Author has written 7 stories for Dragon Age.

I'm half asleep and updating my profile... this will end badly...

About me? I used to be an English and Social Studies teacher when California liked those, and I currently live in 1957 (which would be fine if I didn't have to clean the bathrooms - blech). Writing is a recently discovered thing, one I am really enjoying. It was ineveitable, as both my parents are writers, though no one you know unless you work in a school library. I also do sewing and other crafty things (see that avatar pic? Yeah, I made that).

Also, I LARP. In fact, if you are in the Los Angeles or OC area and just went "Oooh!" please check us out at:

All the pieces I have written so far are for the same version of Alistair and Elinora Cousland, and each story is building on my previous writings as well as the game. I tend to ignore and change bits of cannon at will for the sake of my story. I find it more fun that way.

Also, as of right now, I have not played and am not including anything from Awakenings. Handle it :).

If you want to read them all in the right order it goes like this:

"The Fever."

"One Night in Lothering"

"The Lotus" (which is my personal favorite)

"Requiem at Ostagar"

"Duty"

"Duty's Journey," the epic sequel to "Duty."

And now playing at a fanfiction.net near you, "Duty's Choice: The Bastards of Ferelden", the final part (I think) in the epic "Duty" saga... (did that sound pretenious enough?)!!!

Enjoy! Review! Encourage me to keep this up! (or not...)

One Night in Lothering reviews
A bit of screwball comedy, some romance and a hint of adventure as the attraction between Alistair and Elinora Cousland grows. Follows "The Fever" but no so you'd notice. I orginally rated it "M" but was advised that it shouldn't be. Sweet. Please R&R
