Author has written 37 stories for Xena: Warrior Princess, and Devil Wears Prada.

I've been writing Xena fanfic as well as uberish and original fiction for what sane people would consider far too long a time. I'm also very proud to have been a beta reader on over 500 published and online stories and novels. Most of my own stories, short, long and inbetween, can be found on my webpage, though I am revising and rewriting those that I post on this site.

I'm a Canadian, though living very happily in Britain for several years. My partner, who writes under the name Lariel, and I now live in a big thatched-roof house that is mostly 300 years old, with parts that are much, much older. It sits on the side of a Roman Road in a very small village that once hosted kings and queens. We know we are very fortunate to have found this place and each other. Part of that is due to hard work and some is due to the magic of online writing.

I cannot say enough to encourage people to write and post. This is the greatest creative writing class to ever exist and it is free!

And yes, please! Feed the writers. It means so much to get mail, more than you might imagine, especially for those who are starting out or those who are trying to do something different or challenging.
