Author has written 9 stories for Once Upon a Time, Crimson Field, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Lord of the Rings.

You can find me on A03 under the pen-name Khiori where I post a few of my works that might not make it here.

About me

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Whether I've been any good or not it certainly up for debate, but I've dramatically improved over the last two years or so, mostly due to fanfic. Apart from writing, I love music (I play seven instruments), and languages. I'm only fluent in English, but I know a respectable amount of Spanish, having spent a few months in Mexico, and I can work my way around German, Swedish and Latin.

About my writing

I write to answer questions. Those questions might be about what would happen in a certain situation, what a character would do if presented with a particular problem, or they might be questions I try to answer for myself by exploring them through the lens of characters I love. My writing is driven by character, and I cannot write unless I have an understanding of the character and their motives. To me, exploring a character is even more interesting than exploring a story. For that reason, my characters tend to have a lot of problems to work through!

I do take writing requests, but only if it is something I am comfortable writing. If I were to try and write a story or a character that I didn't know well enough, or couldn't sympathise with, I would be doing a disservice to myself, the characters, and most importantly my readers. But I'm happy to listen to any requests for stories and give them a go, or any beta requests.

Thank you for reading my work, and to those of you who are kind enough to review, know that it means the world to me. I hope you enjoy my work!

"He'd only just gotten her home two years prior. She needed to relax, to settle... not bring back memories of hanging upon every glorious word of that wizard's tales or think of adventures!
