Author has written 6 stories for Romance.

Basic Author Info: Let's see...what to say? I am an African-American girl and I'm slowly trying to get a lot of stories about African-American girls out in the world (well, if you look at all the races of my characters in Quandaries of a Quirky Romantic and Nobody Said It Was Easy, you'll see a little UN of ethnicities). Writing is what I want to do with my life; hell, it kind of is my life. I have an annoying giggle and a tendency to cackle (cackle). I love sock. I'm a quirk, a random quirk, I'm probably most like Nadine or Jane. (Though I share a lot in common with the guys in my stories). I love nerds, I just do. And freckles on men. And lefties (I just think they're cooler than right handed people, I'm not really all that sure why). I'm sarcastic. I'm a little obsessed with Ireland and I LOVE sea turtles (Javier gets that from me). And...uh...I listen to a LOT of music (since I'm a musician's daughter and everything). I am a dork and I'm willing to admit it. I find my little brother pretty funny - don't tell him, it'll go to his head. I am an amazingly jumpy person. I'm really bad at grammar. I do a lot of weird things. I'm prone to rambling. And I have a kitten that seems to think that she is constantly at war...and that we (my family and I) are the enemy.

The Two Accounts: I am both Secretive and Analytical Calico on this website. Yeah, I forget which account came first, I think it was this one, but I've had two since the very beginning. Right now I only have one story up under Analytical Calico and it's My Undetected Canoodling. Here's the summary for it: The seemingly unrequited crush on your best friend, the perfect romantic cliche, and you know those always work out. However, when an evil older brother, mind games, and dirty little secrets are thrown into the mix, maybe this cliche isn't that perfect... Yeah, it's been my little secret baby, I suppose. I guess this kind of proves that I am a bit secretive; I wanted to see the kind of reception that Jane and Roth would get without my known persona being attached to it. Interestingly enough, a lot of the people that read me under this name found me under that one as well. It was pretty cool.

Update: o8.1o.14

Wow, I don't understand this site anymore. When did this all change? Also, did everyone I used to read leave this site as well? Where have we all gone? (Saying that, I know where I've gone, but has everyone else just had Life get in the way of everything? Or are there a lot of people that have just given up writing? How does one even answer these questions?) Also, how do you make the PM thingie work? Is SKoW over as well? God, I'm from the ancient era of FictionPress, it's obvious.

...Okay, I'm rambling. Though, I think revisiting this site has taught me something that I wasn't quite ready to learn...

Now I'm just being vague.

What I really wanted to say:

I woke to the soft sounds of Lulu crying in her sleep, her body rocking against the force of her sobs. Once again I was amazed at how quiet she was when truly sobbing, how carefully she could hide that pain, even in sleep. I reached over and rubbed her back, knowing from experience that she wouldn't wake from the action, but that it would calm her. the girls and I have no idea if she knows how often she dreams of her life before, and we are all a little afraid to tell her how often we wake to the sound of her nightmares. Sometimes it's tears, but others...the screams will forever haunt me, because I know that they are the echoes of screams that she once voiced. Screams and cries for help that went unanswered until she was brave enough to come to us with her problems.

Basically, I wanted to let you all know that I am still around, I'm still kicking, and I WANT to finish my FictionPress stories. Yet at the same time my writing has changed a bit over the years and I worry about ruining the flow. Also - and this is utterly terrifying - the more and more I write lately...the more I want to try to get published. Obvious, I know and I also know that that isn't the easiest thing in the world to do, but it IS my dream. I want you to know that I will be trying to finish these years old stories as well as working on new things and I hope that some of you will be willing to follow me on that journey. :) Mostly because you've been there for the beginning of it, oh faceless (but not completely nameless) readers, and your support and enthusiasm has been wonderful and courage inducing. And I just want to share with you guys. I don't know, it's something that this site has taught me. Before FP I didn't really share my stories with anyone. Moreover, in many ways, my dream of being a published writer has changed a bit: it's not just about me anymore, it's about you guys too. A part of me feels like every FictionPress writer that gets published is somehow standing up for this site and the readers that reside here. And even though I don't understand this site anymore, if I ever get published it will have so much to do with FP and the various ways that you guys have touched my life (and I've hopefully touched yours).

Anyway, I'm rambling. It's something that I do a lot. Just wanted to touch base.

Best wishes!

- Secretive.

Want to keep in touch? I now am on twitter under @quirkywhit and I have a new website...that I'm not really sure how to log onto anymore, since my computer has decided that WordPress is the devil site or something... I will be taking care of that problem soon-ish. :)
