About Me: I love The Secret Garden and since it's now in the public domain, I thought I'd write a sequel. Please consider joining my updates list on The Secret Garden Fanfiction Society on Yahoo groups. Thanks for reading and reviewing!

I am totally loving The Walking Dead and Daryl's guns! (His arms, baby! Now that man's sex on legs.)

I was super busy in November with a new original novel called Beacon (it's on FictionPress under Mena Dando if you're interested.) It's a ghost story/mystery set at a lighthouse.

A Chance to Grow FINALLY UPDATED! Yeah, baby! I plotted out the final chapters and am working on Chapter Twenty now. Once it's complete I will thoroughly edit it and add scenes and I'm thinking about a bonus chapter.

I'm thinking about writing more Beth/Rick and maybe a Beth/Daryl.

Reviews are always appreciated and lift my spirits tremendously. It's something to brighten my day so if you can, please give a little review:) Thank you for sticking with me!
