Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter.

I’m a scandinavian girl in her twenties, university student by day and dreamer by night.

I am very on-and-off in my writing. Sometimes I'm super inspired and write several stories at the same time, and sometimes I don't write anything for a year.

I've only written HP so far, and mostly Marauders' era - because it's heartwrenching/fascinating to write about the younger years of characters when you know what will happen to them later in life.

I’m always thankful for constructive criticism - from both reviewers and beta readers. I prefer when you are somewhat nice about it though. Getting reviews make my day, so don't be shy!

My stories vary quite a lot in theme and form. Some are just for fun (Take a walk in the snow, A little trip to Hogsmeade, Presents for puppies). Some are a bit angsty (Color Palette and work-in-progress September), and others pretty honest (My skin is your skin). I'm never entirely satisfied with my stories, and sometimes I update and rewrite them. Can't wait to do that to "My skin" and "Imagination"! Those are just hard to write.

Right now, I'm working on ...

PS: Tips on good Marauders' era, Wheel of Time or Enderverse (Enders Game/Shadow) stories? PM me :)

Remus Lupin's Guide to Successful Courting by Children of the Shadows reviews
Remus has lived for twenty five years now. Due to his incapability to emote or feel many complicated things at the same time, he has always maintained a straight face, his facial features sitting at an angle of approximately a hundred and seventy four point two d though he has practiced it many times before in front of the mirror, Remus has truly never smiled.
