I've learned there are troubles of more than one kind,

But I've brought this big bat, I'm all ready you see,
And now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!
-Theodore Geissel ( Dr. Seuss )
Valkyrie is new to fiction writing and finished her first serial in May 2014. Her work generally centers on flawed individuals who tend to go through some pretty tough times before reaching their happily ever after; if indeed, they do reach it. She is a big fan of animals, especially cats and horses, and they feature in quite a few of her stories. She is also a fan of sappy romance; although she tries to keep that to a minimum in her writing.
Cia's writing involves stories with budding relationships.

The majority of Renee's stories are contemporary, but she does dabble in the paranormal and hopes to branch out into Sci-Fi. Regardless of the genre, her stories are about love and overcoming obstacles. While her characters tend to be put through the wringer, it is usually worth it for them to persevere to the end.
