Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter.

Okay, you know what, dangit? I'm going to re-do this bio, and it's going to be damned good.

:long pause as I search desperately for something to say:

Oh, it may take awhile, but once I finally think of something, it's gunna be good. Believe me. Yep. Really good. It'll be pumpkin pie good. Melted marshmallow good. Sean Biggerstaff good. But in the meanwhile, I will give you some quotes. Because then, through actual witty people, I myself will seem witty.

"To lose one parent is misfortune, to lose both looks like carelessness." -Oscar Wilde

"Hey, Albert? Good luck exploring the infinite abyss." "Thanks. Hey...you too." -Garden State

"Look, a school of whales!" "They look a bit old for school." "University, then." "University of Whales." -Yellow Submarine

"Lesbian? I thought she was a Pisces!" -Bend It Like Beckham

"When Cameron was in Egypt land...let my Cameron go..." -Ferris Bueller's Day Off

"We all have Hitler in us, but we also have peace and love. So why not give peace a chance for once?" -John Lennon

"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." -Ghandi

"Well, art is art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water! And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now, uh...now you tell me what you know." -Groucho Marx

"All right, that's enough of that. I wonder how many people have read down this far, and will realize that I'm quoting myself saying something extremely not funny. How harsh this looks in comparison to all my wonderful quotes." -Miss Effie

Oh, well, it looks like I lied...nothing witty for you. :yonks wittyness from Groucho Marx one last time:

"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside a dog, it's too dark to read."

Okay, seriously, I'm going to write something about my self. I live in a small town somewhere in the United States (even I don't know where!) (That was a a joke by the way...I'm making fun of my paranoia about giving info out via the internet). I do small town activities...like, stay in my house, in front of my computer, wishing I was doing something more exciting.

I love to act, although recently I've been doubting my skill. Still, it's fun, and I'm going to pretend like that's all that matters. (Remind me next time not to write a bio when I'm feeling depressed, okay?) I adore to read, a love which was probably instilled in me by my mother, who is a librarian. I like to write (I know, you never would have guessed!) but mostly it's for myself--so I can create fantasy worlds and live through the characters. Pathetic, huh? Well, if readers like it, then it's perfect. My favorite pairing at the moment is Lily and James, and I read a lot of squishy fanfics about them.

I also do synchronized swimming, but am absolutely awful at it (that is the truth, not just my Marvin the depressed anderoid attitude speaking...err...typing). Umm...I really like to eat, which is not good at all. But I figure I'm young and can afford it. I like to sleep and watch movies with mi familia.

I also have a fanatical obsession with the UK...they call my type an Anglophile, and I'm proud of it! Hopefully, either during college or afterwords, I will move to England and share a flat with two of my best mates.

I think that's enough for now. If any of you guys actually made it through that far. If you did, I commend you. May the schwartz be with you.

If you are finished with my fanfics, and have REVIEWED THEM ALL, then please go and read some of my friends/heros fanfics--Jerrygirl, The Flying Moose, Agi Vega, MyOwnLittleWorld, drowning goldfish, and whoever else is on my favorite authors list.

I'm going to be offt, actually. More important things to do...like read Lily and James fics and sigh a lot.

Pip-pip!

P.S. If you are tired of crap fanfiction sites that have too many bad stories mixed in with a few gems, please contact my friend, The Flying Moose, and see how you can help. We are in the works of creating our own fanfiction site that will hopefully have higher standards than most. It would really help if you excel at creating webpages. Thanks!
