A sister - to a nice guy who deserves someone his equal.

A daughter - to the hardest working people.

I am also...

a graduate - Computer Engineering if you are interested.

a veteran - of life for nearly four decades. (Therefore too old to be using fan fiction for the fandoms I inhabit).

easily upset - by people who speak without thinking...be warned.

I write...

what I want to read.

as realistically as I can.

for a young adult audience. If that isn't you, you take responsibility for your own actions.

I want my stories to...

entertain.

amuse.

enlighten.

satisfy.

live.

BOOK RECOMMENDATION: "Marian" by Judith Grimshaw (available for download) - she's a friend and the plot looks great! Give it a go!

I have written nearly 40 stories for the Life With Derek fandom. A selection is published here. The rest have been retired and won't be coming back! SORRY!

Other Information:

Cover art is by SusanMarieS. (Many thanks!)

The Legacy has a trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9CoHq0MXEA (Thank you to Vicky for allowing me to persuade her to adapt her video to fit!). Please watch and review it. It is amazing!

Update: I am currently reviewing the content of some of my stories in order to put them into ebook form. I don't have the time or the inclination to do this for every story so you will find some of the less popular stories will disappear completely. Over time the successful stories will be re-edited and re-published on here. The editing will take the form of correction of mistakes where I spot them - please don't point them out I've been aware of most of them since day one! It will also include the removal of some of the author's notes.

I know this won't necessarily be a popular decision but it's the one I'm happy with. X
