Author has written 1 story for Romance.

Signed up for FictionPress yesterday (August 15, 2017) and...apparently there's a wait on uploading pictures (profile or otherwise). Lol. Pictures to follow when I can get them up.

I've been writing for quite some time. I started as a young girl, writing nonsense stories and NEVER sharing a one of them. In high school I was required to keep a "journal" in one of my English classes and the teacher said he'd never read it, so we could write anything. I wrote stories!

Then, sometime in 2003 (a long time after HS), I found a site called (I'm Jonayla over there) and started reading fanfiction based on Jean M. Auel's Earth's Children series, which I had been in love with for YEARS. Quickly, I decided to start my own story (After the Death Curse) based on her characters in her series...and it was someone on that site who convinced me to "write something original," so that "I could someday get published." Somewhere around that time I became interested (and obsessed with) in my grandfather's Native American background (I've narrowed it down to Shoshone, but I could be mistaken) and...Hannah's Homecoming is what came of that interest and the encouragement of my EC people!

Since then I've migrated to fanfiction.net and posted several fics (most frustratingly still unfinished), mostly Harry Potter (slash), some Twilight/Trublood (crossover), and of course, the EC story (which is 14 years in the making). You can find that nonsense under two different names (Sheri Contrary and Spirit of the Night Owl).

Sheri Contrary - https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2072456/Sheri-Contrary
Spirit of the Night Owl - https://www.fanfiction.net/u/2938142/Spirit-of-the-Night-Owl

For the years that I've been on ffn writing fanfiction, I was also working on my "book" (that's in quotes because of lack of publishing)...which IS finished (years ago now)...but I've done nothing with it. And so I've decided to slowly post it here...but ONLY if there's interest.

Other things about me...

I'm not putting my age, but my birthday is July 13, 1970. I hate updating my age every year, so...you do the math. I'm old.

I have three kids...they're all grown ups now!

I've always been told my background is..."English, Irish, Scotch, and Dutch...and French Portuguese, German, and American Indian." This is how the family said it. Funny thing to me is that that's not the order of things...maternally/paternally-wise. Lol. Oh well. I think, for Christmas this year, I'm going to do a DNA test...just for the fun of it...to see how much of what I was told was just LIES!

I'm an avid Harry Potter fan...and spent hours and hours on Pottermore when it was a thing (I was NightQueen21779). Like, so much time that I earned 300,300 points for my chosen House (Hufflepuff). Now, Pottermore pretty much shit! *sigh* ...but we had us a time...for a while. It was a brilliant five years! In fact, I'm so much a fan of the fandom that I'm going to London in three weeks time (September 7th) to go on the Warner Brothers Studio Tour...and meet online friends there. Sooo excited.

Okay now...go read my story...Hannah's story! And let me know what you think. I need to know or...I won't continue to post it. *wink*
Okay...so...Hannah's Homecoming is completely posted.

Circle C: Hannah's Homecoming reviews
This story takes place in 1875, in the American West—in a fictitious town that I've named Little Creek. This story is about Hannah Cooke—who returns to her parents ranch with her two Cheyenne-born children—and Black Hawk Walker. She thinks all is over now that her husband is dead, but...sometimes in life you get a second chance at love. And sometimes there is love at first sight.
