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.

I used to go by Maggie, which is my real life nickname. You can still call me that because I like to use pretentious phrases like nom de plume!

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.


I make all my covers myself but the images that I use to make them belong to their respective owners and no copyright infringement was intended.

New Chapter of In Her Shadow! I'm also half asleep, so apologies for any typos. It was either this or no new chapter for another week at least. Feel free to point out any errors and I will correct them later. Hope you enjoy.
