Just getting my feet wet in the writing pool after a 17-year hiatus.

I've dedicated the past 11 years of my life to the world of technical documentation and marketing materials. Well, until I was thanked with a pink slip, that is.

I discovered the world of fan fiction late in life, only around a year or so ago, and I haven't ventured outside the land of Twi-Fics.

I'm a sucker for lemony-sweet HEAs in my AH, but I do love me some Darkward when it's all about the vamps.

Hell, I'll try reading just about anything once as long as you can spell correctly, know how to use punctuation marks, and know the proper time to use affect vs. effect. Except slash. I don't like the slash.
