Author has written 14 stories for Cars, Goosebumps, and Five Nights at Freddy´s.
I'm 37 and am currently obsessed with Five Nights at Freddy's, and have been writing for the Cars fandom much longer than that. After my four sons are in bed I stay up late with a cup of coffee (or an adult beverage) and write. I have an affinity for Seventies pop culture, so I've set some of my fanfiction in that era.
Besides writing, I enjoy drawing fanart, reading, and running. I'm training for our county's first-ever roller derby team, which has been a dream since childhood. I do volunteer research for a website about missing persons and unidentified decedents and I have a project car, a 1976 Chevette, who will someday return to the road as a "rat rod," i.e. rusty but running.
By day I deliver newspapers and work as a store merchandiser.
I have a journalism degree but aside from that field, I've had a ton of jobs, some of them day labor and others long-term work but all of them have been valuable life experience and many have made their way into my fanfiction somehow. Case in point: I was an overnight student security monitor in college and I was supposed to leave the door to the security office open but nothing ever happened. ;) The summer after college I was a ride operator at a small amusement park and one of the best things was walking the track of the dark ride before it opened, making sure the monsters and critters (sadly they weren't animatronics) were all in their places and nothing had been thrown onto the tracks. So both of those experiences worked their way into ideas for the FNAF fanfiction.
Being a parent and writing for a fandom popular among kids, I feel compelled to say that much of my fanfiction is more appropriate for teen and adult readers than children. At least take the time to read it yourself before deciding if it's appropriate for your young Cars fan.
