Author has written 11 stories for Once Upon a Time.

I'm a 24-year-old community college student who's been going for 7 years (yes, I started in high school). I have my AA but didn't want to spend the money to go to a 4-year school when I didn't even know what I wanted to be. As a result, I've taken a class in just about every subject and know a little about a lot. I've finally found my passion - acting - and am hoping to go to film school. Until then, I'm involved in my community's theater, work full-time, and continue to take classes in anything and everything.

I love TV (thank goodness for DVR) and watch several shows; my favorite, of course, being Once Upon A Time :)

There are so many good books out there, but my all-time favorite is A Salty Piece of Land by Jimmy Buffett. I started reading it about 8 years ago, and have read it about 100 times since. Oddly enough, I've never finished it. I love it so much, I don't want it to end - I always stop about 30 pages before I finish. Someday (maybe soon) I'm going to finally read it all the way through.

When I'm not doing all of these things, I spend every minute writing, painting, drawing and hiking. Hiking, aside from being something I love to do, never fails to provide opportunities for gorgeous photos (photography is also a hobby of mine).

With all of these things, I know it sounds like I wouldn't keep up on my updates, but I promise that's not the case. I'm aware of how painful it is to start a fic, get really into it, and then wait for months and months, worrying that it's been abandoned and will never be finished.

I'm new to writing fanfiction, but I'm already in love with it! I'm an Evil Regal, so if you notice some favoritism, you'll know why ;)

Thanks for visiting!

AU. Three weeks after the return of magic, a far more sinister enemy has risen to threaten the lives of everyone in Storybroke. /'Physical pain is nothing any more.

Unfolding a Plan by letgolaughing reviews
My take on what should have happened between Regina and David during the episode "The Stranger". Rated T just in case. Please don't let the length deter you! I update frequently because I always get asked to that's all :)

Sparrows and Nightingales by minorshan reviews
Magic is unpredictable now, but it still comes at a price. After the curse breaks, a desperate Regina casts a spell, accidentally erasing her memory back to the day Daniel died. But all of Storybrooke will pay this spell's price. Is it truly justice to punish someone for crimes they don't remember? Can Regina come to grips with what she became? In FTL, Cora's origins and beyond.

Imprisoned by Once.Evil.Regal reviews
My very own season 2. Magic has returned to Storybrooke, and Regina seizes her opportunity for revenge. But plans go awry as an unexpected enemy surfaces, leaving the townspeople reeling in the wake of a tragic loss. No Swan Queen, but lots of good Emma/Regina, Regina/Henry and Emma/Henry moments to come. Plenty of Snow/Charming/Emma as well.

Pride Before A Fall reviews
Regina's taken by the flying monkey during that first run-in after their arrival in the Enchanted Forest. Locked in the dungeons of the castle, she's close to giving up hope before she meets someone who needs her help, and it sets her on a new path. Or maybe, an old one... Post 3x12 AU with both Storybrooke and Enchanted Forest. Eventual Outlaw Queen and lots of little Roland.

Holiday Spirit reviews
Regina had gone to bed in an empty house, resigned to spend the first holiday since the curse broke - and for ten years before that - alone. But that's not what she finds in the morning. Only days before Christmas, a bit of magic turns the town of Storybrooke upside down, and this time, she has absolutely nothing to do with it.
