Author has written 70 stories for Xena: Warrior Princess, Rizzoli & Isles, Guiding Light, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.
Hi there! Thanks for checking out my bio. Let's see... I make my home in Southeastern Michigan with my hubby, daughter and menagerie of pets. As for stories, I began writing at age 10 after listening to my grandmother talk about her journey to America from England. I've got an Associates degree in psychology and journalism and now have a full time career doing copy writing for businesses. When I'm not writing, I enjoy an array of music, movies and painting.
I do fan-ish, bad quality fan art too, as well as running my own fanfiction site (http://www.cnscaldron.com) which hosts all my works across a number of fandoms (mostly femme slash). You'll find more fic there that's not posted here (as well as 'director cut' versions of many of the stories at fanfiction.net. There are some stories I can't post here at all because 1) there's just too many and 2) it would never get past the rating requirement. So if you're a grown-up then there might be fic out there you'll enjoy.
I'm also a founding member of the Ultimate Fan Fiction Directory (http://www.xenafanfiction.info/) that's home to one of the largest fan fiction directories in the Xenaverse. While I don't do the daily updates anymore (that's overseen by HeartbrokenBard and her reporters), I still archive the 'What's new page' for each month.
Last but not least, I'm also the executive producer of Watchers: The Virtual Series (http://www.thewatcherscouncil.net/). It's a VS involving Willow, Giles, Faith, Kennedy, Robin and Andrew who set up shop in Cleveland along with fellow watcher Rowena Allister to rebuild the Watchers council. Our creative team ran the show for five years, and did six years worth of stories. So if you love the scoobies, you might want to check it out if you've got a few spare weeks on your hands. It'll take awhile to read it all, but hopefully you'll think it's worth it.
For those interested in allllllllll the stories I've done which can be found at cnscaldron.com, here they are. Some stories that appear here may be edited versions of the original or they might not appear here at all because of restrictions, which is all good and fine by me.
