Author has written 4 stories for Quantum Leap.

“Nutterfly” – that’s a nut who loves butterflies…or maybe a crazy person who thinks her writing can fly! Actually, I’m a woman in her mid-50’s.

Trying to make lemonade from the lemons life’s handed me, I began writing as a creative outlet about 4 years ago. Short sci-fi stories are my preference (they can be found at fictionpress.com). Then I discovered the fan-fiction contest for the LeapBack2009 convention held in March, 2009. “What, me write a Quantum Leap story?” I asked myself. And answered, “Well, you could try! You’re certainly a big fan of the show.” Having never before been brave enough to submit any of my stories to strangers to be judged, I was thrilled to have taken 8th place with “The Logical Leap”. Not bad for the first time out.

Life – and other stories – continued, but I’d thought that was my one shot at fan-fiction. Then I got the Idea for a new story. Which means I’ll probably get more ideas in the future, but in the meantime I figured I ought to post a bio, of sorts.

I’ve only recently realized there is such a wealth of wonderful Quantum Leap stories here, and haven’t had time to sample more than a few. Perhaps because I’m not yet aware of the fan-fictional conventions pertaining to events after the show ended, I tend to write pre-Mirror Image stories. I also write with the assumption that the reader is a fan and knows what’s happened on the show.

Standard disclaimer for all my stories: The concept and characters of Quantum Leap are owned by Belisarius Productions and Universal. My thanks to all involved in making it such a great show that we all want to try to continue it in our own way.

I hope you enjoy my stories, and would genuinely appreciate any feedback you might have. I’m always looking for ways to improve my writing!

Bourbon on the Rocks by Madders Ahatter reviews
When Sam leaps into a young lighthouse keeper, he learns that the gathering storm on the horizon has more to do with his drunken co-worker than the weather. Unlike the story arc {3/5} also featured here, this story is post Mirror Image.
