Author has written 39 stories for Coldfire Trilogy, and Sherlock Holmes.

Between night and day, where stars whisper in shadows, where light meets darkness and darkness meets light, let my voice speak into your ear to tell you stories of friendship and betrayal, of love and sorrow, of life, loss and shadows...


Because so many of you asked:

Survivalsverse chronologically:

'Naming Children'

'Survivals' incl. side stories 'Daughterly Duty' (set in Ch. 3), 'Jewelry' and 'Shovel Talk' (both set in Ch. 5)

'Something Old, Something New': WIP

'Speaking Of Survival'

'Relatives'

'You Are In My Heart'

'The Care And Feeding Of Stubborn Scientists': WIP

'Family Matters': WIP

WIP status:

'Collecting Legends': Chapter 15 written, revision almost done. Seven more chapters planned.

'History': Chapter 3 partly written.

'Family Matters': Remains partly done. Not one of my priorities right now though that might change.

'Something Old, Something New': will be finished this year. Hopefully.

'Karma' Series: Part 2: almost done.

'Ante Bellum': Mostly done.

I'm also working on more side stories and sequels in the Survivalsverse as well as on one more Sherlock Holmes story. Of course, there will be 'Survivals' unrelated stories, too. I even may occasionally stray into other fandoms.

Please note that I don't use my profile for any update news. Those can be found on my livejournal profile.

Tons of 'Thank You's to all readers and reviewers!

My special thanks to Canary Yellow and the Coyotes - their reviews always make me laugh, to Saris - for her unending support right from the start, to telly brat - for her insight, to Herdcat - for her straight to the point comments, to Dragoness Anna - for her honesty, to SaraTeasdale - for her faith in my writing skills, and to all fellow authors - for keeping the fandom alive!

I finally got an AO3 account, people, and am going to repost my fics there. Also, some of the higher rated fics will go straight to AO3.

Question of the Week (asked by summer on erna):

What's your favorite CF fanfic and why?

Answer in one hundred words or less, don't write on the back of the page. *he he* Difficult, there're so many wonderful fics around here. If forced to decide, I'd choose two: 'Carry on dancing' by Kagedtiger because it was the first CF fic I ever read, and 'Translation' by Merry because of excellent writing and a wonderful idea.
