Author has written 19 stories for Harry Potter, King Arthur, Descendants, 2015, and Pendragon.
So, because I am paranoid about identity theft, you may call me Henria, Henny, Henny Penny, Penny, Hen or Sownbinder.
Not only am I paranoid, I am a HUGE nerd. I mean big. Not only do I read constantly, but I play video games when I am not reading or taking care of my kids. If I am not reading, playing video games or taking care of my kids, I am writing fan fiction. I had an idea for a fan fic once and stayed up the whole night to write it out. I actually did not sleep for two nights before I was caught up on all the ideas in my head.
In fact, the story behind my pen name is nerdy in itself. I used to play EverQuest. I played it all the time. I had people who I've never seen and I called them Auntie or Uncle. That is how much into this game I was. If I could play it now, I would. I love that game. My first character was a Wood Elf Druid. I named her Henria. I really enjoyed the name because it was different. I didn't want to go with the usual Henrietta or be a rebel and name a girl character Henry. So, I pulled Henria from where the sun don't shine. When I was allowed a surname, I chose my favorite spell as my last name, Sow and Bind. And now, that name is my preferred pen name on the internet.
My taste in fan fiction is mainly Harry Potter. 'Oh no, one of THOSE fan fiction writers...' Bear with me! I just think that it is fun to make everyone suffer even more than they did in the books. Slytherin! And plus, I am older now and wish for a bit more teen aged raging hormones. I am unique like that. :D
Thank you! *Takes a bow*
I am not paranoid about you knowing where I live. I am from Alaska. I have lived here most of my life. I did a 4 year tour in the US Marine Corps. So, I guess I am just some Jarhead. :D I had a lot of fun meeting new people and all that jazz. Other than the 4 years I was away, I have been rooted in Anchorage, AK since I was born. And I wouldn't change it.
I do hope that you enjoy reading my fan fiction! :D
Henny, that lucky Penny!
After ten years in the making, Outsider on the Inside has finally finished. Henria Sownbinder was a big part of me growing up and I hope that Potterheads continue to love her like I have. So, I am going to pat myself on the back! *Pats back* Thank you to everyone who supported her. I hope that you enjoyed Henria as much as I did! :D
I have fallen farther down the hole. I am on Tumblr now. I am rubbish at it, but I always available to answer questions or talk about Harry Potter. I also have fic rec lists on there that you might find enjoyable. You should check them out. My name there is henriasownbinder. I tried to make it easier for everyone. :D
Some of you may have noticed that I did update a few of my W.I.Ps. I am not totally at a point where I can write all the time. I have bought a home with my husband and will be moving here in the next couple of weeks. Then I will be organizing said home. Not only that, but I am pretty sure that my brothers were just born assholes. And one of my cousins passed away. So, October has not been the best month so far! I am struggling with even thinking through my daily activities. I sincerely wish that I was able to think up a plot or complete sentences, but I am at a loss for words. Younger cousins are not suppose t leave this world before you and I am having a hard time processing what has happened. I want to be able to write. I want to bring some light to people who read my words, but I can't. Not right now. It sucks and I resent myself for it. But, it is my hope that whoever is reading my stories and waiting for updates can understand that I am going through a hard time. And they will, hopefully, be able to appreciate what I have here for now. And when I am in better health, I will update. Because I don't half-arse anything. I just need time.
I wanted to give everyone an update on my situation. Because as a person who is following me, you deserve to hear the truth. You followed me for a reason and I just wanted to let you know that I am not just leaving you hanging. I am just very sick with sadness, anger, anxiety and a bit of depression. So, thank you if you understand. And I am sorry if you don't accept this. I am fighter, so I am fighting my way out of this. I promise. Stay safe and as always...
Henny, that lucky Penny!

Hello my readers/fans!
After two awful years I am Henny Penny again. I know most of you don't care and that is okay. I am just letting you know that I am happier than I have been in a very long time. I...have accepted that these people have left my life...so that is a good start. Healing will take longer, but I am in a most excellent place. I have even punched out a chapter for a fic. A Descendants fic, but it is a fic, right? I just haven't been able to get back into the HP fandom. I am thinking I just need to get this out of my system before I can even begin to think about my HP WIPs. I know that isn't why you are following me. And I kind of really feel bad about it. I was super excited to go on those journeys with you all. But it seems I need a break from Harry, Hermione and Ron. Which sucks because that is my childhood, but I am okay with stepping away from them for a little bit. Plus, maybe I can think of plots without the added pressure that I put on myself. So, maybe when I do start posting HP stuff again, it will be completed and can post more regularly. I really wish I had better news. And I will completely understand if you stop coming to my little corner of the internet.
I hope you can forgive me though. And do come back when I do start posting again. Thank you for your loyalty. You have all been amazing! :D Stay safe! And as always...
Henny, that lucky Penny!
