I'm a teacher of history and English (and a couple of minor subjects) in secondary school.
In college I became acquainted with JA; unfortunately I decided to start my JA experience with MP, which put me off for a while. MP is not a good place to start on JA, I've found. After having seen the 1995 P&P adaptation I decided to give JA another chance, and fell in love.
I started writing JA fanfic in summer 2000, when I didn't have much else to do. It began as a kind of therapy and escapism, and has become my main hobby in the meantime. My other hobbies include reading, and music.
My main haunt at DWG is the ANI board, where I post my original, non-JA based stories. Though I do write the occasional fanfic piece just for the fun of it.
