My parents’ name is Titchenell. They called me F.J.R., A hint about my future and a lucky guess by far, For J.R.R’s enduring world of evil versus good, For Robins both of Locksley and the Hundred Acre Wood, For Jane whose razor wit put all three Bronte girls to shame. Fiona was my own before the ogre princess came. They schooled me in my craft, but on my own I heard its call. Whatever it gives back to me, I give this task my all. I’m through and through a storyteller. That’s all I can be, No matter if by day or night, for crowds or only me. The use of words on paper to encourage and explore The beauty of the human heart and mind is what I’m for. I do this not because it’s easy nor for profit’s sake. This life’s the one that chose me and the only one I’d take.
