Author has written 46 stories for Daniel Boone, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

I stumbled upon fan fiction, merely by accident. I so enjoyed reading everyone's Daniel Boone stories. Iv'e had a crush on him, well, really on Fess Parker since I was a kid. I loved the first two seasons of the show when I was a kid -- that's when it was its best. I secretly always wanted to be Rebecca Boone.

As my pen name suggests -- I'm a bit of a willful redhead myself. I can't quite imagine how anyone survived life in those days -- so much hardship and toil. It is much more fun to sit in a chair by a fire and imagine oneself a strong pioneer, than to actually be one!

My two favorite fanfic are Daniel Boone and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I keep saying that I'm finished writing stories, and then another one comes along. I love the power of storytelling and the way that completely fictional people can make you feel 100% real emotions.

I really love stories -- getting lost inside them. When I was younger, I used to fall asleep thinking of stories. Sometimes those stories were about people I'd seen in a movie or on tv -- turns out, I wasn't the only one.

The Memory of James by griffonnage reviews
