I’ve been a part of Spuffy fandom since 2002—specifically, the summer between my junior and senior years of high school. A friend had pneumonia and wanted company. She took advantage of my presence to put in the first season of BtVS and…well, things spiraled. Throughout the rest of high school and all of college, I wrote Spuffy fanfic like it was my job, immersed myself in fandom (which was on LiveJournal at the time), and eventually founded The Elysian Fields Spuffy Archive with several close fandom friends. As of 2020, I have rejoined EF as part of the admin team.

In 2009, my first novel was published and I began drifting out of fandom to focus on launching my publishing career. In 2010, I finished The Writing on the Wall, my last novel-length Spuffy story of that era, and began working exclusively on original work, published under my penname, Rosalie Stanton.

In 2017, when the 20-year anniversary rolled around, I got nipped by the fandom bug and returned to start a new story and finish two of my abandoned WIPs. As of right now, I am completely back in the saddle. While I do plan to continue publishing as Rosalie Stanton, fandom gives me something I don’t get elsewhere—something I didn’t realize I’d missed until I returned.

I am 100% a romance writer, which means I live for HEAs. As is evident in all of my fics. I am also a proponent of finding a way to make sure the HEA sticks, either by immortalizing Buffy or mortalizing Spike. This, by the way, is why so many of my fics had claims in them. It was an easy way to get that. Though I'm going to see about being more creative in future works.
