Author has written 18 stories for Harry Potter.

"If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth." -- J.D. Salinger, "Catcher in the Rye"

While I have no wish to be Copperfield-esque, I will tell you this: I'm in my late twenties. I have a BA and MA in English, and I work as an editor at a major publishing company. Oh... and I'm obsessed with creative writing -- especially original fiction and Severus Snape fanfiction. :)
