I'm Janice McCready, I live in the North of England with my lovely family; one husband and two delightful (most of the time) kids.I'm a buyer for a UK retailer, but spend my spare time reading and writing. And then any other spare time I spend online! I'm a moderator here at MNFF and have been known to beta read occasionally!.
I have one novel-length fic up (The Daughter of Light) and am currently working on its sequel, The Severed Souls. It wasn't supposed to be about my OC and Snape, but they ended up taking over! I've also got a few one-shots up and copious amounts of poetry.
Summary: A Malfoy is lost in the Muggle world, enjoying its simplicity. But her brother finds her and he's not best pleased. Short fic - just a few chapters.
Summary: Peter Pettigrew meddles with things he probably shouldn't, and Severus and Hermione take tea together.
This is a little alternate universe off-shoot of my Daughter of Light series, provoked by a very naughty PM from Jenna this morning. There are scenes of a sexual nature - you have been warned. This will probably be a few chapters in length.
Summary: Summary : The sequel to Daughter of Light. Maeve has a very bad end to her honeymoon as things come to light about Severus that astound her. Why is her husband so keen to keep Draco Malfoy alive at all costs and can she really get over her loathing of Narcissa Malfoy to work together to save both Severus and Draco from the fate that Voldemort would like to inflict on them? Why is Harry so furtive and will Neville save the day when Maeve’s necklace is returned to her by her father. Oh, and our favourite bad-boy Auror is back!
There has been rather a long break in the writing of the story due to work commitments, but I'm back on the case and hoping to get it finished - if there's anyone left still reading!! :-)
Summary: Molly's feelings as she fights to keep control of herself when the brood are away.
Summary: When Lily falls at the hands of Voldemort there are unexpected benefits, but for Severus Snape there is only sorrow.
Summary: Hogwarts has always been a place of snow and magic, but after the final battle the snow doesn't lie so quietly.
Summary: A wizard gallery is a noisy place, but it's the quiet ones that will get you.
Summary: Bodmin Moor is a cold and unforgiving place. When Halcyon Rosmerta is left stranded by her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend she finds herself having to depend upon the kindness of a rather strange man with a definate reluctance to go outside. But what lurks in his cellar?
Summary: Mostly Richard Spender's writing adapted for the Pottervesre. Given the time of year, this is my act of remembrance.
Summary: Depends on the angle.
Summary: Herbert Reed wrote this, I just played with it. For the original please Google "The Naming of the Parts". Naturally, Herbert's is a much better poem.
Summary: In times of unease, only the hardest of hearts will give protection.
Inspired by a heart made of iron I bought from a blacksmith. It's heavy and cold and unbreakable.
