My Bio





I'm a forty-something American woman who is addicted to the SSHG pairing, relatively new to this fandom. I'm also considering starting some original fiction soon...

Check out the story I co-wrote with Remarkable -- it's called "Hidden Attractions" and (as soon as it's through the queue) it's archived under the penname remarkable_linlawless.

For those who are interested, I've got two WIPs at my website (which I will eventually post here, but not until I have a complete draft).  It's easy and free to join the website, so I hope you'll visit!

I am honored that my story, Witchy Woman, has been selected as a featured story for September 2010.  Better yet, this honor came with the very awesome banner at the top of this post!

Here's a couple of banners my friend Atuliel made for the two WIPs at my website:
