Author has written 38 stories for Harry Potter, and Torchwood.

Hi there. I'm Maurice, known as SnorkackCatcher on various Harry Potter sites. A computer programmer by trade, HP fanfic writing is among my hobbies.

Oh yes, concerning that HP fanfic -- here's a complete list of my fics including the ones that aren't on FFN (all oneshots except for one novel-length "Tonks's First Case" mystery story, with a fairly broad range of subjects and characters).
