Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter.

I am a mother of two young boys whom I blame for my HP hobby. Just when it seemed that to have any fun 'me' time required hiring a sitter and going to more trouble than it was worth, I discovered online fandom. I have always loved to read, and in my youth thought it would be great to be a writer. Fanfiction is a fun way to actually get something written that others will read, while leaving time for my job and the kids.

My favorite character in HP is (surprise!) Severus Snape, and all but two of the stories I have posted here are about him. I find it fascinating to speculate about how he came to be the character Harry knows and hates in the books. I admire his cool intellect and bleed for his (usually hidden) emotional side. But most of all, I am drawn to the idea that the character represents for me: that, however awful our past choices may have been, there is always the possibility, even the duty, to do what one can to straighten out the mess one has made.
