I\'ve been a Harry Potter fan since PoA was published in the United States. I discovered Harry Potter fan fiction while waiting for HBP to arrive. I read for years, but only began writing myself in 2007.

I live in the Northern Virginia suburbs just south of Washington DC. I am in my mid-fifties with a wife and three sons -- two of whom are also Harry Potter fans.

JKR\'s world is one of my most important refuges from the real(?) world of government bureaucracy.

Challenge Winner When Life Gives You Lemons... by MinistryMalcontent starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 28]
** Winner of Galleons Wisely Spent in the “Potter’s Affairs” Challenge **
Harry was banned from Gringotts by the Goblins and denied access to the Potter and Black fortunes and any of the bank’s services for leading the attack on Gringotts that stole Hufflepuff’s cup from the LeStrange vault. In this story, Harry makes his peace with the Goblins and moves on with his life.

Author’s Note: This is a “jump forward” in the story arc for my Shut and Be a Bud Again universe submitted as an entry in the Potter’s Affairs challenge.
