Author has written 15 stories for Holby City.

'Brandstifterin' is a German word which translates approximately as 'firestarter'. It became a running joke in my A-Level class (many moons ago) and I've decided to use it for my online stuffs (so another online 'brandstifterin', may be me!). I don't really run around setting fire to things, I should probably add. Honest. (-:

For those of you on Twitter: @_brandstifterin


First things, first, I won't ever abandon a story part way through; though I might leave something for a little while as I try to work out what happens next :-)

For some unfathomable reason, I have been asked a few times about writing help, but the actual help of my responses are anyone's guess. So feel free to message me but you have been warned!

Every so often I will offer spot prizes of one-shots to keep the muse happy, so keep an eye out and it might be you :-)

I think that's about it... all that remains is to say: Live Long and Prosper!


SPOT PRIZES:

For the 50th Review of 'Improper Conduct' - Congratulations Niamhieblue17 :-) - Story coming soon

For the 75th Review of 'Just One Of Those Days' - Congratulations Jo :-) - Story coming soon
