Author has written 58 stories for Harry Potter, Fairy Tales, Sherlock Holmes, and Babylon 5.

If you’re a reader of fanfiction, which is all of us here, I imagine, please consider leaving a comment or review the next time you read a story you enjoy. I think we’ve all noticed the drop in feedback in the last few years. I imagine that many people are simply busy and in a hurry or don’t know what to say, but a comment doesn’t have to be complicated or witty, just sincere.

Offering feedback to your favourite authors is the best way to encourage them to continue providing you with enjoyment. Believe me, knowing that someone read what you wrote and enjoyed it can make all the difference in the world. Thank you.
