Author has written 4 stories for Robin Hood BBC, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

At the moment I'm a (rather depressed) secretary in the Big Smoke, doing dental expenses by day and writing fanfiction by night, but in a couple of months time I'll be returning to the Yorkshire moors from whence I came.

Lately I have started a drive towards finishing off my 'odds and ends' whilst redrafting My First Novel (alas, not sponsored by Tomy.) Please see below for these bits of flotsam as and when they appear...

PS. A tutor once commented in the margins of an essay I'd submitted, 'Your use of apostrophes is ... interesting.' So this is a warning to all you grammar nit-pickers out there that no, this writing has not undergone the beta treatment. If my occasional lapses into 'interesting' apostrophes make your insides go squicky, then do feel free to volunteer your services!

Above Their Heads, Great Ships Passed by Random-Battlecry reviews
Ten years is a long time to wait. But at least she isn't alone. A very different look at the time between the ending of At World's End and the post-credits scene. Elizabeth/Jack, Elizabeth/Will, some Elizabeth/Barbossa, all mostly hinted at.
