Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter.

Like many of you I did not want the Harry Potter books to end, and was delighted to find Fan Fiction. As I read I noticed that many stories were started promising to cover the 19 years, but no one got close to finishing. So I started, and spent about two years roughing out a story covering the 19 years, along with a very rough second generation story. Then I started posting the story on another site, getting a lot of reads and a fair number of reviews.

I have been playing in the Harry Potter universe since 2009. I want to thank my Beta FriendofMolly, who has been with me for most of the series. I am looking for a British Beta.

Canon for me is the books. I may or may not use something from the movies. I also try and follow Rowling’s comments about the 19 years and the characters. Please let me know if you think anything I write violates canon.

I like Harry and the Weasley family. They have gone through some hard times, and will continue to have struggles, but I refuse to portray them as a disysfunctional family. That does not mean that all families in the Wizarding Community are nice.

The first four stories are:

“The First Year” covering a little more than a year, finished,

“Broomsticks and Bad Guys” covering Ginny’s Quidditch career and Harry as they finally catch all of the remaining Death Eaters,

“The Birth of the Potter Children” that will end with Lilly Luna as an infant,

And “Raising Albus,” which will focus on the years of Albus Potter until he goes to Hogwarts.

As you see, the story moves from just Harry and Ginny to the next generation, and especially Albus.

In addition to not seeing any 19 year stories I have not seen any with heroic next generation children. I’m trying to write one. Stay tuned.

I am a 68 year old American, married 45 years, father of 4 Harry Potter fans, grandfather of 7. I still work full time at a business my oldest son and I own, so writing is a very part time thing.

We all owe a debt to Rowling for creating this fantastic universe we all are playing in, for readers and reviewers who make doing the work worthwhile, and to the site for giving us a place to do it.

Raising Albus reviews
Raising Albus is turning out to be a challenge. Raising a child that is extraordinarily magically talented is difficult enough, but when the child is the subject of several prophesies the task can be daunting. Harry feels it may have been easier being a child subject to prophesies than raising one. Teddy wants to be an Auror. James and Lily pose their own challenges

Bad Guys and Broomsticks reviews
This is the second of a planned 4 stories covering Harry and Ginny from the Battle of Hogwarts to the day Albus leaves for Hogwarts. It may help to read the first story, "The First Year," before reading this story. This story will cover Ginny's Quidditch career, but focus on Harry's growing power and influence as they capture the remaining death eaters.

Tiny Tim, a Shaggy Kneazle Story, expanded version reviews
This was originally written for the HPFF Winter Writer's Duel 2013. Thanks to my Beta FriendofMolly who suggested the happy ending. Once I had the less than 4,000 word version done I couldn't stop. The characters just had more of a story to tell. This is set in my Almost Happily Ever After universe.

The First Year, an Almost Happily Ever After story reviews
Fairy tales end "And They Lived Happily Ever After," but good stories continue on "one season following another, laden with happiness ... and tears." The first of 4 stories covering the 19 years until Albus goes to Hogwarts. I have a rough draft all the way to the finish!
