Author has written 2 stories for Hunger Games, and Criminal Minds.

I've always been an avid reader and I've been known to become so obsessed with what I'm reading that I disappear from the world for days at a time - and when I'm done, you can find me moping around because the story is over. What a great relief it's been to find that some stories continue to live on here, thanks to all of you.

My favourites: Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, anything by Alberto Vázquez-Figueroa or Anne Rice, and the Dragonlance.

I'm also a big fan of TV shows: Chuck (when, oh when, are they going to give us a movie, please?), Game of Thrones (I have to confess - I haven't read the books... yet!), House, Alias, The Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, The Originals, How I Met Your Mother, The 10th Kingdom... And, of course, of movies - but my taste is too eclectic to start enumerating examples.

I live the stories. While I'm reading or watching something, if feels like I'm there, like I know these characters and I'm going through the same. Hence why I've not been able to watch a scary movie in ages.

But I'm cool with vampires. I liked them before they were "in", when they were still ugly and evil, and not "vegetarian". I also liked pirates the first time around, before they lost their appeal until Mr Depp brought them back.

I have now been in hiatus for months, I'm sad to admit. Life took over, with work, classes, training and a hectic social life in this busy new country. BUT - I plan to return to my Criminal Minds story (just need to get my mojo back) and I want to continue translating Nine Lives of Peta Mellark, so watch this space!

You can also contact me if you need a beta reader in either English or Spanish.

I am looking forward to reading all of you!
