I have been reading and writing fanfiction off and on for close to twenty years, and have casually pursued writing as a professional interest for roughly the same amount of time. During that time my interest has spanned from poetry, to playwriting, to academic essays, and now I am pretty firmly in the novel-writing camp. I use fanfiction primarily as a way to explore the headcanon I am continually expanding and updating, and occasionally to test ideas I have for original fiction I'm not quite ready to flesh out on their own. Though I don't make as much time for reading as my TBR list would like, my primary influences over writing are Audrey Niffeneggar, Neil Gaiman, and Haruki Murakami. I currently work as a multi-store human resources manager for a major department store chain, and live in Richmond, VA with my husband, who is also a writer, and our daughter, who is training to be a supervillain. We spend most of our free time together drinking craft beer (minus the toddler--she much prefers milk), being outdoors as much as possible, and predicting future plotlines in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
-I am summonerluna pretty much everywhere on the internet--tumblr, dA, livejournal, A03, and 8tracks--if you see me somewhere, please feel free to say hello!
-I do not attend cons as frequently as I used to, but still try to make it to at least Dragon Con and Katsucon and/or MAGFest every year--though any of the Delmarva area cons are always a possibility
-Fifteen Minutes Old, The Successor, and Roll Away Your Stone are related, but none of my other works are. (At least, not intentionally)
Ronin-ai has drawn two absolutely gorgeous pieces of art for The Successor, which can be found on her deviantArt page. "Rising Tide," directly from one of the scenes in the story, and "Centra Shore," which is based on a photograph of myself and my daughter that she modified to be a scene of Rinoa and her daughter.
Also related to The Successor, I made an FST for it which is posted on 8 tracks: After the Storm
