Author has written 29 stories for Harry Potter, and Mary Poppins.

My dear readers, dear visitors of my site,

I apologize for being a very bad author lately. I have two jobs and am now also back at Uni to get my Master's degree so time, as you might imagine, is a bit scarce (and yes, there is a boyfriend in the picture who needs some attention as well). Nevertheless, I miss writing very much and so I will try to write as much as I can in the few hours a week that I can spare. Apart from that, I will try and clean up this account, meaning I will take down the stories that will never be finished and that I can't stand anymore and edit those that have been up here for a while. You might want to read some of my older stuff again.

I'm always happy to receive any kinds of PMs and I promise to reply to them as soon as I can!

Cheers,

Coffee on the patio

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

(Kipling, 'If')
