Author has written 12 stories for Fantasy, and Romance.

All the stories that I've posted here are mine and are, thus, copyrighted to me!

My stories are FREE to all who want to read them and I plan to keep them that way!

I do not plan to ever sell them through any media.

Any and all offers to publish them will be reported.

If you find any instances of my stories being sold online, please inform me.

Thank you! :)

My pen name is pronounced - "Sa" (as the "sa" in "salute") and "ti" (like saying the word "tie"). Just in case anyone was wondering how that was pronounced...

I am a native of Belvedere, SC (which is located pretty much just across the state line from Augusta, GA - the home of the Masters golf tournament, for those golf fans out there). I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina - Columbia (the original USC). I got a degree in anthropology (that's the study of man, where he came from, and where he's going - NOT dinosaurs, that's paleontology, which I had actually once thought about studying) and still really want to work in a museum. I've been married to my high school sweetheart for eighteen years now. We have a daughter who is twelve. I'm forty (OMG!) and a stay-at-home mom. We're a Navy family and are currently living in FREAKIN' HAWAI'I!! (No, it's not as fab as you'd think; Honolulu's really just like any other major US city...yes, there's nice weather, beaches, and tons of touristy stuff to do here but there's way too much traffic and it's expensive as heck!)

I almost exclusively write fantasy and the vast majority of that's romance (or at least have romance in them). My stories range across all ratings with most being "T". I plan to eventually post a lot more stories (I have quite a list to choose from) and may end up putting up at least one of my big stories which I wrote in high school - I've written four of them but they all need major revisions. I've had many story ideas come to me in the past few years but I have been unable to finish most of them...and some could never be posted due to their mature content. However, I've been writing stories since sixth grade - that's thirty years of writing - I'm sure I can find plenty of stories that are acceptable to be posted here, though most of the oldest of my stories need a lot of editing since they were very "young" stories. And I’m planning to try to get to those at some point to see which I can fix.

Writing update (21 APR 2022)
"Trusting the Revenant" is now longer than my three shortest completed full-length stories and it's only at chapter 12! I'm expecting it to land about 8k words shorter than "Blood of the Galynels" after all the edits (which means I'll have *added* over 10k words). I've split one really long chapter (would have been like 9.1k words had I kept it intact), so that means the story is now a chapter longer than I'd originally said and there's a chance two others might get split if editing them makes them longer than 7k words. I'm grateful to the two people who have favorited my new story so far, as it lets me know some people are enjoying it - so thank you! :) Because editing is going well, there are no delays in weekly posting (I've finished editing through chapter 18). Writing on the sequel is going so-so (I'm on chapter 7 of it and that's between a third and quarter done). I'm glad I'm not rushing, though, as little things I want to happen in the story keep popping up in my head that will help flesh out the world more and I totally altered a major event that happens to make it simpler (at least in my opinion). Hope all who read this are healthy and safe!

Currently posting - "Trusting the Revenant" (fiction, romance/fantasy, rated M - for language, adult situations, and mild violence)

Summary - Safondra thought there was only mold and rot in the abandoned wing of the palace, until a shadowy entity makes itself known. Is he really the spirit of a dark sorcerer, or just someone playing an elaborate prank on her? Once she knows the truth, can she trust him? Or is he even more of a threat than the nobles out to take over the kingdom?

Author's note - This story came to me at the end of October last year and just absolutely had to be told. I don't think I've ever written so much so fast for any story. And that's despite the fact that the story changed drastically at least twice and went through literally half a dozen versions before I settled on the one that worked for me. What's better, I have the potential for at least three sequels with this story! Barring any unforeseen events - moving, storms, illness, the end of the world, etc. - I will be posting at least one chapter weekly! I do hope you enjoy. Leave me a review if you do! :)

To keep more up-to-date on what's going on with my writing (when I'm actually writing), go to my LiveJournal page where my username is Lenaeslynn. You’ll get lots more information on my stories and their progress.

I'm almost always writing something (or trying to, at the very least) and I've got lots of stories waiting in the wings for the right moment to be finished.

I love twists and there are usually a few in my sit down, buckle up, and prepare for a few shocks along the way!

I do hope you enjoy all my stories. I love reviews, so please give me one if you like one of my stories! And feel free to shoot me a PM...I'll be glad to hear from you. I'd love to hear questions, comments, and even suggestions!

Information regarding cover art for my stories -
"Dragon's Gift" - art courtesy i-r-annet @ deviantART and used with permission, though I did (poorly) repixelate the background to blue myself
"The Princess and the Swords" - art by me using an MS Word available clipart picture, so I assume I own those rights
"Emissary of Death" - art by me using a public domain picture (I could find no copyright info among several sites that used it at least) of a single poppy, repeated eight times

Book suggestions (updated) –
A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik (first of a trilogy, final book out in a few months) (the only YA on this list)
Written in Red
by Anne Bishop (first of an awesome five book series, plus there're three other books that expand on the series' world as well)
Three Mages and a Margarita by Annette Marie (first of an eight book series, plus there are three spin-off/interconnected series as well {one finished, one that has three books out, and the last will have its third book out soon}) (*note - this is an adult, slow-burn romance)
From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout (first of a series - four books out, plus the first of a spin-off prequel series as well) (*note - this is an adult romance)
