I am a writer of fiction, transformative prose, and a reader of fiction and non-fiction.

I am a conference organizer by necessity, a medievalist by training, and a potter by passion.

I am old enough to know better, but young enough to avoid injuring myself in the process.

E Carnell

I love the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, all of it - the artistry, the company, the people, the dedication to community and intellectual punch and the scents and... well, all of it. I can't recommend them highly enough, truly.

(A note for fellow BPAL lovers: my favorite discontinued GC scent of all time is Phantom Queen - I am always looking for more, so if you see any please let me know.)

I write fanfic. (Yeah, I know. Deal.) I'm also a member of the admin team at The Petulant Poetess, a moderated online fiction archive dedicated to Harry Potter Fanfiction (also original stories and poetry) that actively guides and encourages new--and seasoned--authors and provides the reader with a library full of well-written stories. I've been known to give formal presentations at cons--at some point I really should archive those essays somewhere...
