Author has written 34 stories for Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, StarTrek: The Original Series, StarTrek: The Next Generation, and Emergency.

Not putting in too much - food for the flamers - just wanted to say how much fun it is to write and have some really great folks read my stuff, actually take time to comment on it! Even criticism is great when it's meant to help. I've met some really lovely people on this site.

You can tell what my loves are by reading my stories and poems. There are others, but as I don't write them very well, I won't list them here. Let's just say I enjoy mostly the writings of authors of previous generations, and TV shows of my youth. You could say I feel out of place in our current culture - the writing helps that, where I can disappear within the worlds of Tolkien and others. I love C.S. Lewis, too, but I have not ventured into that genre.

Great forum for writers.
