Author has written 50 stories for X-Files, Ashes to Ashes, MI-5/Spooks, and Downton Abbey.

Hi guys! Have been reading fanfic for since about 1997, and I've been writing since 2000 (although not all the early fics are posted here - they were a bit rubbish!). I mainly write for Spooks (Harry and Ruth) and Ashes to Ashes (Gene and Alex), though there are also some X Files (Mulder and Scully) stories on my account too.

They say to write what you know, and for me that is children. I have worked with them for over 12 years and they form a big part of my life so, inevitably, they make it into my stories. I know that not all people like the idea of characters having children and I understand that - please, if you're going to leave criticism, make it constructive. I am trying to branch out and not write so many stories involving children, but sometimes they write themselves in without me even realising it.

Please do let me know what you think of my stories. It's great to here what people think. Also, for those of you on Tumblr, I have my own blog on there, located here: http://theoofoof.tumblr.com and if you use tumblr feel free to folow.
