I grew up in the Bay Area of California, and have since, lived in many places in the United States, including the Mid-Atlantic, South and Northeast California and California's Central Valley.
After high school I became more interested in writing, and researched how to write screenplays. I've been writing screenplays for over ten years.
About 5 years or so ago, I discovered Gimp, and through tutorials and trial and error, taught myself most of the tools of Gimp.
Also after high school, I became more interested in Fantasy and Science Fiction shows and stories. I got an idea about a story set in a "fictional" land or realm world and have been working on it off and on for a couple of years and have recently got a bit more serious about actually writing it and making it my profession.
I say fictional because of the dreams or visions I have look and feel so real, and according to a friend of mine who does akashic record readings, I'm writing what I know. Hopefully I wasn't the villain in that world, if I was, I apologize. Okay, more on this later.
With Creating a new world, maps are something that I feel help the reader, and myself being an avid map fanatic of fantasy worlds an stories, I've got to create a map myself for my story.
Those may remember a year or two ago, I posted a map and the world called Cranthem Kingdom and asked for a commission. Thankfully no one took me up on the offer, as the story and map has changed. Some of the names are still the same, but quite a bit is different. Also additional years of Gimp have helped me feel I can create at least something that resembles a map.
That's enough "details" about me now. If you have any questions, just ask.
