Author has written 35 stories for Daria, Witchblade, House, M.D., In Plain Sight, and Harry Potter.

I write fan fiction for shows that somehow capture my imagination in a way where I feel the need to entertain myself further. Compelling characters, a compelling universe, and stories that stop just short of some indefinable something capture me. For many years fan fiction has been a not-so-secret shame of mine; I do sometimes compare us all to the creepy guys that lurk in 24 hour porn shops at 3 am. Sometimes we project fantasies onto the things we find wonderful that we've just got no right to.

But that's a human thing to do, I guess, and so we do it. Thus here I am, writing fan fiction.

I do write for the real world, and that includes original fiction and non-fiction. In real life, at this point, I write Pagan/occult nonfiction. You can also check my personal blog, but it's not really a place to grab spells from - more of a place to settle in for a long read, preferably on a tablet.

I am a rabid fan of Doctor Who and Daria. Doctor Who is, for the most part, sacred text to me. I won't write for it and I won't change it.

I have also written fanfic for:

  • In Plain Sight
  • Witchblade
  • House
  • Harry Potter - mostly to mess with my partner, who was profoundly disturbed when I took a dare to write a Daria/Harry Potter/Strawberry Shortcake crossover. It was a one-off; I believe the term is "crackfic." So much irony that in Dara fandom, that's the one that's gotten awards.
  • I also immensely enjoy or have enjoyed:

    Supernatural, Leverage, Being Human, Dexter, Revenge, Sleepy Hollow, Miranda, The Hour, Sherlock (to a point - Moffat seems to confuse women with cardboard cutouts representing his worst self), Veronica Mars (OMG just watch!!!!), Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Xena, Hercules, Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel, Dollhouse, Firefly, Farscape and so so much more...

    At present I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, a recent transplant from Minnesota. If you're old enough to drink - even if you don't drink - look me up.
