Author bio

I've loved writing pretty much all my life, but Reedsy is the first writing contest that I ever entered. I enjoy writing fiction and realistic fiction stories. Reedsy's creative writing prompts help to inspire me. Thanks, Reedsy! 😊 Joke: Q: Did you hear about the writer who became a baker? A: They say he makes excellent synonym rolls. 🤣 A little bit about myself, I love to read, write, draw, and make things out of yarn. I can make hats, knit, and finger weave. To find out how to do these things, go to these links: https://youtu.be/Zds2S6RxHJs https://www.redtedart.com/finger-knitting-how-to/ https://youtu.be/Egp4NRhlMDg I also play the ukulele. I'm a Christan, and I love Jesus very much. As I said, I love to read, so if you want to let me know about a good book to read, let me know in the comment section of one of my stories. The genres I enjoy are mystery, suspense (but not horror), adventure, comedy, creative non-fiction, and fantasy. My favourite author is Gordon Korman, books by him that I liked are Restart, The unteachables, the On The Run series, the Kidnapped series, the whole Island series, and more. The book I'm currently reading is the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, (book by C.S. Lewis). Anyone who can read English should read it, along with the other Narnian stories, the Magician's Nephew, Horse and His Boy, Prince Caspian, Voyage of the Dawn Trader, The Silver Chair, and The Last Battle. It's in the Chronicles of Narnia series. To anyone who has read my bio to the end, thank you, and now you know a little bit about me. :) Honestly, if you're still reading this, you need to get a hobby.
