Abbie C. read JA fanfic for YEARS, starting in high school (how long ago was that? The early 2000s!). In 2010-2011, she decided to put her college English major to good use and began writing "Fearful Symmetry." She posted with semi-regular faithfulness for a time as a newlywed during that season of life. Then some craziness happened, she worked two jobs, and life ran away with her story.
She's recently experienced another major life-shift and is now a stay-at-home mom to a new baby (born May 2015) while her now full-time employed (and no longer grad-student) hubby brings home the bacon. That means she can write again while the baby sleeps. It also means she can read FF at all hours of the night when baby is awake for feedings. She hopes to enjoy this probably brief season of her life with renewed creative energy.
Isn't life magical and unpredictable?
