Author has written 73 stories for Supernatural, Criminal Minds, Watership Down, Harry Potter, and Hunger Games.
I am an Early Childhood Educator currently in between jobs right now and trying to remain sane while writing fanfiction.
I have a pink Siamese beta fish named Norbert and a yellow budgerigar named Oscar.
My sister, BerserkerHellHound, is also on this site and is my unofficial Beta Reader and editor.
I love to read, watch television, walk/hike, cook, garden and listen to music. Some of my favourite authors are Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Patrick Rothfuss, John Saul, J.K. Rowling, John Grisham and Diana Gabaldon.
My favourite TV shows are Supernatural (of course), Dexter, Dr. Who, M*A*S*H, Criminal Minds, Ghost Adventures, American Horror Story, and The X-Files.
I like a wide range of music from Metallica to Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan and Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, Billy Talent and Led Zeppelin. I even like some rap and blues/jazz, etc. really I am not that picky when it comes to music- if it sounds good to me, whatever the genre, I'll listen to it.
