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 young woman suffers at the hands of her husband, until one day he goes too far and she walks out of her front door to an unknown future. Her future appears in the form of Charlie Weasley, but what exactly does fate have in store for the pair of them? Written for Poultrygeist as a covert cupid.
Summary: Hannah, a Muggle on her way to her parents' house for Christmas, has her journey intercepted in a rather startling way. This is a little fluffy Snape/OC romance, written for Secret SPEW at Christmas. It was written for Laura/Insecurity.
Summary: Severus Snape has a heart of ice. But a certain female OC has melted it. This is about my OTP of Severus/Maeve. Aww the Christmas lurve. :-) I have no idea why Christmas has driven me to poetry. T'is scary indeed.
Summary: A little bit of Christmas fluff and hope, Harry and Ginny style.
Summary: Meet Rufus Norton, a sixth year Slytherin who finds himself in a bit of a fix.
This was written in response to a challenge from Seren. I had to write a siege at Hogwarts from the first person POV of a Slytherin boy. A main character had to die, Ron and Neville had to be in the story and the Slytherin had to feel some admiration for them. I had a hard time getting the 'voice' of my Slytherin until I saw Rufus Wainwright perform at Glastonbury and there he was! So thank you, Rufus, for the inspiration! LOL
Summary: Okay, this is a strange one. I finished Daughter Of Light yesterday and decided to start my big edit of the whole fic. As I was working on chapter three this scene popped into my head. It is Maeve and Severus' death. I had to write it, just because the idea wouldn't leave me alone, so here it is. It's what could happen in a hundred years or so... so don't get too traumatised. :-)
Summary: A little study of what Snape's parents' marriage might have been like.
Summary: A poem about Maeve and Severus, and the partings they have endured.
Summary: A little character exploration. How did Neville's Gran take the news of her son's torture and what does she really think of her grandson?
Summary: A little night music for Severus and Maeve. Another offshoot of Daughter of Light...sexual imagery but nothing graphic.
Summary: Harry finds himself in a strange place with an altered Ginny for company. And what are those words that he can hear on the wind?
Summary: A companion piece to Snape's Birthday and a little off-shoot of Harry Potter and the Daughter of Light. It helps if you have read Daughter of Light but it's also a stand alone piece if you fancy a bit of spring magic.
Summary: It's the ninth of January and Severus is trying to avoid his birthday but this year it's not going to be spent alone.
This is an offshoot of Harry Potter and the Daughter of Light but it didn't quite fit within the main story so it's a one shot.
