Author has written 6 stories for Maximum Ride, Mortal Instruments, Infernal Devices, Cassandra Clare, and Selection Trilogy, Kiera Cass.

I have started to make trailers for Fanfictions other than my own. If you would like to request a trailer for your Fanfiction or a Fanfiction you have read you can click here to fill out the request form.

I'm a girl living in the lovely seaside city of Seattle, with no clear path or day that is entirely dizzying. I live for reading, writing, drawing, and dancing, as well as the creatures I'm told, are my family.

I'm a student, daughter, big sister, babysitter, library assistant, activist, artist, musician, optimist, awestruck, inspired, humanitarian, with a passion for animals and writing, who takes each day in strides, as I look at the future with urgency and terror.

My ambitions in life include my intended major in geoscience and having a career in seismology. With this, I hope to travel far and see the world.

Life After Clockwork Princess by TessaCollins reviews
My idea about what Jem and Tessa's life might be like together after the end of Clockwork Princess in modern day (well, 2008, but still...). These characters and the wonderful world they belong to are the work of Cassandra Clare and her incredible Infernal Devices series (I quote some of the themes in those books, you may notice). All credit to her for the characters and world.

Succumbing To You by caitlyn1225 reviews
An unusual start to romance between Jace and Clary. Clary moves in across the landing from Jace; evidently, he's a party boy and Clary is a hard worker. They immediately get off on the wrong foot and want nothing to do with each other, yet they must constantly compete for the better title. Meanwhile, Clary and Isabelle butt heads. Rated T/M for content/language. Read and enjoy. :)

Seventeen by caitlyn1225 reviews
Takes place in the year 2170, in a futuristic type dystopian short story, where genetic modification is expensive and only for the best of the best; and yet most people have it. But for Tessa Gray and William Herondale, they were the unfortunate ones. They disgusted people. James Carstairs received too much of it and became an outcast. Friendship and unusual romance. Enjoy. :)
