Author has written 28 stories for Biography, Life, and Romance.

I went to school for writing. Two bachelor's degrees under my belt, and I still don't know what I'm doing. I focused heavily on poetry, but I've found it only interests me fleetingly, and most of what I write has the unfortunate ring of pretension. For a while I gave up. I wrote nothing for years, and recently I've picked up the pen again (metaphorically of course, because who writes with pens anymore?) and have written quite a lot of fanfiction over on . I wonder though, why it is so hard for me to write totally original prose. I'm starting to think it's the characters. Creating three dimensional characters who are truly original seems impossible. I think maybe the only things I'm going to be posting here are terrible poetry and memoir-ish type prose posts. I do appreciate anyone that chooses to read any of it, and would hope anyone feels free to leave comments or suggestions. I'll try and return the favor.

A Mutually Beneficial Arrangement reviews
Catherine Ridgemont would have happily lived out her life alone, sitting in the quiet library of her fathers house, drinking tea and sitting with Cecily, making pies in the kitchen on cold rainy days. She would have been happy to gracefully ease into spinsterhood like so many of her counterparts. That is, until, circumstances changed, and Christopher Blackpool needed a wife.
