Author has written 18 stories for StarTrek: The Original Series, Perry Mason, Major Crimes, SeaQuest, and Gunsmoke.
I write because I love seeing the characters that I love come to life. It makes the writing worthwhile when others review with simply, "I enjoyed your story.
I live in the Southern United States, but I love cool weather. Go figure. ;)
Most importantly, I have a chronic illness. If you need your stories all done and wrapped up with a bow quickly, read someone else. I write when I can. Snarky little messages don't inspire me. Most reviewers are kind, considerate people, but, unfortunately, trolls are everywhere. I feel sorry for most of them; they must be very unhappy people.
PLEASE remember, fanfiction writers do not GET PAID. I've seen some pretty harsh criticisms of some pretty cool writers. Play nice!
Peace be with you.
