Hello! My name is Duri and I’m an amateur writer and illustrator from the sunny state of Florida. I hold a B.S. and an M.S. in Dietetics and Nutrition from Florida International University (Miami, FL), however circumstances since graduation have resulted in my taking a management role at a private dental practice.
I love stories and literature, with Victorian era lit being my all time favorite; I particularly enjoy reading adventures (especially about sailing), biographies, speculative fiction, mystery, and textbooks to university courses I’ll probably never take.
Other random things I find awesome are travel, horticulture, culinary arts, public health nerdiness, hiking, music, and sports.
I love writing (and reading) adventure fiction; however I also enjoy writing (and reading, of course) fantasy, mystery, humor, some good old slice-of-life, and of course surrealism (as prose, graphic novels, and manga). While I love reading biographies, I doubt I’ll ever write one (I’ll leave that to the historians). And, last but not least—I am dreaming of the day when I have created at least one sports manga!
My all-time favorite things to read and write: Adventure & Friendship
It took me a while to reach this point in my writing but now I’m ready and there’s an arsenal of fiction waiting to see daylight. I’m excited. Like swallows from a cave, it’s time I let ’em fly!
