Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.
I am an American mother and grandmother who got introduced to Harry Potter when my sister-in-law gave the first book to my daughter, who wasn't old enough to read it at the time. I started off reading the book to her and have been hooked ever since. About three years ago my daughter introduced me to fan fiction and I have enjoyed reading that as well. I don't write lemon scenes and I haven't tried writing a battle scene yet. I have published one short one-shot and have a couple of other stories in the writting.
One of my pet peeves is stories that are started and then just abandoned when they get interseting or get you intereseted. My goal is to never fall into that trap, I plan to only publish a story after it is finished. My other is using the wrong "version" of a word, such as their, they're, and there, and two, to, and too, etc. I reread my stories many times over trying to make sure I find any spelling or grammatical errors. I do not have a beta, but my sister, a retired school teacher, has been helping me with these things.
My Way - or - NO WAY!: 5/19/2013 - I appreciate the reviews I have received, both good and bad. I am sorry if some out there didn't like me calling Dumbledore Dumbles, but since it was a maurader I thought it was appropriate. As for making the story longer, I never intended to make it more than a one-shot, although if something comes to me I may add it. I really liked the final line "Harry smiled." I kinda thought that said it all. Thank you every one for reading my first attempt. I had intended My Way to be a one-shot, but I have had several requests to extend it, so I am thinking along those lines. I am really concentrating on Opinions... at the moment, so it may be a while in coming.
7/20/2014 - HELP! I have been trying to upload a new chapter, and for some reason the site won't let me. Any ideas out there how to get it to work - other than waiting and trying again tomorrow? I will do that if noone can give me any other ideas.
11/8/2014 - I must apologize! My PC finally gave up the ghost and I lost everything. I am now trying to learn to work on a laptop. But I am also having to reconstruct everything I already had done. I have the next few chapters almost finished, just putting finishing touches on them. So please bear with me.
