When she's not online, Lady Norbert has published a few things under her real name. In addition to a drawer full of freelance magazine and newspaper articles, a blog, and a (currently inactive) WebSerialNovel called ''Literature/TheGraystoneSaga'', she is co-author of the children's book ''[[http://tinyurl.com/pipthemouse Pip the Mouse and His Magical Christmas]]'', based on a holiday tradition local to her home region in eastern Pennsylvania. She is also the solo author of a series of children's books called ''[[https://www.facebook.com/OakTrailExplorers The Oak Trail Explorers]]'', inspired by and featuring photographs of her mother's dogs, and is a former member of the staff of ''Website/IndieGameMagazine''.

To the internet community, though, she's still better known as Lady Norbert, author of a whole lot of fanfic. As of summer 2013, she's written close to a million words of the stuff - probably more when you realize that some of her earliest fics were taken off of FanfictionDotNet owing to space restrictions. [[note]]Back when she was new at the game, FFN had no chaptering feature ''and'' placed a limit on the number of fics an individual author was allowed to host on the site, so a few of her OldShame pieces are lost to us. Probably for the best.[[/note]] Currently, she is cluttering up the site with more than thirty stories; a link to her profile, for the curious, is farther down the page.

People have actually [[BigNameFan heard of her]] and this unnerves her sometimes. If you've seen the name online before, it is almost certainly the same person, as [[SecretIdentityIdentity there's only one of her and she's it]]. Most likely you would have seen her in one of the following places:

A [[TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse deceptively mild-mannered]] writer and [[ProudToBeAGeek unrepentant geek]], Lady Norbert is known to many as the internet's designated TeamMom. Many of her friends regard her as a {{real life}} [[Manga/FairyTail Mirajane Strauss]]. Like Mira, she's mostly harmless... but BewareTheSillyOnes, because she is an unabashed MamaBear and, allegedly, ''terrifying''. ([[{{YMMV}} Your mileage may vary]].) This might have something to do with the fact that she has [[TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard an awful lot of titles]], most of which were given to her by other people.[[note]]These were most neatly summarized by a Tumblr user as "Her Most Serene Imperial Highness, Lady Norbert, Empress of the Internet, Knight-Commander of the Knights of Fandom, and Official Unofficial Mother of Everybody."[[/note]]

"[[/note]] She's kind of embarrassed by the 'Empress' thing, though, and would really rather just be called [[JustTheFirstCitizen Knight-Commander]].

* Most recently, a Powerpoint she created about the ''VideoGame/DarkParables'' series caught the attention of the games' developer, Eipix, who [[ApprovalOfGod sought her permission]] to use it as actual social media marketing, thereby pretty much making her entire week

As you may have guessed, she did indeed [[MeaningfulName name herself]] after the [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragon]] from ''HarryPotter''. However, she would also like to go on record as stating that she chose the name ''before'' [[SamusIsAGirl Norbert was revealed to be female]]. In fact, she's been using the name as her internet handle [[LongRunner since 2000]].
