About

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."
      
      My username comes from the words of wisdom by the 19th century lunatic Mr William Herondale who is a character in the 'Infernal Devices' trilogy by Cassandra Clare.  
      
      Maggie is my real life nickname. I'm using it here because I always wanted to use a pretentious phrase like nom de plume and the opportunity was too good to pass up. 
      
      I'm dyslexic. I started writing as a challenge to myself and to get the voices in my head to shut up. The jury's still out. 
      
      I'm a twin. I think my sister is the evil one but most disagree. I've found hitting them doesn't help my cause. 
      
      
      I critique. I don't claim to be an expert but years of being an extremely picky reader has given me insight into what makes a good story. If you want feedback just PM me - any requests on my message board will be ignored/ deleted/ responded to rudely (depends on my mood). The stories must have decent grammar and have been proof-read. I'm not saying it has to be perfect but it is unfair for you to ask me to read something you cannot be bothered to read yourself. Also, nothing with stupid titles.
      I reserve the right to decline the request.

How is everyone doing? Just a heads up, I should be uploading A Captain's Heart and Final Kiss sometime tonight. In the meantime, I suggest you head over to @NicoletteAndrews profile and check out her newly featured story, The priestess and the dragon. If you like fantasy, which I'm sure you do (otherwise I have no idea why you're here!) then you should love it. 
      
      Happy Reading. :D

Is it Jenny? Megan did think she saw Jenny once.  It would be just like Josiah to keep her hostage and let Harper think she died.

Thank you. She's feeling what the person is feeling, so I assume if someone died peacefully, she couldn't feel anything. For other deaths - it would depend how they died. 
      
      Thank you. :)
