Author has written 7 stories for Historical, Romance, War, Nature, and Supernatural.

My name's Pearl. I read. I write. I draw. When not writing, I enjoy living in my local libraries, and bouncing around in my house singing Duffy, Adele, and Amy Winehouse songs as loudly as possible. I'm currently attending university, and I hope to one day teach English as a second language in Germany.

I love music (pretty much any kind, my favorite band being Apocalyptica). I love history. I love vampires. I love romance. I LOVE historical vampire romances. I love movies, especially the old stuff (I'm talkin' OLD HOLLYWOOD, people). I loves me some smut, occasional slash, and once in awhile, fluff.

What I'm Working On:
Week: IS BEING RE-WRITTEN! :D
Frostbite: In the works. Stay tuned!

What I'd LIKE to Work On:
Heaven Ain't Close: Is crying out to be worked on. When I actually get some writing done, I'll look at it. I PROMISE!

On a final note, I love good, constructive criticism. I do not, however, like stupid, meaningless flames. Don't like my writing? Then tell me how to improve, not that you find it personally offensive. Thank you.

Goodnight Saigon by effervescent-sentiments reviews
Dear Jennifer. I write you letters in my head, sometimes. Things of this nature, in greater detail. Horrific things I could never relive on paper. Feelings that I’d never be able to tell you to your face. Just know that this is what you love. Lewis.

Week reviews
Ellie Fitzpatrick was fed up with the cold hand life had dealt her. She just wanted to die and she would have. If not for a mysterious Native American man saving her sad hide at the last minute. Full summary inside. Rating subject to change.

Mother's Gift reviews
A poem about our Mother Earth and how we're hurting her. I was going to post this on Earth Day, but wasn't quite happy with it then. Now that its finished, I hope you enjoy the final result.

A poem about the American Civil War. No real specific subject, just about the whole war in general. R&R!

A Nation Torn reviews
Short stories about people in the American Civil War, from soldiers to civilians. All stories just under 200 words due to writing them on Ficlets. More on the way.

Jack the Ripper: Now and Forever reviews
The last letter written by Jack the Ripper before he disappeared off the face of the earth. This is fiction. So a lot isn't true, of course. Don't kill me if you hate it.
