Author has written 17 stories for Sky High, Fairy Tales, Black Cat, Final Fantasy: Unlimited, Bible, and Sherlock.

I’m over 30 and I’m from South Africa. My long-term career plans still involve finding a rich husband so I don’t need a job because then I can write full-time … no luck yet, but I’m still trying ;)

I’ve made up stories all my life, but I’ve always struggled to write them down. So I started writing fan fiction a few years ago as practice, and I have really learned a lot – and I’d like to think that my writing has improved. It’s certainly becoming easier to put down on paper what I see in my head.

I am currently taking a break from writing fan fiction, apart from a one-shot now and then, in order to concentrate on my works of original fiction which I’m hoping to publish one day, one of which is a fantasy trilogy and another is a historical Christian novel. I recently spent 15 months in England doing research for these stories, and after spending all my savings, I’m now trying to get a job that will allow me time to work on my writing, which I hope will someday bring glory to God and encourage other believers.

Reichenbach one-shot, somewhat AU, not slash. A look at Sherlock's thoughts after Moriarty shot himself, AU in that he doesn't have a plan for faking his death in this version so his angst is genuine... (not a death-fic)
