"The world is dark, and light is precious. Come closer, dear reader. You must trust me. I am telling you a story." Kate DiCamillo


I am a reader. I love to read. As a child, I was often chastised and chased out of my house for reading instead of “getting fresh air”. When I should have been asleep, I was under the covers with a flashlight, reading. I have never been without a book to read, until now.

After being completely depressed by the end of the series, my book store clerk where yes, I was reading away on release day, told me about Muggle Net. My bookstore sells beer, too. What a combination Potter and Pints. Yahoo!

So, here I am. I am thrilled and consumed by reading the stories here every day. I have been accused of being addicted. I admit to being a bit obsessed. I have been up many nights into the wee hours of the morning, reading here. While I don’t do it often, I have found I love to review. I aspire for my reviews to be helpful and encouraging.

I have discovered the world of Snape fiction. I feel as the series went on, particularly with DH, the main characters were becoming a bit flat and predictable. Not that I didn't (and don’t') still love the trio, it’s just that the evolution and development of Severus is some of the most compelling parts of series for me. After reading DH, I have gone back and read the entire series, with an eye towards how JKR managed the development of such a complex character.

I am a freelance photojournalist and I sometimes write the stories that go with my photos. I have never written fiction, though. I have photo and word editing experience and I hope to be able to beta someday. I also hope to begin writing fan fiction some time in the future. I have even hatched my own plot bunny, so now I have to figure out how to write fiction. A bit daunting to me, I must admit.
