Author has written 12 stories for Musketeers, Strike, and Star Trek: Picard.

I shouldn’t do a lot of things. At my age (40-ish) I shouldn’t write fan fiction. I certainly shouldn’t write in a non-native language. I shouldn’t sneak away from two jobs and my family to channel my daily grind into stories no one pays me to write.

I shouldn’t do a lot of things.

To hell with it.

The good thing about middle-age? You care less and less about what other people think you should or shouldn’t do.

Let the good times roll.
