Author has written 10 stories for Downton Abbey.

Me? Personally?

A twenty-something, city dwelling, tea swilling, classical music loving, Downton Abbey enthusiast. Engineer by education and a writer for fun.

I first discovered fanfic via NCIS in 2006. I’ve read on and off since, but went back to writing when I became preoccupied with the Carson/Hughes relationship. You can find me on tumblr as kissman91.

Always happy to chat about writing or anything else, feel free to send me a PM. =)
