Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.

NOTE (2013) - To those of you who have expressed concern over my story O MINE ENEMY, I want to extend a sincere apology for having not updated in so long. Despite appearances, I have never considered this story abandoned. In the past several years, I have gone through international moves, unexpected life events, and grad school, causing me to make other things in my life a priority over this story. I have, however, mapped out the remainder of O Mine Enemy, and I do periodically review and add to my notes. Now that my life is settling down, it is only a matter of getting back into the writing habit - easier said than done, I am discovering! I want to thank all of my readers from the bottom of my heart for not sending me mean or nasty reviews as I have seen left on some stories that have lagged. I'm so proud that I have such polite, concerned and loyal readers! If you have any comments or suggestions to help me get started up again, please don't hesitate to write. The more I am reminded that I still have readers wanting to follow my story, the more motivated I become.

Hi to anyone who is reading this! I have been lurking around fanfiction sites (primarily ff.net and potionsandsnitches.net) ever since I finished reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and wanted more! It's so fun to find gems of stories by truly talented writers. I read so many stories about Snape and Harry (my favorite duo, barring slash) that I think I exhausted the pool. So I figure...if you can't find more of what you want to read, write it yourself:) I've been doing that for a while now, just starting to post. Hope you'll read it and tell me what you think!

Just FYI - Some little tidbits about me that might affect what you read in my Harry Potter world:

1. I love what I am, but I'm sorry, it's not British. I'll use the terms that I know, but if not everything is exactly the way you Brits out there like it, I'm sorry. I'm focusing more on the content of my story, and I hope you'll still enjoy it.

2. I have two jobs and go to school. So I write as often as I can and I have a schedule for myself, but I can't promise a specific length or timeline for updates...each week is a little bit different.

3. I don't hold stories ransom for reviews. Review it or not, if I post it here, I'll finish it here. But like any author, reviews do make me happy. :) As much as I like to write anyway, nice and/or constructive reviews put a big goofy grin on my face and make me want to finish the next chapter even quicker so I can read more of them. Hehe...reviews are like my chocolate. ;)

4. None of my stories will feature slash. 'nuff said.

Ok, if you made it this far, stop reading my profile and get to the story! Snape's more interesting than I am, anyway. He's got that great dark sarcastic thing going for him.
