Is a lot harder to figure out than I thought. 

Sorry for another journal...

But anyway. My grandmother has probably spent a good chunk of her life researching our families genetics and ancestry. I've always been interested in stuff like that, but when I went on the interwebs to see if I could do a little research myself, I was just bombarded with waaayyyy too much information. I don't know how she does it. I don't even know where to begin. 

She managed to trace the whole thing back to Duke William I Longsword. The history is amazing and I have yet to go through all of it to read up on my ancestors. I'm sure I'm not the only one that can have their bloodlines traced back to him, but it's still pretty cool to see that I'm distantly related to kings and queens, even if it doesn't amount to much. When she first gave me the family tree paper I was in 6th grade or 7th grade, so I waved it around in my friends faces like "bitch, I'm related to Kings." What kid wouldn't? But what I want to learn now is how directly related am I? The sheet I have shows a direct line back to Duke William I, but it's not completely direct, branching off from Princess Constance of England.

I found a family tree and I'm not sure if it's completely correct, but you can trace it all the way down to Constance (across from Henry V) So it basically goes:

William I 'the Conqueror'
King Henry I
Queen Matilda
King Henry II
King Henry III
King Edward I Longshanks
King Edward II
King Edward III
Edmund 'of Langley' Prince of England
Princess Constance

This family tree doesn't show the names I have after Constance. Mine has her 'marrying' a Edmund de Holland. I've been trying to sort it out all morning, but I think I'm going to wait until I can see my grandmother and sort it out with her. Who knows how correct everything is on the internet anyway.…

There's much information to sort through, but I thought it was interesting enough to share with you guys. Can anybody else trace their bloodlines back to the middle ages? I've always been interested in that time period anyway and I really want to write something set in the middle ages, I just have to read up on it all first.

My commission list…

I love to write, draw, and take pictures.

I've been drawing since I could pick up a pencil and started photography when I was given my first camera on my sixteenth birthday. I've been writing since about fourteen. I've successfully completed 3 novels (with lots more on the way) and one is published. Most of my free time is spent writing. And a couple unique facts about me...I'm left handed. I am six feet tall. And I've never broken a bone...even though I'm klutzy and accident prone.

I got my first book published in June of 2012. You can find it here… or here… I also have a folder in my gallery about it. It would be a dream to see one of my books made into a movie. I can only hope:)

I have a Facebook page for my book here…
