I like stories that end Happily-Ever-After. I don't want to read tragic endings. Why would I want to be depressed?
It is with a heavy heart that I have removed all 24 of my fanfiction stories from both fanfiction and The Writer's Coffee Shop Library.
As an author, I feel secure (or at least I used to) knowing my characters belong to me after all the work I put into them. Fanfiction never bothered me in the past because fanfiction authors did not make money from their work.
That is no longer the case.
As an author I will not stand idly by and let this happen. As of today. All my stories are gone. I apologize to those who love them, but I can no longer support such a practice. I will no longer write or post fanfiction. I will only write my own original works.
If you want someone to blame? I don't know where to point you. It seemed to start with the 50 Shades phenomenon and has worsened. Now Amazon has just made it a million times worse. I will not support the ruination of an author's work for pay.
Thank you all for your support with my stories. If you want to see my original works - check out

Again, I apologize for doing this, but this recent movement has made it impossible for me to support fanfiction anymore.
Fare thee well
