Author has written 16 stories for Harry Potter.

Hello, all!

I've been a Harry Potter fan for years. I like canon stories, and AU stories where the people stay in character. Thanks go to my daughter, who beta'd my first fanfic, and my husband, who has beta'd most of the rest.

What do I look for in a story? First and foremost, it must be well-written although if the author is not a native English speaker I can accept grammatical errors.

I prefer intricately crafted stories, where something from early on plays a part in a later chapter, or where there are twists to the plot. However, a well-written, straight-forward story can also be a pleasure to read.

If a story hasn't been updated in a year, I won't start it. Sorry, if you say you will never abandon a story but the last update was in 2011, I don't believe you.

One major exception is the wonderful "Looking for Magic" by Hypnobarb. Fortunately, the story was almost complete when a family situation caused her to stop work on it; the final battle had already taken place. I hope eventually she writes the final four chapters she said she might, but in the meantime it can be enjoyed as is.

Loten and Excessivelyperky, I eagerly look forward to your next story!

My favorite character is Severus Snape.

I'm doing a happy dance - I was just notified that I was able to purchase two of the stand-by tickets for "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" in August! While I'm sure Severus is still dead during the play, at least there's fan fiction ...

16 September 2016

The play was FANTASTIC. The book can't capture the drama. Great acting, great use special effects (which add to the play rather than becoming the focus of it), great scenery ... I hope Warner Brothers, which has taken out a movie option, does film it so more can enjoy the magic.

12 February 2018

I've once again volunteered to moderate a panel on writing fan fiction at Potterverse, this year 17-19 August in Rockville, Maryland. The convention was great fun last year with everything from discussions on personality types of Hogwarts students to trivia contests. The costumes some people wore were fantastic. If you're in the area, I encourage you to go. If you do, please let me know and introduce yourself!

Harry Potter and the Prince of Slytherin by The Sinister Man reviews
Harry Potter was Sorted into Slytherin after a crappy childhood. His brother Jim is believed to be the BWL. Think you know this story? Think again. Year Four starts on 9/1/20. NO romantic pairings prior to Fourth Year. Basically good Dumbledore and Weasleys. Limited bashing (mainly of James).
