Author has written 129 stories for Batman, Nightwing, DC Superheroes, Robin, Teen Titans, Will of the Empress, Protector of the Small Quartet, Dark is Rising Sequence, Chronicles of Narnia, Birds Of Prey, Circle of Magic, Justice League, Facts of Life, Daredevil, Series Of Unfortunate Events, Animaniacs, Wonder Woman, Peanuts, Secret Garden, and Muppet Show.

Born Montreal, Canada. Currently living in Toronto. Dreaming in Gotham, Tortall, and Emelan. Not much else to say. I majored in English Lit, and my musical tastes run to Broadway showtunes and New Country. These influences COULD sneak into my writing, now and then. I've taken courses in editing and am happy to beta for anyone who asks. Please point out any errors in my own material--honestly, sometimes editing your own work feels like performing surgery on your own child. It's best left to others.

Folks who used to hang out on the old DC message boards, you may already know me. Over there, I went by "dragonbat". I use that name over on A03. I also call myself estherdragonbat, dragonbat2006, and kinneret on various other lists. Any of you who might have helped me with my continuity research and who I did not acknowledge in an Author Note, Thank-You! Merci! Gracias! Todah! Spaceeba! Danke!

By the way, I'm now working as a freelance editor, in addition to beta-reading here. For anyone looking to publish original fiction (or non-fic) who wants to hire me, please PM and we can discuss.

Currently, I'm copy editor for Self Publisher! Magazine and doing technical writing for the OTW.

As part of my course work in Technical Communication I wrote a "best practices" manual for fanfiction. The manual is currently posted on my Dreamwidth and Livejournal accounts (dragonbat2006 for both) under the tags "fanfiction manual" and "playing in someone else's sandbox." Feel free to check it out, but remember that I'm giving suggestions only, not rules set in stone.

As One King To Another by Ichabod Grue reviews
Caspian comes to a realisation: The warrior who fought as Peter did in the battle with the Telmarine Army, short as it was, could not have been the same exhausted duelist who matched Miraz blow for bloody blow in the preceding duel ... unless ... unless the duel itself had been not much more than showmanship on Peter's part.
