Author has written 2 stories for Doctor Who, and Others.
My name is Tara. I live in Virginia, but I think I must've been English in a past life. I love all things British, and my current fascination--if it isn't obvious from my avatar choice--is Benedict Cumberbatch. I am also an avid fan of David Tennant, so you will find some fiction already posted regarding a couple of David's performances. I am working on some Sherlock fiction at the moment, but I will also be exploring some fan fiction involving some of Benedict's other characters as soon as I have the chance. I'm not particularly a fan of posting one chapter at a time. I prefer to post a completed story. This is because my schedule is so hectic that I would hate to post a chapter and then keep people waiting for two months for the next installment!
Currently I work as a business analyst for an insurance company. I am also enrolled in graduate English classes at NAU online. After this semester is completed, I will be halfway to my M.A. degree! Very exciting.
Here is a sampling of my interests:
TV (my MUST-watch list): Supernatural; Sherlock; Doctor Who; Copper; Game of Thrones; Suits; Justified. Other shows that I watch a lot but can miss without fussing about it: Criminal Minds; White Collar; Covert Affairs; NCIS: Los Angeles; The Mentalist; Law & Order: UK.
MUSIC: I like everything from classical to metal with only a couple of exceptions. I have a wide range of tastes, but currently I'm listening to The Death Riders; The Sheila Divine; Riddlin' Kids; Theory of a Deadman; Sick Puppies; Hypnogaja; My Darkest Days; Liz Phair; Paramore; Lovehammers (look them up - Chicago rock band, outstanding!).
MOVIES: Far too many to list. I hate sad, tearjerker movies (or anything resembling a sad "chick flick" a la Beaches). If I didn't love Benedict so much, I would probably avoid a couple of his as well, but alas, he is so ridiculously great in them that I suffer through with the Kleenex in hand. So here's my normal fare, or movies that I can't go past if I am flipping channels and see them on TV: Rob Roy (I did say no SAD chick flicks. lol); Aliens; Jaws (I am a fanatic over Jaws. I can almost quote the whole thing); The Godfather; Tombstone; Lord of the Rings Trilogy; Rain Main; Speed; Silence of the Lambs; and so, so many others. At one time, I toyed with the idea of becoming a professional movie critic, but didn't end up pursuing it.
BOOKS: Recently finished A Dance with Dragons (book five in the A Song of Ice and Fire series). Currently re-reading some Sherlock Holmes stories as well as Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake books.
