Hello, dears. Welcome to Written Things, a compilation of miniature essays, blurbs, and the occasional fun fact.

Here, I hope to inspire you on your writing journey in whatever genre or business venture you partake. Under Writing Help, you might find a tidbit of knowledge to take with you, or if you peruse my personal Bookshelf, feel free to grab a little read for the road. The knowledge I bestow upon you is wedged predominantly in the fantasy fiction genre, but I do hope the lessons in basic technical writing will prove of some use to you.

A little About me and what I do around here:

I am a redhead by birth, which some seem to believe comes with a gifting of supernatural powers, and indeed, healing, longevity, and/or eternal life properties. It does not. Yes, trust me, there’s nothing supernatural going on here. And even if there was, would I tell you?


I am an author and blogger. My work is self-published which is a long and arduous task, but well worth the effort. I have three novels published with a fourth in the works. I am always writing, always daydreaming, always developing some idea in the back of my mind. My job requires no small amount of people watching, so I tend to gather personalities and traits from all over for story material.

I am also an artist. All of the Artwork you’ll see involving my books has been conceptualized and produced by me. I design all my own book covers, interior artwork, and illustrations. I’m not saying this to “toot my own horn”, but just to inform you how awesome I am.


Do not be alarmed when you see my page shift and transform into different creatures—creations. By design of being an artist, I tend to shake up my image, rearrange furniture, and, yes, redesign my blog website. The message will always be the same, and that is to enlighten you as readers, writers, and really rad people.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you take something away with you when you go. As they say in the Old Sod:

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been, the foresight to know where you are going, and the insight to know when you have gone too far.

This has been,

Fanny T. Crispin
