Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter.
From teenager utterly blind to how bad her writing was to professional editor (among other things) specializing in cutting all the crap to reveal the diamond underneath, or at least a semi-precious stone, it's been a long way. Fanfiction was a fun part of the journey.
Fair warning: other than Unthinkable, my stories were written when I was a teen and are not well written or in character. Editing can only fix so much, not that I have time to fully edit the longer fics.
I would like to thank everyone who has read, reviewed, or added my stories to favorites over the years. It meant the world to me when I was young and unsure of myself. It was a kind of attention and encouragement I didn't get any other way. I will never forget it, and I'm sorry that I had to disappoint my readers by leaving some stories unfinished.

FAQ because I get asked these almost every week:
Q: Will you ever finish His Mistress?
A: Your guess is as good as mine. The only reason I ever wrote fanfiction was because I found it fun. I no longer find it fun to write things as poorly written as 50 Shades of Grey, no matter how much others may like them. For now I'm focusing on rewriting and finishing Unthinkable, which I got some exciting new ideas for after rereading Deathly Hallows; I know I can make something beautiful out of it.
Q: Why don't your stories follow Harry Potter movie "canon"?
A: You mean why doesn't Lucius Malfoy have Barbie hair or carry a walking stick like some shriveled old crone in my stories? Simple: because he doesn't in the books. Or why does Hermione in my stories have bushy/frizzy rather than sleek/wavy/curly hair, or why don't Hogwarts students wear Muggle school uniforms, or why doesn't Snape look attractive, or why doesn'tanyone? Because the characters JK Rowling created, in the universe she created, don't. When I say Harry Potter, I never mean the films.
Q: Do you still (in 2015) read/reply to reviews on your old fics?
A: Yes, I read all reviews, and I usually reply to signed ones, unless there really is nothing to say. I love reviews of all sorts, but criticism is my favorite because it gives me a different perspective and something to work on. I know my writing is far from perfect but it takes me time to notice mistakes and problems in my own writing if they aren't pointed out to me. It's the usual writer's problem of seeing what I think I wrote instead of what I actually wrote.
