Author has written 17 stories for Final Fantasy VIII, and Kingdom Hearts.
15/10/04 Just a quick bio update to say that I'm back and writing after a long summer break, so I should be posting chapters fairly regularly.

I'm obsessed by Final Fantasy 8, as you can probably see from my fics. I especially love Squinoa fics. If you want to read a good Squinoa you should read Renegade Seraph, Dark Raion, Rinoa-of-the-Coven and Rinoa Heartilly-Leonhart's fics. If you like any Final Fantasy 8 story, you should definately read Ashbear's work.

The link in the homepage box is to my boyfriend's art page. Hopefully there'll be some art from my fics up there soon.

I would also like to say a big thanks to all those who have reviewed my stories.

ps. Please review my fics, it really means a lot.
