Author has written 9 stories for Gorillaz, Rocky Horror, This Is England, Skins, Harry Potter, and Greek Mythology.

I'm Sara (pronounced like Sarah, but don't dare ever spell it that way). I'm 19, and yes, that's me in the picture looking like a drunken fool. I'm currently at university in Glasgow, which has its moments, and I'm an Edinburgh native. My mind recently seems to over-fixate on situations, pairings, songs, people and places. I'm a bit of a crazy cat-woman, and one of the best things on Earth has to be the colour of Robin's eggs. I like My Chemical Romance, Patrick Wolf, Kate Bush, The Smiths, Florence The Machine and David Bowie... oh, you don't want the full list, do you?


Read me Wuthering Heights and I'm yours forever.


So, yeah. I'd like to thank everybody who's read, fave'd, and reviewed my stuff so far, but especially swan-scones, my cyber/ear/nose/soul sister. She's truly just too amazing. All of the encouragement and support she's given me has helped more than I can actually say - so the only thing to say, I guess, is thank you. And, since now you know about her, go and check out her stuff. Because believe me, I've yet to find anything that comes close to how beautiful it is.
