Author has written 11 stories for Harry Potter.

I'm a gay woman, late 30's, teacher, born & bred in Texas. Hobbies (when I have time - lol): sewing, crafting, writing, reading, dancing, karate... My favorite stories feature Harry Potter and Severus Snape (romance, friendship, or a mentor/guardian/parental relationship). I have alot of Snarry ideas & WIP's, but work keeps me VERY BUSY. Eventually I want to write some femslash for Xena: Warrior Princess (Xena & Gabrielle), femslash for Harry Potter (Hermione & ???), and friendship/mentor/parental-fic for Harry & Severus. But first I need to finish the many WIPs and plotbunnies in my head for my Snarry fic! Don't worry, I haven't abandoned any of my WIPs!! I'm just VERY BUSY with work and home! And it does take me a long time to write because I put A LOT of time and effort into each chapter!

March, 2017: The last few years I've been absolutely swamped!!! I *have* been working on my WIPs bit by bit. No, I have *not* abandoned any of my stories, I'm just very busy with work, chores, etc.! I have made some good progress on several of my WIP's this summer and this fall, but not enough to complete a chapter. I'm really hoping to have time to write during spring break. I'll definitely have some free time in the summer.

Updates on individual stories:

The Gift. I have ideas for the remainder of the story. It looks like it'll take 1 or 2 more chapters to wrap up this one.

You Are The Half Blood Prince! Only the epilogue remains!!! I have made progress on this one.

Bets & Consequences. I think this story will have just one or two more chapters. I have made some progress on it.

Broken Heart Curse. There will be three more chapters.

Don't Leave Me: The next chapter will take place on "Thur morning - afternoon". About half of it is written. The final chapter takes place at the End of the Year Feast, Thur night, and is a nice long chapter and with a happy ending. The final chapter is mostly done. This is the one of the hardest of my WIP's to write, so it'll likely be the last one I work on.

Astronomy Tower: This story is finished but I do have 2 sequels in mind. Part 2 ("the way to a man's heart") will be HP's pursuit of SS's friendship and love during the summer. Flirtation, frustration, angst, and then finally snogging! And recipes! I've already started on this, but the beginning needs the most work and I want to finish my WIP's before starting on sequels, so it'll be awhile before this is posted. To Snarry-lovers who are anxious for hot action, be patient. ;) My SS in this story has a painful back story (date rape, etc) & a low self image so it's necessary for HP to pursue him slowly and there will be no more than snogging in the 2nd story. In Part 3 (working on title) their intimacy slowly builds and they get some much needed Marvin Gaye-esque "healing" ;) I'll do my best.

I've got at least half a dozen ideas for new stories, but I really want to finish the above in-progress stories before I tackle any sequels or new stories! I have SO many ideas, I wish I had more time to write! *sigh*

Thank you for feeding the bard! Thanks to everyone who's tagged my profile or stories as a favorite or on alert or has left a compliment (review or pm) for my stories. I can't tell you how much joy it gives me to write and to see it be appreciated. I don't always have time to reply (or reply promptly) since my jobs keep me VERY busy, but I do appreciate them. When readers tell me how my stories make them feel or tell me specific things about my stories that they love the most, it brightens my day and gives greater meaning to my writing! I appreciate all my readers & reviewers and am glad that so many enjoy my stories and are eager for the next chapter (but... FYI, if you are anxious for me to publish more, a compliment does A LOT more to motivate me than a "more, please" or "when will you finish this?". Compliments make me glow inside and feel super appreciated! I get really excited when my email inbox shows I've got a new review! When I open it and it's just a request for the next chapter, no compliment, I feel disappointed and underappreciated. Each chapter you read, I've spent no less than a dozen hours on! If someone slaved away in a hot kitchen to cook you a 3 course meal, would you ask for second helpings, and NOT compliment the meal or the cook even once during or after the dinner?? I'm REALLY glad you love my story so much that you are so eager for more... but a compliment would be nice too :) KISS THE COOK! :D )
