Author has written 5 stories for Grimm.

Salutations!

I'm a BIG fan of the TV show, Grimm and have found it to be quite inspiring, so I thought I would try my hand at some creative writing. Little did I know that the ideas would flow so quickly.

I was a fan-fiction first timer with Sweaters Are a Girl's Best Friend, which is over 60,000 words, and I wrote out the rough draft in 3 weeks! I've been surprised and delighted with the positive comments I've received, and I'm enjoying this new hobby of mine.

The sequel, Fifty Shades of Gray Sweaters was written in a month and is over 130,000 words.

The third story in the Sweater Series, If You Want to Destroy My Sweater took a few months, but it's roughly 315,000 words. (Yeah, it's bigger than A Game of Thrones.)

Who knows, maybe I'll try to write something original soon. Thank you, Grimm! (:

Here are a few extras to my story, Fifty Shades of Gray Sweaters --

Chapter 20 - A link to the book description of Dally Winston in The Outsiders:
I especially liked the "sharp animal-like teeth, and ears like a lynx," so that was kinda an inside joke if you know the book.
This way even if you don't know the book, you get the inside joke, too. (:
