Author has written 4 stories for Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy IX, and Lord of the Flies.

I enjoy writing in my spare time, if I manage to have any at all. I would like to publish a thing or two, preferably within my lifetime.

I've devoted my life to my two loves: my career and my husband. The former took up too much of my life for the longest time, and so I'd like to get back into my writing to have a little more balance.

I solemnly promise that I will never leave anything unfinished, as everything is always a work-in-progress.

Haven't finished my one semi-epic fic yet, and already I'm wanting to start on a new one (though it'll be the same fandom and same pairing). Should I start it anyway, or should I finish this one first? Let me know what you think!
