I'm a HUGE Tru Calling, Community and Haven fan. All three shows have totally inspired me in different ways and have made me think about a career in writing for television.
Future Plans: After I obtain my Masters in Screenwriting, I would like to eventually go on to obtain a Ph.D in Disability Studies. Ultimately, I'd like to be a television writer/producer/showrunner and a disability rights advocate/mentor/counselor, working in the non-profit disability/arts/media sector and teaching people with various disabilities about various forms of writing. I would love to create at least one supernatural strong girl TV series.
WORKS IN PROGRESS AND UPCOMING FICS
The Devil You Know - Basically this story delves into great detail about the aftermath of Tru's pregnancy and her spiral into post-partum depression. I don't know where this will go, but I want to carry out the same kind of dark, deeply psychological premise that has been affecting Tru during the previous two fics. This will give me a chance to explore the relationship between Tru/Jack/Jensen a lot more and also their relationship with Kira. I'd also like to explore the possibility of Tru having a second daughter once Kira is a little older named Clarity. I didn't focus on the Richard/Carrie stuff either in the previous story, so hopefully I can delve into that a little more as well. THIS IS THE LAST INSTALLMENT OF MY TRU/JACK MULTI-CHAPTER TRILOGY SERIES. Unless this one gets too long for me and I have to carry it over into another part or maybe even another series... Hmmm... ;) ON HIATUS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!! UPDATED ON 5/16/10!!
Relief - A multi-chapter Tru/Jack story focusing on the spiritual and romantic elements of their relationship. Jealous of Tru and Jack's burgeoning romantic relationship, an already dead and soulless Jensen shoots Tru. At the hospital, Jack and Jensen have a confrontation, which leads to Jensen keeping Tru's soul trapped in another realm, where he is being abusive to her. When Jack comes to rescue her soul, both Tru and Jack must face The Powers That Be and The Council in order to ensure that Jensen gets what he deserves and Tru's soul can be returned to her body safely. UPDATED ON 11/20/09!! ON HIATUS!
Seduction of the Savory Kind - She can't resist it. It's the most irresistible way to a woman's heart. I've already written this fic, but haven't posted it yet. One-shot. Lucas/Gail
"The Devil You Know" and "Relief" are currently on hiatus. In addition, I have several other ideas including but not limited to: some more Tru/Jack one-shots, a long-term Tru Calling/Community crossover, a Tru Calling/Haven crossover and whatever other ideas come to me as I think of them and I feel inspired to write them down and post them. Updates will be more infrequent now since I am in graduate school.
A special thanks to all those people who have been reading my fics for the past few years, months, weeks or days. I couldn't write or do what I do without your support and it means a lot to me. Thank you all so much!
