Hello! I'm Jo, a 35-year-old woman, bookworm, and fanfiction addict. I've been a hopeless bookworm since age 3, and started writing just before I turned 20.
Open notice: After receiving some queries (some without contact information), I'd just like to say that if anyone wants to translate any of my fics into another language, use concepts from them, or write fanfic for them, go ahead. Just drop me a line to say so, because it makes me happy.
AN OPEN LETTER TO MY READERS:
Please do not bitch for updates. A polite "I like this story, update soon" is fine. "You haven't updated in forever", "why aren't you writing", threats, and suggestions that I stop doing other things like travel with my family (all of which I've recieved for various works) are not acceptable. Writing is very rewarding, but it's not easy, and being treated like some sort of writing slave does not help.
Now, most people would say at this point that they'd only take orders about their stories if they were being paid, which is illegal in fanfiction anyway. As I've never found money to be an effective goad, I can only say this: I write for love of the series, the characters, my storyline, and for fun. Being attacked by my readers is hurtful, it's upsetting, it's at times downright frightening, and what part of that is love or fun?
I'm not saying "don't tell me if there are plot holes, mischaracterizations, plain old mistakes, and confusing parts". I want to know that, so I can improve or fix things. I'm just saying to stop treating me like a machine.

In honor of my birthday, and by popular request, I'm reposting The Best Defense. Please enjoy. _
February 12th, 2014:
Inconceivable is complete. In answer to several reviews, yes, I am going to eventually try to write a sequel. At the moment, however, although I have some of the initial conditions in mind, I don't know where to start or who should be narrators. Due to this and having a number of other projects, it'll be a long while before any sequel comes out. Thanks for reading!

Also, I have returned to my roots and begun a YYH/HP fic not related to The Best Defense. Hyoga Yukina and the Dementors of Azkaban will be slow going, but I hope to post every two weeks or so.

My second book, A Town Without Ghosts, is now available on Amazon Kindle:
"In 1873, a fox in human guise entered a small mountain village...
2nd day of the 10th month, Meiji 6, "Shosetsu"
As I set brush to paper, creeping frost and a crescent moon grace this long, narrow village, which seems huddled in on itself despite no sign of today's namesake light snow. I find my shoulders hunch in on themselves under the inn's padded housecoat, though my room is behind the kitchen stove and the hibachi box piled high with embers and dottle.
