Author has written 19 stories for Torchwood, Blakes 7, and Doctor Who.
I'm an old(ish) scientist who remembers Blake's 7 the first time around, thought Tom Baker was THE Doctor (until David Tennant appeared and gave him a run for his money - David has the edge) and has recently rediscovered writing fan fiction in my non-existent spare time.
I'm a Yorkshire lass with a husband and 6 year old daughter who is named after a character from one of my favourite Sci-Fi shows (don't worry she won't be ashamed to use it as an adult, I'm not cruel).
And what do I watch? Well, currently the DVD cabinet is bursting at the seams with (in no particular order):
I'm seriously into Torchwood at the moment (hence the story Purpose in All Things and its sequels) and am loving Steven Moffat's take on the eleventh Doctor (MS makes a brilliant Doctor but for me I still think DT was the One). I just want to put my two-pennyworth in about the 'RTD killing Ianto off/Gwen is fireproof' debate. I can see why he did it. I don't like that he did it. But I can see why he did. Without RTD there would have been no Torchwood, no Jack, no Ianto and no new Who so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. It annoys me Gwen is seemingly untouchable but RTD has said in the past that Torchwood is actually about Gwen's journey so if Gwen goes I guess Torchwood would go too and I'm not ready to let go yet. Update - After watching the travesty that was Miracle Day, I'm finally ready to let go of canon and live in an AU instead!
B.T.W. I've got all of the TW audio books/plays on my ipod at the mo. The Sin Eaters read by Gareth David-Lloyd is phenomenal, as is In the Shadows read by Eve Myles (give it a chance, you'll never be able to hear 'Ring-a-ring-a-roses' without shivering again. And Jack in hell - oh god). But the pinnacle of Torchwood drama is the audio play The Dead Line. If you are a big Janto fan (and let's face it who isn't) don't listen to this while driving - you will crash the car as you sob your heart out at Ianto's speech! You have been warned... And if you don't heed that warning heed this one, if The Dead Line made you cry The House Of The Dead will turn your heart inside out and wring every last tear from you... James Goss, thank you for knowing exactly what words will make me weep and not being afraid to write them! And to John and Gareth for knowing exactly how to say them.
Currently I'm working on... (when I get a moment between work and being a mum!)

An Unacceptable Risk? - A (hopefully) humourous one-shot set somewhere in the middle of series 2. Jack has to make a decision which will affect the whole team. Just what is he willing to risk? - Complete

Purpose In All Things (PIAT) AU - In timeline and recommended reading order
Purpose In All Things - A post CoE fix-it which sees Jack and Ianto reunited (of course, otherwise it wouldn't be a fix it) - but how is the Doctor involved, and why is Donna Noble about to save the world yet again? This will also set up my AU for some later fics. - Complete
Purpose In All Things: Tapestry of Words - The missing story of Jack, Donna and John Hart from PIAT told as a series of letters. Coming soon.
Purpose In All Things: Your Move - Jack's dead... again, and Ianto is trapped with something large, winged and lethal. Just your average Torchwood day then... A one-shot set about six weeks after the end of Purpose in All Things - Complete

Gwen Williams and Donna Harkness (nee Noble) go head to head as mothers of the groom and bride respectively, with added Sylvia Noble for effect! A Jack and Ianto Harkness-Jones intervention will be required... In progress. Still on hold due to damned writer's block!
Purpose In All Things: A Glimpse Of The Abyss - A bleak little one-shot piece set in the post-Purpose universe about Jack. Can't give many details or it will spoil ending to Purpose for those who haven't read it yet. - Complete.

I'd just like to take this opportunity for thanking everyone who reads, reviews, alerts or adds my stories as favourites. I do try and reply to every review I receive although it may take me a couple of days to get there... ;o)
Also to the wonderful individual who nominated Purpose In All Things for a Children of Time Award I send huge thanks and big hugs. It's a real honour and I'm dead chuffed!
