My name is Teresa (AF) and I live in The Tidewater of Virginia.  I LOVE Jane Austen, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Science Fiction, The Quinto, and Rachmaninoff… not necessarily in that order.

I am the epitome of Web 2.0. I blog & blog, & blog, & flickr & tweet, and I am also Linkedin.

Leo and a flaming ISTJ (so watch it!)  You have been warned!

  1. I noticed on your flickr photo a picture of Pierce’s BBQ. Are you in Virginia? I did not know there were very many dwiggies in Virginia. I am originally from Hampton and now live in the Shenandoah Valley. Whenever I can, I stop at Pierce’s when I am in the W’burg/NN area. Love it.

    Anyway, I enjoy reading your stories.

  2. Yes! I live in Newport News, I graduated from Phoebus High in Hampton and I would eat a Pierce’s everyday if I had the chance!! 🙂

  3. Kecoughtan? Booooooo! But seriously, as long as you are not a Crabber. 😉

    Small world, two Hamptonians who are Dwiggies. What are the odds?

Let me ask you, could you, please, give me permission for translating on Russian language your work and publicating in Russian literature forum club for reading, discussion and admiration, indeed!

    • That’s totally fine. Just properly link back to the original, if you don’t mind. I am glad that you like it enough to tackle as it is rather long Good luck and enjoy.

  5. Do you plan to finish For the Love of Jane? I discovered the story months ago and I check for updates frequently. Will there be a Chaper 22?
