Author has written 38 stories for Immortals, Tamora Pierce, Protector of the Small Quartet, and Song of the Lioness.

I'm still figuring this writing thing out, and I suspect that's going to be my permanent condition.

At present, I'm writing for the Tamora Pierce fandom, and will be sticking mainly to the SotL and PotS quartets, as those are the only TP books I currently have access to. I have some ideas for her other books, but I would prefer to wait until I have those books at hand, so I can verify details, and get a more vivid and accurate sense of the characters.

If you read one of my stories, please consider leaving a review. Every piece of feedback and/or contsructive critisism helps me become a better writer. Furthermore, if you add me/my fics to your "author alerts" or "favourite stories" lists, consider telling me what you liked about my writing. I'm grateful when anyone "favourites" or even just reads my fics, but your opinions, verbalised in a written review, are valuable to me also.-* This is the case whether you liked my fic, or not (after all, there's always room for improvement). Thank you to those who leave reviews. To those who don't review: thank you for reading!

Feel free to email me if you have any questions about my work, or if you'd just like to strike up a correspondence.

-*Secretly, I'm just really greedy.
