Author has written 17 stories for One Life To Live, Sherlock, and General Hospital.

I'm a writer and artist living in Massachusetts. My stories are on the dark/angsty side, aim for some psychological complexity and deal frankly with sexuality. I love brooding anti-heroes and have fallen utterly and irretrievably under the spell of the actor Roger Howarth, aka OLTL's Todd Manning, and now GH's Franco Baldwin. It's a happy obsession :-)

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoy, and please leave a comment — it means the world to me.

Son reviews
Scotty finally learns the truth about Franco and Jim Harvey. This is a beat I hoped GH would have played, but no such luck. Edited to add: So GH finally did play this beat on-screen today (4/5/18) and it was well done. Just consider this story AU.

On the Eve of Her Wedding… reviews
An explicit one-shot from Elizabeth's POV, written before Franco's abuse storyline wrapped up... so it's missing that one, very important revelation, which would certainly have changed the tone. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
