Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.

I've been reading fanfiction for a long long time. Going way back to when the best story around was nappa's septonic duelling. Methinks not many of you will remember that one though. So after 5 years of reading other peoples storeys I thought why not give it a go.

I’ve personally been amazed at just how well First Steps seems to have been received. When I started writing this it was just as something to pass time now though I am now beginning to really enjoying myself.

The only real regret I have is that I didn’t start writing fanfiction years ago. I would advise anyone who is thinking about it but unsure if they can to give it a go. I mean you can’t have a worse grasp of grammar then me. lol

Once again thanks all for reading.

Trivial point

The coat of arms/crest used for the Potter’s in my story is in actual fact the coat of arms for city called Stoke-on-Trent in England.

I hate these things but this was just way too true.
