So, who am I?
I discovered fanfiction in 2014 and started writing it myself in 2015. My first fanfic was Terri Botta’s Let Love In, and I felt I’d stumbled on the holy grail. I just finished reading the first four Sookie Stackhouse novels, and I was captured, but also disappointed at the direction the books were taking. I read every fanfic story I could, focusing on those with Eric/Sookie relationships. Sure, I dabbled in the occasional Godric/Sookie/Eric story, but I couldn’t turn away from the pairing that made such sense to me.
I ran out of stories that I loved and I got too impatient to wait for others. I had written fanfiction in my early teens, although I hadn’t know what that was, and I sat down one night and said, “Why Not?” I’ve been writing Southern Vampire Mysteries-inspired stories ever since.
If there’s one character I love, it’s Thalia. She is a warrior and will fight without apology for who and what she believes. She is my hero!
My writing has been constant since I started. I have dabbled in writing multiple stories, but I am afraid I’ll need to leave that to writers far more talented than myself. My single brain cell needs to focus on the story at hand. I believe in finishing what I started and barring flood, dread disease or other calamity, I’ll probably stick to the code, and write one story at a time, pushing chapters once a week, and sometimes doubling up on holidays.
I live in the United States, and I write in American (I won’t claim it’s English. It’s not). My stories will have a plot that includes detail, drama and generally a generous dollop of angst. I am a romantic, so there is a happily ever after at the end, because that’s how it’s meant to be!
I do convert stories to .pdf. I have three of the four major stories my Swimming series available for download in .pdf on my WordPress site.
Thank you for reading, and I look forward to chatting with you through reviews and comments. It’s a delightful companionship on the journey that is story-telling

Can’t believe this girl just started this January! She has a lovely writing style that makes me hope we will see many many works from her from here on.

Her first multi-chapter story kept me waiting anxiously for each posting. Even when things are going well for Sookie and Eric, this talented new writer creates her story on the edge of danger that keeps you wanting to know what happens next. She is on to the next story in the series and I am just as hooked. I recommend starting with Swimming to the Light so that you understand the nuances of Sookie, Eric, Thalia, Russell, Bart….and others as we revisit them in The Far Reach. Can’t wait.
