Author has written 13 stories for ElfQuest.

I got started writing Elfquest fan fiction back in the early 1980s. In those days, Elfquest fandom as a whole did not usually create stories featuring the elf characters from the comic itself. Wendy and Richard Pini had asked us not to, while otherwise giving their blessing to stories set on the World of Two Moons. As a result, numerous "fan holts" sprang up, creating original tribes of elves in all sorts of different environments. Some were very like the Wolfriders. Others were different in various ways. Some were very different...

The stories I will be posting on Fanfiction.net grew out of that fan environment. Most were written for one fan holt or another, whether or not they made it to publication in the holt's fanzine. Where a story has been previously published, I will make a note of it, as a matter of historical interest: AFAIK all these zines are long defunct, though I like to think the occasional holt member from days gone by will find these stories and reminisce. I also hope new readers will find them and get a taste of the way it was. Those were the days, my friend!

A drawing made by a friend gave me the idea of an elf with this particular bondbeast, and Plains Pride Holt gave me the opportunity. Originally published in Plain Winds #9.

Fatal Attraction
Plains Pride Holt's Desert Elves/Renegades setup cried out for a starcrossed-Recognition story, so I wrote one. Originally published in Plain Winds #6.

The Tumbleweed's Tale
This was the intro story for my character Fourhands to Holt of Restless Winds, so the frame story includes other people's characters from that holt. Unfortunately the holt folded before this or my other two HoRW stories could be published.

A Singer in the Starlight
Kestrel and Starsinger meet Fixed Star Holt, the first fan holt I joined ... though it and its zine didn't last long enough to publish this story. Characters other than Kestrel and Starsinger are those of other holt members.

Dreams
Second of the Hawkfriends stories, set several moons after the end of "Heartstrings." Being the last of his tribe may have a certain romantic appeal for Starsinger, but what if it isn't true?
