Author has written 36 stories for Pride and Prejudice, Misc. Plays/Musicals, Downton Abbey, and StarTrek: The Next Generation.

I discovered fanfiction.net in 2012 and have enjoyed reading all the wonderful stories published here. Many favorites are based on British period dramas (literary and not).

It's a little intimidating posting my writing, but also wonderful. Writing fanfiction has really opened up my mind and changed my writing for the better. I love taking a character and working hard to capture his or her voice and thoughts as faithfully to the original work as possible. I also love having the capability to create my own universes, in which beloved characters who die in canon can live on in my mind and writing, or in which ships that never sail in canon can come together.

As you can see, I've written quite a lot for Downton Abbey, which is currently my main fandom (Chelsie forever!). The Pride & Prejudice story that is incomplete WILL BE FINISHED. It's just that my Downton Abbey obsession has eaten up most of my fanfic energy. No promises on how long it will take, but I promise to complete it.

I've also recently become especially obsessed with Star Trek: The Next Generation (Picard/Crusher). I don't know if much writing will come out of that, but probably at least one story. The same goes for Cranford (Galindo/Carter).

I hope to share more writing with you in the future. Thanks for reading!
