Author has written 8 stories for Vampire Diaries.

I am in my 30s and live in Tampa, FL. I always wanted to write fiction growing up, so maybe I am returning to that in trying my hand at fan fiction - or maybe I am practicing for a future novel (as if I have that kind of time).

Obviously I am a fan of (obsessed with?) The Vampire Diaries and Damon Salvatore.

Update as of March 2013: Work and other things are (still) cutting into my fanfiction time right now, but my stories are still very much active in my imagination. Hopefully that will translate to actual updates sometime very soon. . . .
