Author has written 11 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Matrix, 24, Warcraft, X-Men, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Angel.

Just a fan fic writer who's been kicking about for the last 15 odd years (time doesn't half fly sometimes). I have a massive love of genre fiction in general, and often have a lot of ideas, but few of them see the light of day and those that do often go unfinished due to real world distractions getting in the way.

I'm currently reviving some of my earliest fics in the form of 'Legacy of Callisto' stories for Xena. They were some of my first works, and I find them pretty cringe worthy when I tried to re-read them recently. I originally planned to just go back and buff them up a bit. Give them a bit of a spring clean so to speak. I ended up with the desire to completely re-write them (partially due to the original files being lost to a hard drive crash) and out of a desire to just tell better stories using the character.

For those of you who enjoyed my Incomparable X-Men chapters, I do plan to return to it when I have time and can crack the story progression a little better. It's actually quite a complicated plot going on in that one, and I realised if I just kept on plugging at it, I'd write myself into a hole that would effectively kill the story.

I also have a Star Wars fic that's been kicking around the back of my head for the last couple of years and I've worked on it at times, but I've never posted it here as I don't want to post it before I'm certain how to tackle the whole thing.

Any other unfinished stories here will sadly most likely remain that way. I will leave the fragments of them here for posterity (not that anyone actually reads them) but they are pieces I've long since moved on from.

Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the stories.

PS: Incidentally, to anyone who is interested, I am on the hunt for good and reliable beta readers. I've been through the beta system here on the website and sent a few PMs, but so far no joy. Anyone who is interested please drop me a line.

PPS: I've decided to finally take the plunge and enter the true age of social media with a blog and website of my own. I'll be posting all kinds of stuff there, including my stories. Don't worry though. They'll still be going up here too. You can find the site at
