Update 6/24/2013: Crossing the Finish Line made the Top 10 List of Most Favorite Stories on The Valent Chamber

Thank you for stopping by my little corner on FP. I've enjoyed writing since I was a little girl and have written several stories over the years. Crossing the Finish Line will be my first attempt at getting one my stories published. My main purpose of posting on this site is to receive feedback from readers on how to improve my writing. It also lets me know if my story is heading in the right direction. I noticed that I have a very large number of readers, but only a fraction leave any comments, so it's hard to tell if people like/love/hate my story. I can't do this without you guys, so please, please, please if you read a chapter, be kind enough to leave a quick review. We writers can be pretty insecure about that type of thing, so please tell me how I'm doing. Click on Cast of Characters, if you would like to see pics and descriptions of each of the main and supporting characters.

In addition to writing original works, I enjoy writing fanfiction, particularly stories about Tara Thornton from True Blood. So far, I've written several short stories dedicated to her on www.fanfiction.com, mostly M rated. My author name on FF is the same as on here, wisedec4u. So if you're in the mood for something different, check my stories out and tell me what you think.

To those of you who have left reviews and added me to your Fav Authors and Story Alerts, I truly appreciate your support. I hope you will continue to follow Crossing the Finish Line. I will be updating real soon so stay tuned!
