My name's Shannon, I'm 34 and I'm currently an English teacher and language assistant in a bilingual school in Madrid, Spain. However I was born in Philadelphia, USA and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

In the past, I have written fanfiction for both CSI and Angel - I'm currently trying to finish what could be my last Angel fic. We'll see what happens there.

I am also attempting to write my first novel. Thanks to NaNo 2010, I'm a little over 50,000 words in, but still a long way to go...

Films: anything by Baz Luhrmann, the Coen Brothers, David Lynch, Jane Campion or Pedro Almodovar (yep, quite a selection) - I also adore Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn movies and am a indie film junky.

Music: Ani DiFranco is a musical genius and goddess. I also love Uh Huh Her, the Indigo Girls, Alanis Morissette, Portishead, Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Tracy Chapman, Counting Crows, REM, Macy Grey, Joni Mitchel, k.d. Lang, to name but a few...

Books: Fav. authors include Patricia Cornwell, Linda Fairstein, Tami Hoag, Ursula Le Guin, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Virginia Woolf, Oscar Wilde and J.K. Rowling.

Fav. TV Shows: CSI, Buffy tVS, Angel, Twin Peaks, The L Word, Xena WP, Outrageous Fortune, Brothers & Sisters, How I Met Your Mother, Friends.
