Author has written 11 stories for Walking Dead.

I am 30 yr old mom and wife. I used to write a ton of short stories when I was younger and found that I missed writing. After a few years of reading fan fiction I found myself wishing for more. I had specific stories I wanted to read, but no one had written them! I guess it was my call to action when I was reading a really good story and the author had a 45 year old man say "as if" I pictured Alicia Silverstone in Clueless and couldn't get past that line of dialog. I then realized I shouldn't be hypocritical if I wasn't going to give it a go myself. So I started writing my first story. Hope it doesn't suck.

Black Moon Blues by Haitus80 reviews
What if there was a way to prevent the events that brought the group to the prison? What if there was a way to save every single person they have lost along the way? What if second chances at the end of the world actually existed? Will they be strong enough to save the others? This story has given me many sleepless nights but I think it has been worth it.

Red Herrings by ShanghaiLily reviews
The story picks up where 'Follow the MacGuffin' leaves off. Somebody is trying to kill Veronica, but why?

When you've pissed off half of Neptune, anything is possible. LoVe/MaDi

Of A Certain Age by the ramblin rose reviews
Caryl (primarily) AU. In your 20's you're still growing up, in your 30's your an adult, but no one explains to you exactly what it means when you cross over to being "of a certain age" and you still feel just the same as you did before. Some would say that the excitement of your life is over, but really it's just beginning. M for language, sexual content, etc.
