When I was at Hogwarts, I wasn't the best student. Oh sure, I was passably good at Astronomy and History of Magic, and not too shabby at Divination, but in classes like Charms and Transfiguration, I found myself becoming more distracted by how each wand might change or influence—just slightly—the results that were produced. Although my mother was a Witch, I was raised by my Muggle father, so wands, above all other magical items, have fascinated me as soon as I set foot in Ollivander's. Once I left Hogwarts, I sought out more and more information about wandlore: the creation, the materials, the different cores and woods, and how all of them interacted. Now, I'm an apprentice wandmaker, and I'm excited to finally be investigating and creating these fascinating magical items!
