Author has written 1 story for Vampire Diaries.
So since I'm writing now, I figured I better actually put up a profile!
My real name is Kara Harmon and I have been absolutely obsessed with the written word since I was old enough to read.Most of the time I'm a huge text-based RPer at a site called The Keep, but sadly RP has been lacking as of lately, so I've been channeling my writing energy into fanfic. I have somewhere around 100 characters that I've played over the twelve years I've been RPing, the first of which was Saylene Hawk, ergo my screen name.
My fascination with the paranormal started somewhere around third or fourth grade when I fell in love with Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie with Kristie Swanson and Luke Perry, not the TV show) and My Boyfriend's Back. From there it was just a hop, skip and a jump to being obsessed with paranormal romance. One copy of A Deeper Hunger by Sabine Kells (awesome book, btw) that my mother fished out of the grocery store dollar bin was all that it took. I'm pretty sure she lived to regret that purchase because I've been absolutely smitten with the paranormal (vampires in partricular) ever since.
I'm an aspiring writer who- thanks to real life- can never seem to get a novel finished; however, I've held on to my most recent novel, Traitor, for longer than most and I'm hoping that within the next year or two I will have it ready and can either self-publish or if I'm really lucky, can get it picked up by an actual publisher. In the meantime I'm writing fanfic to try and hone my craft and get some recognition so that hopefully when the time comes I'll already have a fan base.
As advertised, I'm a huge paranormal buff. If it's got something to do with the supernatural, I'm there. Here's a few of my current obsessions:
* The Vampire Diaries (books and TV show- total Damon/Elena fan)
* True Blood/The Southern Vampire Mysteries (Damn you Charlaine Harris for messing up Eric...I'm not sure how much I love you anymore. :( )
* White Collar
* Game of Thrones
* L.J. Smith's Series: The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle, Nightworld The Forbidden Game & Dark Visions
* Laurell K. Hamilton's Series: Anita Blake & Meredith Gentry
* Anne Rice's Belinda (one of my all time faves) and her Sleeping Beauty series
I could go on forever I'm sure, but I won't bore you. :-P While I like a lot of things, you can probably expect me to stick to writing fiction for The Vampire Diaries; the characters are just very close to my heart and easy to write for me. I may branch out later, if I get the desire, but for now it's TVD all the way. I don't bite and I love feedback, so feel free to PM me or review my fics. I'm not going to say I'm taking requests because inspiration comes where it comes, but if there's something you'd like to see feel free to shoot it my way. You never know, it might be something I'd like to write!
Note: Due to the apparent desire of the powers-that-be to crack down on what is and isn't allowed in an M-rated fic, I have preemptively censored my current fic (Choices, Changes & Promises) for this site and posted the unedited MA version on Fell's Church Library. If you have difficulties locating the website, please PM me for more information.
Some of you probably noticed my recent lack of updates on Choices, Changes & Promises. I'm happy to announce that there is an excellent reason for this! As of August 25th, 2012 I am now a happilly married woman! Now that the wedding is over I hope to be back to writing a little more regularly. Thanks for your understanding. :)
