I BECAME INSANE, WITH LONG INTERVALS OF HORRIBLE SANITY. --EDGAR ALAN POE
Hi! I'm N W Raven (short for Necolyne Willow, if you're wondering).
I'm an aspiring psychological suspense novelist. I passionately research my subjects and interact with my characters on a regular basis. I dabble a bit in steampunk and science fiction, too, but I've never gotten very far. Suspense and thriller novels seem to be my element. And depressing short stories. I'm also now trying my hand at romances, satires, and parodies -- three of my worst genres. I sincerely hope they don't suck. Fingers crossed!
You may find me to be quite strange, old-fashioned, and perhaps a bit creepy at times. No need to fear me, though. I'm only the psycho your parents warned you about.
Oh yeah. By the way, turn around. Yeah. I'm that shadow behind you. Hi.
DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee,
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie.
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell,
And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
And better then thy stroake; why swell'st thou then;
One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.
"Death Be Not Proud"
