Author has written 41 stories for Ballykissangel, and Harry Potter.

Since I see some people have checked on my profile page, I supposed I should actually put something on it.

I'm a stay-at-home mum of two children and I'm actually much too old to be doing stuff like this. I spend most of my kid-free time doing real-life editing and translations (German-English) as well as doing beta reading and writing my own fan fics. I've also tried to write some original stuff, but somehow that never gets finished. Know the feeling? I also do fic intake on FictionAlley. (Some of you may recognize my name if I've had to ding you for SPaG!)

I used to be obsessed with Ballykissangel, but now I've set sail on the SSHG ship and I have no intention of disembarking any time soon. I still maintain the largest and best BallyK fan fic archive right here. (Shameless plug.)

I have a Master's degree in Applied Linguistics (TESOL) and a B.A. in Linguistics, and I'm just telling you that to intimidate you. All that really means is that I used to know a gerund from a participle at one time, but that was years ago.

I hope you have fun reading some of my stuff, since I had fun writing it!

Update 30 March 2011: I had been trying to update Never Give Up for several days, but kept getting that error that so many others were getting. Here is the solution posted on the forum:

If you are just trying to add a chapter you can get around the error message. When you get the error message go to the address bar and where it says property change it to content. example below.

fanfiction.net/story/story_edit_property.php? - error message

fanfiction.net/story/story_edit_content.php? - you can add chapters

I hope this helps everyone until they get this problem fixed.

~SAM~

And now I have been able to update. :D
