Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter, and Sherlock.

You're on my profile right now that's a good start! Hello to you, how are you? I hope you have a lovely night/day. Don't do anything I wouldn't do.

My name is Courtney, my user name is Courtney.Wortney cause its a cute name my mum called me when I was little just in case you were wondering :). I'm a huge fan of Sherlock, Doctor Who, and Harry Potter. I'm nineteen and I live in New Zealand and I work in St John and I'm a St John youth Grand Prior cadet now a youth leader, (St John is our ambulance service in New Zealand) I also work in a book shop and I spend all my hours I'm not on counter secretly looking for my next read and pondering over book blurbs and covers like an art critic would a work of art. They say don't judge a book by it's cover but I'm guilty of doing that, not with people, just books. I have lived through not one but two major earthquakes and well over a thousand aftershocks, seen my city fall and rebuild all in the space of three years. Such fun.
