Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.

I'm twenty-two, female, a barista and a student at OSU. I major in Geography and International Studies, and this (2009) is my fourth and final year. Once I graduate, I hope to teach- both high school and college, and also do research about the geospatial causes of poverty and inequality. My region of choice is Subsaharan Africa, and I'm hoping to someday learn Zulu, an incredibly beautiful language.

I've followed the HP series devotedly (the books, not the movies!) since the first one came out and though I don't call myself obsessed like some fans can become, I adore reading and writing fanfics and I enjoy rereading the books too in order to relax. They're a tonic for my nerves on the worst of days.

On the side I play soccer, swim, and work out often. I also attempt to paint watercolors (and usually fail :-) and keep in touch with a few close friends and my huge, crazy family. I have a dalmatian and a black cat (though one stays with a friend currently) and a red-purple beta fish aptly named Spaz my little sister got me for my birthday. I turn my hand occasionally to sewing my own clothes, writing poetry, and I love to master different culture's recipes and to cook for friends. My current phase? Sushi and Indian. I've got authentic Mexican pretty much down pat, alongside Mediterranean, which comes from my heritage: Bulgarian mother, Irish-Scotch-Dutch-English father. I'm happy to be a mutt :-)

I appreciate reviews and will attempt to respond to all as individually as I can. I'd also love the chance to help edit anyone else's work if they're willing- just let me know.
