For the last several years, writing has been a passion of mine and something that I love to do. The first thing I ever wrote was a small collection of poems about the seasons for my mother. I started writing children stories for my niece and nephews and wrote one for a sixth grade International Club project, where stories we wrote were being sent to another country. In 2008 I joined MyWritersCircle, a writing forum where you can share your work, receive feedback, and engage in active conversations and other opportunities that help to strengthen your skills as a writer. This was the same year I started writing fanfiction. My first successful fan fiction was Vampire Knight, the Desirable Climax: The Expected Romance, which I posted on Fanfiction.net in 2008, after the anime started to air in Japan. It was a novella which has since been removed.
In 2010, I wrote a poem called Slap, which was published in the March issue of Teen Ink’s monthly magazine, under my real name. I also was published every year starting from my sophomore year in my high school literary magazines. My first publicized short story in these magazines was called “Agatha”, a short ghost story (which is currently being edited to be posted to this site). I’ve had multiple pen names, including Reiko Hasagawa, Evelyn Graye Stone, Envii Stone, Quartet Zaelyn, and Oreo Cafe. The pen name Marie Meyers is in honor of my mom.
In the 2013-2014 year, I published what has been my most successful fan fiction to date, a Reign fan fic called The Petals that Fall. I am currently working on the sequel. In 2016 I began rewriting The Petals that Fall. I am also a beta reader/writer on Fanfiction.net, and have worked with a few writers in the development and publication of their stories.
With my writing career, I plan to become a published author, editor, and publicist.
A MESSAGE TO MY FOLLOWERS, FANS, SUPPORTERS, AND READERS:
I just want to thank you all for your continued support and love of my writing. Seeing the reactions to the worlds I create is something I delight in the most and it’s a rewarding experience to be able to share my inner thoughts with you. Thank you again for being a part of my journey.
