Author has written 7 stories for True Blood, Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire Mysteries, and Walking Dead.

It was the dead of winter here in Canada, and I was going completely stir crazy. It was months until the next Charlaine Harris book, and even longer until True Blood. Extreme boredom! While searching for spoilers I discovered fanfiction and this site, and I was HOOKED! Some of the writers on this site blow me away. I love how fanfic gives me more, but I also enjoy the community of writers, editors and readers, and love how we can share our enjoyment of Charlaine Harris' and Alan Ball's characters. As an aspiring novelist, I know how difficult it is to create an original universe and original, layered characters, with their virtues and flaws.

It's very easy to take someone else's fully-fleshed out characters and make them actors in your own story. You already know exactly how they will react, and how they will relate to one another. Pulling together the story and the characters, as an original writer, is a talent. And while I write here in fanfic, I do not forget that. And every day when I sit down at my computer to write my own work, I put my all into it, hoping that i'll come close, some day, to creating both characters and a universe that lift off the page and grab the reader.

Just a quick note about my story True Love. Despite the subject matter, this is not "real person" fanfic. Everyone in the story is as close to the book character as I could get within the AH scenario, "Allen" stepping in for QSA. And Eric is a typical AH Eric. I thought it would be fun to act out a fun "what if" fantasy on the set of our vampire show with the book characters as the actors. And it's a mystery. I hope you'll give it a shot.

I owe so much to my very talented Betas IWishIHadARiver and Northman Maille. They do so much more than edit for grammar, and work to cure me of my em-dash addiction. River excels at helping me to keep the characters true to themselves and finding continuity errors, and NM, beyond her critical skills, really gets my humour and isn't afraid to tell me when a word is decidedly unfunny, which is a gift for anyone attempting to write comedy. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I bow to your eagle eyes. Now keep writing you two! Why you spend your time on me i'll never know, although i'll always be grateful.

Writers love readers, and we also love reviews. It really helps to know what you think. We're always working on something, whether it be dialogue, or perhaps setting a realistic scene. When I get a review that mentions something i've worked really hard on, it means a lot, because i'm here to practice a skill as much as for my love of the source material. I'd love to know what you think - so don't hold back. It will only help me be a better writer.

And on that note, I've evolved a lot as a writer since I started doing this. I think i've found my voice and style and by pushing some of my boundaries have discovered where my writing comfort-levels lie. As such i've decided to delete "How to Bake Pecan Pie with your Vampire" and "How to Have Dungeon Sex with your Human." These stories were much more humour than lemon, but they just don't reflect me as a writer any longer. Thank you to everyone who read, and to those who reviewed and shared your thoughts with me.

Follow me on Twitter @cageyspice if you want to know how the writing is coming along. I'm discovering Twitter rocks for True Blood/SVM fans...the fandom and show updates, the spoilers, the pics...gotta love it!

BANNERS!

Yes, I now have banners, thanks to the enormously talented ReannaCullen. You seriously have to check these out...

Dead Rising: I couldn't possibly have found an image that would work for this fic, and Rea created one that is beyond perfect!

True Love: I joked to Rea that I was having trouble keeping my characters straight, so she made me this helpful guide. Check out this album!

And Time Again by sheba6086 reviews
Why did Eric allow his relationship with Sookie to develop at her pace, rather than simply take what he wanted? He could have. Was he looking to the future ... or bound by the past? This story takes place during Eric and Sookie's first meeting and will be a total of 4 chapters. As always, I thank Charlaine Harris for generously allowing others to play with her characters.
