Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.

I am certainly old enough to know better, but I have found myself hopelessly addicted to Harry Potter fan fiction.

Harry/Draco is my favorite ship, although I'll read almost anything.

I have started posting re-edited chapters of AMiT at www.schnoogle.com and on the Silver Snitch under the pen name Shadow Bandit in the event that you want to read this story elsewhere.

Discoveries of the Heart is on hold. I have started the next chapter no less than six times and just can't seem to make it work.

A Moment in Time is finally completed. I hope you enjoyed it. I plan on working on Discoveries of the Heart later this month.

Thank you to everyone who has read A Moment in Time or Discoveries of the Heart and shared this wonderful experience with me. I value each and every comment that I continue to recieve. You people are wonderful and I love reading your feedback.

However, due to some ...how should I say this...interesting reviews, I will no longer be accepting anonymous reviews. I love feedback, but get fustrated when someone clearly has questions or issues with my story or writing style but refuses to leave an email address so that I can respond to their comments. Please keep in mind that fanfiction is a labor of love, no one is getting paid for their time or energy spent creating all these wonderful stories that we enjoy. Additionally, no one is forcing you to read something that you do not like. It's simple really, don't like it, don't read it.

I write only for my own entertainment but your thoughts/comments are welcomed and encouraged. I hope that you enjoy my humble offerings.

I was just notified that AMiT has won the 2006 Bronze Quill award for third place in the Romance division of the HP Fanfiction competition. I was overjoyed to receive this award as the competition was very strong.I have read most of the fanfiction stories nominated. Thank you very much to the readers that both nominated and voted for AMiT. It means more that I can say. Here is the website if your interested: http://www.geocities.com/dragonhidequills/

Thank you to RaNdOm Hp FaN who is a wonderful beta. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate her assistance with this long project. Her hard work and quick turn around times must be duly noted.

Also thank you to MARIA-JONAN, who has graciously volunteered to translate AMiT into Spanish. The Spanish version of this story is listed under her user name or by searching under the title, A Moment in Time. Thank you for sharing my story with all our Spanish speaking friends.

If you are looking for some very good stories, please check out my favorite stories and favorite authors. I've tried not to duplicate the same stories and authors, so the ones listed under favorite authors have more than one story that I consider excellent. Most of them contain slash, but not all of them. Regardless they are all worth your time. Enjoy.
