Author has written 7 stories for Vampire Academy, and Greek Mythology.

First, an explanation of my profile name: Aethelflaed was an English queen, also known as Lady of the Mercians, long before England unified under one crown. She married one of her father's allies and proved herself to be an expert military strategist and warrior. There is plenty of speculation as to her relationship with her husband, Aethelred of Mercia, especially considering that they had one child, a daughter. The birth of this daughter almost killed Aethelflaed, according to some sources. Though it was a daughter, Aethelflaed's brother, king of Wessex, must have seen her as a legitimate ruler due to the efforts he took to remove her from power after the death of Aethelflaed. The exact details of this woman's life are part of my continuous historical study. There are many records and many areas of speculation and many often contradictory explanations, as is often the case with any sort of historical scholarship. One thing all sources and historians agree upon is that Aethelflaed was a truly remarkable woman, gaining respect from those who would often sneer at kings. I was introduced to this woman's existence when I read "The Edge on the Sword" by Rebecca Tingle when I was in high school and I could not get her out of my mind for years. When I was taking a class on early Medieval History in college I decided to make her the subject of a research paper. While my historic studies have strayed from studying Europe, this woman has fascinated me for over a decade of my life.


About me:

I have a degree in History and hope to pursue graduate school. I love the creative exploration that fan fiction allows because it acts as a starting point for many who have amazing creative talent. I often find that as my fan fiction develops it becomes a story independent of the original inspiration.


My philosophy about writing:

The only way to get better at writing is to sit down and do it.Seriously, too many people get overwhelmed by all the advice out there and so they try to do the equivalent of running a triathlon or tough mudder before they have even walked a mile, so to speak. I used to write fan fiction but right now I co-writing an independent work (still in the rough draft stage)I am a teacher by profession and I would love to act as a beta as soon as I qualify. Editing work and helping others hone their ideas is what I do, matter how bad you are, just think about the kind of stuff that has been published (seriously...) and then think that everyone had to start somewhere.

I Wasn't Expecting That by notalone91 reviews
The Many-Faced God is as fair as possible when it comes to love. On a person's twenty-first Nameday, their soulmate is bound to them by a mark on their body with the first sentence they'll ever speak to their love. There's no rhyme or reason. If it were, everyone would have a match; everyone's soulmate would make sense. When Tyrion Lannister gets his, will it work out?

Legend of the Wolf Child by BittyBlueEyes reviews
The Doctor is alone after the Time War and believes he should be. A group of villagers insist otherwise, claiming that there is one he is destined to be with. The Doctor has never believed in prophecy, but there's too much coincidence surrounding the words 'Bad Wolf' to deny that something is at work.

Mansfield Park 'The Crawfords' redemption' by LopendVuur reviews
I always liked this book, but somehow felt Mary and Henry Crawford were treated unfairly by Jane Austen because they were not stuffy and boring and dependable, like Edmund and Fanny herself, but witty and passionate and likeable. I always felt they would not react in the way they did in the book, but rise to the challenge. So here's what they'd do in my view.
