Some Excerpts

I had been a lurker for many years for various different fandoms and had tried my hand at writing once or twice, but I never really was active in any of them. Then last year I had a very vivid Harry Potter related dream that I had such a strong visual image from that I wished I was a visual artist. Since I have no talent in the visual arts whatsoever, and the image was haunting me, I wrote it down instead. That story eventually became Sacrifices, my first ever Harry Potter fanfic. Then, after some wonderful feedback from solstice_muse and hedwigs_bane over on LJ, I was encouraged to continue writing and to begin to post my work publicly. The rest just sort of fell to place, and I fell in love with writing.
I adore Ron! I honestly feel hes the heart of the series. He's not perfect, but he's a great friend, funny, has amazing red hair, and plays a kick ass game of chess!
My actual writing environment is loud, filled with the comings and goings of my large family and is fraught with interruptions. Occasionally I write in the lunch room at work during my horrendously short 30 minute lunch break, where I'm constantly on alert in case anyone decides to join me and I have to hide my slashy PWP from my co-workers.
