Author has written 57 stories for True Blood, and Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire Mysteries.
Hello, I'm a teacher and love to write. I used to be reticent about sharing my creative pieces, but since I posted Back and Forth, most of my reviewers have bolstered my confidence as a writer. And I find that I love to hear what others have to say about my work. It makes me feel like I have a big ol' support system out in the cyber world. It's nice.
Also, I very much enjoy reading what others have had to add to the stories of my favorite characters.
I hope that y'all continue to enjoy reading my stories as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
I am part of Fangbangers Anonymous: The TB/SVM Writers Directory (fangbangersanonymous. wordpress. com) that features TB/SVM writers who write mostly or exclusively on WordPress and other independent websites. Visit the site to discover some other amazing writers that you won't always find on fanfiction.net.
Note: It is possible that my stories may disappear from this site at some point if those who run the site find that my content is too risque for their rating system. I understand that they might, though I hope that's not the care. I also have a WordPress site if something happens here. I am acutely aware that what one person may see as rated M, another might see as MA. And I respect the decisions of those that run this site. Meanwhile, I have taken steps to make sure that my stories aren't gone forever.
And to those that run FF.net -- if you are reading this, I hope that you know how much I appreciate this site regardless of whether I am not allowed to post my complete stories here. I would hope that anyone who disapproves of my content would simply choose not to read. It is easy enough to just close a page; however, that kind of logic is not always followed by witch-hunters whose sole purpose is to find a witch. If those in charge of FF.net are pressured to take my stuff down, then they too are being victimized in my opinion, and I will not deride them for that. Instead, I will simply provide my WordPress site as an alternative. And if I am removed, I will go back, gloss over the objectionable parts, and re-post here. The stories will lose something in that process, but I would never abandon my fans.

I ignore and generally delete these if they have even a tinge of negativity. I won't deal with negative comments offered anonymously. These are mean-spirited and cowardly.
Projects (as of June 2019)
I am currently working on--or planning to continue--several projects.
1. The Trunk Trilogy
Currently under production! One new chapter every week!
2. The Gift Horse Series
Beginning seven years after Dead Ever After, this series of one-shots explores Eric and Sookie's future.
I'm in the drafting stages of the next installment, but it might be a while before the next is ready.
3. Earned (the third part of the trilogy that includes Back and Forth and Come Back to Me)
Earned will be the final part of the B&F trilogy.
The story's premise: At the end of Come Back to Me, we left Eric and Sookie just married and content on the ætt land. Earned fast forwards to when Hunter is seventeen. The focus of the story will be on Hunter and Emma, just as much as Eric and Sookie. But many of the characters from the rest of the trilogy will appear as well. Will someone close to Hunter betray him? Can he save the girl he has loved since he was five years old? And will Eric and Sookie survive and protect their family as a new generation of enemies rises? You'll have to wait to see.

A Personal Note
In my earlier days writing fanfiction, I was much more prolific, but I've had to slow down due to illness (fibromyalgia). When I am enduring a rough patch, I cannot devote energy to writing. And this may cause me to lose focus or steam on a particular story.
That said, though some of my stories are on long hiatuses, I haven't abandoned anything. Just check to see the last date that I posted on something--even if it's not on what you're reading. As long as that has happened within the last couple of months, you know that I'm active, even if a bit slow. And feel free to PM me if you want to know if/when a story will be returning. If I know, I'll tell you.
I have help from two wonderful women!
Kleannhouse--who is the best beta I could imagine and an amazing friend.
Sephrenia--who makes most of the visuals that accompany my word. Please see my blog for lots more! Google: californiakat1564 and wordpress to find me.
