Author has written 24 stories for Sleeping Beauty, Once Upon a Time, Cinderella, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Mass Effect, and Dragon Age.

Hi there!

I'm never really sure what to say about myself. I'm a professional actor in real life, which means I often work a lot of other jobs to support my performing habit, so my life vacillates wildly between extreme busyness and extreme down time, as does my writing. I'm not a professional writer, but I'd like to be someday. You can read my feeble attempt at original work over on fictionpress: fictionpress.com/u/1046067/Lady-Acacia

The Prisoner is my most popular work, so if you're here wondering about that, it updates VERY slowly, but I have absolutely no intention of giving up on it. I also have some half-baked ideas for a sequel!

I'm working (also very slowly) on the second draft of Early to Bed, but if you would like to read the first draft, it's available on AO3: archiveofourown.org/works/790770

Prompts are welcome! My preferred genres are probably obvious, but if you're not sure, feel free to ask. I love a challenge and I assure you that I am very friendly!

BEAUTIFUL ART AND THINGS!!!
