Author has written 20 stories for Gone with the Wind, Castle, and Gunsmoke.

My name is Lucy. You can find me on Twitter @EvitaScarlett14

I love to write and I love sharing my stories with the world and getting reactions from my readers; but with that said; I'd like to remind everyone of a saying that I learned when I was small. "If you don't have something nice to say, then don't say anything at all."

I love getting reviews; but there are some people out there who like to use the review box as a form of harassment and as a way to belittle a person's work. This is supposed to be for fun; it's a hobby, and it's free, so let's keep things enjoyable, okay? If you don't like a story, then simply stop reading it, no one is forcing you to continue. Now I'll get off of my soapbox.

I love Castle, Gunsmoke, Nashville and a ton of other shows. My favorite movie is Ever After; and if you've read any of my stories, you know I love music; all kinds of music. Some of my favorite books are Gone With the Wind; The Emancipator's Wife, and The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya-Sisterhood.

If I had to choose one piece of my writing that I'm most proud of, it would be a story I wrote in the Castle fandom and it's called Apologize...not that I'm not proud of all of my stories; I am, but Apologize holds a special place in my heart.

I send out a tweet anytime I update my stories; so if you're tired about missing alerts from the site; follow me on Twitter and you'll know as soon as a new chapter's been posted. Sometimes I even tweet little tidbits as I write ;) One last thing; at the moment I'm not taking any prompts for stories. I have several stories in the works and way too many ideas of my own. That could change one day in the future, but for now; my plate is full story wise :)

Decisions Made by LadyofDodge reviews
