Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.
Okay, here's the latest on me and my life:
I'm a mid-level marketing executive who is currently taking a sabbatical and spending some time getting back to my roots to figure out what I truly want to do with my life. I still love writing, and reading--although now I also spend a lot of my evenings watching movies, watching my husband play various games, and playing Civilization VI. I first started writing fanfiction when I was in high school, continuing with two more stories when I was in college. And then I took an eleven-year hiatus!
I hope you all like what I'm doing. If you don't, please be constructive with your criticism. I don't expect everyone to like what I'm doing, but I appreciate when readers go beyond simple descent. These stories are for all to enjoy, but they are first and foremost for me. Flame me if you must (but try not to make it a habit!). I love to hear what you're thinking with my stories, so send me a review or a private message.
Thanks for everything!
10/4/20: Well, here it comes--I'm going to start posting my re-write of my first fanfiction, "A Twisted Sense of Fate". The new version, "Twisted Fate" will be a stand-alone re-write. If you've red the original, great--I think you'll still get something out of this new version (hopefully it will satisfy many of the critiques from over the years... minus the spelling mistakes, I don't think I ever actually went back and fixed those). If you're new to it all, welcome! Feel free to go back and read the original duo, or wait for this version to finish first. Either way, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I've enjoyed writing it.
12/18/19: I'm back! It's been an interesting 10 years since I last posted an update here. I never thought I'd be back, and while the creativity bug has bitten me in the past (which I sadly lost in a combination of computer glitch and user error) there's one thing I've always wanted to do: re-write my original story, A Twisted Sense of Fate. I'm excited to bring back this story with a new perspective... keep an eye out for when I post it!
10/2/08: I have finally finished Twisted Destiny. I am truly sorry for how long it took me to write this story. However, I am partially glad that it took me longer. I strongly believe the creative strikes in different ways at different times -- Twisted Destiny would have looked radically different if I would have finished it years ago, verses two days ago. Reading the additions I have made to it over the past year, I can recognize moments and conversations I've had -- not just about Harry Potter, but other disciplines, as well. I have intersected themes from many of the things I love to create a story that developed in its own time.
This may be hard for some to understand, but finishing that story, that series, ends a large chapter in my life. I am not the same person I was when I started writing fan fiction. While I hope that inspiration strikes as it did with 'Brothers in Scars,' there is nothing else planned after this. For me, the "What ifs" of fan fiction might be over -- although deep down, I know that another question will bring me back to my first, and favorite, creative outlet.
7/7/2008: As any one who is paying attention to my un-updated UPDATE posting can tell, I've already posted my one-shot, 'Brothers in Scars.' (By the way, I got an A in the class -- as well as an A on the paper on fan fiction that inspired me to write it.) I'm currently spending my summer vacation (the last be for I graduate... creepy) working a desk with the ability to do what I want while I'm on duty. SO, I'm hopefully going to finish 'Destiny.' (Hopefully.) With any luck, I'll be updating the UPDATE soon.
12/8/2007: I'll be posting a new fic soon, a post-OotP A/U about Harry and Neville and the prophecy. (I felt inspired after I took a class on Harry Potter, and wrote it in one night.)
11/14/2007: Twisted Destiny (Chapter 19) is almost done... it's written, I just need to finish typing it/editing it. Also, once I've ended Twisted Destiny, I'm going to go back (FINALLY) and edit Twisted Fate - you all know what I'm talking about...the horrible days without spell/grammar check, when Voldemort had and 'r' in his name.
