Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter.

I'm an aspiring - i.e. wannabe ;-) - writer from Germany who's hoping to get published one day (given I ever have the guts to send something off). I've started writing "In This World For You" to overcome a writer's block that I've had with my own material. The writer's block is no more, alright, but now it seems I can't concentrate on my own stuff until I get all of this story out of my system.

I got hooked on HP fanfics a couple of years ago, but I never bothered to write any myself, because I felt I had nothing to contribute to the perfect source material. But then the idea for ITWFY started nagging me and just needed to be unleashed. And your kind feedback definitely helps with the motivation and all :-).

Thanks for reading, thanks for caring.

Author's Notes:

- In This World For You
Some of my readers have already expressed their worries about me neglecting this story one day. Let me assure you that this is not going to happen. I may not always be able to update regularly, but with a full-time job and all, life sometimes gets in the way of writing. However, I enjoy writing this story very much and have no intention whatsoever of abandoning it before everything is told. Promise!

- Three Seconds
Yes, I might actually write a sequel to this one one day (truth be told, I have actually started one already LOL), but I don't know when I'll ever put it up. If I ever put it up. I'd suggest you add me to your "author alerts" if you want to be notified of an update :-).
