Author has written 2 stories for Romance.

I currently have only one story on this site. I got hooked on Fanfiction.com about one year ago and realized how much I enjoyed writing. This is my first attempt at original fiction. I have many more ideas that I'm trying to realize and working on a few stories before they are ready for posting.

"Less Than A Hundred Days of Summer" started out as a way to cheer up a friend. And somewhere along the way it turned into something more. The characters I created took on a life of their own and I've become invested in their relationship as if they are real living - breathing human beings. COMPLETED NOW.

I'm thinking of publishing it, so please leave comments and suggestions and reviews, if you are starting to read it. I am going to review and edit it, but any constructive criticism is definitely welcome.

I love to explore feelings and motivations that guide people in their interactions. Why and how choices are formed and the consequences of decisions and actions that follow - are as important for me as overt behaviors. I do love a romance and I do believe that chemistry is a necessary component in any successful love pairing, so I tried to make sure that chemistry is clear and palpable with both characters attracted to each other. However, if you are looking for explosive M rated sexual encounters - you won't find them in this story. Not that I don't appreciate a good M-rated romance, this particular one is just not where the focus lies.

Since this is my first attempt and the first post on this site, I would greatly appreciate comments, reviews and feedback. I take writing seriously. I try to edit each chapter thoroughly before I share it with others. Of course, there is always room for improvement and typos and mistakes are inevitable. If you notice any, please PM me.

I try to read as many stories by other fictionpress writers as I can, whenever the time allows. I always leave reviews and encourage everybody as well.

If you are reading and not leaving reviews, please consider doing so. It is the only way a writer can receive some recognition for the effort and heart poured into a story. I am grateful to those who took the time to say what they thought, whether it is just a couple of words. Please, don't be shy, even if you don't have much to say, the fact that you are reading says that you might like the story, therefore, you can say just that. Also, if there is something that makes you upset, please voice your concerns. Don't let it dissuade you from continuing.

And if you had the patience to read through all of this - separate thank you.

If you have any questions about anything, send me a message. I love making new friends on this site!

I Dare You by Michelle1236 reviews
Samantha is the typical good girl who's only focus is becoming a professional ballet dancer. Danny is the troubled bad boy who's anything but perfect. They're two complete opposites with no intentions of falling in love. But one dare can change all that.

Marry Me? by Sakura Izume reviews
Poor student Grace unwittingly winds up in a contract to pose as the fiancee of the handsome Layton Kingsley. Of course, this would be a lot easier if she wasn't in love with someone else, didn't have to deal with his vengeful ex-girlfriend or his flirty younger brother, and life would be especially easier if she didn't have to LIVE with Layton.

Tomboy by Shadowswept reviews
My brother's best friend didn't always annoy me, but lately he's been getting on my last nerve. Why can't he treat me the way all the other guys do? I never asked for his attention, but he says that he's been waiting for me to grow up.

One Hot Summer by Shadowswept reviews
I had been warned about Billy Joe. He was nothing but trouble, and no decent girl would have anything to do with him. This is a short story set in the 1950's.

No Promises by forever.unbroken reviews
It's wrong. I shouldn't allow it. But if you knew him, you'd know why I can't help myself. His chestnut eyes, dark brown hair, his charisma, his loyalty, his sweetness, his humour, his everything. And he loves me too. If only he weren't my stepbrother...

From Venice With Love reviews
"Good," he exhales and I see now a genuine smile with more warmth in it. The smirk is wiped off his face and he pulls the chair and sits across from me. "How long are you staying?" He asks as if it is normal just to start a conversation with a complete stranger, while invading their breakfast table without invitation.

Less Than A Hundred Days of Summer reviews
He carries titles of "the sexiest man" and "a king of romance," but why does not he have any connection to anybody in real life? She is smart and sensitive, with a sensual name Giselle, but she keeps falling for wrong men. She works at a fast food joint while he is a famous romantic movie star - a perfectly unlikely pairing. Yet, they are drawn together. Will they find love?
