Author has written 3 stories for Fantasy, Spiritual, and School.

I'm a History/English teacher taking a break from teaching to be a stay-at-home mommy. Writing has been a passion of mine ever since I was a little girl. I've uploaded mainly fanfiction online, but I do have original works either completed or in progress. I'm working on adding more works as I look through them and edit as needed. Thanks for reading and any constructive feedback!

Favorite Writing Quote, referring to literature for children: "Since it is so likely that they will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage. Otherwise you are making their destiny not brighter but darker. Nor do most of us find that violence and bloodshed, in a story, produce any haunting dread in the minds of children. As far as that goes, I side impenitently with the human race against the modern reformer. Let there be wicked kings and beheadings, battles and dungeons, giants and dragons, and let villains be soundly killed at the end of the book. Nothing will persuade me that this causes an ordinary child any kind or degree of fear beyond what it wants, and needs, to feel. For, of course, it wants to be a little frightened." C. S. Lewis

Forgotten by VendettaSmiles reviews
He's surprised to find rock bottom isn't rock at all. It isn't the hard collision and sharp stop he always imagined. It's more the viscous black ooze at the bottom of a stagnant pond than the washed stone riverbed. ** Written for the prompt: Rock Bottom.
