Born a Leo in the year of the Dragon, I love adventure. Hobbies include flying (pilot since 1999) and karate instructor. Really.

I love romance stories, but not smut for smut's sake. My stories tend to be hopeful and I love a strong female character, which is why I like Ginny, or at least what she's intended to be: a little tomboy-ish, and just a wee bit influenced by the twins.

My stories here definitely reflect my growth as a writer. Clearly, my older work has some flaws and every time I re-read them, I feel compelled to correct small things. Nevertheless, they still have a charm and rather good plots. It's rather fun to see that I've actually gotten better over time, and hope to continue to do so, so feedback, especially of the constructive kind, is most appreciated.

Contractual Obligations by gidge_8    (Reviews - 750)

Selling herself into a marriage contract, Ginny finds herself playing a deadly game, ultimately pitting her husband against her lover and a father against his son. Many twists and turns, depth and evil characters - and a long story of sweet and true love.

New! Epilogue is up! Yes, I know, the story has been "complete" for a couple of years, but this ending has been partially written for a long time and it ties up some loose ends.
