Author has written 9 stories for Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew.
Coming Soon: A new short story/one-shot with Misty and the gang! Stay tuned for Birthday Surprise!
I'm BACK to Red Rock Robbery! We've decided since we're both full-time college students with summer jobs that Sassyk100 will still consult with me about the plot and ideas, but I'll be posting updates without her written edits in order to keep the story rolling.
Coming Soon: Upper Hand! My main focus right now is RRR, but UH is next! I have not been able to recover the old files, but I will be looking at what is still there and writing more from there. Hopefully posts will come soon!

Stories on Inkitt are considered for publication after enough data has been collected. I'd truly appreciate anyone willing to take a few moments and visit the story there too!!
And lastly, but certainly not least: Goodreads!
Many of my stories cross over and are on multiple sites. If you liked something here, check it out on the other site and help the story out there! :-)
A MESSAGE TO READERS:
What you call being 'too lazy to review' is what we call 'a flame to the pages' as the writers. That one minute or two that you felt 'too lazy' to review is another minute of creeping discouragement that all writers feel as they begin to think...
"Why am I even here…?"
"What's even the point of continuing?"
"My skills must be terrible…"
"No one cares for my story…"
"I'll never be a good writer..."
These are only a few thoughts that go through every writer's head- that go through MY head- when we put out a chapter/story with all our heart and soul within, and we sit there…and sit…and wait…and not a single person says even a word.
If you're not a writer, you have NO IDEA how much that hurts…
If you ARE a writer, then I'm sure you know just how great it feels when someone is kind enough to leave a heartwarming and encouraging review, and you read it, smiling while thinking…'Wow…I did it…'
So, why not give fellow writers the same luxury here?
Too many times I've seen epic and utterly beautiful works of literary art fall to pieces before finally being abandoned due to the terrible discouragement that the lack of reviews can cause.
Sometimes, it is so severe that the very writer himself decides to quit, denying the world his skills of writing that I'm quite sure others would have deeply enjoyed.
Just one minute, that's all it takes. Just a few gentle taps of the fingers on your keyboard, a few seconds or so of your time, and your words can SAVE a writer from a dark demise.
Do me a favor: Go find a story, ANY story, anywhere here on Fanfiction, and see if you can help it. If it has very little/no reviews at all, just check it out, and say whatever comes to mind.
And enjoy the thought in mind that you could have just SAVED that story, with just a few taps of the keyboard.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Age: Old enough.
Home: America, the beautiful...or what it used to be, what it stands for.

My Fandoms: ND and the HB, of course! Maybe one day I'll stretch out?
Genres Typically Used: Drama, Romance, Mystery, Adventure, and I'm beginning to play around with Suspence a little bit too (not neccessarily in that order)
Ratings: K, K plus, occasionally T. It'll never go higher, that's just me...
Fav. T.V. Shows: Once Upon a Time is AH-MAZING!I am also addicted to Castle, thanks to sassyk100!! Of course, we must mention Sherlock and Doctor Who. I also enjoyed shows like Victorious and Hannah Montana. I LOVE MacGyver and the old X-Files and old cartoons like The Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom, CatDog, Strawberry Shortcake (original and the first remake wasn't too horrid), Doug, and Teen Titans (the old ones, not the new ones) and Scooby Doo, etc. I like to watch the good shows that they used to play on T.V. I feel for the kids who grow up with...Ant Farm? Seriously dude? What happened to Even Stevens and Kim Possible, Red Skelton and The Dick Van Dyke Show and stuff like that???
Fav. Movies: Huh, funny. Do you really want the list? Okay...MALEFICENT! The Princess Bride, Ladyhawke, Willow, Signs, Lady in the Water (pretty much ANYTHING by M. Night), Pride and Prejuidce, Sense and Sensibilaty, The Blues Brothers (both of them), Anastasia, Ratatouie (hope I spelled that right...), Enchanted, QUEST FOR CAMELOT!!!!, The First Knight, The Lake House, The Magical Legend of the Lepreacauns (sp?), any Disney Princess movie, TinkerBell, and Barbie Princess movies (Yes), um...should I go on? I'm really getting into all the new superhero movies. The X-Men movies. LOTR, of course and the Hobbit movies. (I can't believe they're coming to an end!!) The Die Hard series is classic, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies were really good, and who doesn't love Christmas movies?! The Iron Giant, the Italian Job, and so so so many more!!
Fav. Books: Right, like I'm actually gonna pick a fav.
Okay, so I do have one from my top pick list, and it's only available as an e-book. It used to be called The Singing Sword, but the name has officially been chanced to New Birth. It's Book One of The Saga of the Singing Sword Brigade. Please help support the indie author! I swear you'll not regret it! Book Two is titled Into the Gloom! Book Three is The Trumpets of Doom, and the fourth one is on it's way!! Hoorah!
Other of my favorites include: Currently reading Boundaries. Throne of Glass was excellent. I've been hooked into the Maximum Ride books, so I can't wait to see where that goes. I LOVED the Lost Voices trilogy. I enjoyed the Ruby Red series, The Selection series, The Merchant's Daughter, The Fairest Beauty, The Healer's Apprentice, Princess of the Midnight Ball, Princess of Glass, Princess of the Silver Woods, Pride and Prejudice (who would have guessed); Little Women; the Alex Rider series; anything by Margaret Peterson Haddix--such as the Shadow Children Series, the Missing Series, Just Ella, Turnabout, Double Identity, etc--Shannon Hale--like The Books of Bayern (the Goose Girl, Enna, River Secrets, and Forest Born), Austenland, and Palace of Stone--Terri Blackstock--like her Restoration Series!!!!!!!!

Odds and Ends:
I love to cook and try out new dishes. I've got some pretty good family recipes if I may say so myself, so shoot me a pm and we can swap recipes!
My 4 closest friends have never met each other and they each live at least 6 hours apart from each other. Three of them have the same first initial. Two of them have the same middle name and birth month (5 days apart!). Two of them are on Fanfiction and Fictionpress. One of them lives in another country.
I'm constantly bugged my story plots running through my mind. Oh, but my dad got me a cool green journal that I write them down in, when I bother to remember.
My favorite color is GREEN!! Blue runs in close second, but it depends on the shade. Oh, I love colors! It's so hard to choose favorites...except for greeeeeeeeennnnnnnnn! I love mixing colors, like Indigo and Blue Violet! That's a pretty color! I love to color in coloring books full of princesses and fairies and Barbies. (Yes, I am in college and I still color little girl coloring books. Get over it. ;-))
Bedtime: Usually by ten if I can help it. I won't stay up past twelve unless the sky is falling. I just won't.
Most Missed Memory: MAC AND CHEESE WITH KASI!!!!!!
First Thought Waking Up: Who's shinning that light in my eyes? Ohhhh, where did the sweet night go...?
Goal For This Year: Post the next chapter of Red Rock Robbery...fingers crossed!
Fears: Snakes, spiders (have you SEEN the movie Aracnaphobia?????), mice, creepy crawlies in the night!!!! Public speaking, for sure, anything to do with many people really.
Longest Relationship: Okay, here's a shocker: never been in a romantic relationship...ever...
Nickname: I have multiple, and I still instinctively reply to all of them:
Corky -by my Aunt V. (thus the Corkybookworm ;-D)
Coya -by my Aunt T.
Coodie Coo -by my Gma N. and Gpa T.
Missy Lie Loo/ Sissy Lie Loo/Missy Loo -by my mom
Sissy or Sis -by my siblings
