Author has written 10 stories for SeaQuest, Sherlock, and Red Dwarf.
Hi folks, a bit about myself... I am a full-time mother from the UK. Okay, when I say full time I mean 100% mother, about 40% freelance writer and about 25% cupcake wizard, so I guess that adds up to about 297% right?
Did I mention that I'm also bad at math?
My main fandoms in no particular order:-
Sherlock, Doctor Who, Torchwood, seaQuest DSV, Lexx, Red Dwarf, Firefly and Serenity, Hustle, IT Crowd, Absolutely Fabulous, The Mighty Boosh, Spaced.
My favourite movies of all time:- Inception, Equilibrium, The Prestige, Bladerunner, The Princess Bride, Neverending Story, Labyrinth, Legend, Dark City, Dances with Wolves, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, A Knights Tale, Sunshine, The Beach, Shaun of the Dead, Back to the Future, Krull, Third Star, White Oleander, Training Day, Boyz n the Hood, It's a Wonderful Life, Harvey, Chaplin, The Pianist, Schindlers List, Saving Private Ryan, The Holiday, The Reader, Demolition Man, Virtuosity, The Thirteenth Floor, Clueless, I love You man, Bridesmaids, Roadhouse, Dirty dancing, Brewsters Millions, Matchstick men, Moon, Grosse Point Blank.
The list of kung fu movies that I like would be too long to list here, but I have two words for you. Shaolin Soccer. That says it all, really.
I used to have a huge crush on Brendan Fraser, of all people, so I'll watch pretty much anything with him in it, even 'Mrs Winterbourne' and 'Looney Tunes'. Yes, even that.
Favourite authors include, Joanne Harris, Kate Mosse, Louis de Berniere, Arthur Golden, Tony Parsons, David Nichols, Alex Garland, Chuck Palahniuk, Jon Ronson, Margaret Atwood, Amy Tan, Jhumpa Lahiri, Dodie Smith, Mary Webb, Dickens, Wilkey Collins, Jules Verne, Doyle, Jack London, Laura Ingals Wilder, Mary Shelley, Poe, Welles and Wilde.
I've just started getting into Kafka and the Russian satirists, so if anyone fancies discussing the greats and their impact on modern literature and comedy, just PM me!
I'd just like to say to any Sherlock fans that I'm available if you need explanations or advice about UK culture. I also lurk around Sherlock filming locations in London in lieu of actually going on vacation. PM me if you need advice and I'll do my best!
Outside of writing, I enjoy teasing my husband and eating cake.
WORK IN PROGRESS
I am gradually editing and re-posting some of my old fics to bump up my bibliography. Most recent addition:- The Other You, a look at what happens when Lucas and Katie leave the boat... together. Next up:- Forces of Nature, a story of espionage, sunken ships and danger, with flashbacks of what went wrong in Ben and Katie's relationship. A semi-crossover with Lost, it will be suitable only for adults.
Starts with 'Borderline', an exploration of the contrast between geographical borders and the thin line between insanity and a healthy mind...
Part two will be titled 'Mainline', a more intimate portrait of what happens when Sherlock returns home to find the obituary of his old boxing mentor gracing the newspaper. Molly tags along for the ride and has a case of her own; who is 'Sherlock Holmes'?
Part three will be set after HLV and deals with the aftermath of Moriarty's return. I hope to treat the material a little differently than people have ever seen before!
I will be simultaneously producing a canon universe Sherline fic, exploring the events of the month Sherlock went missing from John and Mary's life.
My Sherline fic is now well under way and is titled 'Chuisle mo Chroí' ('Pulse of my Heart' in Irish Gaelic). All my other stories are on hiatus while I get this plot bunny out of my head...
It's a grown up story (written by a grown up) with proper characterisation and development, if you're into that kind of thing. I haven't pulled any punches with the adult topics and hopefully it will develop into a realistic portrait of a bad romance.
I will be posting incredibly slowly from now on, due to the fact that I'm going to have to knuckle down and do some real writing for a living and I can't keep indulging myself like this. At least we have another couple of years before the Sherlock plot moves on, hey?
