Author has written 4 stories for Greek Mythology, Mists of Avalon, Bend it Like Beckham, and What A Girl Wants.

Now (June 2012): I have been on this site for over 11 years as a registered user; even longer than that as an unregistered user. Scary how time flies, isn't it? I've watched this site evolve, back when there was no such thing as "chapters" in a story, to the image manager that's being rolled out now.

I'm an avid reader of fanfiction and read pretty much every fandom that I'm familiar with. I'm terrible at leaving reviews, but I subscribe to everyone I love to read on Author Alerts (another feature that I watched get rolled out over the last decade - at one point it was only available to paid members).


Then: College sophomore, majoring in business, didn't know what she'd be concentrating in yet, minored in international relations, certified in French, law school-hopeful...all of this at the most cutthroat business school in North America. Still love reading fics; wishes she had the time to write them, besides the spontaneous bursts of muse activity that happens once in a blue moon.

Way Back Then: High school junior who was brilliant at math and French, and good at everything else...or so she'd have you believe. Loved/s classical mythology and reading anything/everything she could get her hands or browser on.


PS (last one, I promise): This is how you pronounce my pen name correctly: A-stroh-ne-mah Or, you know the word "astronomy?" Take the "my" out and replace it with a "ma."
