Author has written 7 stories for Sherlock.

“Who’s the bigger fool; the fool, or the fool who follows him?”

Obi-Wan Kenobi to Han Solo, Star Wars: A New Hope.

I am 25, female, live in Hertfordshire, England, have a degree in Astrophysics and work in accounts for an electrical company. Thank you, economic downturn.

I also love to read and write Sci Fi, Fantasy and Crime fiction, although not neccesarily in that order. A few more favourite quotes...

"Is there any tea on this spaceship?"

Arthur Dent, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The single most important question which must be asked by any British person when abducted by aliens.

"We’re running a bit low on a few odds and sods."
"Like what, Hol?"
"Cow’s milk, for a start. Ran out of that yonks ago. Fresh and dehydrated."
"So what kind of milk are we on now?"
"Emergency backup supply. We’re on the dog’s milk."
"DOG’S milk!"
"Nothing wrong with dog’s milk. Full of goodness, full of vitamins. Full of marrowbone jelly. Lasts longer than any other type of milk, dog’s milk."
"Why?"
"No bugger’ll drink it. And also, it tastes exactly the same when it’s gone off as when it’s fresh."
"Why didn’t you tell me, Holly!"
"What, and spoil your tea?"

Lister and Holly the computer, Red Dwarf.

Needless to say I have some unusual habits, yet all these socially acceptable people can't wait to pick up hammers and smash their food to bits. Normal people are so hostile.

Dexter, Episode One.

Knowledge = Power = Energy = Matter = Mass

The L-Space equation by Terry Pratchett, which explains why really old fashioned second hand bookshops are bigger on the inside. They distort the fabric of space-time.

Dark Times by Treenahasthaal reviews
Two years after joining the Rebellion Luke is shot down during a mission and ejects from his X-Wing in enemy territory. The events that follow lead him, painfully, to his first meeting with Vader and beyond. A father/son story although it might not seem like it at first.

Assumptions by j'ecrive.en.anglais reviews
It is John/Sherlock, but Sherlock isn't in it. John deals with some homophobic veterans. Rated for language, I may up it if anyone complains. I borrowed Tricia from the brilliant ScopesMonkey.
