I'm an avid reader, an OK singer, and a complete computer geek. Currently favorite authors are Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb, Lori Foster, and Janet Evanovich, however I will read pretty much anything that catches my fancy. I don't read historical romances and can't stand "love your rapist" plots. I read the first 4 Harry Potter books in 3 days about 1 year before OotP came out. I was immediately taken in by the story and have read each subsequent book the day of release. I found fan fiction after publication of DH.
I wrote my first FanFic at age 7 about the Dukes of Hazzard. Let's just say I had no idea it was even called fan fiction and well; it was really, really bad. I'm not sure how much of that has changed in the past 29 or so years but I've decided to give it a shot.
