Author has written 10 stories for Harry Potter.

11/7/13

I lift my head up once again to point out what everyone already knows: it's been a while since I updated. Those of you who have been following along at home will note that my sudden disappearance coincided with my becoming a mother. That might really be all you need to know. The way I use my time has changed dramatically. I now spend less time writing and much, much more time playing catch and going to the park and struggling through third grade math. (Math is not my forte, so this is quite the struggle for me.) I miss writing like I used to, but I also love being a mother. It's what I've always wanted to be.

Despite all appearances to the contrary, I haven't abandoned the NfA universe. The stories still have a special place in my heart, and I have no doubt that one day my mind will wander back to them, and my fingers will itch to type the way they used to, but for now, my priorities have shifted away from creative writing. I still love all the feedback, the private messages, the encouragement I receive, and I thank you all for that. More than I could ever possibly say.
