeen right now, but I like to think I seem older.
I'm bisexual; currently I'm in an open relationship with a boy, and a casual relationship with a girl.
I live with my dad, my step-mom and two brothers; and sometimes I live with my mom. I also have two more brothers, on my mom's side; and two sisters, of my dad's, who I don't live with.
Just a few months ago I found out that I'm Aboriginal. I was always interested in the culture, but finding out that it's my own culture has really spurred me to learn more about it. Now I smudge every morning before work :)

I've been reading since I was a tot, and writing since I was five (I still have a few messy, nonsensical stories from that stage of my life!) I think that visual art and language are all really interrelated.
In the ninth grade I realized how interested I am in spirituality, philosophy and psychology; and I realized that my one major reason for living is to find truth and love.
Soon after that, I discovered a passion for cooking; my dad loves to cook, and I took a couple professional cooking courses in high school.
I've always loved pets (and wild animals, too!)

When I was very, very young, I dreamed that my mother and I were overseas feeding many children. Since then, this has been my dream. My goal in life is to make as many people as possible happy.

Poetry was my thing, since I was about eight. I also loved to write clichéd romance stories, but I've branched out a lot in the past couple years.
I just started a children's book. The kids have to do word puzzles to figure out what the story is, which I thought might be kind of neat for them. It should be released in August 2009.
I've been writing my autobiography, Shattered, for about three years now; so once the children's book is out, I must make it a full-time project to finish that. My goal publishing date for Shattered is summer 2010.
After that, there are a lot of ideas rolling around in my head but we'll have to see!

When I was thirteen, I got a short poetry anthology published. It is not available in book stores; you can order a copy from me directly. knightofdarkness_maidenoflight@hotmail.com
Books are $5.99CDN, plus shipping.

I have my first position ever! I am working for the summer as the receptionist at BANAC; it's the Anishnaabe equivalent to United Way.
In October I'm starting a culinary arts course at Liaison College; yay!

Ultimately, I want to open my own restaurant; adopt at least one child from each continent; do as much activist work as possible; and write a kazillion books in the process! We'll see how that goes!

Well, that's about all I can think to say about myself off the bat...
Feel free to contact me through email if you have any inquiries about my books, or anything else!
