Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter, and Harper's Island.

Hello friends!

I guess this is where I'm supposed to tell you all about myself. Not much to tell, really. I'm a single working mommy of two boys, Harry Potter extraordinaire, and avid creative mind.

I'm a certified Harry Potter freak. Don't ask me how it happened. I don't know.

I'm a big fan of Draco/Hermione. I think it's because (as I've said so many times before) I'm kinda Hermione-ish, in that I'd rather read than do just about anything else, and I was sort of a goody-two-shoes know-it-all in school, plus I've always had a thing for bad boys. I'm kind of a paradox among Dramione (OMG did I really just say that?) fans though. To a lot of them, if the fic doesn't include Ron getting killed, hurt, being made a fool of, just being a straight-up idiot, or some combo of the 4, it's not a good fic. I don't mind Ron/Hermione, though. Or just about any guy with Hermione really, if it's well-written. Except Dumbledore and Snape...gross! Or Filch (I haven't even looked for any of these...I seriously hope no one's THAT twisted.) I might go on a writing spree and write a fic for the major guys-Harry (which I'm actually playing around with now), Ron , the twins, maybe Lupin, Sirius, or one of the older Weasley fellas. Take that, Draco lovers!

I am THOROUGHLY embarassed by 'Spontaneity.' It's incredibly fluffy and sappy...I don't know what came over me after the 2nd chapter. I hope I'm making up for it with 'The Game.

OK, so I didn't get nommed for the Dramiones. HOWEVER...I did get a nice write up on LJ, which suffices for me. Thank you, recc'er!! My Head Bigger-er

Harper's Island is a more recent obsession. You'll notice the addition of an alive-and-well Sully to my stories. There's a good reason for that: I love him, and he deserved a lot better than he got. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of other characters I loved that got it as well, but I dunno...Sully inspires me, I guess.


A Little More Info about Manda (for buying gifts, stalking her more effectively, etc.)

Favorite Books:
The Harry Potter series (duh)
The Princess Bride by William Goldman (that book is purely genius...I TOTALLY believed it.)
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
The Butter Battle Book by Dr. Seuss
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
The Wilde Women by Paula Wall
Chick-Lit...I'm not ashamed to admit it, I LOVE it.
There are tons of other books that I like, but these are the ones I don't mind reading over and over and over again.

Formerly the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. Then I read books 3 and 4. I'm sorry, don't lynch me if you're a fan, but Edward annoys the ever-living snot out of me, as does Bella when she's around him. Go Jacob!

Favorite Movies:
Yeah, I'm not even going to try. You'd be here for days.

Music (the groups listed here aren't the only ones I like, merely the ones I like the most):
Les Miserables--I qualify this as it's own separate category b/c it's kick-ass and totally deserves it, even if it is depressing.
Musicals--this is different from movies, mostly because I say so. Bye Bye Birdie, Grease, NEWSIES (greatest movie ever!), 1776, the new Sweeney Todd w/Johnny Depp (YUM...crazy bloody, pretty disgusting and not just a little depressing...but still awesome.
Country--classic and new, I like just about everything.
Eighties Rock, preferably of the "hair" persuasion--which doesn't get NEARLY enough airtime on the radio. I love it all. Not a band out there, that I know of, that I don't like at least one song of.
Classic Rock--Queen, the old Bon Jovi stuff
"New" Rock--Green Day, Bowling for Soup

Other Interests:
Being a mommy
Reading
Crochet
Harry Potter (XD)
Pirates of the Caribbean (Again with the yumminess)
Watching old movies (love love love Jimmy Stewart and Frank Capra)
Writing
Driving my POS '93 Buick with the windows down and the POS radio blaring while singly loudly and car-dancing
Monty Python

Favorite Harry Potter Websites:
The Harry Potter Lexicon (Big help when writing fanfiction! I don't even think JKR knows all of the stuff there.)
Accio Brain! (HP fanart site...the girl's a genius. Check it out...there's some pretty hilarious stuff on there, especially in FanArt 100 and Silly Art. DH spoilers in General Art, just as a warning!)
Potter Puppet Pals (SO funny...The Mysterious Ticking Noise is the funniest thing EVER. Watch the others too, though. He also has some good stuff on YouTube)
The Leaky Cauldron (Updates, fan stuff...some pretty good quizzes there too)
Granger Enchanted (Hermione fanfics)

Favorite NON-Harry Websites:
Wikipedia (Awesome awesome awesome...everything about everything, even if a lot of it IS completely wrong. Good starting point for a lot of stuff.)
WikiHow (How-to manual for anything...even how to take a shower and be cool...no, I'm not joking.)
Fiction Press (Like ff.net, only with original fiction)
The Internet Movie Database (Everything about every movie and actor/actress ever.)

Read my stuff...hope you like it, but it's okay if you don't. I'm not a psycho...I won't hunt you down and make you eat worms or anything.

Not Just a River in Egypt by seghen reviews

Two people have an unexpected reaction to the trauma. A bit of a stretch, highly unlikely, and definitely a step away from the norm for this series. Drabble, just for fun.
