Bio:

I'm pretty uncomplicated.  As a writer I love the late First to early Third Age, though it's not a hard and fast rule and I'll read pretty much anything. For me, fanfiction's about telling a tale based around characters I know and love/hate, finding new angles to view them from and discovering what situations they might find themselves in. Maybe that's why I like slash? Now there's a thought....! Also, it's about loving the whole process of writing (okay, not the editing part). When the words won't come, I'm miserable. I've written 'stories' since I was in junior school, I can't imagine not doing this. 


Personal details: married, mother of two girls, live in Cape Town, South Africa. I still have a lot to learn about writing as a craft, but I am delighting in the journey.
