Umm... where do I start on this? Ok... short history...

I'm a 42 year old mom of 5 and wife of 16 years. I started watching Buffy when it originally aired and I became addicted immediately! I was never a Bangel fan and fell hard for Spuffy before they were a couple. I still enjoy the series and so glad I found this site which lets my inner Spuffy be happy. 

Through EF, I have found my passion for writing again... thanks to Holly and her challenge. 

I've also have met some really awesome people here and love how encouraging they can be. I have the best beta ever, MaggieLaFey and the bestest banner artist, kats_meow. No you can't have either one.. they are MINE MINE MINE!! Just kidding... that is their choice to make!

Also, through EF, I was fortunate enough to meet my bestest friend in the entire universe. Her penname is The Danish Bird... go check out her stories. Fair warning... they are highly addictive. 

I am quad lingual... I obviously speak English, though German was my first language, Spanish my third and ASL my fourth.

Currently I work as a restaurant manager... until I can work full time writing fanfic!
