Author has written 17 stories for Chuck, Smallville, Harry Potter, Princess Bride, and Merlin.
I'm that mom you see at soccer practice hiding behind her laptop. No I'm not working, I'm reading and writing fanfiction
4/1/13 Thanks to the mobile app I'm back reading fanfiction after not reading any for years. Even the last year I was writing, I had really stopped reading. I think about my unfinished stories often (She Watched Him From Her Window, The Knife Thrower and the HP one) and still somewhere in my head I plan to finish them. I've also written a crack fic for Once Upon a Time, but I won't even start to post it until I'm finished with it. I'm disciplining myself that way. Stay tuned. When I first started writing here I defined myself as a soccer mom, that is no longer true as all my kids but one have moved into teenagerdome. Now it's a totally different kind of busy; the kind that doesn't involved dead time.
1/12 I haven't written much but in honor of the end of Chuck, I'm dusting off an unfinished story that's been sitting on my harddrive for awhile. Hopefully I have the sticktoitivness to finish it. I haven't been around the fanfiction scene much, but I haven't forgotten that this place, and Chuck fanfiction had a great impact on my life.
2/11 I got the magazine advanced copy in the mail this week. My children's story has been published! It's been edited (they even changed the tense) and chopped, but it's still fundamentally mine. I even got paid. I guess that means that I'm officially a writer.
8/4/10 I got word a week ago that my magazine short story will be published in March. I got the final edit and they cut another chunk out of it. So what was already a short story is now a super short story - maybe 600 words. I also wrote and submitted a short story for a competition this last month, but didn't win. I've published that story at my ldsfiction dot net site. I'd also like to thank all of you that voted for "Revelations" and "Sarah Verses the Princess Bride" in the Chuck Fanfiction Writing Awards. I didn't win, but as always, it's just a privilege to have been nominated.
11/18/09 The good news is that the small children's magazine I sent my stories to is interested in one of them. Last week I signed over all my rights to the story and they picked it up for "possible publication". Now it's a waiting game to see if they will actually publish it or not. The other story I sent them was out and out rejected. I'm still writing every day but I haven't produced anything publishable on this site yet. Hopefully soon. As for my H.P. story... I hate to abandon it, but for now it's on the back burner. It wasn't received very well and I have other projects that may be more successful. So I apologize to the five regular readers of that story. Oh, and one last hint for anyone taking the time to actually read this. My story was published in the Who Are You Compilation.
10/21 I've written a little one shot for the Who Are You Challenge. I wrote it in an afternoon so it isn't my best work, but at least it is a Chuck fic; I haven't written one of those in awhile. The link is here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5459119/1/The_WHO_ARE_YOU_Compilation
I haven't forgotten about my Harry Potter story. Unfortunately it has had very poor readership. The HP fandom is a different kind of place and it has made me appreciate the Chuck fandom and my fellow writers there all the more. For perspective, at this point in Revelations I had over 500 readers per chapter. My HP fic has 30.
On a personal point, I've been writing more seriously and have actually submitted some stories to magazines. I went to a writer's conference and I've been reading books about improving my writing. There is so much to learn; you could spend a lifetime writing and still learn new things with each new project.
7/17 I've started publishing my Harry Potter story. I decided to take the old thing out of moth balls and rework it. I was surprised when I first read it after it sitting for a year that it wasn't so bad.
In other news, my turn to write my second chapter for the Chuck round robin is coming up! Look for my chapter to be published in about two weeks.
5/13: Breaking news! I'm part of a Round Robin story that was posted today: Chuck vs the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Really Bad Day. You can visit the Authors Intersect profile page and learn more about the project here: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1928966/Authors_Intersect.
3/28/09: So I've decided to give out a little more info about myself here. I figure if you're reading this then you must be interested at least a little bit. I have a degree in Criminal Justice (I minored in English) and worked several years as a secretary for a couple different police departments, with a goal to eventually become a police officer. To make a long story short I gave up working when my second child was born and I've been home with my kids ever since. This has been one of the best blessings in my life and I don't regret giving up my career at all. One thing that has endeared me to the character Sarah in the TV show Chuck is that I realized that I am living the life that she (at unguarded times) dreams of; I have the husband, kids, church functions and PTA meetings. I suppose if a shrink looked around in my head he could write a whole paper on how I live vicariously my unchosen life path by writing about Chuck/Sarah. Perhaps, but you will find that family is a strong theme in everything I write - because that is what is closest to my heart.
A couple more things you might be interested in. I sing, play the guitar and teach a few students and piano and do a little hobby song writing. I wish there was a site to post songs like we do fanfiction - but alas, no. I also like to jog and listen to Kelly Clarkson. I guess that's enough about me. Enough babbling! I hope you aren’t crying tears of boredom by now. If so, read one of my stories. I try hard to make them entertaining.
