Hey There! My name is Joan Marie Wilton. Iím 22 years old and the
story you will (or already have) heard is based on experiences in my own
life. As a military kid, I do a fair bit of traveling. So while I am a
natural US citizen, I was actually born in England while my Dad was on
I like to think of myself as a big kid at times.
Itís a lot of fun telling stories and doing fun games. Thatís why Iím
currently working towards Youth Services within Library systems. There
is nothing quiet like helping a kid discover the joys of reading.

telling stories that I can insert fun voices into. I find it really
helps being the character alive. As far as who I tell them to or what
itís about? I donít mind so long as whoever is listening enjoys the
story! But I suppose my big interest in storytelling is fables and
legends. Itís not just because I enjoy the classics, but because it is
interesting to see how many of todayís movies or TV shows appear to be
based on old fables. Not to mention I find it interesting how many
stories seem similar despite the cultures not having met before the
story was created.
Well, I feel you all should know
I am an Anime, Manga, and Role Playing nerd. I enjoy
these things because to be honest, they arenít just for
kids. Role Playing allows one to act out or write out a
story with others. Making it so you never quiet know
what will happen. Anime and Manga weave some truly
wonderful stories that target different age groups and
genders depending on what the story is about.
I also enjoy singing. I havenít had the
opportunity to incorporate this into my stories yet, but it doesnít help
I donít play an instrument so that makes it a little harder. Other
interests include dancing, reading, swimming, reading, cute fluffy
animals, reading, stuffed animals, reading, going to conventions for
animeÖ and cooking.
Bet you thought I was going say reading again
didnít you? Hehe. I guess thatís another hobby of mine that helps with
my storytelling. I do like to see peopleís reactions when I try certain
Arenít you glad I use my powers for good?
