Author has written 7 stories for Naruto.

Name: Wouldn't You Like to Know

Age: Older than Shizune and younger than Kishimoto

Gender: Female

Status: Taken and if my real life was anything like the Narutoverse Sakura would be with Shikamaru ;)

Favorite Manga: Naruto (obviously), InuYasha, Clannad, and Shinobi Life

Favorite Anime: Naruto (again), InuYasha, Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon (can you guess my age yet?), Tokko, Yu Yu Hakusho, Macross Plus (the movie), & Gundam 00

Favorite Pairs: NaruSaku, KibaHina, ShikaTema, InuKago, Kagetora/Beni, Minato/Kushina

Possible Pairs: NejiTen, InoChoji, InoanyonebutSasuke/Naruto, Iruka and Ayame, & GaaHina

I've started liking the idea of ShinoTen due to a fanfic by Persephonae. It's worth checking out.

Things I do other than read manga and fanfics: Being a mom, cooking Japanese food and study Japanese garden design. I also spend more time than I should checking out Deviant Art and listening to music on JPopAsia. I've also been doing a little yoga and Kenpo lately. The Kenpo actually has helped me with some story ideas. We'll see if I get a chance to use these ideas in future fight scenes. I also work at a flower shop. For those of you that think I would be able to write at least a oneshot for Ino, trust me, working at a flower shop is not that interesting.

Other Interesting Facts:
We just had another baby, so updates are on hold until further notice, but I'm still around.

I know a real life Naruto, but he's 6 and has brown hair and brown eyes; but he loves orange and acts just like him. Actually, if you want a snapshot of my life, just look at the opening art for chapter 503. That would be a typical morning. *hangs head and sighs*

I also write as a method of reflection and stress release. Lucky you, the more stress I release, the more you get to read ;D

I've lived near or in the mountains all of my life and I love the outdoors. I've done a little traveling and I've been to Japan twice now and I just love it. My "Shikamaru" is from there, so manga is one of the things that we have in common. It's ironic that he loves American culture and I love Japanese culture.

Here is a little web sight that a fellow fanfic writer, Inuyashalover90, put up that you might want to check out. It is a collection of fanfic writers and their works at The Authors.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that read or favorited my fanfics. I wrote them for the love of writing and because Kishimoto wasn't moving fast enough for my taste. I always enjoy hearing what you think about the stories as long as the reviews are constructive and not flaming.

Fun facts from the most recent trip to Japan:

We had ramen at Arocku Ramen. My other half would have eaten there every day if I had let him. Nothing beats handmade noodles.

I did a double take on the subway when a business man with a Sasuke Uchiha haircut walked past. I knew they had some crazy hair styles, but I was not expecting someone with that length of hair to be able to have it stand straight out in back like that. Actually, if more guys died their hair blond, there would have been a lot of Naruto look-a-likes too. Scary.

I decided that there is no way to choose between anko and mitarashi dango when it is homemade. So yummy!

We spent a lot of time shopping in Totsuka (yep, same word as Itachi's sword). As Americans we tend to put a little more significance in those names that show up in anime, but really, most of them are very common in Japan.

If you pay attention to the meanings to all the names in anime, you can actually carry on a decent conversation in Japanese. For example, when helping my mom-in-law cook, I had to use abura (oil) all the time (as in Aburame Shino). I had to buy an uchiha (fan) for my son. It was also ichigo (strawberry) season, those of you who read Bleach will know that one.

In the Works

Sakura's Day Off: possible one shot detailing a day off for Uzumaki Sakura and her very active family.

Collection of Oneshots related to In My Father's Shoes: Still needs an actual title, but this is where all my little spin-off ideas will go when I think of a funny story using the canon and OC's from In My Father's Shoes. It will depend on how inspiration strikes me or how frustrated I am with canon material on how many mini-stories this will have.

Suna Rose: a Shika/Tema fic based on Sting's 'Desert Rose' of the time when they finally admit to each other that there is more than just a working relationship between them. Sorry for the delay, but like everyone else here that ends up with any length of time between posting chapters, life just got in the way.

News Flash as of May 2011: Not that any of you really read this, but in case you're wondering where I've been for the past two months, morning sickness has stolen my creativity for the moment. Hopefully I'll be back up and writing in a couple months or so.

Completed (done, finito, no more)

In My Father's Shoes: Team 7's trials as they deal with being adults. Naruto and Sakura are expecting their first child, but life and war gets in the way. Sasuke is home in Konoha, but finds everyone moved on without him and he's forced to deal with a lot of crap in order to learn how to grow up and move on with life. Also includes other pairs: ShikaTema, KibaHina, InoOC.The title refers to more than one father and it's up to us if we follow in our "Father's Shoes" or not. In My Brother's Shoes: (a working title.) Sasuke has a lot to deal with and it always comes back to stuff his brother left undone. Idea discontinued due to most of it ending up in Father's Shoes.

ANBU Gaiden: Prequel to In My Father's Shoes and sequel to Sweet Emotion. Naruto and Sakura join ANBU. They are still dating in secret mostly to keep the enemy or the Hokage from having any leverage.This is a story about not only being in ANBU, but the trials that Naruto and Sakura go through as a young adults. What trials await them? Will they ever bring Sasuke home? What kind of Hokage does Danzo make? Set four years after Manga 460.

Five First Dates: A Naruto Bedtime Story-FYI this got 2nd place for the Heaven & Earth "5" contest. This one is just for fun and isn't connected to the others.

Sweet Emotion: Set after Sanbi arc in the Anime. This is a first kiss kind of story, started out as just for fun and ended up starting a trilogy.

My Heart, Which I Gave to You: Songfic based on 'Haru yo, koi' by Yumi Matsutoya sung by Aiko http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_n3grSQ2uz8&feature=related. Not my usual happiness, but there is still a chance that Naruto will end bitter sweet and I just had to get this out of my head.

A Little Light Training: Just a little drabble I had intended to post for Naruto's Birthday, but I just couldn't get around to it. You'll have to read it to figure out what it's about. Based on my own experiences.

So Many Ideas, so little time. Ja Na.

Gossip by Miss Soupy reviews
oneshot, NaruSaku. As it turns out, gossip has two faces. On one hand, it kept them from having to tell their story over and over until everyone finally knew that yes, they were together. The downside, though, is that people are talking about you.
