MystiCon is happy to announce our 2013 scholarship winner. Maura Lydon won for her written piece titled “The Catfolk Druid”. MystiCon is very happy to help encourage such a talented young author.
Hello. I am Maura Lydon, age seventeen. I’m a senior at Franklin County High, but I’ve only been there since the start of my senior year. Before that I attended high school in the International School of Stuttgart. I suppose you could say I’m originally from Maryland, because that’s where I was born.
I’ve been writing since I was in third grade. It didn’t take much to convince me that that was what I was meant to do. The story I submitted was actually part of a Dungeons and Dragons character, because I believe my adventurers should have a good reason for adventuring. I am so happy to have received this award. I love writing, and it is immensely gratifying to know someone enjoyed reading what I have written. I plan to attend college for a creative writing degree, and I after that I am going to be a fantasy novelist.
