Author has written 19 stories for Life With Derek.
A mum - to two beautiful boys.
A wife - to a very supportive husband.
A sister - to a nice guy who deserves someone his equal.
A daughter - to the hardest working people.
I am also...
a librarian - let's face it, what else is there in life?
a graduate - Computer Engineering if you are interested.
a veteran - of life for four (ahem) decades. (Therefore too old to be using fan fiction for the fandoms I inhabit).
easily upset - by people who speak without thinking...be warned.
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...
BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS: (One of the benefits of being a school librarian!)
"Marian" by Judith Grimshaw (available for download) - she's a friend and the plot looks great! Give it a go! (There are sequels).
"A Company of Ghosts" by Berlie Doherty - If you were stranded on a haunted island - alone - what would you do every day? What would you think about?
"Rooftoppers" by Katherine Rundell - Above the roof tops of Paris there is a secret world.
Anything illustrated by Chris Riddell...but, especially:
"Fortunately, the Milk" (perhaps for younger readers but who cares?)
"Goth Girl" (Likewise)
"The Graveyard Book" (Chris Riddell editions!)
"The Sleeper and the Spindle" - a very anti-pink version of Sleeping Beauty.
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!
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: Another year, where did it go?
School runs, library stuff and just being a mum.
I try every day to write. If anything materialises, you'll be the first to know! X
