Author has written 20 stories for NCIS, Vampire Diaries, Once Upon a Time, Scarlet Pimpernel, Veronica Mars, Musketeers, and Man From U.N.C.L.E..

I realized when I took a good look at this profile that it's been almost three years since I updated. Which is kind of a long time.

I didn't stop writing fanfic because I stopped caring about the stories or the characters (although I will freely admit that both the shows I wrote for changed in ways that made it significantly harder to write about the pairings I loved). Mostly, I just got busy. Real life has a tendency to do that. But the stories were still there in the back of my head, and now I've got a bit of time and desire to start letting them back out.

I started out writing fanfic for NCIS, which was the result of a serious addiction to Mark Harmon and really the show in general. (Donald P. Bellisario is a genius. No question.) I still love NCIS, though I don't write much for it anymore. My favorite 'ship was Kate/Gibbs, and when Season 2 ended I lost a lot of my inspiration. I keep hoping that I'll regain it at some point, though.

I moved into writing for The Vampire Diaries, and stayed there for several years. I was (and am) a Delena fan all the way. I can honestly say that none of the other 'ships ever made much sense to me. But the past season wasn't nearly what I was expecting, and I've decided to take a break from that fandom for a while. Maybe I'll come back to it someday...who knows.

Right now I'm looking at Once Upon a Time (yes I ship Captain Swan, why do you even have to ask) and maybe a little Sherlock. I was considering a little Veronica Mars, but from the looks of things, I missed that boat a long time ago.

As far as personal information goes...well, that's a little different. I'm a closet romantic, which translates to cynicism in public and sighing over Heathcliff and Catherine in private. I have a thing for Byronic heroes. I am driven mad by copyediting errors and groan internally when I find them within my own work. And I write fanfic just for fun--not that I don't take the craftsmanship seriously, because good writing should always be a serious thing, but because what I write in my real life reminds me that sometimes you just need an outlet.

I also have a thing for the Pre-Raphaelites and Victorian themes in general--hence the picture. It's Dante Gabriel Rossetti's Lady Lilith, in case you were wondering.

At any rate, I hope you enjoy whatever I have to offer. Please read and review, but do try to be gentle. Every writer needs constructive criticism. (And we're all fragile little creatures deep down inside.)

Thanks!
