Author has written 11 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, and Bleach.

“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. I mean everybody. All of the people in the whole world, I mean everybody — no matter how dull and boring they are on the outside. Inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds... Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands, maybe.”
― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 5: A Game of You


It’s hard to believe I have been writing on this site since 2006. I got into fan fiction because I wanted to write some stories for my daughter. Now seven years later I write for myself and for the readers I have come to know and befriend on this site. My fandoms may have changed, but my love for writing continues.

I feel as if I have been creating fan fiction all my life (before it was ever Fan Fiction – before they even had personal computers, let alone laptops). I created stories to pass the time on car trips, bus rides to school, or classes that just ran too long or dull. I never wrote them down until I started writing here. And now I am hoping to cross that bridge from fan fiction to an original works, once again at my daughter’s request.

I have pulled my story Changeling from this site. I had grown dissatisfied with the story because I had veered too far from the plot and tried to develop way too many characters. Now I would like to give it serious consideration and see if I can re-create it into the story I imagined when I began.

I am grateful for the encouragement of my friend and beta, lilarin, as well as my daughter. I hope to turn Changeling into a story I can be proud to share with all my friends, not just those that frequent this site.

I want to thank all the readers who have enjoyed my stories and left such encouraging reviews. I hope to continue posting new stories here as my muse finds inspiration.
