Author has written 6 stories for Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles.

I am an aging retired American of more than a certain age. Professionally, I have been both a teacher and a lawyer. In my increasingly distant youth I harbored a fantasy about becoming a writer. Unfortunately I lacked the requisite amount of personal commitment and self discipline to transform fantasy into reality. It was not until I encountered the world of TSCC fan fiction that the old dream returned. As anyone who knows me can attest I am a hopeless romantic although some less kind have used the description of sloppy sentimentalist. For those familiar with Shakespeare my choice of pen name is probably revealing. Like most males between puberty and dementia, I find Summer Glau completely adorable. Any potential reader whose taste runs to hard core science fiction, detailed weapon description or tragic outcomes is not likely to find much to like in my work. I believe in love, heroism, personal devotion and as happy an ending as context will allow. The world does not always give us those things. In my writing I try to provide some solace to those disappointed by cold reality. In an age of cyber-sophistication I am a technological Neanderthal. Consequently it should not be a surprise when I say that without the unbelievable kindness of others, none of my work would be available on line. The remarkable Talli b, the uncrowned Queen of the genre, edited and posted my first stories. My friend Brendan Stallard a/k/a UNCOMMONER has provided me with more encouragement and support than anyone can deserve. Both are gifted writers whose work should be explored and savored by any serious reader of fan fiction. Some debts can never be repaid. They can only be acknowledged. UPDATE February 13,2012. Today my first ebook, Ghosts in the Heart, became available on Amazon and at the Bookstore. The story is best described as a paranormal love story that I hope would appeal to the same readers who have enjoyed my fan fiction. It is published under my real name, Michael Keller. If any of my readers try the book, I would love to have some unvarnished and candid feedback.http:///Ghosts-In-the-Heart-ebook/dp/B0078IMNXO Further UPDATE 2014. I have recently published a three novella collection titled Variations which is also available as ebook from Amazon.

Before Cameron Met John by uncommoner reviews
Time shifting story of the period BEFORE Cameron met John. There are some meetings, and passings, but no major Jameron. It is important for their development, and eventually all four stories will become their tale.
