Bronze Phoenix


Hello, I set up this LiveJournal, so I thought I should try writing in it.

Except I can't think of anything to say.

I am 40+, and I've been a fan of science fiction and fantasy since before it became fashionable. I started reading fantasy with Andre Norton, Fritz Leiber, the Oz books. (There are a lot more than the Wizard of Oz!)

I also like mysteries -- I started with The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden "back in the day." (I started on Sherlock Holmes a little later, but not much.)

My favorite movies include, but are not limited to:
The Wizard of Oz
White Christmas
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
The Sting
Star Wars
Raiders of the Lost Arc
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Arc
Disney's Beauty and the Beast
Disney's Aladdin
Disney's Hercules
Disney's Mulan
Disney's Tarzan
Quest for Camelot
Anastasia (Fox's animated version)
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
The Mummy and the Mummy Returns
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Pirates of the Caribbean

Favorite writers include, but again, not limited to:

Well, that's all I can think of for now. More later. Possibly
