Author has written 76 stories for Nanny and the Professor, Fifty Shades Trilogy, and Twilight.
As a writer for this site since late 2011, I have posted stories in the areas of Nanny and the Professor, Fifty Shades of Grey, and Twilight. I have left two unfinished Twilight stories, mostly due to hitting writer's block. It is often easy to begin an idea,mbut more difficult to compete it. Over the past two years, I have discovered a former girlhood favorite, Jane Austen. In reading her works for the first time after nearly forty years, I discovered new insights based on that lifetime of experience.
A great favorite is Pride and Prejudice and I have become fascinated by the many interpretations, variations, and continuations that I have read. I have tried my hand at a couple of stories of my own, but after disappointing my Twilight readers after dropping a couple of stories, have decided not to post anything new until I at least have a complete story to post chapter by chapter with edits based on feedback. Older but wiser, as they say, I believe that I will begin posting in two weeks after the school year ends.
As a teacher who has spent thirty years in the classroom, I find this kind of writing for pleasure as a release from the tensions of everyday life. For the past ten years, I have been teaching to Latin to energetic, and often squirrelly, seventh and eighth graders. For the past nine years, I have spent the last two months of each school year dividing my classes into Herry Potter houses and running a house championship. The winning house for 2016 is Gryffindor.
Several times I have considered trying my hand at Harry Potter fan fiction, from a Hogwarts professior's point of view, but it seems nearly impossible to build on the tremendous efforts of JK Rowling. Thus I will contain my efforts to Jane Austen's canon and hope for the best.
