Author has written 4 stories for Once Upon a Time.

I have a passion for reading and have always wanted to try my hand at writing. Though I have quite a bit to learn and I am still figuring out my style, I am willing and eager to grow. I love fan fiction and have been reading it for over 10 years. I'm finally taking the plunge and finding the courage to publish my own fan fiction stories. As of now, all inspiration is Once Upon a Time, specifically Captain Swan. Thanks for checking out my stories, I hope they bring you some pleasure and entertainment.
