Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter.

Name: Holly

Age: 64

Location: Kent Island, Maryland, USA

What I do to earn : Retired Dental Hygienist (42 yrs)

What I do for fun: Ride scenic trains, spoil the grandkids, laugh, and write and read HP fan-fics, of course.

Favorite movies: (Besides Harry Potter) Comedies and musicals. I know that's schmultzy but it's the truth. Don't like scary flicks and have enough drama in my life, I don't need to watch other people's problems. There's not enough space to actually list them all.

Favorite TV shows: Sponge Bob Squarepants. Ghost Hunters and Celebrity Apprentice (my favorite situation comedy) and I can't explain why, having said I don't like scary movies, but those shows fascinate me. Project Runway, Dancing with the Stars andTRUE BLOOD! plus my 'old favs' Farscape, and Beauty and the Beast.

Favorite foods: Practically anything except spinach, tea, red wines & hard licquor (anything aged in an oak cask) as I'm allergic to the tannins. I love to cook, but hate the cleanup. Chocolate! Soft shell crabs, a good steak (med rare), angel food cake, crisp bacon, milk, peas, sauted chicken livers, root beer floats, catfish, salmon, hot fudge sundaes, caviar. Like I said, practically anything.

Favorite Harry Potter moments:

1st place: the whomping willow scene in PoA, where Hermione grabs Harry by the shirt and jerks him outta frame. A classic WB/Chuck Jones bit. I roared.

2nd place : in GoF when Alan Rickman (Snape) pulls up his sleeves before pushing Ron and Harry on the back of the head in study hall. Also, when he whomps them, each, on the back of the head with the study booklet. That's probably where that production picture originated, where Alan Rickman is laughing and Mike Newell is there and the boys are smiling. Loved the 'repeat' in OoP.

3rd place: in PoA, when Harry and Hermione come running back to the hospital wing and meet Dumbledore outside the door; "Well?" "We did it!" "Did what?...Goodnight."

4th place: In GoF, when they are unmasking Barty Crouch, Jr. and Dumbledore says something about 'now we know who's been stealing from your potion supplies, Severus' and Harry and Severus exchange looks, with Harry giving him an "I TOLD you I hadn't stolen anything!" expression and Severus just tightening his lips, no doubt biting back a ' you would if you had the chance, Potter' retort. Great little bit of business!

Favorite books: (besides Harry Potter) Biographies, Fannie Flagg's stories, Rita Mae Brown's 'Mrs. Murphy' mysteries and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Hashimoto" by Jack Douglas. Humorous books; Jon Winoker's 'Curmugeon' series, Calvin & Hobbs and Bloom County collections. Books by Philip Gulley ( 'Front Porch Tales', etc. EXCELLENT books, by the way) I know I'll think of more later. And now I'm hooked on the "Dragonology" series. AND the "Sookie Stackhouse" series!!!!!

Hubby : Karl...43 years and counting.

453Kids: Michele (42) John (36) Grandkids: Katie (M -23), Summer (J - 16), Becky (M - 16)and Michael (J - 15).

Hometown: Annapolis, Md, but I was born in Baltimore. I came home to Annapolis from the hospital at 11 days old. I live across the Chesapeake Bay from Annapolis, but I still work there, about a block from where I grew up. Annapolis High '68. Temple University '70.

Favorite place to vacation: Cass, WV. (Don't get me started, I'll rave for hours!) 2nd favorite, Nashville, Smokie Mountains, Asheville ( I LOVE the Biltmore Estate ) and Franklin,N.C (gem mining). Disney World. Universal Studios, Orlando - I won a trip to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.!

Favorite quotes:

"Ya gotta learn to laugh, it's the way to true love." Michael/ John Travolta

"Come on Dover! Move yer bloomin' arse!" Eliza Dolittle/Audrey Hepburn/ My Fair Lady-Acsot Races scene

"You! My chambers, 10:00. You! 10:30. Bring a friend!" Sheriff of Nottingham/Alan Richman/Robin Hood- Prince of Thieves

"Remember what John and Paul said." "The apostles?" "No, the Beatles. 'All you need is love.' " Michael / John Travolta

"The scientific instrument hasn't been invented that can measure my indifference to that statement." Smart-assed comment made, by me, to a pompus windbag when I was PMSing.

Silence is Golden...Duct tape is Silver.

Get in...sit down...shut up...& hold on!

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely, in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather; to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO! What a ride!"

I was thinking of going on a diet and starting an exercise program, but I came to my senses, washed my mouth out with chocolate, and then took a nap. I'm feeling much better, now.

Live your life, such, that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders and says: " AW, SHIT! . . She's awake!"

Ambitions in life:

Travel to England ( and do the Harry Potter Tour ) and Tuscany. With a ride on the Orient Express in between!

Have a waist, not a equator. ( my idea of exercising...when I'm running late. HA!HA! )

On my tombstone: No regrets, lots of laughs, see 'ya! OR Look me up when you get here! ( I figure anyone who would visit my grave, I'd like to see again)

Sev at Fifty, Still Sexy After All These Years by Emilie D reviews
Since Severus escaped from Deathly Hallows and is a Big Man in these stories, we'll see what he's up to at age 50, and what happens when Lucius Malfoy is released from Azkaban. It will make no sense unless you've read previous Severus & Zelda stories.

The Return of a Sexy Animagus by Emilie D reviews
If you love Sirius, DO NOT READ! If you love Snape, this is the right place, though you won't see him at first. You'll see Sirius, tho. Post-DH, pre-Epilogue. It's a ridiculous tale. But Snape finally gets his due, despite the title.
