Mirriam Neal – iBeGat.com Writer
I am, first and foremost, a Christian, and have been since I was six years old. I love the Lord and am trying to please Him to the best of my ability. I am an avid reader, and lean toward fiction although several of my favorite books (the Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien, Blue Like Jazz, Primal, The Barbarian Way, The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien, the Soul of C. S. Lewis, etc.) are non-fiction.
I adore fantasy (Tolkien, Lewis, Shannon Hale, George McDonald, Bryan Davis, Wayne Batson, Frank Peretti, Clair Dunkle, Cornelia Funke, Ted Dekker, etc.) as well as Science Fiction (Timothy Zahn, Gilbert Morris) and mysteries (The Phantom of the Opera, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, Agatha Christie). I like pretty much any genre! I am also a dedicated Authoress—my life is warped because of it, but I love it (and when I’m by myself, I have my characters to talk to!). I’m also an illustrater – I do commissions for people, I’ve illustrated an Elf Anthology and am a regular illustrator for Aletheia magazine.
I love meeting and making new friends; be it letter-writing (which I do with a good old-fashioned wax seal and feather pen) emailing, or talking on the phone (longest phone call record: two hours) and especially talking face-to-face! I love fashion, and do my best to dress in a fun way every day.
I love animals, and I love music (soundtracks, Christian, K-pop, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Immediate Music, X-ray Dog, Taylor Swift, Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Owl City, Hayley Westenra… the list goes on and on). My favorite movies are the Last of the Mohicans, G. I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inkheart, the Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, Robin Hood(s), Star Trek, the Fantastic Four(s), the Spider-mans, Batman Begins, Iron Man, (I love Hero movies) and many, many more.
I love to sing. I also love to act, when I get the chance to do so. I love blue, green, silver, and black. I am a Devoted Hoodie ( a fan of Robin Hood—particularly the BBC TV series) as well as a Trekkie (Live long and prosper!) Half of me loves medieval, girlie, whimsical, fantasy things, while the other half of me is a Secret Agent. I would tell you more, but I wouldn’t want to bore you.
