Author has written 39 stories for General, General, Song, Love, Life, and Family.

The name's Lexie. I am 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 years old. I'm American. I write because kidnapping people and forcing them to act out my fantasies is illegal.

If I do not explicitly say that one story is connected to another, then they are not connected. I use the same characters multiple times in different situations. The characters rightfully belong to me, so I reserve the right to use them however I please, and as many times as I want.
