Author has written 6 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Walking Dead.

The muse has been silent these last years, however, it may be starting to tickle and nudge at me again. I have a feeling it is going to be pushing me in a new direction as I've recently become obcessed with the character of Daryl Dixon on TWD. No surprise there are some similarities between him and Spike... :)

We will see what happens but I feel like writing again and it's been a long time since that's happened.

Hi! I've been writing for years, but have only recently discovered the world of Fan Fiction. This coincided with my discovery of BTVS. I was complaining about the lack of intelligent TV on the networks and my boyfriend, familiar with my vampire fascination, gave me all 7 seasons of Buffy on DVD. The relationship came to an end but the obsession with Buffy had been born!

I started out with a couple of short pieces, mainly Spuffy focused because come on - Spike is the quintessential bad boy - leather and poetry - it doesn't get much better than that.

Fanfic has been a great venue for me to keep writing when the novel I'm working on isn't really going anywhere! I play in Joss's world to keep the creative juices flowing and then go back to my non-fanfic stuff. So, not sure just how prolific I'll be, but I promise to either keep my fanfic pieces short or if they are heading in an "opus" like direction - to finish them!! Nothing worse than reading something and finding out it doesn't have an ending -happy or otherwise!

Anyway - I look forward to any feedback and any networking that can done through these communities. As always, the goal is to become a better writer and to have fun doing it! Thank you to my beta - Mabel Marsters who is helping me get there!! Now that I have a beta, there are no more excuses for typos and errors! :0) So for those of you who have read the stories as they are, my sincerest thanks for looking past the faults! :0)
