Author has written 23 stories for Newsies, Star Trek: 2009, and Supernatural.

East-coast-dwelling Midwesterner. Slash writer. Javid fangirl. Reboot trekker. SPN minion. Friendly person. Say hi!

Find me on LJ: sometimes the living is sweet

For those who are SPN fans, there is a fic or two more and plenty of meta to be found at the link above.

For those who are Trek slash fans, there is Kirk/McCoy smut and a smidgen of Kirk/Spock also on LJ.

For those who are Newsies slash fans, I give you The Refuge.


I continue to create because writing is a labor of love and also an act of defiance, a way to light a candle in a gale. -- Alice Childress
