****ATTENTION TO THOSE WHO HAVE COME HERE FROM AKHKHARU.NET****
I have not been able to access the Akhkharu.net website or email address for quite a long time now. My ISP has been investigating into the "hijacking" and assure me that I will have access again soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Well, a little about me, I'm a writer and am about to release the second book in my Akhkharu trilogy. The first book is called Akhkharu: House of the Vampire, the second book is Akhkharu: Apocalypse. I have already begun work on the third and final book, Akhkharu: Inception.
I love to write, I write many different things, from flyers to procedural manuals, but what I love to write the most is fictional vampire tales. I enjoy creating something that is completely my own, but basing it enough in fact to keep it tangible. To ensure the timeline and the geographical references were in order many hours of research had to be done for Akhkharu and it has been absolutely fascinating! I have thoroughly enjoyed all of it, writing the Akhkharu books has given me a glimpse into the true ancient past that I had only thought I had known.
Although work on Inception has just begun, I am already throwing around the idea of writing an anthology, focusing on Sarrum and the beginning of it all. I would love to be able to focus the plot around the ancient near east aspects of my story, and this would be the perfect showcase for it.
If you'd like to see more, check out the official website Akhkharu.net or check out my Journal, I moved the preview back there.
Born on the Pisces-Aries cusp, you can see the dillema of my life, I am ruled by both Water and Fire, and I am the end and the beginning of the zodiac. I am also a mother my son is 13 years old, and it is true what they say, being a grandparent is the best revenge. (Sorry again mom!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol)
At five foot-nine, blonde hair and blue eyes I would not say that I am unattractive, but I am not some cute little thing either.
The animal I love most is no animal at all, my favorite of God's creatures is the shark. Sleek and deadly, the shark is the most mis-understood creature on the planet. They have ruled the seas for millions of years, and I only pray they will continue to do so for millenias past man's exsistance. Frankly, I care more about shark-friendly tuna than I do dolphin friendly. I even run a website dedicated to this magnificant creature, and have done so for eight years now.
Honesty is one of the most important things to me. Without my integrity I am nothing. So needless to say you may call me many things, but a liar must never be one. I also have an extremely low tolerance for liars.
In my life I lived lived through a tremendous amount of tragedy and adversity, I don't want to go into great detail, I'm not looking for pity.
What I do want to say though is that I am a better, stronger person for it. In the face of death, sorrow, shock, life-change, utter unfairness you must stand strong, take what you are given and cope with the reality of the situation. It's not always easy, but you will get through.
I personally live by several "mottos" "creedos" etc (whatever you want to call them):
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
God doesn't put on your plate more than you can handle
Life moves on
There is a reason for everything, we just may not know what it is
What comes around goes around
Your word is your bond
Pretty simple and straight forward, but it makes for a good life, and keeping that attitude helps me push on no matter what.
I also strongly believe that children are the greatest gift, and should be treated as such.
You don't want to know what I think about child-abusers.....
I can enjoy almost any type of music, but I love the hard, aggressive sound of extremely heavy metal. The sound of the crunching guitars and the pounding drums gives me an outlet for my agression that I can't resist. My favorite band is Slayer, I love seeing them live. Another of my favorite bands is Overkill--love these guys! I've been fortunate enough to see them nearly two dozen times the last 17 years. They KICK @SS live, the energy and the sound are masterful. Here's a list of bands I enjoy listening to (in no particular order):
Sepultura (OLD SCHOOL W/Max!!!!!!)
I love the guitar, that sound that comes from it, so I also really enjoy these rock bands. They are all guitar oriented and their songs have a unique sound that I love to listen to.
O-L-D Van Halen
O-L-D Motley Crue
Now, ask me about my favorite songs. This is another matter entirely ;-p
My favorite songs:
Black Water (Doobie Brothers)
War Ensamble (Slayer)
Reign In Blood (Slayer)
Maggie May (Rod Stweart)
Bad Moon Rising (CCR)
Sweat Leaf (Black Sabbath)
(More to come...I'm tired of typing for the moment)
Have you ever noticed how infectious a smile can be? Such a small jesture can spread like wildfire and sometimes all someone needs is a smile to turn their "moment" around. My husband and I drive across the country once a year, and most places I go when I smile at someone, they smile back, then they smile at the next person. See, wildfire. Next time you catch someone looking at you, flash them your pearly whites!
