Author has written 2 stories for Mass Effect.

Wrote her first fanfiction nearly fourty years ago, at the tender age of seven.

Has a terrible imagination when it comes to thinking up original universa and characters, so she’d rather write about others’ universa and characters instead.

Has tried her hands on some ‘art’ the past few years, mostly parody involving her Halo fandom, if interested to sample said 'art', plase see DA account over at http://skyward-dreamer.deviantart.com/

And lastly, but not leastly, she hopes that anything that goes up here on Fanfiction.net will be enjoyable enough to follow through to the end.
