Author has written 12 stories for X-Men, Secret Garden, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Merlin, Sherlock, and Supernatural.

I've been a member of this site for at least six years and had a blank profile the whole time, which is weird, because I totally visit other people's profiles...

Anyway, I enjoy writing and I enjoy a variety of fandoms. I like Supernatural stories a lot right now but have read a lot of different kinds of stories in the past.

If I try to correct your grammar in a review, please don't be offended. I'm an English teacher so it's kind of in my nature. If you find mistakes or plot holes or nonsensical things in my writing please let me know as I tend to write pretty fast and post things almost as soon as I get them finished--I would never post something completely unedited, but sometimes I publish sooner than I likely should and I have never used a beta.

Please review my stories, even if you have negative things to stay. I am trying to work on description in my stories--I am crap at writing description, but to be honest I often skip descriptive passages in books because I find them boring, so I guess I just don't value description enough to bother with it much. I know I should get passed this, though...

Some words I try to live by (or more accurately, write by), in spite of what I said above:

Elmore Leonard's 10 Tricks for good writing

  • Never open a book with weather.
  • Avoid prologues.
  • Never use a verb other than "said" to carry dialogue.
  • Never use an adverb to modify the verb "said”…he admonished gravely.
  • Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
  • Never use the words "suddenly" or "all hell broke loose."
  • Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
  • Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
  • Don't go into great detail describing places and things.
  • Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.
  • My most important rule is one that sums up the 10.

    If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.
