Author has written 16 stories for Song, Romance, Love, Life, Family, and Nature.
Hello, and welcome to my stories. I'm Valerie Rutherford, self-published novelist. I'm a writer, a lover, and a dreamer.
Writing is my passion. I've been creating songs and stories as far back as I remember. I'm now writing a fantasy universe I call The Timeline, which I self-publish. This takes most of my creative energy, but I do occasionally write songs or short pieces for posting here. Once upon a time, I also posted a short novel called Reminds Me of Raspberries here. It was the first original story that I'd ever finished. However, it lacked in quality, and my personal connection to it was blaringly obvious. So, I took it down. I considered rewriting the story for posting, but somehow, that just didn't seem right. After much thought, I found the perfect way to include Reminds Me of Raspberries in The Timeline. You'll never see it posted here again, but someday, it will be reborn as a wonderful new creation!
If you'd like to know more about the writer behind the stories, or how my novels are progressing, check out my LiveJournal. I also have a Twitter account, that I reluctantly signed up for, but now find to be the easiest way to continually update people on what I'm doing. You can find info on my published books here. Check out my fandom list and give me some recommendations, if you have time. I also occasionally post fanfiction (mostly Harry Potter and Degrassi) at Fanfiction.net.
Please check out the writing of my friend, Shiloh Fire. She's an amazing writer with a ton of wonderful stories.
If I've read some of your stories, and you'd like me to beta for you, drop me an email. This goes for fanfiction as well, though I'd have to be familiar with the fandom.
Feel free to email me with questions or comments. I love hearing from my readers, and I check my email quite often. And please review. That's where my motivation comes from.
Love, Valerie Rutherford
