Author has written 5 stories for Downton Abbey.

I’ve always been a writer. When I was eight, I wrote a story called “Princess Zelda”, which was a plagiarized mixture of Moses and Cinderella, and begged my mother for weeks to take it to the local library and get them to publish it. Her gentle refusal to do so, while setting my career as an author back a few years, did not stop me from continuing my writing. I have since learned that there are a few more steps between pencil copy and library.

I discovered period drama and devoured it, and then I found Downton Abbey. (After all six seasons were over, of course; I’m not exactly on the cutting edge of entertainment!), and one day after binge-watching it all twice and looking for anything else I could find on the show, I stumbled upon FanFiction. I’ve since read hundreds of stories, followed some amazing writers down the rabbit hole, and finally decided to take the plunge myself. What an amazing world!
