My name is Sara. I'm an American au pair (nanny) who has traveled to several countries and enjoys working with children while exploring the world. I am currently with my 3rd international family (16th in all), this time in Prague, CZ. I'm so excited. I love writing. Unfortunately, I don't write these stories. I just read, beta and critique them. I am an avid fan of the Harry Potter series, Bridget Jones books, recently the 50 Shades triology, and the Bones, New Girl and Big Bang Theory tv shows, and a few fanfiction writers. As I do have a degree in English and teach it, I am also available if you need a beta.
Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.
