Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.

Oh, man. I'm such a geek. And I LOVE it.

Fanfiction is a way for me to embrace that beautiful, persistent, inherent dorkiness.

In love with Harry Potter and am quite sure I will never love any story as much as I adore this one. It is an enduring, childhood love, the ending of which I am not sure I will ever recover from, despite it being an inevitable part of life.

Words are a gift, and quite often I am blown away by them. I hope I will one day be able to convey that in my writing.

"Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they appear on the outside, inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds. Thousands, maybe." Neil Gaiman

Update- March 2014 'Courage Does Not Always Roar' my fic, is still currently being written. At the moment Chapter 11 is currently under development (and let me tell you, it's an important one!).

Sigh* Please be patient with me and my infrequent updates. I realise it's frustrating but I'm currently wrestling with a house, area and job move and it's eating all of my time! I won't abandon this fic and hope to have it completed in the next few months- I estimate that there's probably another 3-5 chapters to go. As ever, I am massively grateful for any feedback. Please message me if you have any suggestions :) xx
