Author has written 10 stories for Harry Potter.

So, there's not too much to say about me. I love J.K. Rowling. She's a fantastic writer with a wonderful imagination. The only book I'd say I love as much as the Harry Potter series is Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss (which I heartily recommend to anyone who liked Harry Potter. It's not really at all like it, but if you like fantasy, I would be surprised if you didn't enjoy Rothfuss. Fair warning, though. Name of the Wind is part of a trilogy, and the second book isn't due out until March, 2011.).

In terms of stories, I'm obviously a sucker for Lily and James and any stories playing with the idea of how much things would change (or stay the same) if people had been sorted into different houses.

I've put IF on hiatus. I thought about deleting it entirely and just pretending I never started it, but I might want to finish it someday. For now, it's too much of a headache to try to write an altered version of the books without boring myself to death by making it identical or pissing people off by having too much OC stuff. So I'm just ignoring it for the time being. Sincerest apologies to anyone who was reading and enjoying it.

I've recently started writing a Draco/Hermione fic (Faultless), which is weird because that wasn't historically a pairing a liked. But I always enjoyed the redemption factor in Lily/James fics (obviously, since I make him an ass in Through No Fault of Her Own and Among Her Least Favorite People), and Draco is tailor made for that sort of story. Anyway, if you don't read that pairing, I'd be super excited if you gave it a chance and let me know what you thought of his character development.

You Don't Say by UndercoverFabala reviews
Lily genuinely liked James Potter. He was handsome enough to make any girl swoon, but he was also funny, clever, and secretly kind. Unfortunately, he could also be rude, thoughtless, spoiled, and cruel. Finding the balance was the tricky part. Author note: James is a jerk. Please don't be surprised.

Our Little Secret by Kerichi reviews
It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.

Waste My Time by MourningBlade reviews
Lily Evans hates James Potter, and Potter is none too fond of Evans. But when Lily does the unexpected...James falls for her. Literally.

Variations On A Theme reviews
A/U - Lily Evans only has one year left at Hogwarts. All she has to do is survive sharing head duties with James Potter, who has never been anything but a bully to her. Oh, and the budding war on muggleborns. She should probably try to make it through that as well.

Faultless reviews
When Hermione embarks on a path of revenge against Ron, she doesn't expect it to give her anything but the secure knowledge that Ron had suffered some consequences for his behavior, even if he never found out. She could never have foreseen that Draco Malfoy would be exactly what she needed. But then, who knew he had a streak of such disarming sweetness, buried under all his spite.

Better Angels reviews
At 25, James Sirius Potter is a professional quidditch player and accomplished playboy. He can't complain about anything, except the one girl he's never been able to get out of his head. Does he have the patience to win her over? Sins of the Father sequel. Focuses on James and Hunter. No real Scorpius and Rose storyline.

What if Lily wasn't quite as perfect as everyone thought she was? And what if James had the opportunity to meet the real Lily Evans? Could he prove he really had matured? Would he still want her if she wasn't exactly what he had expected?

Sins of the Father reviews
Update error fixed! James meets his match in a Slytherin who doesn't think too much of him, and Rose decides that Scorpius may be a great deal more interesting than she ever gave him credit for. There is something about bad boys and bad girls, after all.

He watched her swallow and inhale slowly. "I think we should work on being friends," she said. James closed his eyes for a moment, before nodding with his forehead still against hers. "Just out of curiosity, do you usually kiss your friends like that?"

"Well that went –" she tried calling over her shoulder and heading toward her room. Only he caught her hand, pulled her around, pushed her back against the wall, and cut her off with a kiss. He expected a protest, but instead felt her respond immediately.

Through No Fault of Her Own reviews
He turned to Lily. "Dennison agrees that one girl asking one guy to a concert constitutes a date." "Does she also agree that one girl continuing to throw herself at one guy who has a girlfriend constitutes a slag?" Lily asked in a sugary voice.
