Author has written 9 stories for SeaQuest, Sherlock, and Red Dwarf.
Hi folks, a bit about myself... I am a 34 yr old 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.

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. Yes, even that.

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.
These stories take place in a parallel universe where the events of HLV never happened. I'm not trying to fix anything; I happen to love HLV for all I'm worth, but I foolishly started Borderline before I saw the episode and it just doesn't work if you place it afterward. The trilogy is centred around the relationship between Sherlock and Molly, but it's not like the Sherlolly you know... it's more bittersweet because it may not end the way people expect. It's about the reality of loving an addict, someone who is damaged. It's not going to be pretty.
In addition to my work set in the alternative universe of Borderline, 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.
