Hi, my name is Barbara a/k/a Babette. My children are grown, so I'm a very late bloomer to writing fan fiction. I didn't even know it existed until recently. I've always loved to read, so quite unexpectedly, I started writing in March 2009! I've never taken any writing courses, but I'll never forget the feeling of putting those first words on paper. I knew deep inside that this ability to write has always been there and now, I still feel the same way. Growing up with Superman on my television for decades solidified my love for superheroes, movies about superheroes, and of course, television shows about superheroes. You get the idea. I freely admit... iz a geek!
Maya Angelou: Love recognizes no barriers, it jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination ... full of hope.
Author unknown: Literature is a luxury; fiction is a necessity.

WORK(s) IN PROGRESS/STATUS:
Still on 'hiatus,' but I'm writing stories (original ones). Although based on characters I've written before, the locations, time frames, and backstories are different from my fan fiction. Still in the same future universe as 'To Love Again,' and 'Never Just a Dream,' this one will also have a psychic with his own unique challenges.
A quick preview:
Genre: Romance/Mystery: This will be the third in the series of stories involving psychics, their abilities, their friends and colleagues, and how they affect their lives. Steve Gilbert and Lisa Harris are accomplished spies, but they’re also in love. A few months ago, Steve went missing and Lisa is determined to find him. Despite the evidence, his missing body; no signs of a struggle or DNA; there’s nothing that will stop her from finding out the truth and in turn, hopefully, to find Steve. This story is told mostly in flashback form, meaning Lisa’s memories leading up to his disappearance, which may be the key to finding him. Not sure where we’ll find her after the memories fade, but you need to read to find out.
Currently writing chapter 10, the tentative title: 'Whatever It Takes'! Look for it in mid-March on Inkitt.com. The link is above.
Well, it's now been eight years (and nearly two million words) since I wrote my first fan fiction. The lists below are for readers who are new to my profile. And for those who've read my 'older' stories, thank you for reading and for the newbies, enjoy the fun, the angst, the drama and, of course, the happy endings!
Starting in October, 2016, only the top TEN multi-chapters will be listed. If you liked what you read, please comment or a favorite would be nice too. Thank you.

Clark Kent/Superman & Lois Lane (CLOIS), my all-time favorite ship, rules around here guys and rightly so. I hope you like these stories, and don't forget my older stories. I'm very proud of those too. You know it's true what they say:
The writers who succeed, ultimately, are those who can bear the criticism and critique, who can accept it, grow and improve ... and keep writing.
