Intro: Aimee Hyndman

I was still half asleep the morning I got the email from Operation Awesome saying that they wanted me to be their newest contributor. Soon after reading this email, I was no longer asleep. It’s a huge honor to have been chosen, especially considering my experience level.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been writing for a long time, like we all have. I caught the writing bug before I could even write actual words and started filling random sheets of paper with scribbles. I claimed I was writing books in my own secret language. When people asked me to read them the story, I spun tales of dragons and dinosaurs and adorable talking animals. As soon as I could write in a real language, I did, horrible spelling and all. For me, writing truly has been a lifelong passion and something I’ve been working toward since my little toddler fist put pencil to paper.

I’m a wee little college student now, but still working at it. I just landed an agent in February (squee) and hope to go out on submission with my steampunk fantasy novel HOUR OF MISCHIEF. Fantasy is my wheel house and lifelong passion, especially in the young adult catagory (since I am technically still a young adult). I also work on the other side of the table as an intern for a literary agency where I sort through the slush. It has been a very rewarding experience.

My other interests include movies, theater, music (of many sorts), anime, good food and, of course, READING. Things I become rabidly protective over if provoked include Harry Potter (I AM the HP generation), Inkheart, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Les Miserables, everything Disney, and a long list of Animes I can’t even begin to list.

I have a personal blog here, I tweet on occasion, and I am active on pintrest and youtube. I’m so excited to start contributing on this site!
