Hello, my name is Teresa Garcia, or Teresa Huddleston-Garcia, depending on when you've met me. Other names are Lady Rain StarDragon, LadyRainStarDragon, Amehana Arashi, Amehana Ishtari, and Amethyst Stormrider.
I am a published author, and the creator of the book Series Dragon Shaman, BlowingWind, and Ryu. "Dragon Shaman, Book One: Taming the Blowing Wind" and Book Two "The Smoky Mirror" are available for sale in print and supplemented e-book editions directly at http://www.lulu.com/rainstardragon. Also available is "Call of the Kami," a collection of poetry. "Selkies' Skins" is also currently available.
My Official Publisher Website is the gateway to my publishing business, and is where you will need to go through for art or for any autographed copies or special orders. You can also go directly to my storefront.
I am also experimenting with writing serialized novels, which when finished will be available as ebooks in addition to on my LJ and my Dreamwidth. There is also a dedicated site for my serial stories. Comments and questions on "Selkies' Skins" or on "Shen's Tale" will help shape how the stories are conveyed. Once each serial story is finished, it will go to my editor before released as an ebook.
I do also write some erotica as well. As each manuscript is finished and polished, it will be released under the pen name Amethyst Stormrider at Smashwords, then through there will be available at Amazon and B&N.
I also like to role play, and a game that I recommend is DragonHearts. The land of Rhian will appear from time to time in my series "Dragon Shaman." I help out and watch the site for typos, help design quests, do admin work, and am working on a map and a few illustrations.
It's time to do a new introduction to who I am. I'm still taking a hiatus from writing fanfiction, but some of my works can be found at My FF Author Page.
I also have two beautiful kids, they get talked about here often. I love my kids very much, even though they often give me a hard time. Sometimes a VERY HARD TIME. One of the things that my daughter wants to do is to write. *chuckle* ^^ I am also a university student currently, pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in International Relations with an Asian Studies concentration. I intend to go all the way through to my Doctorate.
I have a mate that I love very much, even though he is physically very far away. So, to those that must know my relationship status... it's "Taken and Not Looking." Because there isn't any man that will be able to hold a candle to him (and he's put up with a bunch of crap from me, and seen me through a bunch of crap too).
My father passed away of cancer Dec 1, 2008.
Basically, this journal is my daily life, personal spiritual work, a chronicle of my growth as a person, and a chronicle of my work as an author, poet, and artist.
In addition to being a mother, and book author, I work as a spiritual counselor (tarot is the tool I usually employ), but demand waxes and wanes throughout the year. I like my job, but there are times where I just have to do something else for my own sanity. If you really feel like it, you can see if I'm available for counseling at www.keen.com/Lady+Rain. I can also be found at Betterist and in Second Life as Amehana Ishtari (display Amehana Reikaz, now Amehana Arashi) As currently my family life, university, and writing take up a good deal of my time, I might not be available for telephone counseling sessions for a long while. Email is a lot easier for me right now.
Original poetry and some of my original stories can also be found at http://www.fictionpress.com/~ladyrainstardragon. Each location has a few things the others don't, but eventually I plan to put all of my original work on fictionpress for easy perusal, except anything which turns out with a MA rating. That will be on AdultFanFiction only (when they are available for posting again and I jolly well feel like dealing with the hoops).
I suppose I might seem a bit odd, so I may as well say right here that I am also a priestess. I address my spiritual life in some of these entries, so to get to know this aspect of me better, you will have to pay attention.
Also, the "I" referred to is both a single unit for functionality with the world, but also composed of two parts... Ame and Hana. Most of Hana's entries she tries to make obvious as to who is speaking. It actually hasn't been very long since we have been comfortable sharing this aspect of ourself (nor very long since I have been comfortable in working with her so as to minimize "break outs" and gaps of missing time). Not everyone that I interact with is aware of this.
