Author has written 36 stories for MacGyver, Doctor Who, Stargate: SG-1, X-overs, and Blakes 7.

Hi. This is Beth.
But your profile says 'MacBedh'.
Well, 'MacBeth' was already taken, so I had to get a little Celtic with the spelling. And the 'Mac' is silent.
Why?
Duct tape.

If you're looking for the link to the current poll in the Dark!Laundry!fic, it's here: http://bethinexile.livejournal.com/38883.html. That fic has come out of hiatus. Come play!!

On to why I'm writing . . .

“Blame Lothithil”. I do.

You see, way back in 1983, I started to write fanfic – mostly Doctor Who and Blake’s 7 – and to edit the fanfic my friends were writing . . .

. . . and in 1985, I stopped writing.

I wasn’t any good at it. Not my gift.

I wanted to write. But darn the fairies at my cradle . . they apparently bestowed on me, instead, the gift of being a really good editor. At least, that’s what I’ve been told by the writers with whom I have been privileged to work over the years. And they should know! But no matter how wonderful a privilege it is to work with a writer, I never stopped wanting to do it myself.

Blame Lothithil. I thought I was just going to work with her as a beta reader/editor . . . but buried inspiration caught up with me, and her encouragement and support have smoothed the path for me. And it seems that I learned a few things over the last quarter-century.

So starting three years ago, I began to try again. Since then, let's see: three novels, two novellas, one short story, and a smattering of drabbles and vignettes. Over 200k words of completed work: not bad for someone who will never be able to write, huh?

Thanks, Lothi, for the priceless gift . . . it would never have happened without you.


Other stuff about me: I live in the US; I'm native to the Pacific Northwest, and am currently living in Florida, go figure. I'll get home eventually! I’m a voracious reader with a devoted and patient wife (who is also a fic writer), a background in theatre and a dubious past in folk music, inclined to optimism and addicted to wordplay.

I have a LiveJournal site, which consists of 'LOLMacs': LOLCats-style captions on screen captures from MacGyver and Stargate. The results can be seen here (no pesky membership or anything required): http://lolmac.livejournal.com. I post a new LOLMac every weekday, and will continue to do so for, well, as long as it’s fun.

I write about life in general and writing in particular on another LiveJournal site, http://bethinexile.livejournal.com. And I moderate a monthly comm for writers, http://fic_rush.livejournal.com.

I'm also a co-mod on the RDA Daily image community at http://community.livejournal.com/rda_daily/. My friends have considered intervention regarding my pixel addiction, but I usually manage to distract them with all the pretty pictures.

Also on LiveJournal, I oversee a community archive of MacGyver fic: http://community.livejournal.com/macgyverdeleted/ These are adult-rated MacGyver stories, including 'deleted scenes' from some of my own fics. You'll also find some lovely MacGyver/Sam Carter crossovers there, and anything else we can find.
