Author has written 8 stories for Song of the Lioness, Star Wars, Phantom of the Opera, and Silent Witness.

I have burned countless hours over the last 12 years on this site. I keep meaning to give it away and read more 'serious' literature, but just never seem to be able to because I find myself so attached to some of my favourite characters. And, I'm increasingly finding that there are some truly talented authors out there writing fanfic that could very easily stand on it's own. I have a tendency to devour stories- I'll happily plough through a 200k story in one sitting, and for that reason often wait until stories are complete to read them. If you got my attention while your story was a WIP, well done, because I'm pretty terrible at trying to wrap my head around multiple serialised stories at once. To make up for this, I try to keep up a strong reviewing ethic for the stories I do read update by update.

I'm a bit of a fandom hussy. I've dabbled in a small handful but have read my way through about ten times that number and will probably continue to do so for quite some time yet. There's so many incomplete fragments of stories sitting on my hard drive I lost count a while ago, but maybe one of these days I'll actually finish something. Fandoms I've wandered through are weirdly varied: Song of the Lioness, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dark Angel, The Lord of the Rings, The Phantom of the Opera, The Matrix, JAG, Farscape, Pride & Prejudice, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Twilight, Glee, Battlestar Galactica, True Blood, The Borgias, Downton Abbey, Suits, Game of Thrones/ A Song of Ice and Fire, Homeland...

Books: Beloved- Toni Morrison, East of Eden- John Steinbeck, The English Patient- Michael Ondaatje, The End of the Affair- Graham Greene, The Alexandria Quartet- Lawrence Durrel, The Poisonwood Bible- Barbara Kingsolver, Catch-22- Joseph Heller, Dr. Zhivago- Boris Pasternak, The Name of the Rose- Umberto Eco, The French Lieutennant's Woman- John Fowles, Tess of the d'Urbervilles- Thomas Hardy, The Sound and the Fury- William Faulkner, Atonement- Ian McEwan
