More than Anyone - Chapter Thirteen

Good morning, everyone, and Happy Thursday. Chapter thirteen of More than Anyone is now posted on Fictionpress so please, check it out for me and let me know what you think. If you have read it before, I have extended the conversation with Toby and Sadie so a little bit more is known about Toby and the crush Olivia had on him. I hope everyone has had a fantastic week so far and hopefully, I will be able to finish chapter two of The Sweetest Thing for the weekend.

More than Anyone - Chapter Twelve

Chapter twelve of More than Anyone is now posted on Fictionpress so please check it out for me and leave me your thoughts and opinions on it. Thank you very much in advance for doing that for me. I know I have not been updating like I used to but the weather is getting much nicer out - finally - and I find that my attention is difficult to maintain when I would much rather be outside instead of in front of a computer screen.

Also, I have so many different projects going on. I will update whatever I can whenever I can and what I do update, it will be based solely on my inspiration. I am working on chapters for both The Sweetest Thing and When Night is Almost Done as well as More than Anyone. I am also writing a Mark/Lexie story from Grey’s Anatomy over on so I am all over the place right now. I make no promises what I will update next. Just please. Be patient with me. Thank you.

More than Anyone - Chapter Eleven

For some reason, I woke up at 3:30 this morning and was unable to get back to sleep. So instead of staring hopelessly at the clock, I decided to write and chapter eleven of More than Anyone is now posted on Fictionpress. I added a tiny little scene with Harry and Anne and also, I have Ben meeting Maria Grange at the end - just very small additions but I love Harry and Anne so I love writing them and I also wanted Ben to meet Olivia’s mother for a later scene I have planned. Thank you in advance for reading and reviewing. I am so happy with just how loved this story is.

More than Anyone - Chapter Ten

Good morning, everyone. I have just posted chapter ten of More than Anyone on Fictionpress to those who are following this story. I know I have a lot of them floating around right now but as you all know, I write when/what I am inspired so hopefully, no story will go updated for too long. This is completely random and I think it might be because it is 6:20 in the morning for me but has anyone seen Adventures in Babysitting, this amazing movie from the 80s? Anyway, I was watching it this weekend and the little girl, Sara, completely reminded me of Lily from Soldier Boy, back-pack and all! Yeah... like I said. Completely random. I hope everyone has an excellent day!

The Sweetest Thing - Chapter One

There were many requests for this so I posted the first chapter of The Sweetest Thing, formerly With Me, on Fictionpress. Ella, Trevor, Brett and Joy are four of my favorite characters that I have ever created so I am happy to post their sequel to The Prettiest Thing. I also promise that I am working on both More than Anyone AND When Night is Almost Done so do not worry if you are waiting for those updates. Life is crazy at the moment and I am also writing fanfiction as well so please... just be patient with me. Thank you and Happy Monday, everyone!

I am going to be slowing down so no more daily updates. But I did update chapter eight of More than Anyone now posted on Fictionpress so check it out and let me know what you think if you want. And also, a massive thank you must go out to Lauren for making the gorgeous art work of Ben and Olivia. Thank you so much, Lauren!

You Found Me

At the moment, all of my concentration is being focused on More than Anyone and When Night is Almost Done but that does not mean that my mind is not churning with more ideas for future possible stories.

Austin Gallagher from A Pocketful of Poppies became a fan favorite and I must admit that I fell in love with him as well as I created and developed his character. I was not sure if I wanted to write a story for him but... I think I just might. The plot may sound cliched but I promise, it will steer away from that. Most of my stories start with a cliched idea but I usually stem off of it and I hope I can do so with Austin and his story as well.

Timeline: Five years after the end of “A Pocketful of Poppies”

You Found Me
by Templeton21

Their arrangement is simple enough. Friends. Roommates. Bed buddies. No strings attached and no falling for one another. They had shaken hands and agreed to the terms. But now Austin and Delia will learn that even the best laid plans can go awry.

Chapter One – I Can Feel a Hot One

The air-conditioner was broken again and the apartment was rising to a nearly unbearable degree as they slept, naked and on top of the covers. His arm was thrown heavily across her stomach and her legs were tangled with his.

It was a restless night for both of them.

Austin Gallagher kept tossing and turning and anytime she heard a noise through the open bedroom windows, Delia Bateman would open her eyes, tensing for a moment before her tired mind realized that it was just a dog barking or a car driving by with its stereo turned up too loudly. Austin had placed two small fans on the nightstands on either side of the bed and situated them so the air could blow on their bodies all night but so far, that was offering little comfort and a sheen layer of sweat still covered them both.

Summers in the city were always miserable. The relentless sun beat down on the high-rises and the black asphalt with little comfort or shade offered to the thousands of people piled on top of one another.

Austin hated the summer. The only good part about it in his opinion was that Delia always slept naked and usually in his bed - nothing out of the ordinary but usually, they were both too uncomfortable for sex and just slept together. Actually slept.
There was something comforting to Austin about that.

Those are just the first couple of paragraphs and I am trying something with the first chapter that I have never done before. It may work out. It may not. But I do not want to say what I am trying until the first chapter is complete. And of course, Justin and Poppy will be in the story as well since Austin and Justin are best friends. Would anyone be interested in reading a story about Austin? Let me know.

More than Anyone - Chapter Six

I hope everyone had a good weekend. My sister was in town and we always have a blast together. I was able to work on chapter six of More than Anyone, which is now posted on Fictionpress. I added a scene with Ben and Rose Kirkland, the widow of Evan from Better Together. I wanted to add her character to the rewrite because she and Ben had a special little relationship in that story that I wanted to carry on into this one. Please read and review it for me and thank you ahead of time for doing so.

More than Anyone - Chapter Five

Chapter five of More than Anyone is now posted on Fictionpress so please read and review it for me. It is a heavy Olivia chapter and there is also a new added scene with Olivia and Anne featured at the end of the chapter. I always wanted to show more of Anne in the story as well as how she deals with Harry and his close friendships with Toby and Olivia. Please read and let me know what you think. Thank you very much in advance.

More than Anyone - Chapter Four

I know I have been updating this story like mad but I just adore Ben and Olivia and I am eager to tell their story. The fourth chapter of More than Anyone is now posted and ready to be read on Fictionpress. Please review it for me. To those who had read the original, there is an added scene between Olivia and Toby, which is one of the changes I wanted to make to the rewrite. I wanted to add more scenes with Olivia and her friends, especially Toby.

Also, to those who are interested, I promise that I am working on chapter seven of When Night is Almost Done. I have not forgotten about it so please do not think that I have. In the meantime, please check out the update of More than Anyone for me. Thank you very much.
