Author has written 12 stories for X-Men, and Burn Notice.

Hi there! I'm an under-employed Canadian academic who spends way too much time with comics, action-adventure television, and fanfic when I should be reading literary theory. But a lot of my "professional" writing (in quotes because I don't always get paid for it) deals with representations of gender and sexuality in superhero comics and other action genres, so it's kinda all connected :)

I read stories in lots of different fandoms, and try to be a vigilant reviewer. Though I cut my teeth writing Star Trek fanfic, this account collects my most recent writing, which is about the X-Men comics universe and the TV show Burn Notice.

In general, as much as I love my various comics, TV shows, and movies, I too often find decent character moments (not to mention decent romantic relationships!) missing from them, and that's one of the big reasons I dig fanfic. It lets you go behind the scenes and between the panels to explain things, fix things, or just re-imagine things. Which is awesome, because pop culture should be about us: the fans.

If you ever want to chat fic or fandom, feel free to message me here. You can also occasionally find me checking in with communities on Livejournal, Dreamwidth, and Comic Book Resources.

Thanks for reading! :)
