Author Biography

No

I'm an elementary school teacher from Illinois. I started reading Bsb fanfic over the summer of 1999, when I was 14, and I've been writing it for almost as long. My favorite kind of stories to write are drama/angst with a hint of romance, and most of my stories are about Nick, Brian, or AJ.

You can check out my full collection of stories on my site, Dreamer's Sanctuary.

Summary: Past Featured Story

Summary: Five men trying to fulfill their destinies as they venture from genre to genre hoping upon last hope that one of those genres fits them perfectly...will it be drama? Or perhaps suspense? Maybe sci fi or slash or... "Excuse me, don't want to be a bother but..." Writer: I'm in the middle of our summary what now Nick? "Well it's just that if it were up to us we wouldn't be in this story at all it's you that wants us to find a place not us." Writer: Oh whatever...just read it people or I off the cute blonde! "Hey!"

By the 3 M's

OMG, I haven't read this in so long! I am dying! LMFAO. I don't know what was funniest... Howie getting ignored because of Nick and going, "Can I at least sing a song as I go?" or Dr. "Kristof" hoping it was serious or the writer reading her medical terms off the back of a Golden Grahams box or it being a mosquito bite on Nick's leg all along, but I cracked up at it all! It was fun to reread this.

Author's Response:

My favorite is definitely the Glden Grahams box! LOL Thanks, Julie! I might have to go read this chapter again!

Oh my god, this brought back so many bad memories of 2004! Paris, UGH! You made me appreciate the fact that it's 2013 and Nick is with Lauren and not like this anymore SO MUCH!!! That said, the whole idea of Nick falling out his window and landing on a sandwich and Kevin freaking out about it and Brian rushing over to help him is pretty funny. Random... but funny!

Author's Response:

Yeah, Nick was a complete mess back then! This whole chapter was pretty random lol but I think that's why I love it so much. Thanks, Julie!

I really love this story. You took a storyline that could be seen as a teenybopper fantasy and made it believable and realistic. You've done an amazing job with the characterization; I haven't experienced some of the things V and Nick have myself, but I feel like I can relate to them because you've made them so understandable and easy to empathize with. I love how you show their inner thoughts; it really helps because they - Veronica especially - don't always act on their feelings, so it's good to know how they really feel, and you do a great job at showing that. You also keep both sides balanced really well, alternating between Nick's and Veronica's perspectives. Also, I really like the way you're tackling some tough issues, like divorce, self-esteem, parents' opinions of us, etc. and doing a fantastic job with them, while still sticking to the budding romance plot. These issues add to the believability of the story and give it more depth; I'm usually pretty picky about romance cause I get bored with it when there's too much "romance" and not enough of anything else, so I really enjoy the real life sort of drama in this story. Keep up the AMAZING work; I can't wait to read more!!

Author's Response: Aww well thanks ROA! I really appreciate the comments! I've tried hard to make it realistic and believeable, but there's always room for improvement of course. I hope to get better as the story progresses cause there's still so much left to be said and done. As for the issues, I just write about what I know, which is what a close friend of mine once told me. It's life expierences, and I can write it how I see it and I hope it shows in this. Thanks again and I hope you'll continue to read! ;o)

Swollen Issues II by Carrie_Swenglish Rated: PG-13 Liked [ - ]
Summary:

things still aren't right for Nick since his return from the Japan Tour. He is sick and needs help but will he get it in time before it's too late?

I had put chapters 30 & 31 from SWIII here by mistake. Chapter 30 listed now is correct...I didn't skip any chapters, it just looks like that - too lazy to update #s.

Omg... okay, Nick has been at death's door about 50,000 times in this story already, but I still get scared every time! Please no!! He's been through so much, and just when he seemed to be getting better for real... :(

Awesome chapter! Totally heartwrenching... the end was brutal!

Hey! I just found your story and have been reading it - amazing job on it so far!! It seems very realistic; you did a wonderful job with the medical details, making things accurate. It's always nice to see that. I'm not sure if you just knew all of those details because this is based on a true story, or if you did your research, but either way, good job, and thanks! It's always refreshing to see that in fanfics. :)

Author's Response: Thanks for reading it! Actually, a lot of the details are based on a true story, but not all of them, so I have done my \"bit\" of research. And I\'m glad you liked it. =)

This is great so far!! I hardly ever read original fiction online, but I love stories like this, so yours caught my eye, and I'm getting into it already.

My only bit of constructive criticism would be to watch your tenses. Don't switch from past tense to present tense and back to past tense - this chapter does that in places. If you get a chance to go back and edit, that's one thing you might want to watch for.

Other than that, your writing is great!! You really get into your characters' heads, and I like that - makes it easy to relate to them and understand them. :)

Btw, do you read Lurlene McDaniel? Her books were my all-time favorites - probably why I'm enjoying your story! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check her out - I'm sure you'd like her stuff! :)

Aww, great update! You left me torn between thinking Craig's an asshole, yet understanding where he's coming from at the same time... which is hard to do! Good job! I'm glad you updated; hope you keep 'em coming!

Author's Response: Aww...thanks. Thats what I was hoping to do...leave the reader torn between feeeling like Craig is an ass, but yet kind of feeling bad for him too. Guess I pulled through! You rock! Thanks for all of your support with this one! It really means a lot to me!
