Author has written 16 stories for X-Men: The Movie, Wolverine & the X-Men, X-Men, and X-Men: Evolution.

I am a slightly insane, short attention-spanned gal who joined the fanfic scene to share my thoughts and plots with other like-minded folks.

I write as a hobby and as an escape, but mostly I write because I enjoy it. I am not a professional writer, nor do I desire to be, therefore my work is not perfect. I write for fun. Pure and simple fun. Please keep that in mind while reading my fics.

All stories I post will be completed before I start posting another, just as all stories I post are updated regularly. I try to post new chapters within a week. I write the kinds of stories that I myself like to read – generally action-romance. I do not expect all my stories to be liked by everyone. After all, not everything is everyone’s cup of tea. If you absolutely hate something, simply stop reading it. Or better yet, write your own fiction. I will not change a story for you. That being said, I am open to constructive criticism, questions and positive reviews.

All my present fics are Romys (Gambit & Rogue) to one degree or another. I prefer to write my fics with minimal accents based on the belief that people’s imaginations are better than all my misspelled words and apostrophes. I write Gambit based on the comic book version rather than the early nineties cartoon. This means very rare third person speech. I do not speak French myself, but I have someone educated in the language that translates my words for me.

I love comic books, especially the X-men and enjoy the pairings of Rogue and Remy (Gambit) most of all. I abhor seeing them paired with anyone but each other!

I am also a huge Witchblade fan and have fast become a Sara/Jackie shipper after reading the ‘Firstborn’ arc. I enjoy a variety of other comics and mangas, but have never really desired to write any fanfics following those.

I have a Twitter account should anyone be so inclined to search me out, my Username is TamaraTurner13.

I am also on Pinterest, my Username is TamaraTurner.

February 2013 Update: I have just been made aware that some people are harassing another writer about copying my work. I do not agree with this or condone this behaviour. Every writer is inspired by another writer's work, and as long as my work is not being copied EXACTLY word for word and plot by plot, it is not plagiarism.

April 2014 Update: As of right now, I am sorry to say that I am on hiatus from writing. With the birth of my second son in January, I just don't have the same amount of free time to write that I used to. Thank you to all my fans, you are fantastic!
