Hi, I'm D.B. Shaw, you can call me Brody or D.B. or whatever you like really it's not like I have any control over it.

My main fandom is Harry Potter in which I ship Draco/Hermione, Lucius/Narcissa, Aberforth/Goat and Dumbledore/Sherbert Lemons. Ok those last two might not have been serious... I can write for other ships if I want to, I don't have shippers goggles permanently attached to my face. I felt like Deathly Hallows was a bit of a let down and because HBP takes most of the characters out of Hogwarts my fics will either fall into the AU HBP timeline or post Hallows AU, possibly ignoring some of the underplayed deaths (Lupin/Tonks was appauling.)

I am a published poet (under a pseudonym) and soon to be published co-author and illustrator in the first of a series of children's books. These are aimed at very young children, we've got a fairly small advance and it will probably be a limited print run but if the first run is successful then we will receieve an invitation to publish more. Again this will be published under a pseudonym and I won't be listing my titles in this space.

UPDATE: Our kids book has been withdrawn from it's former publisher because we were getting screwed over royally, so we're taking it elsewhere. It's probably going to take a while to get this sorted and I'm probably going to end up dropping my name from the project entirely as my co-author wants to put my real name on the cover and since I refuse to use my real name professionally I'm not happy.

Our Time? by stashthesocks reviews

A Change of Heart by AnneM.Oliver reviews
Draco Malfoy was tired of dating the same type of girl. Knowing he could get anyone he wanted, one day he saw Hermione Granger walking down the corridor of his office and he decided something... he decided he wanted her. He was up for the challenge and it would appear that so was she. All he had to do was buy her a book and all she had to do was change his heart.
