Author has written 22 stories for Janet Evanovich.
Like most of you, I am an avid reader and have been all of my life. I like lots of genres, with science fiction, fantasy and suspense as my favorites. But I also enjoy reading romance, mystery, thrillers and comedy, too. For some reason, the Stephanie Plum series, at least the earlier books, caught my imagination, and I became a little obsessed with the mysterious, Cuban badass Ranger. So obsessed that I did something I never dreamed of doing; I started writing fanfiction. I found I loved writing as much as I loved reading.
I've been writing fanfiction for several years now, and again, found myself doing something I never dreamed I'd do. I wrote my own original novel. I self-published it and it is available as an ebook at most online book retailers, and also in paperback.
For more details on my book, CONDOR MOON, check out my author website at: www. tannathornburg. com
There are lots of pictures of Arizona on my website with narratives about them. They are all of places and sights that Rima Larkin, the lead character in my novel, saw and experienced. I also added to my blog a few family recipes that are mentioned in the book.
I continue to write fanfiction as my obsession with Ranger has not waned. There's just something about that man. I hope you enjoy my stories. I enjoy writing them, and I enjoy reading your reviews.
The following is a link to a 'slideshow' I created for one of my Janet Evanovich FF stories "The Recliner." You can go through the pictures one by one or click on the word 'slideshow' in the upper right hand corner and they will come up in sequence automatically. If you would like to see my personal vision for the characters in this Stephanie Plum/Ranger Mañoso story, go to the following link after deleting the spaces: http:// www. flickr.com/photos/58714171@N06/
I like to travel, especially to out of the way places like Timbuktu, Pelucidar, Pern, Darkover, Ateva and Midworld. I usually fly but sometimes use a time machine or stargate (wish I has access to a particle transmitter). I belong to the Federation, the Compact and the Humanx Commonwealth. Some of my best friends are vampires, werewolves, wizards, hobbits, dragons, chieris, Hani, Ulru-Ujurrians, and of course, Merry Men. I especially enjoy exploring different cultures, both those of this world and of other worlds, galaxies and universes.
I love series because I become quite attached to my favorite characters and worlds and don’t want them to end. Some days I can only read light-hearted or funny stories; other days, I want the roller coaster ride that tears my heart asunder and, hopefully, leaves me sobbing with happiness when love wins out. I always like stories that leave me in awe that any sane mind (not that sanity is a requirement) could conceive of such wondrous, creative and twisted plots and characters.
The creative and diverse stories on this fanfiction site have helped me open up my heart and imagination, and encouraged me to spread my wings reaffirming my belief that I can fly as high as I can imagine. So please know that all your efforts, hard work and talents in writing (and posting to FF) are truly appreciated. With gratitude and hungry impatience, your devoted fan and reader. And now a writer myself!
I also co-write Stephanie Plum/Ranger fanfiction with a good friend of mine, sonomom, under the name The Pardo Girls. Check us out!
Another name I have written under is ThisNeverHappenedII, along with another wonderful writer, writes4fun_81. We collaborated with two other people to finish a story that had been started by the mother of one of the collaborators. The mother, Jude, had passed away before she could finish her much loved AU fanfic, This Never Happened, about Stephanie Plum and Carlos Mañoso. Fans had wanted to see this popular story completed for years. We corrected typos and consistency errors in the first part of Jude's story (This Never Happened Part 1), and then, with her mother's notes and past discussions in her head, her daughter directed us in writing the second part, This Never Happened Part 2. This was a monumental undertaking and it took us two years. The combined stories are the equivalent length of nearly 10 paperback novels. It is worth the time to read this emotional and uplifting story.
