Author has written 20 stories for Shakespeare, and Phantom of the Opera.

These days I am focusing my efforts on stories involving Richard III (alt history and paranormal for the most), and although I am no longer writing Phantom of the Opera fan fiction, I enjoy it very much when I see that the stories I've written are still being read. For that reason, I am keeping all the stories I've written either by myself or in collaboration with my good friend MadLizzy posted. Most of my stories are also available in book form through Lulu:

Kathy H D Kingsbury on LuLu

There you will find not only my works of fan fiction, but books relating to my other passions -- genealogy, the American Civil War history, and hopefully soon a collection of alt-history and paranormal stories inspired by King Richard III.

Thanks to all of you who still visit my stories and leave your comments.

Ma Mere reviews
This story takes place in the same alternate universe as "Sweet Dreams" but it didn't fit in with what I had in mind for the original story, so I've written it up as a separate piece. It is the first few days after Bosworth. While recovering from his wound, Richard gets an unexpected visit—from his mother. A bit of feel good fluff...
