General biography

Ywain Penbrydd, 27, has two BAs -- English Literature and Western Religion -- and half an MA in English Literature. He hopes to either teach or work in a library, someday, because "books are so much more entertaining than people". Most of his writing is NC-17, because it seems to be what the fans want to read.
