What you don't need to know but are going to find out anyway...

I'm now a 30 year old wife and mother... I started this when I was 16, on fanfiction, made the switch to fictionpress when I was 18. I haven't been on here in many, many years... I had writers block. But I'm back! Given I have a very active 14 month old baby girl, and I work part time, I have limited time to write but I am in the stages of plotting the course of a new story... title still in the making.

I'm a wife and mother, as I said, and I also work part time at a high school, assisting students with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities to be included in mainstream classrooms.

Inspiration:

Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Laurens, Nora Roberts, Karen Robards, Francine Pascal, Thomas Harris, Lorri Wick, C.S Lewis, Mark Twain, the Bronte sisters (mainly Charlotte, a little bit of Emily, not so much Anne), Tamora Peirce, John Fowles, Anne Rice...

Myrika, Lord Iron-Balls, RockFan, October Rose... ah, what the hell - look at my favs page if you really wanna know.


Favourite Quotes:

"the journey may be long, but at least it will be mine."

"It is always nice to know what is polite, for then you can choose whether or not you will be."

"Coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad: whether from great personal success, or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen."

"When everyone is somebody, then no one is anybody."

"Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps, for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are and what they ought to be."

"My Karma ran over your Dogma."

"If you aim at heaven, you will get earth thrown in. If you aim at earth, you will achieve neither." - C.S. Lewis


MY OPUS:


"Protect Me From What I Want"

« EXTENDED SUMMARY »

So living with an incredibly rich, incredibly hot guy is the ULTIMATE dream, right? Wrong - especially if all that every one sees is a lie, and in actual truth your relationship with him is a fraud to throw unsuspecting grandparents and clinging would-be girlfriends off the trail. And added to this, you're hiding the biggest secret of all - your brother is dying of an incurable disease. So when everything gets thrown into the mix, half-baked as it is, you get the life of Silence O’Faoláin. "Oh god, protect me from what I want!" - FIN


"Darling, I Like You Very Much"

sequel to "protegez-moi de ce que je veux"

« EXTENDED SUMMARY »

After the shocking revelations and catastrophic disasters of her senior year at Hilton Academy, which ended in her younger half-brother’s death and her subsequent break-up with Gabriel, Silence is determined to move on. Moving to a small town just outside of Paris, France, with best friend Mary-Alice seems to be the best thing to do for the summer break at least. Will a new country, new faces and a new guy be enough to make Silence forget Gabriel? - FIN


"Once More With Feeling"

sequel to "Protegez-Moi de ce Que Je Veux" and "Darling, je Vous Aime Beaucoup"

« EXTENDED SUMMARY »

Having recovered somewhat from the trials and tribulations of her disastrous relationships, we rejoin Silence (who is now calling herself 'Rory', a bearable nickname derived from her first name, Aurora) for the final installment of her saga, entitled 'Once More With Feeling'... Has the sun set on Gabriel and Rory's chance for reconciliation? Are Gabriel and Rory as truly happy as they insist? If so, then why do they still share that special connection, that chemistry that finds them in more than one, erm… shall we say, compromising positions? Can they truly move on and forget about each other, or will they give each other one more chance, this time with more feeling? WRITERS BLOCK, DISCONTINUED


UNTITLED ROMANCE STORY

stand alone romance novel

« EXTENDED SUMMARY »

28 year old Abbi Scott has had a very bad day. Her landlord needs her apartment back, her work has just closed their doors for good, and her relationship is going nowhere with her boyfriend. Then she receives some unexpected news - her estranged father, who she's never met, has passed away and has left her
his belongings. Her presence is requested to go over his estate and reconcile it, in a small town in central Texas. With nothing else to do, why the hell not?
Nick Hale is the sheriff in Marble Falls, and from the day that Peter Scott dies its been nothing but trouble - break ins, vandals, and pressure from the neighbour to
speed up the deceased estate auction due at the end of the month - after all, Peter Scott doesn't have any living relatives. Then Abbi Scott arrives in town and turns
everything upside down. Its in Nick's best interest to help Abbi find the damn will so that everyone stops hassling him, and then she can sell the land and get out of
town... right?
