Author has written 15 stories for Stargate: Atlantis.

I'm a huge fan of sci-fi shows. Loved Stargate SG1, Farscape, Firefly and Stargate Atlantis, which are my favourites. Haven't ventured into Fan Fiction before, but now the best shows have finished, this is the only place I can come to get my fix of new stories!

I do a fair bit of writing anyway - landed an agent last year who is in the process of plugging a book with publishers for me - but thought I would turn my hand to Fan Fiction to give me a break from my own work from time to time. (What can I say? I'm a writing addict ;) )

17.1.12 So, I'll first apologise for being a bit tardy making a tally of the results, but it's pretty clear that part five of the Deliverance arc will be the story I will be working on next. I guess that works since I'm still pretty much in Sarayah mode! For anyone interested, the next story after that will be the AU as that was second in the voting, then finally the sequel to The Three Gates. I can't even begin to imagine how long it will take me to get through all those, but it'll certainly keep me quiet for a while. :)

15.5.12 Just so anyone checking in here knows, I am still writing, but work and family committments mean it is a sloooowww process these days! Part five of Deliverance is still making steady progress, but I may have a short story to post soon as my muse recently bit me hard and told me to stop being so long-winded about everything. :)

25.1.13 For those of you still interested, Deliverance 5 is still being written. It's going to be an epic, I'm afraid, but there's a lot of story to tell. I'm currently up to 27 chapters and there's still a way to go. So if you can be patient it will appear eventually...either that or I would have to start posting veeery slowly and that could make for a very frustrating wait between chapters for you lovely readers!

26.5.13 And I'm still writing... I'm sorry it's been such a long wait but I'm up to 42 chapters and still going. What can I say? Deliverance 5 is a story of epic proportions!

14.7.13 Okay, people! A quick heads-up. I may start posting Part 5 of the Deliverance saga in just a couple of weeks. It will be probably no more than one chapter a week to begin with while I complete things, but I really don't want to keep people waiting any longer. So if you need to reread to remember where we're up to, now is the time. Or if you haven't read any of them before start wading through them now and you might be ready just in time for the final instalment to begin!
