Author has written 9 stories for Stargate: Atlantis.

I'm a woman from the Greater Boston area of Massachusetts in the US.

I've written 8 stories so far, for SG-Atlantis. I'm very flattered when people read my stories and make helpful comments. I never knew I had all these ideas floating around in my brain. It's been so fun learning to express my ideas, polish my writing, and learn from reading other peoples' stories.

My job involves business writing which is challenging but SO dry and formulaic. After YEARS of writing fanfic in my head, I started writing in Dec. 2011 on the SG Atlantis site.

I love a variety of TV. Some faves--Stargate Atlantis, SG1, Farscape, Buffy, Angel, Charmed, Dr. Who (1963 - the present), Man from UNCLE, Wild Wild West, original Star Trek, Star Trek: Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space 9, The Americans, The Hour (limited-run BBC show), Burn Notice, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Madmen, Dexter.

I also love well-done TV comedy, such as Barney Miller, All in the Family, M*A*S*H, 30 Rock, Seinfeld, Mary Tyler Moore, Dick Van Dyke, Weeds, The Big C.

Books--Sci fi, including Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clark, Clifford Simak, Harlan Ellison, and any cheesy pulp-fiction sci-fi I can find in a used bookstore. Horror/suspense by Stephen King, Dean Koontz, others. I also love short-story (or full-length novel) fiction including John Updike, John Cheever, Joyce Carol Oates, Flannery O'Connor, Willa Cather, Anne Perry, Anne Tyler, Elizabeth George. Anthologies are great, whether sci-fi or traditional fiction--great way to discover new authors. Currently I am reading the Left Behind Series (14 books, I'm on book 7 right now).

I'm also very fond of American History - books, documentaries, movies, walking tours, historic houses. I also volunteer as a tour guide for a walking tour company in my weekend time.

Strategic Retreat reviews
John and Elizabeth go on leave, along with several other Atlantis citizens. Things go very badly. A DARK story. OCs also part of this. Violence, injuries, and some suggestive sexual encounters (not graphic). Reviews appreciated!

The Prize reviews
COMPLETE. Sheppard's team, the Wraith, and a cell of Renegade Genii are all after something very valuable. But first, Sheppard has to have a really scary, really bad day before anyone is sure this Prize even exists, or what it actually is. Rated T for violence (including a VERY BRIEF scene of attempted sexual assault) and suggestive language.

It's Not Easy being an Intergalactic Space Explorer reviews
COMPLETE. The title says it all. LOTS of whump for poor Sheppard! When did his enemies get so smart? He, his team, and Atlantis are attacked in unexpected ways. John, personally, faces a difficult challenge from a mysterious alien race. Set in the Season 5 era.

Unseen Enemy reviews
Sheppard, his lover Dr. Lydia McKenzie (OFC from "Aftermath") and a science team are trapped by something horrific. If they can't stop it, then Atlantis and the Pegasus Galaxy are in terrible danger. COMPLETE. Suggestive language, a few curses, some violence and torture. Nothing sexually explicit. Chapter 5 rewritten (same basic ending though) Nov 11.

Aftermath: Finding His Way Again reviews
John struggles to recover emotionally after his terrible experiences on Earth. Anger and guilt are not allowing him to heal. Who can help him, if he can't help himself? This is a sequel to "Evil Intent." Please read that first, so you can understand "Aftermath." Thank you!

Evil Intent reviews
Sheppard is violently targeted as part of an insidious plot based on Earth. His enemy is not who you might expect. (July 10, 2013 - added some important scientific text in Chapter 7, which clarifies some things once you read the entire story.) Pls read The SEQUEL Aftermath - Finding His Way Again. Please read both and review!

Not Your Typical Hero reviews
A snapshot - John is brave with his team, but how is he really, when imprisoned alone? Challenging the conventional definition of a hero, as portrayed by John Sheppard.

The Arrogance of Good Intentions reviews
Sheppard, his team, and Dr. Weir face a very difficult reality-check when meeting a new, fairly advanced society. Partly inspired by Season 5's "Inquisition."
