Author has written 26 stories for Ashes to Ashes, Casualty, Waterloo Road, Sound of Music, and Downton Abbey.

Twenty. Fangirl. University student. I like to write.


Updates:

The final chapters of Suave and Sensibility are still under work. They will be written though, and they will be posted. It's just a matter of time, thank you for sticking with me.

Chapter 5 of Thy Kingdom Come is close to being posted, it just needs reading through again. Chapter 6 is currently being written too. I know where I want to go with this story, and I have an idea of how to get there, but it's not completely mapped out.

In the third episode of an eight part series conflicts are introduced, and arcs begin. So this is a bit of a launch pad. Everybody is in it including a couple of my own additions. There's flapper-talk, a storm, too much sherry, a fire and a suspension. Some romance, because so much romance was lost and needs to be made up for. And hopefully, humor. Action is in italics.
