Author has written 15 stories for Harry Potter, and Yu-Gi-Oh.
What to say. Hmm let me think now.
Let's start with the pen name then. the-hinotori. So chosen for one of my all time favourite shows, and consequently the reason I found this site, Gatchaman. Although, growing up, my first introduction was actually through the Americanised version Battle of the Planets. I love anime/manga and as a consequence so does my son.
My reason for writing fanfics, well that's easy. My imagination gets the better of me, and will often disagree with the original author. You get that on the big jobs.
Apart from fanfics I also write original stories for my son. I love reading and am more than happy to sit quietly somewhere and do so, when time permits. Among my favourite authors are Judith Tarr, Tad Williams, Amy Tan, JK Rowling and Georgette Heyer. Like Avidreaderalso, I too read Lord of the Rings (too many times to remember now) well before the movies. I wasn't quite as taken with the first one, but warmed to the others.
I reside in the capital of Australia, with my family and a disgusting amount of pets, just as well I'm a qualified Vet Nurse.
I hope you enjoy reading my stories, and all criticism is welcome. I'm a grown woman and can take it on the chin. Well at least I think can.
