Learning to Live Again

Hello All!

Well the first five chapters of my new story have been posted and to date 205 of you have left reviews.

LTLA has had a very emotional impact on many of you, moreso than I ever imagined it would. Reading many of your reviews choked me up and I am so very awed at the courage so many of you have. Many of you are the family or friends of service men and women, and for many of you this story hits close to home. When I started to write this story I honestly didn't think of the impact it might have, it was just a plot line that refused to leave me alone until I started writing.

As I get farther and farther into the story, and Jasper reveals more of the circumstances surrounding the roadside bomb that sent him and Peter to the hospital, I find myself more and more aware of the sensitivity of the subject matter.

It seems that chapter 6 is shaping up to be one of the most emotionally gripping chapters I have ever written. I will be having someone who used to be in the Army pre-read it for me and offer her opinion. I will also be prefacing the chapter with a strong warning that I hope doesn't get ignored.

The next chapter should be up in a few days.

Learning to Live Again

Hello All!

Well as I have said I've been working on something new lately. I know I told you all it was a Harry Potter Fic pairing Hermione and Draco together, and I have been working at it. However, something new popped into my head that demanded to be written.

Yes, Jasper is a demanding one. He has been knudging me for months on this one and finally wouldn't take no for an answer. So I give you "Learning to Live Again".

This is an all human fic that finds a traumatized Jasper returning from being wounded in Iraq only to lose everything that he was holding on to. Where does he go from here? Can he make his way back or will his memories destroy him.

Here's a glimpse.


My dreams were haunted by the faces of my men as they died screaming, begging me to save them, crying out for their mothers or wives. There had been nothing threatening about the day that we were blown to hell; no intel about insurgents so close to the base. It was a leisurely drive through the desert, nothing more than returning to base after a routine low risk recon mission. The roadside bombs had been unexpected.

All three of the cars in our convoy were hit. One minute I'm laughing with Garza and the next my world was fire and screams.


Check it out and let me know what you think. A huge thanks to KareBear1965 for giving me a crash course on Army terminology.

Until next time!

So I have been told that I have been too quiet and I need to update you all on how the writing is going. Hmmmm... Well it is going. Slowly. But I am still working on the Harry Potter fic starring Draco and Hermione that I blogged about previously. The first 10 chapters are being preread and it's looking like it's going to be a longer story than I thought. Possibly needing to be split in to two separate stories by the look of the plot.

Real life has been literally kicking my ass lately between trying to sell our house and move, my sister passing away at 31, going back to work for my husband after he had to fire two of his employees, getting another job (bringing the grand total up to 3 for those of you that are counting) and still dealing with the day to day crap that everyone has. This means that I have been reluctant to publish anything because I would hate to leave a story hanging.

Time to write is at a premium right now but stuff IS getting written. Initial feedback on the HP fic is positive. I have also been working on a couple other things including an original story and a Chronicles of Riddick fic (don't ask where that one came from - cause I got no idea).

But rest assured stories are in the works and will be posted eventually.

Thats it for now. I'm being called back to work. Later!

Upcoming Fic

Hello all! I have no idea if anyone reads this or not but I thought I would post my thoughts.

I've been hard at work on a new story that has me pretty absorbed. However it's not my usual and beloved Twilight fandom so I'll completely understand if none of you want to read it.

I've ventured into the world of Harry Potter. Now before you make that disgusted sound and go back to Jasper worshipping (I mean who doesn't), you have to remember that I hate the usual pairings and canon is never really for me. Couple that with my obsession for the bad boy, and you have a story that pairs Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy. Yes, it was a challenge.

I loved the books but hated the epilogue. So in true James Ramsey fashion, I have rewritten it the way I wanted to see it. I'm currently 8 chapters in but intend to write a few more before I start posting.

Here's the summary,

It's two years after the Battle of Hogwarts. Hermione and Harry work at the Ministry fighting a new war against former Death Eaters who've fashioned a New Order, following in the footsteps of the fallen Voldemort. Leaving the Ministry late one night, Hermione is abducted. Who will be there to save her?

Fic is fated M and has dark themes. Mentions rape, torture and slavery.

I hope you Twihards out there will give it a chance and have take a read.
