If you're here for the fanfic, check out my Criminal Minds Table of Contents post and Harry Potter Table of Contents post.

So what could you possibly want to know about me? I'm 35, in debt, and I work at a museum. I write urban and epic fantasy. I'm a Christian who has friends of various faiths (or lack thereof). I'm single and happy with that (not that I'm opposed to marriage). I don't want kids, but I am the mom of two adorable cats named Eowyn and Strider. I love to sing. I'll read just about anything, but I prefer fantasy and crime fiction and have a huge love for werewolves. I studied medieval history and also love talking about the American Civil War. I love hiking and I'm a bird nerd. I live in the country and love it.

I cross-post here from DreamWidth and answer comments at both sites.

I'm a redhead, a writer, a vocalist, an historian, a cynical dreamer. I am mildly hypoglycemic and suffer from migraine and chronic depression. I love pens, especially fountain pens, and own more than I could ever possibly run out of ink.

I have a sword and someday I'll know how to use it.

I used to write Harry Potter fanfiction, which may be why you're here. You'll find all my HP fics in the Table of Contents post.

For a few years I also wrote in the Criminal Minds fandom. I hung out at morganreid_cm, cmrossiprentiss, and ssa_rossi. I was one of the co-founders of cm_exchange, the Criminal Minds holiday gift exchange. I co-wrote a lot of fic with severity_softly and our fics are posted at geekystudmuffin. Neither of us are active in the CM fandom anymore, but we're always glad to get feedback about old fics.
