Author has written 30 stories for Fringe, Castle, Happy Days, Bones, Body of Proof, and M*A*S*H.
Delivering a story pitch has got to be the most nerve-wracking thing I have ever done in my career. I failed miserably that one time.
I can say I used to watch cartoons at work all day.
I was never very good at writing. It's ironic that it's how I've chosen to express myself.
Writing has given me much insight into the creative process. It's amazing how the story will change from inception to the next chapter; the result is sometimes better than planned. (What would Marzipan Meadows do? - Episode of animated TV show Spliced)
If by chance, I come across your profile, I will read your stories.
Fan Fiction has helped me to try writing original work at Fiction Press. My FP pen name is guppylove. http://www.fictionpress.com/u/731861/
Not working. Still writing. Suffice to say I didn't win at NaNoWriMo. I am more comfortable writing short stories anyway.
Original fiction - In progress.
Fanfiction - Body of Proof. Concept only.
The Wizard of Oz community event was great. The scenes came together smoothly. I was impressed with visuals created with backdrops, the sets, as well as the smoke and mirror involved in theatre productions. Of course, there were some glitches, fortunately this experience hasn't dampened my desire to write a play of my own some day.
I have In Kind, Heart, and Fear Not Death on my Kobo eReader(TM) to share with friends.
Favourite Music: opera (Carmen), show tunes (Oliver!), TV theme songs (Dallas).
Favourite Films: Silent. There is something very basic about this form of storytelling. It embodies a fine balance of dialogue and action. (The Goddess, a Chinese movie starring the legendary Ruan Lingyu.) There is even a biopic of her brief career called.
Favourite Animation Style: Stop Motion. Something I can do in my spare time. I've made a few scenes using polymer clay and paper. (Anything worthwhile will end up on Youtube.) My channel is Xindilini.
Favourite Puppeteer: I am a big fan of Ronnie Berkett, who is famous for his one man marionette plays. His work is dark and poignant.
Asian Heritage: I grew up in the west. Yet I have strong ties to the East. I've been learning more and more about my culture, particularly through the performing arts. What I find most interesting is that each individual embrace a unique balance of both influence.
Please Don't Make Me Go (Bones) - It's difficult to ignore Vincent Nigel-Murray's cries to live.
I Am Spock (Fringe) - Started with the skant, and I delivered the Trekkie perspective in a series of short takes. I am a regular convention veteran.
Fear Not Death (Fringe) - Started out with the line, "I'm not afraid to die." The answer to all the hate for alt Olivia was to show sympathy.
Remember Me (Fringe) - My personal favourite. It introduced my first take on Olivia's alternate universe mother.
The Promise (Fringe) - Post season 2 AU. I had the most fun writing this one. The idea came quickly. Inspired by watching 15 minutes of Prime Suspect, it takes place mostly Over There. It was also the second time I used Mother Dunham in a story. She was my muse. Since I didn't know who was eventually cast to play her, I modeled her after Patty Duke. Using what I have seen of Prime Suspect: The Final Act and Comedy Relief special, I modeled Olivia after Jane Tennison.
First Ten Years (Fringe) - A prequel to The Promise, I realized now it qualifies as a fantasy. It was the first multiple-chapter fiction where I did not rush to finish. There is a forward flow to the story, but each chapter can be viewed as a standalone in a series. You wouldn't miss anything by skipping a chapter. That's probably why it was so enjoyable to write.
Heart (Fringe) - Personally, my #1 FAVORITE MULTIPLE CHAPTER. Not a typical AU. Inspired by Fritz Lang's Metropolis. I wanted to envision the native alternate universe with Peter still in it and to see how he eventually deals with the out-of-control Walter. Imagining this required discarding a lot of ideas.
Bedrock (Fringe) - Post season 3 AU. It has Sam Weiss and Fred and Wilma. I haven't really thought it through yet. To be continued.
