Author has written 8 stories for General, General, Humor, and Romance.

Hello, those who've managed ot stay with me for X numbers of years. I now have a degree in English writing and are currently persuing my masters, but take heed; none of the works below were written with any sort of degree under my belt. I have improved, kids. It's just you don't get to see it.

Writing is my love, my life. My dirty, dirty mistress, etc. If you couldn't tell by looking at the timeline below, I update sparingly. I am driven by the muses when time comes. The muses have a tendancy to lie dormant for several weeks at a time, ride me for a few weeks, then leave again. I'm remain awriting whore. Like Angela from The Office, I being judged, hence my love of reviews. I keep them in a little folder in my email account, and I read them when I get sad or before I turn in writing projects to my professors so that, like Sally Field, I know someone likes me ("they like me--they really like me!"). I still laugh at people who leave anonymous reviews on AMOC, telling me I am racist because of its bare-bones summary. In both college and high schhol, I played varsity softball, but now as I am too old, I coach. In high school, I also was on the speech team and played the flute, both of which have no relevancies whatsoever to any of my stories except the ones written while in high school (which happens to be the majority of them, actually). I enjoy Mel Brooks' movies and investing myself too deeply in shows such as Chuck, Glee, and The Office. I'm also a big musical fan; I saw Idina Menzel in concert and had a long chat wiht Julia Murney, and therefore consider myself superior to most people.

I write because I want to entertain. If I was prettier, I'd be an actress because I love making people laugh. I write what I do because these are the stories I want to read. If you're looking for something deep and entertaining, I suggest Homer and Wilde. If you like fluff, Jane Austen, and pretty boys, we have a lot in common. Oh, and several stories here are terrible, terrible, terrible. Bad cheese. I wrote them in HS before I knew about things like not ending sentences with prepostions and not describing someone's eyes as "Two puppies." It's only here for posterity, so don't hold it against me (TWSS). And don't judge me for doing that. And don't leave me reviews saying "It's not completely terrible!" because I know you'll be lying and lying is aggrevating.

I'm working on a sequel to AMOC.

I really wish I had more focus. Send me good focus waves, please.

"Be a scribe! Servents answer speedily; beer is poured copiously; all who see you rejoice in good cheer. Happy is the heart of him who writes; he is young each day'"--Ptahopte

My goal in my career is wrapped up perfectly in this quotation/scene:

"I'd like to add some beauty to life," said Anne dreamily. "I don't exactly want to make people know more. . .but I'd love to make them have a pleasanter time because of me. . .to have some little joy or happy thought that would never have existed if I hadn't been born."--Anne of...Something (I don't remember which one), LM Montgomery
