Author has written 4 stories for 10th Kingdom, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

I have a great love for characters and plots...especially if they have a happy ending. Long sagas with plenty of strong women characters are especially my favorites.

I love writing about the strong women in my AU of "The Tenth Kingdom." Virginia, who always seems to be remaking herself. Rose, who tries to be a proper fairy tale princess but really wants to be a general. Matilde, who did her best to run away from her duties at one point, but now is impatient with anyone getting in the way of her work. And who couldn't love Wolf, Virginia's husband who struggles with wanting a quiet life in the woods and the burden of leadership. While his wife often tries to not deal with her feelings, Wolf dives into his headlong.

And then of course there's Buffy! In my world she learns to embrace who she is...which is what most of us have to do. And the soft hearted one time poet William the Bloody, for me is just as much her match as Wolf is Virginia's. I'm a Spuffy through and through. Though Spike eagerly embraces his position as supporter of The Slayer, while Wolf's desires are more simple.

The only trouble is, I just can't seem to write anything short.
