NAME: Jessica "Jaelle" Ihimaera-Smiler


WRITER OF: Writers Block Woman; Mouse Tales

PERSONAL INFO: Currently being tortured to death by History Honours, I have a BA inEnglish Lit and History. Like to write (when I have the time). Double. Collect lots of comics ranging from the fangirlish (X-Men, Gen 13) to the cute (Bone) to the sublime (Books of Magic, Strangers in Paradise). I am a total Rogue and Magneto fangirl so don't get me started (they're finally getting together! Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes). Ahem. I also love manga and anime (when I can get hold of any) especially Ranma 1/2, Maison Ikkoku, Dominion, You're Under Arrest, and Oh My Goddess. My favorite authors are Andre Norton, Diana Wynne Jones, Terry Pratchett, H. Beam Piper, and Glen Cook. I am a chocoholic. My musical taste is eclectic at best and confusing the rest of the time.

WHAT I WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW ABOUT ME: I live in New Zealand - see the Internet is worldwide.

WHAT I DON'T WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW ABOUT ME: I love cartoons. Not anime (tho I love that too and some of my fave cartoons subsequently turned out to be anime). Cartoons. Biker Mice From Mars, Gargoyles, The Tick, Sabre Rider and the Star Sherriffs, Where Is Carmen Sandiego?, Galaxy Rangers, Defenders of the Earth, Thundercats, Scooby Doo, Godzilla and Godzookie, Jamie and the Magic Torch, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids, Dungeons and Dragons, Transformers, Pole Position, Jem and the Holograms, and lots of others even I'm not willing to admit that I watched. Bring em on, I'll watch em (although every now and then I encounter something so bad even I can't stand it).
