Hi there!

Thanks for visiting my profile and reading my stories. I've just started writing fanfic, so I appreciate any feedback you'd like to provide.

As a little background, I wrote my first story, Life Goes On, because I really didn't like the ending to Mockingjay. I hated the character that SC turned Peeta into, and I felt like she never brought him back to the beloved boy with the bread from the first two books. Which made the whole epilogue hard for me to swallow. So, I wrote a slightly modified ending that made me fall in love with Peeta all over again. I hope it does the same for you!

My second story, Nightlock, is in progress. I don't want to give too much away because there's a lot of suspense in it, but I'm focusing a little more on Gale to make all those fans happy. This will be a full-length story, comparable to the actual HG books.

If you care to know anything about me, here goes... I live in North Carolina (USA) with my husband and our menagerie of two dogs, two birds, and fish (unfortunately our snake recently passed away). I'm a veterinarian by training, but currently work as a medical/technical writer. So I have lots of experience writing, just not creatively.

I've been an avid reader since age 6 (seriously--as soon as I could read, there was always a book in my hand!). The genres I tend to like are mystery (especially medical mysteries), horror, and romance (those with a plot, not Harlequin!). I've never been a huge scifi fan, but these YA books with a romantic twist have definitely gotten me interested! My favorite authors are Dean Koontz, Patricia Cornwell, Robin Cook, Janet Evanovich, Stephenie Meyer, and Stephen King.

Like most folks on here, I'd love to have something original published one day. Which is why I really like your reviews! Receiving and addressing constructive criticism is a great way to improve, and positive feedback is a great motivator to continue writing. So, if you like my stories, let me know!

Thanks again for visiting my profile and reading my stories!

Update:

I just wanted to let you know that I've been working on an original story called Pangalax. It's on fanfiction's sister site fictionpress, if you'd like to take a look. It's a romantic adventure, much like Nightlock, but with brand new characters named Aveyana and Kye whose story unfolds on a US space station. Please take a look and let me know what you think!

Here's the address for Pangalax:

If you weren't ready for the adventures of Katniss, Peeta, and Gale to end, check out this fourth book in the series. What if Katniss didn't kill Coin? What if things turned out differently for Gale? Follow the trio as Katniss tries to figure out her heart and save the world. Plenty of Peeta and Gale to please folks on either team.
