Author has written 1 story for Northanger Abbey.

I love to write because I love to create. I love to create characters and situations that can make someone laugh and cry... even if that someone ends up being nobody besides myself. :) I also love coffee, happy people, acoustic music, mangoes, indie movies and the smells of new books and orange rinds.

Books you MUST read:

I Capture the Castle

...hmm. That might be the only must-read that I know of for a reader/writer.
honestly. Brilliant.

And must-see movie? North & South BBC miniseries. NO, it does not have Patrick Swayze in it. PLEASE. This is England's north and south, not some Civil War melodrama. Anyway. Its cinematography is stunning, the (tragically unavailable) soundtrack is spellbinding, and, to top it all off, it is the ultimate P&P fanfic. NO JOKE. Ms. Gaskell of the 19th century beat you all to the punch. So watch this and learn to deal.
...oh, and just so you know, it has a beautiful man in it.
Yes. I know the fanfic type.

If you're here because of my NA modernization, I'm sorry to say that inspiration has run dry. And it's my fault. 3rd person, slightly omniscient narration is painfully boring to write, and it's only fun to read if it's written by Jane Austen. Besides, this narration leads to insufficient amounts of witty dialogue, and all of my dialogue is particularly dull at the moment. I hope to buckle down and revamp the old chapters, though, because I LOVE NA and it deserves the best!

Red Light, Green Light by orchidvines reviews
You're a little screwed up. No, seriously. Everything you meddle in just spontaneously combusts. Kind of like the Midas Touch, but just, you know, less about gold and more about crap. Emma, Modern Day.