Why do people who hate people choose customer service for a living? I mean seriously, if you're not a people person you shouldn't choose a job where you have to deal with the public (and we have to deal with that person).
Ah, well I was prepared to write today about the over usage of mis-spelling, but I received an email from a younger girl and I was impressed. No letter/number combo's, no abbreviations, no z's for s's. It was simple but eloquent...especially for her age. It seems alot of people like to "net-speak", the ppl, the pleez, the h8ers, etc etc and it can really irritate me after awhile (believe you me) the occasional use of "net slang" is cool, we all do it to some degree, but when every single word is mis-spelled...ugh. It was so refreshing to get an email that the writer took the time and effort to punctuate her sentences, spell out all her words with letters (and the proper letters at that!) and that she spoke in complete thoughts and sentences. Such a little jesture but it was greatly appreciated! And it was enough to stop my pet peeve rant in it's tracks.
Now don't get me wrong, I myself am famous for the "adn" "teh" "wehn" etc, sometimes my brain moves faster than my poor little fingers can keep up with, and I am by no means talking about those simple, "innocent" kind of typos. I am irritated by the lack of what I consider basic communication skills by those who do not write in complete thoughts/sentences and leave you guessing what was just said. Or when every single word is wrong it makes them look like they're just too lazy to articulate in writing the complete word by using the correct letters. The occasional "E Z" "sk8r" "LOL"etc isn't even so bad, but when the entire body (and I mean every word) of the message is complied with psuedo-words like these, it gets frustrating to read and hard to follow just what that person is trying to say.
*Wow, I wrote that before texting took off LOL! Yeah...I still hate it and no I don't text now. People stopped texting me when they received complete sentences back LMFAO!
QBQ-anyone heard of it? It's the question behind the question. Wonderful book about personal accountability, something society seems to be severly lacking in. We have become a country of victims:
Why did this happen?
Who's fault is it?
When will they fix it?
What about asking:
What can I do about it?
How can I change it?
I guess I am just sick of 'victims', the constant poor-me-so-pity-me. When life gets hard and the shit hits the fan I'd like to scream SUCK IT UP AND DEAL WITH IT. And I don't mean that ignorantly, but people need to snap out of the "wah-wah" faze (each and every single one of us go through this faze-some just don't seen to snap out of it) soon after the initial 'event' and move on. Make the best of the sitation and learn whatever needs to be learned from it so you can make it better or move on, instead of wallowing or waiting for someone else to make it better.
Is seems as though common courtesy has all but disappeared in today's busy world. People seem all too self involved to be bothered by the exsitence of another. How many times have you seen someone cut off another on the road, or not let another car from a parking lot into a long line of traffic at a light? What about that person walking out a door in front of you who lets it swing back on you? How many times has someone dropped their belongings, and no one stops to help, even on a windy day.
It's not my problem.
That seems to be the mantra of many now adays, and it's sad. Manners should be just as important today as they have been in the past. So make someone else's day (and for many of us totally trip them out in the process) and do something nice for someone else, something completely random.

Mysterious and a scholar, you are a member of the Tremere clan. You are pretty loyal to your clan, well, you sort of have to...especially since you are blood-bonded to most of them. You are the intelligentsia of the Camarilla and are fascinated with the occult. Possessing the ability to use blood for magic, many clans don't like to approach you. However, that is fine with you. You tend not to trust the other clans anyway.
What Vampire Clan Do You Belong To?
What Kind Of Vampire Would You Be. (New And Improved, With COOL Pics!!!) FOR GIRLS ONLY!!!!
Well well well, the old fashioned 17th century vampire, one of my faves. You look for the good things in life, you posses a lot of classical class, and follow that of the original vampires, you have no shame in what you are, infact you embrace it, you love it and wouldn't have it any other way. Your wealth is unspeakable and your way of luring people with your mystical ways and looks is amazing, and most people would often call you The Seductress. Please rate this quiz!Take this quiz
