Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter, Will of the Empress, and Sherlock.

I'm a writer and a linguist; I find fanfic a fun diversion from my original works, which range from high fantasy to essays on philosophy. I blog at Epenthetical. Feel free to check out my musings on knitting, sewing, cooking, parenting, random ideas, and my fondness for tea. My first novel, Comrades We, is available through Smashwords, Kindle, and Google Play. More information here.

I mostly read Harry Potter and Sherlock fanfic, so that's what most of the fanfics I've written are for, though I do have one story based on Tamora Pierce's Circle of Magic universe in progress here as well.
