Bio:
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.

Birthday Blues by Magical Maeve
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 2]

Summary: Another birthday, another present from his mother, and another year gone. Severus Snape would like birthdays to be cancelled, or at least put into a large void that was a million miles away from him.

This is AU and based on the characters that I created for Snape in Daughter of Light. That fiction was written before HBP so I had to create Snape's family. Unsurprisingly, Jo had different ideas to me. ;-)
