Author has written 4 stories for Phantom of the Opera, and Harry Potter.
About Me: Hi! I'm Jem, 26 and I live in Hertford, just north of London. I graduated from York St John university a few years ago with a 2:1 (Hons) in Performance: Music. However, a degree in music doesn't mean a lot apparently so I went back to college and studied instrument repair in Morden, Surrey. I have a full time job in a shop and my musician fiance and I have moved into our own place.
Likes: Playing and listening to music, watching TV, surfing the internet, watching movies, reading, writing.
Favourite movies: Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, ALW's The Phantom of the Opera, Harry Potter, The Matrix, Moulin Rouge, Shrek/Shrek 2, The Shawshank Redemption, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sleepy Hollow, most of the stuff by Disney and Valentine. There's loads more as well but I can't list them all!
Favourite books: --sigh-- I almost left this one out. --deep breath-- The Harry Potter books, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Phantom of the Opera (Gaston Leroux), Phantom (Susan Kay), lots of James Patterson books, The Shining, Firestarter, From a Buick 8, Four Seasons (including The Shawshank Redemption), Insomnia and The Stand (all by Stephen King), The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, A Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela (autobiography), Travels With My Cello by Julian Lloyd Webber (autobiography), Deception on His Mind by Elizabeth George, and loads more. I can't list them. If you really have the urge to know the full list, email me.
Music: I'll listen to pretty much anything. When it comes to playing music, I play mostly classical stuff. Contemporary music no longer terrifies me as I managed to find and play some wonderful pieces over the past few years. At uni I was in loads of ensembles but I don't play very much, only in orchestras when they need an extra flute. I also play for Stage One Theatre Company, Ilford which is brilliant fun! I've done three shows with them so far, and have another possible five lined up this year!
Anything else? Email me and I'll do my best to answer your questions either here or in a reply email.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the show!

About the Fics:
In His Darkness: The first phantom phic I have written. It stars Erik and Marguerite and their life together living below the opera house. It's written from Marguerite's POV. Everything's planned out but it's taking a while.
1000 Talents: The idea came to me as I was walking through York one day. A modern-Erik is interviewed for a magazine with a surprise visitor...
A Hogwarts Christmas Eve: A present for all of the people I've got to know over the internet. 'Twas the night before Christmas with a Hogwarts twist.
How Neville Longbottom Became a Gryffindor: A one-shot of one of Neville's bravest moments in book four. Short and sweet.
She Was The Light: A companion to In His Darkness. The same fic written from Erik's POV. Might happen, might not. Depends what people think.
Untitled: No, that's not going to be the title... A spin-off inspired by 1000 Talents. We get to know the journalist, who in turn helps Christine and Erik re-establish a broken relationship.
