Author has written 5 stories for Newsies.

Ah.. I see you've stumbled across my profile. Too bad it's not very exciting.

In the Newsie world, I'm known as Sprints, so you can call me that. I'm 17 years old, and my life is at all times either annoyingly busy, or annoyingly dull. But I make it through.

So... I'm a part of this site because I loooooove Newsies, and all things related to Newsies, including fanfiction. It is my favorite movie of all time, and I don't care what anyone says about it. Ha!

I also have an unhealthy obsession with the two episodes of Roundhouse I have ever seen.They're awesome. MUST HAVE MORE ROUNDHOUSE. Sadly, Nickelodeon doesn't have reruns. But if you know a way I can get some episodes, please contact me. Or I'll go into withdrawal. And you don't want that, do you?

My writing comes in spurts. Sometimes it flows from my mind to the pen to the page, just like that. Other times I have to battle my brain to produce a single paragraph, sentence, or even word. So I never really know when I'll be finished with my next story.
Oh.. and I'm a one shot author, if you haven't noticed. That's pretty much all I write.

My stories:
"Patrick" One Shots
(Lovingly called so because I don't even know who narrates them. I can't stress this fact enough.So I just call him Patrick, as we don't know who Patrick is.)
I Never Cry Anymore
Beautiful

Other Stories
I'm In Love (featuring a surprise narrator, Jack, and a small OC) (one shot)
Perfect Aim (featuring Snipeshooter, Jack, Les, and a little bit of Race) (one shot)
Something To Leave Behind (featuring Jake and some OC's from his past) (five chapters)

I might as well thank my cousin, Queenie, and my friend, Chattie, for reading my stories, giving me helpful hints, and just being all around awesome buddies. You guys make me laugh.. the highlight of my day is our daily msn conversations.

Oh, by the way! Thanks for clicking on my name! It must mean that I've either left a review on your story, which means I liked it, or you've read one of my stories, which means I like you. Haha. So yeah.. thanks.
