Author has written 6 stories for Love Hina, Rurouni Kenshin, Braveheart, Ever After, Tristan + Isolde, and Pride and Prejudice.

A little bit about me I love history, languages, and art. In stories involving historic settings, I strive to be as accurate with details as possible. I wish to improve my creative writing skills especially concerning tenses, plot development, and characterization, because someday I would love to publish a historical fiction novel (my pipe dream). I enjoy stories that are descriptively written and deal with characters and relationships. I LOVE reading, it is an escape from reality for me. I am a huge sucker for a great romance story, especially in historic settings.

I have an ecclectic music taste. Some of my favorite artists include Green Day, Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, and Dropkick Murphys.

Some of my favorite movies include Ever After, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Hunger Games, Gladiator, The Princess Bride, and Tangled.

I like many TV shows: Once Upon a Time, The Vampire Diaries, Reign, BBC's Merlin, BBC's Robin Hood, Downton Abbey, Outlander, and Game of Thrones.

My list of favorite books could go on for miles, but some of my top faves are: Harry Potter, Pride & Prejudice, The Other Boleyn Girl, Jane Eyre, The Hunger Games trilogy (Catching Fire is my fave), The Fault in Our Stars, and anything by Philippa Gregory.


I am also on FictionPress under the Penname Lady Marian, where all my original work will be.


Fanfiction Updates: (as of 4/24/15)

(1.) My one and only Ever After fanfic, The Privilege of Love: Chapter 16 has just been added. Working on the next chapter. Also going through all previous chapters for editing. Making them read more fluidly and filling in some gaps of detail and plot.


I have a crazy hours job, so finding time to write is not as easy, so sorry if it takes a very long time for me to update!

I have recieved quite a few e-mails asking me if I'm still here and if I'm ever going to update my stories-- yes, I will (My Ever After fic has priority). I'm sorry it always takes a long time to update new chapters to this story. I still like this story and it is not over yet! I apologize again and please hang in there!


Thank you to everyone who has reviewed, favorited, and followed my stories! Your support makes me smile when I read your reviews and gives me encouragement. Merci beaucoup!!
