Bio:
I\'ve been a Harry Potter fan since PoA was published in the United States. I discovered Harry Potter fan fiction while waiting for HBP to arrive. I read for years, but only began writing myself in 2007.

I live in the Northern Virginia suburbs just south of Washington DC. I am in my mid-fifties with a wife and three sons -- two of whom are also Harry Potter fans.

JKR\'s world is one of my most important refuges from the real(?) world of government bureaucracy.

Saving Harry by The Seeker starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 1036]
** Winner of the March 2008 Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Overall **
What if JKR had never intended the Harry Potter series to be for children? How would Harry’s time at the Dursleys been written? This story focuses on the years Harry lived in the cupboard under the stairs at number four Privet Drive, as well as his first appearance at Hogwarts. The treatment he receives during his decade there is not described in fairy tale terms. The boy who initially develops is not the Harry Potter we know. The story is liberally AU, with different personality traits, events, and relationships used to reflect the changes in this very different Harry and the environment in which he grew up. In the end, through the assistance of a certain redheaded young lady, Harry ultimately finds the life he should have had and rediscovers the qualities he always had inside of him. While I am not a psychologist or child development....
