Author has written 5 stories for Phantom of the Opera, and Harry Potter.

Hello, the name is Sarah and I'm glad to meet you.

I'm a young female collage student with a vivid imagination and too much time on my hands. I live in the States, but after I graduate I plan to teach overseas in Ireland. I've been in love with the country for ages, and want a bit of adventure before I grow up (if I ever do...)

I love nature and animals, and have a pair of idiot cats who also double as my editorial staff (blame the grammatical errors on their ever-present desire to sit on my keyboard). I'm an artist and a poet, but my real passion right now is songwriting. I sing at any given opportunity, and play a couple of instruments to boot. I adore history and English, along with fuzzy socks, boys who read, and a good cup of hot coco.

I am a pretty decent editor (if I do say so myself), and love to collaborate with others, so if you are ever looking for a beta you should feel free to look me up.


As for my stories:

Of Lead and Silver and The Linen Road are two unfinished pieces based on Leroux's book, Phantom of the Opera. I have lost my motivation for finishing them, but they were interesting scratchboard pieces to try out.

How High the Moon is my brand-new baby, and my first Harry Potter fiction. The idea has been stewing around my head for quite some time now, and I thought it ought to be set free. It is the first time I have a really clear vision for an entire plot line, and I am deliriously excited about it!

Just a Piece of Glass is the working title of my newest brainchild. An offshoot of How High the Moon, it will be my second Harry Potter piece. Since I may wait until after Deadly Hollows is released before finishing this story it may not run exactly parallel to its precursor, but that also means that you don't have to read HHtM to understand this plot. Whether or not I end up posting the final piece will depend heavily on reviewer support, so if you are interested you should mention it in a review on How High the Moon.

Enjoy!
