It may be all over now as far as new material goes, but I fully plan to keep on with the handful of plot bunnies I've gathered and have been caring for over the years. I've always said I never give up on a story once I start writing it (with the exception of Fire and Ice, my apologies).
After some totally incidental field research (travels to the Harry Potter Studio, Romania, and Bulgaria) I promise to pick up Storm and Stress again this summer. Sorry for the hiatus!
