Author has written 4 stories for Little Women, and North and South.

I stay at home with one rambunctious, sweet and beautiful little girl and write when she gives me a moment to breath (i.e. nap time!!)

Always having a great love for the classics growing up, I would often find myself changing small points within them and imagining where that would take my most beloved characters. What a joy it has been to discover this board and find a community of like-minded people. I have always loved Little Women and Jane Eyre but am new to reading and writing fanfic. I thank all of you for giving me the inspiration to write, I am starting to love it!

My newfound obsession in North & South. I happened upon the BBC series on Netflix, have since read the book several times over and purchased the DVD (and discovered that a lot is cut out of the Netflix version!)

I am working on attempting to publish a Pride and Prejudice novel that is tentatively titled 'Mr. Darcy's Mask.

If you like what you read in my stories or elsewhere, please consider leaving a review. All of these authors are working this in in their spare time and would love to get your input!
