I've been writing, on and off, since I was a teenager, but it wasn't until the advent of the Internet (yes, I am that old) that I realised I could get other people to read my stuff. I do crossovers -which is possibly the lowest form of fanfiction, at least in the eyes of canon purists - because I like exploring possibilities.

I seem to have written a considerable number of stories over the years. Now most of them are interconnected as part of what some people call a Unified Storyverse. With this in mind, the curious or confused might wish to consult the lists below.

Early Work:

A Brisk Couple of Days: Xchange Students: Labyrinth of Amagor: Hellfire in New York

Unrelated Stories: Dark Knight of the Soul: A Doctors’ Dozen: Another Dozen: Forgotten Moments: In Search of Tranquility: Of Cats and Dark Energy: Spelling Mistake

Unified Storyverse: This list is in historical chronological order, rather than the order the stories were written - dates in brackets are the year in which the story is set.
