Author has written 4 stories for Homer, and Covert Affairs.

Hi, and thanks for stopping by.

I'm a TAG teacher currently splitting my time between Montreal, Canada (summer) and Florida's Treasure Coast (school year). I'm a history geek, lingua-nerd (waves bits of parchment as proof), and creative spirit who loves to play with the Muses. I'm also mom to two grown boys, grandma to an adorable baby boy, and the adoptive mom/factotum of three dogs and two cats of indeterminate pedigree, hence the handle "Mutts and Moggies".

I enjoy feedback, and am always open to constructive criticism and corrections (NOT open to flamers and haters, though). I consider the stories I post as the first presentable drafts, and try not to pay too much attention to my inner censor. The plan is always to go back after the whole thing is done and make the necessary changes and corrections. So, please don't feel offended if you don't see your suggestions right away.

Interests:

Reading, writing, history, languages, travel, food, music, art, dance, theatre, SCA (yes, I am a dork!)

Likes:

Writers: Fiction - Shakespeare, Austen, Atwood, Tolkien, Sharon Kay Penman, Anya Seton, Edith Pargeter (Ellis Peters), Neil Gaiman, Bernard Cornwell, John LeCarre, Frederick Forsythe. I also read a LOT of children's and young adult fiction.

Non-fiction writers: Marcus Aurelius, David Christian, Stephen Runciman, Barry Cunliffe, Bill Bryson.

Music: all over the place... classical, jazz, folk, world music, classic rock. Current faves: Loreena McKennitt, Elliott Park, Adele, Sarah Bareilles, Florence and the Machine, Vijay Iyer, Josh Groban, Joni Mitchell.

TV: Covert Affairs, Spooks (MI5), Mission Impossible (the classic tv series), Sharpe, The Prisoner. Do we detect a recurring theme here?

Favorite movies: Always changing, but for today...The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Prince of Persia, Brannagh's Henry V, Kingdom of Heaven, Mongol, Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet, Troy, Some Like it Hot, Metropolis, anything by Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton.

Dislikes:

Long, rambling authors' notes. Same goes for apologetic author's notes. If you don't think your work is worth posting... don't post. If you do post, then take pride in your work and be open to constructive criticism.

Coercion: If you're holding your fic hostage for reviews, forget it. I won't review. I won't even read it.

AU and OOC fics where the characters bear little or no resemblance to the canon. This includes slash when the characters weren't originally written as gay. If you're going to stray so far from the canon that the characters, plot and setting are unrecognizable, why not make a few more changes and post an original piece instead.

Sloppy spelling and grammar: We all make typos, but if you know or even suspect that your spelling or grammar are faulty, have someone proof-read your work. Don't let the errors detract from the wonderfulness of your story.

Excessive angst. A little goes a long way.

Gratuitous sex and violence: They have to move the plot forward, not replace the plot or act as a filler.

In Progress: I'm a slow writer, sorry 'bout that, but I always finish what I start... eventually ;)

For King and Country - AU historical fiction - The DPD transposed to Plantagenet England. Based on true historical events.

In the works: These stories may or may not ever see the light of day -

Body and Soul - a series of one-shots inspired by jazz classics. Some already written. Some buzzing 'round in my head.

When We Were Young - (pre-writing) - Drama/suspense/hurt-comfort. My idea of what may have happened in Tikrit after the ambush. Prequel to The War at Home. Was canon before CA ep. 3.15 came along and spoiled my perfect little fantasy.
