Author has written 21 stories for Torchwood, and Sherlock.

Hi and thank you to everyone who has been reading!

Quick summary of me, not that I could imagine why you'd want to know...

I have a family which includes a cat, (who doubles as my muse - see my Avatar!) two turtles - and rheumatoid arthritis.

Only mentioning that because if you are kind enough to be wondering where the next chapter or story is - you can just assume that my hands aren't mouse-friendly at the moment and I will be back as soon as they co-operate. (Writing fanfic is my way of celebrating being able to use a mouse again!)

UPDATE 30/5/14

Have received a few lovely messages wondering if /when I will continue my Torchwood WIPs. The answer is I am still committed to finishing them both and am still working on them, if erratically. Thank you all for the interest and encouragement.
