Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter.
I used to write fanfiction years ago, but have been busy doing other creative endeavors since then (including writing magazine articles and two non-fiction books, all published). But then Harry Potter caught me in his snare and I just had to write a sixth year fic, which I THOUGHT would be my one HP story. Unfortunately for the rest of my life (writing fanfic takes time away from other things!), "The Refiner's Fire" led to a sequel, "The Time of Destiny" which then required ficlets and another novel ("Now and Forever" also complete) to fill in the gap between "Destiny's" end and its epilogue. "The Time of Destiny" begins literally minutes after "Refiner's" ends. You'll need to read "Refiner's" first to make sense of "Destiny." "Destiny's" epilogue tells you what happens to the main characters for quite a few years in the future.
I have written two original novels which are now on Amazon dot com - go to Amazon and do a search on "Lynda Sappington." My novelsre the first two in a hero-quest/journey-type fantasy trilogy. The first book is titled "Star Sons: Dawn of the Two" and the second one, "Star Sons Book 2: The Gathering Alliance." If you read them, please post reviews on Amazon, which are supposed to raise my search engine status! Thanks!
I wasn't a "shipper" when I started writing these fics, but from writing them, I've become a serious H/G shipper - I just cannot see Harry with anyone else as the love of his life, but JKR didn't develop Ginny nor their relationship enough in canon to make it believable that she was his soul mate - so I did it myself.
I'm originally from the South, have lived in the Midwest for many years, have been married over 40 years, have two grown and married children, and am old enough to be a grandparent to the Trio. I'm also a huge fan of Dan Radcliffe, who I believe embodies the Harry of the books perfectly. The "steely-eyed Harry" posters from Goblet of Fire and from the Deathly Hallows posters are exactly the way I envision my Harry -- older, battle-hardened, resolute.
