    Hello everyone, I am excited to join this Wheel of Time loving community. I have been reading this book series since the 1990's. I found the series on accident. I have always been an avid reader and as a child I would devour fiction, but I was NOT into fantasy or science fiction. Mother Nature changed that in the 90's. In 1996 there was a brutal ice storm. We had been given ample warning of the storm and so several families in my neighborhood gathered in one house with all of our pets. My friends house had several fireplaces and a generator. I brought three books with me, but with no power for over a week and nothing else to do I finished them quickly. I was desperate for something new to read and my friends brother gave me a copy of the Eye of the World. I don't think it took even 100 pages before I was completely hooked. That one book opened an entire world to me, and changed the course of my life as a reader and writer. Since then I have read the entire series over and over again, and devoured an endless list of fantasy novels. I think I am a more creative writer, artist, and educator because of Robert Jordan. My heart was broken when he passed, but I love that the universe he created lives on. I love RPing and discussing anything to do with this world. Thanks for having me.

    Welcome! :) That’s such a great story of how you came to love the books.

    If you could meet one character from the series, who would it be?

    My life has been super busy, but also really great. I am well on my way to getting to quit my day job and write and do art full time.
    I think for me if I could only meet one person my first reaction is to say Mat, but because he is and always has been my favorite character...... BUT when I sit down and actually think about it I would like to meet Moraine. She is the most dissimilar from myself and I think I could learn a lot from her.

    Welcome! That is a really interesting introduction to the series.

    If you lived in the WoT world, which country do you think you would be from?

    Ah, Mat is my favourite too :) But Moiraine would have so much awesome stuff to share, I agree.

    I love your avatar, btw!
