Author has written 13 stories for Wrestling, Walking Dead, True Blood, SeaQuest, and Boondock Saints.

I'm an aging and complex non-hipster American who thinks she should've lived in the 1930's. If only the Hot Tub Time Machine were real.

I'm probably too old to be writing Fanfiction but I've been dabbling in it since forever and all my countless attempts to sabotage my talent have proven fruitless.

Critical Acclaim:

2009: I was nominated for a SkoW Best Punk'd Award for an original Fictionpress story titled: Effortless. I was given a candy motion-graphic for my nomination and there was a slight uptick in the readers of the story for three whole weeks. It has been my one and only achievement so I've taken it upon myself to point it out often as if it is something of real importance.

2013: I was interviewed by user SoCyd for TheHeelTurnPodcast in July. It is featured on YouTube. I was featured as the Great Fan Fiction Writer of the Week. She says she chose me for the interview because I'm the best at writing Centon. I made sure to reimburse her compliment with many-worded answers.

Livia.InLovewiththeDarkness: "Your writing was so good it drew me in too the point of character possessiveness."

Suezq913 for The Walking Dead's Polar: "I'm loving this story! How can we get this show on tv? Keep up the amazing writing!"

Corkie41 for Scattered Ashes & Scattered Ashes: The Alternate Version: "I absolutely adore both versions of this story - each one has its own dynamics and the relationships between Randy, John and Gabriel are somewhat different - especially in later chapters - but that makes it even better. It's obvious from the way you write about the boys that you have a passion for the [Centon] pairing. And your characters are REAL - and I don't mean just because they are based off of real people like John and Randy. They are REAL in the sense that they act real. They say or do things that sometimes make you think "What?" [J]ust like in real life."

jesterbeatdown: "You are an incredible author, fan-fiction or otherwise. I didn't want to just leave a comment on the pieces but actually tell you that I enjoyed every second of it. You may want to consider a side spot or even career in writing if you haven't already. You capture a lot of emotion in your words, and your imagery is beyond most of what I've seen here, as in well known published works. Thank you for helping me to pass the time and regain my love for reading."

The Scurvied One for Behind Blue Eyes: "As per usual, you give us just enough in a first chapter to keep us drooling and wanting more. You always find a way to throw your readers so far off we get a craving for real [C]hinese food (meaning we are in [A]sia). You could write an entire fic about john eating bad [M]exican and having explosive pooping issues and I would love it...but that's me. Even if all you do is finish up what you have going now, I will feel something close to blessed that I was able to find your writing."

ThyBeloved: "Well, i wanted to let you know that i love your stories and i always check for updates everyday like a giddy school girl waiting for her high school crush to message her on facebook -takes breath- Keep up the kick-a work. I look forward to reading your stories."

AlKaholiK for Centon Stories:"Your stories a[r]e very well-written and very much in context with how you're directing your story. I've read a few of your stories over the years--although slash has never appealed to me (I'm not homophobic or anything like that, it's just that, when I started on this site, I used to write for the Star Ocean fandom--which became the yaoi den of doom, so to say, and that's how I developed my distaste for slash, but that's neither here or there.)--and I must say that I've been very much impressed, although quiet, about your writing, grammar, and proper spelling skills. Writers like you are VERY hard to come by and I just wanted to let you know how your writing has impressed me. You're an example of what aspiring writers should hope to become. Me? I'm pretty much a drunk guy who belts out nonsense for a cheap laugh, but I DO know art when I see it. Bottoms up!"

Belladaydream: "People are full of s-. If you love it, stick with it. Period. The end."

RatedRGirl83 for Centon: "I am NOT a big fan of Cena but I am of Orton and while I am not a fan of Cena, I do like reading Centon stories...especially when YOU write them."

SMango for Centon: "I love Cenaton, and I love your writings of them. You write them how I'd imagine them to be."

Reema (via Twitter) for Centon: "i just want to say i am a huggge fan of ur stories... you help me keep writing. Great skills and feelings on how u put it!"

Flying At Tree Level: "You're a really good writer and I love the way you portray the characters. There's something really honest about the way you write them."
