Author has written 24 stories for Stargate: Atlantis.

Obviously, I am a fan of Stargatge Atlantis. SG1 and Farscape(!) are also never very far from my DVD player. I am a writer and find myself diverting from my work to enjoy the works of others on this site and far too often find myself defenseless against penning my own.

Honestly, when you see me posting stories you would probably do me the most good by fussing on me. I justify my time here as constructive. I tell myself these are excellent writing exercises, but too often find when I should be editing other projects for possible submission (or starting another) the plot bunnies attack again and I fall mercy to my love of these characters.

Ahhh. I suppose there are much worse things in this world I could be addicted to...

See you out there!

BTW- I have put the Rift on hold for a while, I'm kind of happy with where it's at right now. I may start a second series as a spin off or add a few more, but right now it's at a standstill. We'll see if anything else become of it, there's a lot of potential there I'm not sure I have the energy to deal with at the moment. But the plot bunnies are making themselves heard, eventually they will force me to take action.

Final note: I did not have a beta for most of my earlier fics and (hopefully) my writing has improved over the years. I do hope to come back to these fics for editing and reposting ,but until then I can only apologize for my mistakes.
