Author has written 2 stories for Forever Knight, Stargate: SG-1, CSI, and Dead Zone.
Who is Tess Lucetram?
Well, I'm an alter ego, as well as a pen name. I was first conceived as an original character for a Forever Knight role playing game that can be found archived on Kristin's Forever Knight forums, and I grew from there. My first name is loosely derived from my original's first name, and my last is a combination of the Latin words for "light and dark." Oh, and I'm a 150 year old vampire. Did I mention that?
Music: Sting, The Police, Nickleback, REM, Enigma, Duran Duran, Pink Floyd, Bryan Adams, The Eagles, and on and on and on...
Books: Pretty much any fiction I can get my hands on, though Jim Butcher, Anne Rice, Terry Goodkind, Lee Child, and Piers Anthony make the top of the list. I'm also partial to the classics - Shakespeare, Dante, Milton, H.G. Wells, Stoker (of course), et. al.
TV: Love action/drama. Favorite show is Forever Knight, a cop drama (before they were cool) about an 800 year old vampire homicide detective trying to regain his humanity. It was way before its time and had the tragically short run of only three seasons. Boo hoo! Others are, Stargate SG-1, The Pretender, CSI (original), Leverage, Supernatural, and any others that fit that type/genre.
Movies: The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller, Sixteen Candles - are we seeing a pattern here? Plus, any Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns that you care to put on my screen. That man was hot in western duds! There's lots more, but that's what came to mind on first brush.
If you want to know more, well, drop me line. I may or may not answer you.
I've recently decided that authors who abandon series are evil. If you are considering abandoning a series, I urge you to rethink your decision. IMHO, there are few things worse than getting involved with a storyline and then seeing it shrivel up and die. If you're stuck, at least do your readers the courtesy of telling them that, so they aren't kept waiting and waiting for a day that might not come.
And another thing: their, there, and they're are all different words. As are: weary and wary, then and than, bear and bare, pine and pin, accept and except, choke and chock, along with dozens more pairs/groups. Plus, no such word as grinded. The proper past tense of grind is ground. If you're not sure which word you should use in a given situation, please look it up. Or IM me. Seriously. Nothing quite ruins an otherwise good story for me faster than constant bad grammar and punctuation, and I'll be happy to help you out.
