My Bio

I have been a dabbler in the world of the written word for many years, sometimes as lurker, others as author. I always luxuriate in well-told tales, and the oftimes breathtaking beauty of a well-turned phrase.

A number of my stories have been honored with awards across the Harry Potter fandom. I am enormously grateful for the votes of confidence. Please note that among my stories are those written for more adult archives. None are more graphic than equivalent scenes in the television shows 'True Blood' or 'Game of Thrones', and there are age appropriate warnings posted.

My stories are searchable on several other sites, although some were lost to the long-defunct Coloured Grey and more recent closure of OWL. As of March, 2015 I have begun to consolidate my fanfiction to fewer archives. I don't plan on revising any of my early work, I look upon them as stepping stones on my writing journey.

I'm always delighted when someone likes my work enough to leave me a review. From their responses I learn new things, I think about my stories from different perspectives, I am humbled by their connection to a story, and I'm grateful.

After receiving a few guest reviews chastising me for some of the pairings in my early work, please note my stories reflect the state of canon at the time I began my AU tangent. There is a note at the conclusion of most stories indicating the date it was written. Thus, if a story was written in 2006 or even 2009, a backstory dating history of Charlie/Hermione is not beyond the realm of plausibility. Leap of Faith people!

I once had a reader leave me a scathing review for my "overused" pairing of Ron/Pansy in my long-in-hiatus massive epic 'The Summoning'. I laughed until I cried because, to my knowledge, I was the first to pair the two in a fanfic, so they weren't overused at all! It only shows how long my poor epic has languished; until it is a stereotype of its own originality.

I no longer write fanfiction prolifically, which is why my response to reviews is rather sporadic. Like many other fanfic authors, my focus has shifted to my original work, which I write under my name: Lin Thornhill.

In October 2014, my original short story 'Verisimilitude' was published in the anthology 'Thoroughly Modern Monsters' (J. Aldis, Story Spring Publishing) to respectable sales in the U.S., U.K, and Europe. I have another short story, 'Fixation' which has been accepted for J. Aldis' next anthology, 'Immanence,' slated for release in the latter half of 2015.

On the novel front, I'm working on a mythological urban fantasy series. It's entirely captivating!
