Author has written 8 stories for Downton Abbey, and Once Upon a Time.

Living with my insanity over Downton Abbey, Castle, Once Upon a Time, Miranda, Sherlock, Pirates of the Caribbean and Game of Thrones ;)

I've never thought myself to be a very creative person and I hesitated immensely about writing my own stories. I'm still not too happy with how they turned out. I'm pretty sure that I'm now far more obsessed than my sister, considering she (stupidly) refuses to read any of the AMAZING fanfic stories that I have read here. Seriously, you guys are awesome.

I'm 19 years old and a proud Kiwi. New Zealand is one of the coolest places in the world and don't ever mistake us for Australians. If you're Canadian and hate being called American, then you know how we feel :) The only thing wrong with New Zealand in my mind, is our accents. If you visit here, bring ear plugs. I hate my accent with a passion but as long as I just immerse myself in the world of Downton Abbey, I don't have to worry about my voice and just casually drool over British and Irish accents :D Love it

If you know whats good for you, don't read my stories. Its not very pretty.

I always enjoy just completely blabbing about all things Downton (well... mainly Anna and Bates). If ya ever feel like a chat, send me a PM :) I need to vent

A Woman Scorned by austenhomegirl reviews
Every woman wants Mr. Darcy. But Josephine will stop at nothing.
