Author has written 20 stories for Harry Potter.

I am a Brit, originally from the south, now living in the north-west. I am married with two teenage sons. I love cats. At the moment I have two young Chocolate Burmese, though I think of myself as having four cats as their predecessors are still very much alive in my heart.

I started reading the HP books to my kids, and then got hooked. I am interested in all forms of literature and love the creative use of language and word-play. I am also a closet TNG Trekkie and big Rickman fan.

Lost Perspective (1 - 7 ) started as a Severitus Challenge fic (Pre-HBP and, by definition, AU) and developed into a number of sequels as I grew into the characters and wanted to take them further. In each one I either introduce new characters or approach the story from a different slant or pov, though the constant theme running though and unifying all the stories is the endlessly enigmatic character of Snape.

New Perspective consists of two stories: THE CHOSEN and its sequel TAKEN ON TRUST. They are compatible with HBP but not DH, and give a version of Snape's life after HBP in which he is firstly tracked down by Hermione and later uses her as a go-between in his dealings with Harry. Ultimately SSHG.

The stories are a mix of angst, romance, hurt/comfort and my rather irreverent humour. No slash, no fluff, no PWP.

If you read them, please review and tell me what you think. Or email me. Thanks.

And heartfelt thanks to my wonderful betas Duj and Cecelle.
