Author has written 26 stories for CSI, Resident Evil series, and Hunger Games.

Hello Readers, Writers & Fandom's of all forms!

I've been writing since I was 12 years old which when you are 29, is quite along time. I've always enjoyed reading as a kid, either being read too, reading to someone, or putting my own nose in a book. I find it to be thrilling, treating the characters like real people and not being able to find out what happens next. I still read, and try to read just as much as I write, but it is a difficult task when your work almost consumes your life. Stephen King said if you're a writer when you're not writing you should be reading.

The first story I remember ever writing was called "The Magic Boy". It was only two pages, single spaced and neatly printed (for a 12 year old that was a lot). The plot was quite literally about a boy who had magical powers. Simplistic, but it gets the point across. Since then I've been creating romance, horror, action/adventure, dystopia, mystery, and fantasy stories of various lengths and levels of complexity. The desire to infuse real life with imagination continues to be the driving force for my stories to blossom.

I got my first taste of what "Fan fiction" really was when I was 13. There was a story on a Mummy fan site called "The Mummy, Another Tale" fit in perfectly with my current obsession with the 1999 Blockbuster Hit starting Rachel Weisz and Brendan Fraiser. This story is what kicked off my writing career (I even still have a copy in my desk drawer). My own writing "career" began to fall in step with my all time favourite series; CSI. In the year 2000 I was bewildered by this crime drama. I became emotionally invested in the characters, seeing them as real people which was a bit problematic at times (hate mail anyone?) as my own crime stories peculating in my brain.

I am not afraid to admit that editing is not one of my strong suits. I have horrible grammar and sometimes sentence structure, but this is where my readers\reviewers come into play. I LOVE getting comments on what I write!!!! It makes me feel appreciated, respected by the writing community, and that people are taking the time to invest as much time in reading it as I am writing it. I do try my best to respond to messages and reviews, understanding how valuable one author's opinion can be to another.

The best piece of advice I have for any new or even veteran authors out there; pay it forward. By reading and reviewing the work of those who take the time to do the same for you, you will gain more exposure, a nice social network, and above all, respect. I can understand how frustrating it is sometimes to post a work on here and never hear from other writers, or when you do, it is the one word reviews with no substance...trust me, we have all been there! Showing a bit of effort in your review, since you took the time to read the story, would be appreciated.

What I write on ff.net. goes as follows:

CSI- Parings of:

  • [Gil Grissom & Catherine Willows] = Grillows
  • [Nick Stokes & Sara Side] = Snickers
  • [Greg Sanders & Sara Sidle] = Sandles
  • [Catherine Willows & Sara Sidle]
  • Resident Evil - Parings of:

  • [Project Alice\Alice Abernathy & Claire Redfield]
  • [Jill Valentine & Chris Redfield]
  • [Carlos Olivera & Claire Redfield]
  • Aside from my Fan Fictions I do also write my own work. I love to write short stories and also, for the last three years, have entered NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). The challenge to write 50,000 words in a month is quite stressful! It was a bit stressful at first, but after the first week or so I was on a roll and loving every moment of it. I would recommend this to any new or old author, it is amazing how focused you become and a great way to keep ideas fresh and flowing even if they are only partially completed ones. The last thing I want to mention, is the biggest news of all!

    I'm a published author! I know that for some of you on here this is probably the final step, the place where you want to be, the peak of your career! But let me tell you, it's no picnic. I published my very first, original work "Secretive" 7 years ago through a Self Publishing Company in the States named PublishAmerica. Unfortunately, the book is no longer on the shelves.

    The rights have been given back to me and I am looking to revamp and re-pitch in a few years time.

    Keep those fingers pounding the key board and the pen hitting the paper, being a writer is hard work, but in the end it always pays off!
