Author has written 7 stories for Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, Lupin III, and Kyo kara Maoh!/今日からマ王!.

Hey folks, I'm taking a bit of a hiatus to work on some original fiction. But don't worry; I doubt I'll be able to stay away for long. XD

As a full-time mom, part-time worker, and part-time writer, fan fiction is a getaway, a chance to think and dream and speculate, and practice for a future in which I might be one of the lucky ones to eventually see my writing in print at your local bookstore. Until that day, I play with other's worlds and characters, twisting and turning them every which way to see how they'll react.

I like action, I like YAOI, and last but not least, plot. I am obsessed with trying to keep my stories in-character, which is difficult when you want two characters to bang, let me tell you. I make no excuses for subject matter, grammatical faux pas, or overuse of the words 'suddenly', 'quickly' and '_-haired-boy'. If I ever get an editor, these things will be his problems. I also try my best to catch any mistakes, but some always slip through the cracks. I hope you'll forgive me for them.

And I'm sorry if I don't respond to reviews very often, but know that every positive comment I receive is quietly gushed over and does much in supporting my continuous efforts to write. Thank you all very much for taking interest in my stories. I hope they provide for you some enjoyment.

Here is an update/breakdown on my current stories:

Kyou Kara Maou:

Trial of Fire - Abandoned for now. Sorry for those who have been waiting for the next chapter of this. Ever since the fansubs started coming few and far between I sort of lost steam for the story. I hope to buy KKM on DVD one of these days to perk my creative juices back up.

One Piece:

Loyalties - Complete (check out drakyrna's fanart for it!)

Iron Will - Abandoned, for now. (Meanwhile, check out Cronopio's fanart for it! )

Final Betrayal: Now Complete!

Away Without Leave: Ongoing
