Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.
Thank you for reading my stories and I'm sorry I haven't let you know anything about me earlier, but I never know what to write on these things.
My husband and I are self-employed. We produce a small, regional magazine.
My loves include my family and friends, my one dog and two cats (which are both family and friends, but deserve a special mention), writing, art, travel (which I rarely get to do at the moment), children (though I have none of my own, so I try to be a GREAT aunt), gardening, yoga and exploring my spiritual relationship with the universe.
I took creative writing classes back when I was in college, and have a few short stories from those days. I also have a drawer full of unshared poems and a handful of children's stories that I have written over the years. I also am a devout believer in journaling. (Perhaps I will eventually dig into that drawer, severely re-edit and post some of my old pieces here.)
Then I discovered Harry Potter and fanfiction.
And, basically, I had such fun writing my two HP fanfics, that I have convinced myself that I want be a writer in the "real world." So that is now my current passion and intent. I am taking writing classes, have joined a writer's group and consider your comments a vital part of my learning, so please review.
I appreciate all reviews, especially any that tell me how I can improve my plot, characterizations, descriptions and writing style. Feel free to offer all the constructive criticism you can think of. I need all of the help I can get, as there are obviously a lot of talented writers that never get published.
I do not know if, or when, I will be writing more HP fanfic. I managed to include most of my ideas and speculations prior to the release of Deathly Hallows in "A Breach in the Wall," and DH, being the last book did not leave me with a bunch of unanswered questions demanding resolution. (However, I feel Snape, Luna, Ginny, Neville and the Dursleys did not get enough time in DH and deserve more, so maybe . . .). Besides, I am now working on my own fantasy novel.
"A Breach in the Wall" was originally finished late 2006 and posted on another website in early 2007 (thank you to my SugarQuill beta reader). The Prologue begins after Petunia gets the Howler in Book 5, and then picks up again as Book 5 ends, taking Harry and the Dursleys through the summer. The story then skips over Book 6, assuming that you have read it, and finishes up the saga of Harry Potter -- my version, of course. My second story, "Windows to the Soul" is a companion piece. I would have included it in "Breach" except that it was written after "Breach" was finished and I didn't know quite where to fit it in.
Thank you again for reading my stories and reviewing them.

UPDATE: I want to thank each and every one of you for reading, reviewing and/or adding me as a favorite. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Even though I have not posted any new stories, I wanted to let you know that I still eagerly await any and all reviews, and get a thrill when one of them pops into my mailbox. --MGQ
