Author has written 10 stories for Garrison's Gorillas.

I'm British. No surprise for anyone who's read my GG stories.

I watched the series back in the 1960s, and loved Casino and Actor. I caught an episode on Youtube in 2010 and decided to rewatch the whole series. Then I discovered the fanfic.

I love ensemble pieces and am fascinated by the dynamics of male friendships. The disparate collection of characters here fires the imagination. The episodes creak with incongruities but are rescued by wonderful acting and interaction.

I still love Actor and Casino, and experience has made me rather more sympathetic to Garrison's predicament.

I enjoy doing the research that creating stories requires - the more you discover, the more you find you don't know. The deeper you dig, the more the moral and ethical dilemmas of the time become apparent. And history is written by the victors - but in 1942 we didn't know who the victors would be. Doing the research has enriched my intellectual life, and interweaving that knowledge into the stories while maintaining the integrity of the characters has become something of an obsession.

And like all writers, I love getting feedback...

Christmas Caper 1944 reviews
We only saw the guys as far as 1943 at the latest. How did their group dynamic develop? We can only use our imaginations. The following could probably never have happened. Could it?

The idea of this just appeared as I was reading a book. A fragment, a wartime thought.
