Author has written 18 stories for Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Tangled.
After recently looking up my name in Google search, I have discovered that people are confusing me with the actual published author, also named Rae Carson. It said so on the FAQ of her website at ht tp://w ww . rae carson .c om/faq/ . I am not her and she is not me. We are two separate individuals who just happen to love writing fantasy. (To be fair, I also love writing sci-fi, mystery, drama, and parody as well.)
It felt only right that I should contact her, (as we are each aware of each other's existence) and she responded to me! (Hello to you, Rae!!) She said she would have her publicist link this page to her FAQs.
Fun fact: When her publicist first wrote Rae's bio, the bio's OG draft said Rae got her start in the world of writing via Harry Potter fanfic [which was mistaken, in fact, and referencing my own stories.] I hope that's a significant sign of the quality of my work, to have been mistaken for another fine author. She told me that she couldn't, in good conscience, take credit for the hard work of another fellow author for which I am infinitely grateful! Thank you, Rae!!
Bonus Fun Fact: Out of morbid curiosity, I checked an internet archive. According to the Internet Wayback Machine, I've had the public Rae Carson moniker online for a number of years longer than she has. Weird, huh?!? But I digress! If you've wound up here from her page, for whatever reasons, I humbly thank you for your interest! And I hope you enjoy my stories!

I enjoy doing fan chat, fan art, fan fiction, composing Harry Potteresque music...you get the idea. Living out here in the American Northwest, there's not loads to do... I'm a latecomer to the Potter franchise; until April 2004, I was a certified card-carrying member of the Harry Potter Loathers Society. Then I actually READ the books...facepalm The rest is history! In college, I wrote fiction for a published scifi zine so I know more than a bit of what I'm doing here...
All I ask is that you give my work a read, and let me know what you think. I'm open to CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, but if you have loads to say, please use my email on this page. I have a wide variety of work, as I write in just about every genre.
Many, many people have repeatedly asked me where I get my ideas, and how I am able to write about Harry the way I do. In a rather blanket way, I feel it only fair that I reply. Honestly, however, there is no single answer for this question. And I must unequivocally state it is definitely more inspiration than personal talent or ability. In other words, I don't write these stories: THEY write ME. So I suppose in some ways, especially since it was not me who created Harry Potter, it feels nearly...arrogant to call these stories "my writing", but for the sake of argument, that's how I shall refer to them. Here are just a few of the resources/reasons from which my imagination springs:
I would like to think one can find inspiration in anything, even amongst the bad--for without it, one would never be able to truly appreciate the good they experience. All we need to do is look with the right attitude.
How to tell if you are a real writer: (Stolen from LaTashaMalfoy, with some minor changes!)
1. You get extremely grumpy and unpleasant if there is more than a 12-hour break between the times that you're sitting at your computer writing.
2. You sometimes act out your story ideas by yourself.
3. If you don't have your laptop, you are begging desperately for it.
4. You occasionally speak with adverbs such as 'wistfully' or 'reluctantly'.
5. You get super duper excited every time your fanfic gets a new review.
6. You live off of sugar and caffeine (And chocolate.)
7. You constantly speak in third person or past tense.
8. If someone bugs you while you're writing, you either completely tune them out or jump up and pounce on them until they leave.
9. You bring either your laptop or your notebook EVERYWHERE.
10. Your favorite sentence to hear from a person is "Can I read it" when they are talking about your stories.
11. Plot bunnies multiply in your head faster than tribbles.
