Author has written 15 stories for Harry Potter.

Quick Note: Well, I did it! I have pulled down Renaissance and am now in the process of reposting the reviewed and corrected version. If you have already read it you won't see a lot of changes until they slowly creep in at the end of part two and then from the first two chapters of part three it is a complete rewrite. I had painted myself into a very boring corner and was going to toss the whole thing but aftr talking to people, I managed to take the story to where it had to go so I hope you all like what I did with it.

I also have to send out my profound thanks the the BeST, Zarathustra46 for her constancy and friendship over the years and Rachie who is a fantastic friend and who weilds a mean purple pen. Without their support, I wouldn't bother. That may sound really sucky but believe me, those two are life savers in the best sense of the word and I really can't thank them enough.

Sadly, for you Harrycat followers that means he will have to hang in there for a while longer but he is not forgotten and will return, I promise.

By the way, check out my avatars, they are so cute! We went to National Australia Zoo in Canberra and took some fantastic photos amongst the muff shots and curses. You will NEVER see my peacock shots, ever! (colours are pretty though, LOL.) The person who invented the digital camera needs to be cannonised, I LOVE taking photos and I am so bad at it! Now, anyone can shoot away to their heart's content and it doesn't cost a thing to process the shots even when they are just a blur of blue, green and brown. (The peacock moved very fast.)

Regards

Les
