Author has written 61 stories for StarTrek: The Original Series, and Incredible Hulk.

52, mother of three. TOS fan since I saw my first episode 'A Private Little War' at age 11. Love the triumvirate: Kirk-Spock-McCoy, so none of the other iterations of Trek ever did it for me. Just a humble reader, (actually never wrote anything in my life before 'Hell to Pay,') but was dared by two friends early in 2009 to write something, so I did - and then wrote some more, and some more after that...

Well, it's been over six years, and I'm still plugging away at this - for good or bad. Not sure where this is headed, but enjoying the ride so far. Thanks so much to those of you who have read, reviewed and/or favorited my work. When you're as new at this as I am, feedback of any kind inspires one to keep working, and improving, so I have all of you to thank for providing me with the determination to keep at this. :D Oh and yes, that's my little black dog, Max...

Okay, so I rediscovered my fascination with the TV series 'The Incredible Hulk' while laid up with a broken leg during the winter of 2015. It inspired me to write a story for that fandom as well, with others in mind.

I am a linguist by training - speak Russian and German, but haven't used either in a significant capacity in over twenty years.

Wenn jemand mir auf Deutsch schreiben will, wird dass fuer mich fantastisch! Jetzt ist das Begreifen viel besser als die Abfassung, aber wenn Sie wollen, werde ich es versuchen. :-D

Если Вы хотите, можно мне написать по-русски. Мой Русски теперь очень плохо, но Я буду пробовать понимать и написать к вам по-русски. :-D

Well, it seems I have written much more than I ever intended, with no signs of stopping in sight. Initially, I just wrote things as they came to me, but the pieces are starting to gel into a cohesive storyline – for good or bad. ;) In light of this, here’s a timeline which shows my TOS stories in chronological order, as well as indicating their placement within the TOS universe. Not sure yet if anything besides 'Persephone' will come to fruition for The Incredible Hulk. I have been remiss in updating this of late. I've rectified that, I hope:

An avalanche in the Utah Mountains throws a wrench into those plans, however. Can the Hulk help to make the girl's dream of seeing her family again come true, or will McGee finally catch his quarry?

Endgame reviews
A missing scene from 'The First, Part II.' David finds out from Elizabeth what happened after his creature made an appearance in the lab, and how this will impact his ability to cure his unique 'affliction.' I've tried to make this understandable even if the reader isn't intimately familiar with the episode.

David finds himself on a farm in rural Iowa, taken in by a generous elderly couple. After three weeks he's starting to feel quite comfortable there. Will an appearance by the creature force him to move on before he's ready? Comes sometime after 'Mystery Man,' but well before 'Homecoming.' Despite the title, doesn't tie into the episode 'Equinox.'

This is a companion piece to "In the Weeds," written from T'Pring's POV. It has been so easy to vilify her in fandom, but did we truly understand the challenges she faced once her parents bonded her to Spock? This is not a commentary on her behavior, but a look at the situation from her perspective—that of a seven-year-old who has just had her whole world turned upside down.

There had to be more fallout between Kirk and Spock in the wake of Amok Time than we ever saw on screen. After all, one isn't almost strangled to death – or almost strangles someone to death – without repercussions, right? What happened later, when each had time to really think about what had transpired? Each would have their own hurdles and emotional baggage to overcome.

The First Terrace of Purgatory reviews
I know this has been done to death, but this is my spin on what Kirk felt during Spock's death in TWOK, and how it fits with my personal canon. Essentially a H/C piece, heavy on the hurt, with virtually no comfort. Certainly not meant to be slash, but I suppose it could be interpreted as such.

Would the two be able to transcend their differences and work together to survive?

This is an immediate sequel to 'A Mother's Love' so it would be best to read that story first and was inspired by the free write entitled 'Of Sock Drawers' at Ad Astra. What does Spock keep in his 'sock drawer? Certainly not what you'd expect.
