Author has written 1 story for StarTrek: Other.

Peace and long life.

Yes, I have slowly "grown out" of wearing pointed ears and a Star Fleet officer's tunic out in public... but as far as fantasy movies and TV and kids' favorite book series are concerned, I've never quite grown up. I live a very sane and ordinary life with my patient husband and my two amazing daughters in a small Texas city, but... long ago (1985!), I wrote the odd Star Trek universe story... just for my own fun. I was fascinated with the film character of Lieut. Saavik, and wondered: What brought her to Star Fleet? What would a teenager's daily, ordinary life be like in the 23rd century? (Regrettably, it looks like you might still have to go to school...) Would there be angst? Bad hair days? Guy/girl troubles? Paranoia about exams and evil teachers?

The story is posted complete and generally revised from the 1985 original... though like all Trek stories, there is always tomorrow and a new day. Readers - I hope you've had fun. Reviewers, thank you so much for encouraging and helpful comments; I really would like to know what worked/didn't work for you! ... I realize it's not the standard Trek story, since at times it follows the many other characters I've created for the school planet Akadem; however, it always comes back to Saavik and this time of growth in her life.

I am working on a 15-years-or-so-later story and hope to get a few chapters up before then end of this year (2014).

Live long and prosper.

First Steps reviews
Saavik is sent to the school planet Akadem to prepare her for real life. She gets more than a few doses of reality during her first year there, but the lessons do not go to waste. Remember, she does end up as a Star Fleet officer!
