I'm a 29 (almost 30 now, yeeeeeesh) year old who is no longer technically a newlywed but still feels like she is sometimes. Still from the midwest, still rockin' the pirate's booty and Dunkin coffee, but now also obsessed with lifting heavy weights and writing screenplays for her husband's production company. 

In other new news, I have a pupper now -- a sweet, three year old Golden named Maggie that is the actual light of my life -- and I am PUMPED AF my dudes to be back here in the world of EF again. 

I've been writing for years, but had never tried my hand at fan fiction until discovering the magical world of EF back in 2015.  Hopefully you enjoy reading as much as I do writing! Feel free to shoot me a message any time- or find me on instagram. ;)

Summary: Buffy's new boss is an ass. At least that's the way her coworker describes him to her on her first day. And after the way their first official meeting goes, she's pretty quick to agree. He's arrogant, stubborn, an editorial genius and impossibly magnetic.
And she's met him once before.
