Author has written 12 stories for Harry Potter.

Hey there. I'm an Aussie and I've been trying my hand at writing since Nov, 2015. All of my stories so far have been Harry Potter SS/HG pairings as I love writing both characters. Just a warning that all stories are Mature 18plus and explicit. There are language warnings in pretty well all of them too.

My writing can best be characterised as plotty smut with a twist or two. Some have been nominated for awards. Some have received awards. I'm not very good with that sort of thing but if you find you enjoy them, please let me know. I do my best to respond to the reviews I receive.

I've published elsewhere as Desert_Sea or Desert Sea but my username was taken by the time I got around to setting up a profile here. I love feedback and suggestions as most of my stories have evolved with reviewer comments.

I would like to acknowledge the wonderful manip created by Grey Mournings that is now the cover image for 'Tango'.
