Hoomi, I like that too.
I am glad there's a name for Mary Sue. I find her all over the place (especially in Victorian Literature) and I hate her. I've often thought the very same things, but never written them down quite so well.
I find fewer Marty Stus. But I am inclined to believe that I create them sometimes.
However, I don't think there's anything wrong with an author being a character in his book, so long as he's honest about his faults.
I write adventures, historical fiction, war stories, fantasies, psychological and spy thrillers.
Snaga - fan fiction fantasy
Emira - action adventure
Confessions of an Evil Genius - psychological thriller
The Play-Actor - sci-fi, historical, psychological spy thriller
Dreamreader - YA psychological thriller
A fantasy without a title
Royal Opposition - action adventure
