Welcome to Tania's personal fiction archive.Updated 3/11/07

There comes a point in every archivist's life when they realize that while having more than a dozen sites is fun, it does not always make it easy for others to find your work. I have spent the last few years gathering great fiction from around the web into easy to navigate sites, often neglecting my own writing in my search for fiction that leaves me breathless. Keeping this in mind I decided it was time to bring all of my fiction together, to make it a happy family if you will, and put a bit of my focus back on myself. I hope you will enjoy...
