Author has written 16 stories for Torchwood.

I love angst and Torchwood - but only up to seasons 1 and 2. I also love the Big Finish audio plays, particularly the Ianto-centric stories. I adore the relationship between Jack and Ianto.

I teach Biology - and have done so for 31 years and counting.

I live in the UK.

I like dinosaurs and dragons. Also - cats, furry animals generally and butterflies.

I write angsty, plotty fics, with sex scenes where appropriate ... and I focus on getting the characters right.

Of all the cast of Torchwood, Gareth David-Lloyd is the one I follow most - have seen him so many times, at cons and stage doors, that he recognises me and knows my name, which is lovely. I've seen him in Twelve Angry Men (Bath), The Stick House (Bristol), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Cardiff), at Sex, Wales and Anarchy 2 and at numerous cons from The Rift in London to Miracle Day cons. I only wish his acting talents were better appreciated and that he gets those roles he so richly deserves.

Horizon by JolinarJackson reviews
Again, there are murders being committed in Torchwood's name. This time, UNIT seems to be mixed up in it as well. The strain on the team increases when Jack and Ianto's relationship faces a crisis, only made worse by Ianto discovering that he's pregnant.

The Bad Neighbor by firesnap reviews
Written for the reel torchwood Challenge. Rhys Williams knows there's something wrong with his neighbor. It's a shame none of Torchwood believes him. Contains: Canon pairings, violence and Jack and Rhys bickering while trying to save the day. Pre-CoE.

Ianto centric. There’s something awry in the Welsh village of Addoedsbren, a bubble in the rift, a supernatural occurrence or alien interference, the team investigates.

Unplanned parenthood reviews
Previously posted elsewhere as 'WTF' - but this will be an extended version, with more chapters. Set pre- 'Something Borrowed' and a few months after Jack's return from 'The Year That Never Was'. Owen is still breathing and Gwen is still unmarried. Standalone - not tied into other fics at all. Contains sexual references, swearing, mpreg, angst and cliffhangers.

The Knight Templar reviews
Written for reel Torchwood, this is based on the Val Kilmer movie, 'The Saint'. Jack Harkness wasn't his real name - he'd forgotten who he really was, until he tried to con a Welsh scientist. The aftermath of his betrayal and his attempts to save a man called Ianto Jones helped him find his true self once more.

Season 5, Episode 1 - 'Flesh and blood' reviews
Written and sent to Kai Owen for the Miracle Day convention writing challenge. I failed in killing off PC Andy, but I think my idea would work. Characters not given to spare the surprise.

Jack should have known better when he saw the object on the Plass. Not sure if this should stay as a one-shot or go further ... let me know.

Ianto's day off reviews
A re-edited reposting from a while back on my LJ. Set just after KKBB, early in Season2. Ianto has a day off and Jack decides to find out what he's getting up to. Some strong language and domesticity. Fluffy really. No angst in sight.

When Gwen makes a foolish mistake, Ianto makes an heroic gesture. But where is Jack? Set shortly after Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, not long after Jack's return.

Red Herrings reviews
This follows on from the events of 'Bad Seed' - but that does not need to be read first. This is a team fic featuring action, romance, treachery, violence, threats, innuendo and fish. As always there is hurt!Ianto and comforted!Ianto ... along with oblivious!Jack and vengeful!Jack It starts with a bang and a cliffhanger. There will now be 32 chapters in total - the end is nigh.

Bad Seed reviews
A tiny seed falls through the Rift, but it grows into a dangerous problem. Things aren't helped by the fact that some members of the Cardiff Police Force have developed a hatred and distrust of Torchwood. Follows on from Fragmented, but you don't need to have read that. Teamfic with plenty of Janto. Rating changed from M to T - some violence, homophobia, swearing and adult scenes.

Fragmented reviews
My take on the episodes 'Fragments' and 'Exit wounds'. What might have happened if Gwen had got to work on time. Features John Hart, Gray and the Iron Age. This time it isn't Jack that gets taken 2000 years into the past. Swearing, violence and some sex.

Checkmate reviews
Sequel to 'Queen takes knight's pawn' although it can be read without reading that first. Takes place after 'From out of the Rain'. Ianto takes time out to clear his head. Then when Ianto returns to Cardiff he is being watched - and not just by Jack.

Queen takes knight's pawn reviews
