Thanks for stopping by my profile -- I'm Susan.

I've dabbled in fanfiction on and off for years. In fact, I actually my first fanfic stories before I knew what fanfiction even existed. Someday, I'll transfer those stories to the computer and post them.

I've always enjoyed writing... I do it in my professional life as a business writer and I write fiction for fun. My pen name here on ff.net is "Roisin Dubh." Roisin (pronounced ro-SHEEN) is actually the name of a character in Darkstar Rising (my first novel!). If you're interested in knowing more, you can find it at Xlibris.com and Amazon.com. Right now, I'm rewriting and editing a new manuscript that I'm pretty excited about. Hopefully early next year (2016), I'll be ready to do something with it.

Because of my original fiction, I've been away from fanfic for a bit, but when I do write it, I don't have one particular fanfiction area I like to write in... I've written fics for LOTR, Harry Potter, Three Musketeers, Supernatural, Four Brothers, Blue Bloods, Star Wars and more. I go with what inspires me a the time. I also try to use fanfic as an incubator to work on areas of my writing that need more polish.

As for reading fan fic? I don't have as much time to read as I might like, but I like to read anything that's well-written. I don't write slash, but I don't object to reading it from time to time... creativity takes people in different directions and far be it from me to stand in the way of anyone's inspiration. But one thing I don't like is stuff that's written simply for shock value. If you need to be graphic as part of your story, fine. But I don't want to read something that is just one gratuitous sex scene (or violence) simply because the writer wants to freak people out. Put your efforts into a good plot and story line. Really.

I hope you enjoy my stories... and I'd love to get your feedback. Constructive feedback is always welcome. Sarcasm is not.

Hope to hear from you!
