Hi everyone. I'm still here and I've been getting your lovely reviews and PMs. I'm deeply, deeply sorry I've not gotten back with any of you--been having a real hard time with some health issues and I feel so much pressure to give the perfect reply or to give you all an update that I end up going quiet instead. I'm so sorry guys. Sincerely, its an epic fail on my part--which seems to be my main mode these days. I actually do have a chapter of What Comes After ready to post--but I've been trying really hard to get a second one ready because a little birdy who beta read it told me I'd better have the next one ready to go or you all might kill me. So. I'm trying. It's going slow mostly because I feel like such a hack at this these days and for other reasons. My deepest apologies for whatever its worth. Anyway, I'm still working on it, I've not thrown in the towel. Thank you all for your abiding patience and encouraging words. Much love to you all.

Note#1: I will do my best to make sure Sam and Dean sound like Sam and Dean and seem canon, but one of the reasons I enjoy writing fan fiction is so I can explore my POV and bend things the way I want them to be--which means I'm not obsessed with making my stories sound exactly like an actual episode, just so you know. At times, I might push the envelope a little. I'm a self-professed hurt!Dean addict and I do like whumping on him, expect plenty of that. Also, I enjoy angsty Dean with some emotion--my version of what I see in between the lines--and I dig the emo to a certain extent (loved season two Dean). The only other thing you need to know is that I'm totally into brotherly love and loving both brothers (my stories are GEN ;) ).
Note#2: I recently discovered that one of my stories, "An Act of Deliberation (now titled "An Act of Desperation)," won two Supernatural Fanfiction Awards (as hosted by sensue.net). Not only was I shocked, but I was pretty much floored. I had no idea. So, to everyone, I say thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
Round 14 Winner of:
"The Wake-Up Call," Best Alternate Universe story, 2006 Supernatural.tv Awards
"What Comes After," Best Alternate Universe story, 2008 Supernatural.tv Awards
Thanks to each and EVERY person who has voted for me. I'm so grateful that you enjoyed the stories and humbled that you thought them worthy of an award of any kind. I cannot express how much I appreciate it and have been stunned by your responses.
I'm a married mother of two who is unnaturally crazy for the show Supernatural. My poor hubby and kids think I have lost my mind because I take my show very seriously (shh, don't talk--Sam and Dean are on). I've been married for about 20 plus years now (married right out of high school) and, above and beyond all, my family is my life. I think my strong passion for and dependence on my family is one of the reasons I love Supernatural and especially the character of Dean.That family loyalty and self-sacrifice for loved ones is the crux of what makes Supernatural so enjoyable for me to watch.
Even though I enjoyed writing during my junior high/high school years, I consider myself a novice at it because I didn't get much of a chance to perfect my creative writing skills during my college years and for several years thereafter--long story I won't bore you with--so bare with me and my amateur fumbling. However good or bad I am at it, coming back to writing after so many years has been a real blessing to me.
I graduated from college with a Bachelor's in Art Education K-12, but quickly decided smaller class sizes and more structure was a better fit for me and jumped ship for a career in Special Education. Presently, I'm teaching Special Education classes in Science and Communication Arts for 5-8th grades where a I share a classroom with my sister. Oh, yeah, every day is an adventure!
The other shows that I have been completely engrossed in are House MD, Early Edition, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Dead Zone, and the late great Farscape. Currently, I also enjoy Once Upon a Time, Grimm, and Psych. However, only Supernatural has been an inspiration to actually write fan fiction.
Dean is obviously my favorite of the two brothers and I love to see his layers in the show--or his anything, really. FYI, I love Castiel, too, so don't expect any Cas bashing here. But Dean will always be the heart of my passion because there is something extra special about Jensen's portrayal of him that just draws me completely in--maybe it's Jensen's facial expressions, the way he does angsty-broken so well, or the depth of his character? Okay, it doesn't hurt that I'm a sucker for green-eyed men (my husband and I both have green eyes, too) and think he's the most gorgeous man I've ever laid eyes on, tee-hee.
My favorite kind of character has always been the tortured hero who is willing to sacrifice himself/herself for their loved ones. If I seem to gravitate that way, don't be surprised. Also, I am NOT a weekly updater because I do have a busy family life that includes school-age kids (I mention school age because, oy, the homework!), very close ties to my extended family, several pets and a full-time job--so please forgive me if I take a couple of weeks or more to get new chapters up (and did I mention I may have a touch of ADD--yes, I can relate to the kids I teach).
My favorite things to do (besides watch Supernatural and stare longingly at Jensen ;) ) include: writing (obviously), camping/swimming, making fan art/fan vids, photography, horticulture/gardening, reading, watching movies, listening to music, spending time "in nature" and last, but not least, spending time with my family. My favorite published author at this time is Nicholas Sparks and, yes, I own nearly all that he has written and he always manages to make me cry (dang you, Sparks!). However, if I had to pick ONE fictional book, I'd have to say my favorite would have to be Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells. It made me laugh and cry and sometimes both at the same time and that's a beautiful combination. I also enjoy sci fi fantasy/fantasy fiction books (Terry Brooks or Tolkien, anyone?), the dreaded romance novel (stop rolling your eyes at me), and I have a real soft spot for John Grisham's Skipping Christmas.
The books are just so much better than the movies to me. Yes, even the Star Wars series. Wore the cover of Return of the Jedi right off--literally.
If, for whatever reason, you want to know more about me (though I can't imagine why), check out my LiveJournal (link at bottom of the page). I don't use it much these days, but it does contain a bit more about me than I'm willing to put here. Lastly, most authors are slaves to reviews and I'm no exception, so when you finish reading a story, please leave me a blurb on what you thought--I need all the encouragement I can get. Happy reading to you all and God bless!
