Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter, StarTrek: Voyager, and Tale Spin.

I am a 56 year old electrician in Wisconsin.

I was introduced to fan fiction by my daughter.

My greatest suspicion about fan fiction is that the best book seven has already been written by either chem prof, mcjazzman32, Gabilian or Schlamboozle.

I doubt I can do as good a job as any of them but I think my story is OK or it wouldn't be here. I hope to have at least a chapter a week but that's been hard to meet, lately. I started this story near the end of 2006 and hope to finish it by the end of 2015. After it is done, I also plan to do a limited re-write to fix my poor grammar and spelling. The Mature rating isn't for foul language or explicit sexual situations, but for mature themes. The situations and losses experienced are, in my opinion, too intense for some younger readers.

Please note that Harry Potter and the Story by Dad is not Book Seven compliant since I started it a year before book seven came out.

I try to answer all reviews. I can't respond to anonymous reviews, so if you ask questions, please sign in. Also, if you have private messaging turned off, I can't reply.

To all of my faithful readers, I have not abandoned this story. I work on it whenever I can. Unfortunately, I have been on 7 day weeks for about 4 years and with 2 part time jobs on top of that, I have little time left. I am also a new grandfather which also takes up a surprisingly large amount of time.

We just (January 2016) went back to 5 day weeks for a bit so I hope to put out the next, nearly complete chapter soon.

That didn't last long. Back to seven day weeks almost right away.

I retired from running the Breakfast with Santa this year and only do the photos with Santa. Retired from the Easter Egg Hunt a few years ago. It's tough getting old, but at least you can cut back on some of your extra work without feeling bad.

As of this update to my profile (Nov. 13, 2016), I am working on Chapter 145, but have to decide whether or not to include some story arcs that I would like to do that would add many more chapters than just cutting to the chase.

Don't give up hope.

Soul Searching by chem prof reviews
Begins right after HBP and goes through summer. Besides searching for Horcruxes, focus is on the relationship between Harry and Hermione. They are the main characters, but it's not necessarily a romantic relationship. Some HG romance in the background.

Tale Spin - A Story of Polio
This is a story of someone getting polio in 1940. In this case, it is Becky. It is an interesting way to study how people dealt with a horrible virus before the vaccine. It doesn't have much of a happy ending, but it shows the perseverance of the human spirit in the face of terrible circumstances. All I can say is thank God that Polio is no longer ravaging the human race.

Thembria is at it again. They want to take over Cape Suzette. How will it all turn out? A short story, but I enjoyed it.

Tale Spin - Issues of the Heart
A complicated Becky and Baloo story that reveals suppressed parts of both of their pasts. They end up helping each other get through some very tough times.
Tale Spin - Rated: T - English - Angst/Family - Chapters: 1 - Words: 8,248 - Published: 5/8/2023 - Complete
Tale Spin - The Gulag
Another fairly short Tale Spin Story. It involves Becky and Baloo falling into great misfortune and eventually coming out much better than they had hoped. It is several chapters in one upload and is complete as published. I have a few others that I might pass along if they seem to be wanted.

Tale Spin - Brenda reviews
This is a romance story of sorts. It will present the first real date between Becky and Baloo although neither intended it to be a real date. After Becky's mother points out the age difference, they have a discussion on what their future might hold. In the process, a long-ago part of Baloo's life emerges and they deal with it. Sorry to my HP fans, AI is bright and shiny.

Harry Potter and the Story by Dad reviews
A post HBP book seven substitute started well before DH. It is a HHr book. Ron and Ginny stay likable. I try to stay with the canon as much as possible and will eventually explain all actions and abilities. Please read the intro for more details.
