Author has written 9 stories for CSI, and Snowy River: The McGregor Saga.
I'll just throw together a few things here for the intensely, or even mildly, curious. My "day job" is a junior high teacher in Washington State. My name is Laura, but I chose "rainiergirl" for my fanfic name because I can see Mt. Rainier from my back yard (until they build the new subdivision behind my house), and I am absolutely in love with that gorgeous mountain. I teach conflict resolution all day long, and in between those lessons I teach my assigned subjects of English and social studies. I've been at this a while, and all of my teaching experience has been in grades 6-9, so I am well familiar with confusion, angst, and rebellion. Comes in handy when creating characters.
Writing is a passion, and I've been doing it since I was a little girl. Before I was a teacher, I had a career as a journalist and editor, so the craft of writing has been a large part of who I am for a very long time. "Past and Present" is my first fanfiction piece written in story-telling form. I have many others that are written as scripts, the way they would read if they were to be made into episodes. I haven't posted them because even though I like them, they are for "corny" shows like "The Waltons." A great many of them are for a family show defunct these past many years called "Snowy River: The McGregor Saga." If anyone expresses an interest, I'll get 'em out there, but doubt those shows, especially "Snowy River," have much of a fan base. Just wrote them for the joy of it.
Okay, that’s "a few things." Good enough.
Update: I've begun to post my "Snowy River" scripts. I'm not sure anyone will think to look for them as the show has been off the air for so long, but they needed a home. They were great fun to write. If you're a "Snowy River" fan, take a look and drop me a line or two.
