Male; Born early '70s; Father of 4; Love to read just about anything (mysteries, spy thrillers, science fiction/fantasy, etc.); Only got into HP fanfiction after DH; Having fun trying to write.

I tend to be more of a short-story producer than a book-length one. I have enjoyed entering the SIYE challenges, and I always try to write something a little different, if I can. Of those stories, my personal favorite is "Albus' Dilemma," although "A Taste of the Dream" is probably a better written story.

I have one long fic, "One Blink," which came out okay for a first attempt at creating a multi-chaptered story. It was a great learning experience, and I'm hoping to apply what I've learned to my next one.

Things you will not see in my fanfiction (this list will probably evolve):
- Harry getting a bulked up physique from riding a broom
- Referring to anyone as “a scarlet woman”
- Ron characterized as nothing more than an empty stomach with legs

Summary: A series of fics that provide short glimpses into the lives of the Potters after the final battle. Each fic is a trio of scenes linked together by a common phrase. Light and fluffy.
