Osheen Nevoy: To anyone who is enjoying my writing (and if you are, thank you), thanks to my friend and fellow author Monika the writings of our "Star Wars Literary Guild" have their own web site. You are all very welcome to visit the site, where you can find my novel "The Adventures of Darth Vader" (AU where Vader survives The Return of the Jedi and has to deal with the perils of family life), as well as Monika's version of films 1, 2 & 3, her superb novella "Admiral Piett and the Great Ewok Adventure," and fellow SWLG member Kirsty's excellent "Boba Fett: The Unveiling." The Star Wars Literary Guild web site can be found at http:///swlg/ (I've previously had trouble posting URLs on ff dot net, so if it still isn't showing up as a URL, here it is more-or-less spelled out: home dot mnet dash online dot de slash swlg slash ) Or try a search under "Star Wars Literary Guild;" it should show up.
In fall of 2009 my husband, toddler twins and I moved out to Humboldt County, California, to be near the grandparents. I'm working part-time at a local history museum, have another part-time gig as a ghost tour guide, am involved in local community theater, and of course am being continually stunned by how remarkable and amazing kids can be (particularly when they're one's own kids!). Previous jobs were 3 years as director/curator at a 17th-century historic house museum in Massachusetts, two years working on the Historic Jamestowne project in Virginia and three years as director of a local history museum in a small town in Wyoming. I grew up in Indiana, did my undergrad work at UCLA, and spent four years at the University of York in England, where I got my MA and D.Phil in Medieval Studies. There I met fellow grad students Monika, Kirsty and Michael. The four of us formed the "Star Wars Literary Guild;" we three women wrote Star Wars fan novels, Michael gave advice and critiques, and we spent countless hours in the pub(s), talking about Anakin and Palpatine's drinking sessions, Luke's love life, and Han Solo's bathrobe. Strangely, people were afraid to sit near us in the pub. Michael and I have since married, with Kirsty and Monika as our witnesses. I have a terrible inability to accept the deaths of characters that I like, and so end up writing vast amounts of prose to bring them back to life.
I should, of course, spend any writing time I manage to squeeze out from the demands of real life, working on my various novels that I might actually have a chance at getting published. But fanfiction still keeps pushing its way back into my life. "Boromir's Return" took an amazing 9 years to complete. Next it was the turn of Dark Shadows fanfiction to take up too much of my time, as I worked on what I believe to be the first-ever Bill Malloy fan novel (I thought it would be a novella at first, but I should have known better). Bill was then joined by Gerard Stiles as a DS character demanding my attention; the DS 1840 fan novel that I still hope to someday write may just be the first DS fanfic work to feature Gerard as its hero (or at least its anti-hero). Here and there I've also taken a dive into Iliad fan fiction and other bits and bobs. Over the last couple of years, different enthusiasms have taken the helm at different times, leading me to write a "Casablanca" novella focusing on Captain Louis Renault, some further works of Lord of the Rings fanfiction, a short-ish story starring Dr. Serizawa Daisuke from the original 1954 Japanese classic "Gojira," and works inspired by my recent falling in love with various South Korean TV shows. Thank you to all who read and review, and I hope you enjoy where some of these explorations lead you.
