Bio:
Hispanic-American married for 24 years, and father of two, who got into the Harry Potter universe just to see what the hype was about. So far I've stayed.

My taste in literature is varied. As some may guess from my username, I love Kafka the best, but also like Thomas Mann, Knut Hamsun, Jane Austen and J.K. Rowling, of course.

As far as movies are concerned, my favorite is "The Matrix", which surprisingly, is only incidentally an action movie. Other favorites are: "Gattaca", "Run Lola Run" (Lola rennt), "Downfall" (Der Untergang) and "Pride and Prejudice" (with Keira Knightely).

I've lived in four different countries and visited over fifteen. I speak English, Spanish and German. I've also contributed over eighty articles to the Spanish Wikipedia (everything worthwhile is already done in English).

Greatest Thrill: Driving down the Autobahn early Sunday morning at 140 mph (225 kph) on the slow lane, and being passed as if I'm standing still.

Greatest Accomplishment: (Besides staying married for 24 years, of course, ha, ha, ha!!!) I'm a three day Jeopardy champion... or a fourth day loser as my wife reminds me, in one of the international editions (Damn you, Pope Alexander VI * shakes fist*).

Bonds of Blood and Magic by Duelist starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 930]
** Winner of the 2010 Annual Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Drama **
A few days before Bill and Fleur's wedding, Harry vanished. Two weeks later, Ginny disappeared, also alone and without a trace.

Someone has stepped out of the shadows for a moment, moved some pieces on the board, and changed the rules of the game.

Curse of the Damned by melindaleo starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1344]
Seventh year sequel to Power of Emotion. Harry is recovering from his captivity at the end of his sixth year, but he's hiding how much it's effecting him. With his powers increasing, and Voldemort now aware of the prophecy, can Harry find the secret to destroying him before Voldemort learns the contents of the ancient texts? Would this be HP fanfiction if it were that easy?

Echoes of Power, Part I: Anger by moshpit starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 541]
Harry mysteriously disappeared at the age of six, and then benefited from years of tutoring from an old family friend. With the return of Voldemort, it is finally time for a 15 year old, well-trained and somewhat cynical and sarcastic Harry to take up his place at Hogwarts. Life at Hogwarts, however, is not always what Harry anticipated. There, secrets are revealed, allies are discovered, and the journey to power begins. Completely AU.

Getting Over Harry Potter by cwarbeck starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 515]
** Winner of the November 2006 Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Comedy **
When Ginny realises that she is firmly entrenched as Harry’s friend in the strictest, most platonic sense of the word, she is determined to banish any of her own definitely non-platonic sentiments once and for all. She comes up with a plan – an ingenious, infallible, perfect, foolproof plan – but how was it supposed to work if Harry seemed to be everywhere she looked?

Ginny Weasley and the Half-Blood Prince by ReisMacleod starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 576]
** Winner of the July 2010 Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Romance **
The story of "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince", but told from the perspective of Ginny Weasley. (NEW Note: I've updated the genre yet again... the trouble is that the story is a romantic comedy with elements of drama, as there is conflict and when you have conflict you have drama, but primarily, I think, the story is intended to be "romantic" So, there we are: our lone genre. Romantic.)

Harry Potter and the Nightmares of Futures Past by Viridian starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 706]
** Winner of the November 2007 Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Action/Adventure **

Home Alone: Shadow Rising by KEDme starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 69]
A new and improved version of my first fic, Home Alone, the prequel to Shadow of the Serpent. This version includes improved and extended scenes, combined chapters, consistent POV, and new material. Plot is essentially the same but corresponds more closely to the sequel. An edgier, better version of the original. Check it out and let me know what you think...

** Winner of the February 2007 Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Angst **
If two people are deliberately created to be together, how will the challenges in a world of magic and Dark Lords be dealt with? What would it mean for two people to truly become one? A re-imagination of first year.

The events following Harry Potter's second year didn't quite turn out as well as they should have. Ginny Weasley, in fact, was not all right, and she pushed away everyone and everything that was important to her in her guilt and depression. But then, someone she never expected walks into her head (quite literally) and changes her life forever. A HarryGinny Epic.

The Awakening Power by Sib starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 491]
Complete! Challenges fill Harry's busy sixth year: growing powers, Snape becomes defense teacher (and Harry's not in the mood for abuse), a new Potions teacher, a girl with a new crush on him, Quidditch, Voldemort, and a certain redheaded girl named Ginny who may help him through it all. What are the goblins up to? Will Ron win Hermione back? And what exactly is Voldemort's diabolical plan to kill Harry and plunge magical society into anarchy? Lots of romance, drama, action and humor! Voted Phoenix Song's Best Novel-Length Story (along with Best Harry and Best Kiss).

The Best Mistake of My Life by black_dress starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 625]
** Winner of the 2009 Annual Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Comedy **
It may have seemed like a mistake, but was it really all wrong? Or was Ginny just in a serious case of denial? AU Harry never went to Hogwarts and has never met the Weasleys. But what happens when he meets the youngest one? Even if the circumstances aren't exactly ideal. Follow Ginny as she discovers a few things about herself, the person she is meant to be and the person she is meant to be with. Because I think, in whatever universe, Harry is meant for Ginny.

The New Order by muggle_born starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 415]
Picks up moments from the end of HBP. The mission isn't turning out at all the way Harry had envisioned, with the reaction from Ginny he should have seen coming, the invasive attacks he thought were impossible, and the mystery surrounding Hermione that he may never unravel. Note: this was finished before Deathly Hallows, and my understanding of how Horcruxes were supposed to work was off from what was finally explained.
