About Me

I’ve just come out of a looong swap-bot hiatus and I’m excited to get creative and mingle with people all over the world again!

I work in a bookstore, and have a soft spot for children’s books. I read some YA, lots of fantasy, paranormal romance and urban fantasy.

I’m a (bit) of a hoarder and love to collect a manner of things from 1980s my little pony to pop figures, dragons and stuff others may consider junk!

David Tennant is my favourite Doctor, I have a soft spot for John Barrowman.

I’m a Ravenclaw, though my favourite characters are Sirius and Draco!

I adore ferrets and rats though currently don’t own any at the moment. I do however have a fluffy grey and white hamster called Ambrosius.

I’m an author of LGBTQ+ romance, I love to read and I’ve started to get into junk journals/art journals lately.

Favorite Music

HIM, Kill Hannah, John Barrowman, Scars on 45, Placebo, Negative, 69 Eyes...

Favorite Books

Oh gosh, this will be a loooong list. I work in a bookshop, it's safe to say I love books! here goes: The Crow by James O'Barr, Lost Souls, Exquisite Corpse, Drawing Blood, Lazarus Heart, and anything else by Poppy Z. Brite. Anne Bishop's black jewel novels, Lynn Flewelling's Nightrunner series, Laurell K Hamilton's Anita Blake series, J. R. Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Bret Easton Ellis; especially Rules of Attraction, David Levithan, Rhys Ford, TA Moore...

Favorite Movies

The Crow and The Crow:City of Angels (not any other sequel though), Empire Records, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Calamity Jane, Annie, Pitcch Perfect, Labyrinth...I think I’m partial to musicals!

Favorite Television

Doctor Who, Buffy, Angel, Shadow Hunters, Revolution, Stranger Things, The Tribe, Heartbreak High

Favorite Crafts

Junk journal/art journaling/glue booking, paper craft (as long as it’s not neat!)

Jewellery making, Polymer clay, Mini books. Podca pens, mixed medi


To try and make it easier for people who may have me as their partner for something:

I like dragons, and anything slightly strange or odd.

Victoriana or anything that looks old or I can steampunk up

I love the colour purple, rats, ferrets, hamsters, healing crystals, junk mail from other places....


I don't like spiders, coconut or white chocolate...especially all in one!;)

Gabrielle rated for Butterfly Matchbox Diorama on Feb 3, 2012
Comment: Both the little diorama and the card are beautiful! Thanks so much! And the size of your matchbox is fine -- I compared it to an empty one I have, and it is within 1/16 of an inch of having the same length, which isn't even worth talking about! Keep up the good work, and happy swapping!
Response: i'm so glad you liked it! i had lots of fun making it, once i stopped panicing about the size lol!
