Author has written 29 stories for X-Files, Harry Potter, and Sherlock.

Over-educated, middle-aged mother of two (10 and 7). I wrote X-Files fanfic back in the day under the penname Abra Elliott and have been slowly recovering my stories through the Wayback Machine to post here, my old site long since deleted. These days, I play in the Snarry and Sherlock sandboxes.

Reviews are cherished and loved, even though my inability to respond in a timely manner doesn't exactly show this.

Sexually explicit stories are posted at my account (abrae) on AO3.
