Author has written 10 stories for Fantasy, Sci-Fi, General, and Politics.

Good morning, afternoon, evening, or whatever it is where you are. My name is Anne B. Walsh, though I'm known in the world of Harry Potter fan fiction as whydoyouneedtoknow (ironic, isn't it?).

Besides my extensive fan fiction repertoire (mostly in the massive Harry Potter AU known as the Dangerverse, now halfway through year 6), I have two original novels published and available through all major e-book publishers:

A Widow in Waiting, Volume I of the Chronicles of Glenscar, is a historical fantasy set in 1780's England and Ireland, with strong elements of both mystery and romance.

Homecoming, Volume I of the Tales of Anosir, is a more traditional fantasy, set on a world of my own devising called Trycanta, which has both magic and non-human races. The first seven chapters of Homecoming, as well as some of the extra material to help you learn about Trycanta, are published here.

Please enjoy the stories posted here, some of which have been published elsewhere, others of which have not or may not be. I'm trying to include a sample of all my various worlds, but I have a lot, so that can be difficult...

Simple Gifts reviews
It's Crystal's first Christmas on her own, and the question of presents is a knotty one. How will she ever figure it out? Perhaps a visit to the Lancaster Area Renaissance Festival, Holiday Edition, would be in order. After all, her story "ought to" end in annoyance and frustration... which means she's ripe for the help of the Legendbreakers!
