Author has written 13 stories for StarTrek: The Next Generation, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Once Upon a Time, Babylon 5, Pirates of the Caribbean, Hunger Games, and X-Men: The Movie.
Age: 756. Or is it 759? It gets a little fuzzy after the first few centuries.
Location: On an island that keeps moving, a bit north of Rivendell, south of Minbar, west of Gallifrey, and east of Degobah. To get there, steal a little blue box, go through the wardrobe, down the rabbit-hole, take the second star to the right, and go straight on 'til morning. Then again, you have to be lost to find a place that can't be found - elseways everyone would know where it is - so these are more guidelines than actual rules.
Occupation: I'm a tailor on a space station. In my spare time, I serve drinks at the Green Dragon Inn. I dabble in Chaos Theory and am occasionally asked to inspect new theme parks.
Hobbies: Knitting, bird watching, teaching rabbits how to pull a sleigh, and spinning straw into gold.
Religion: Catholic, with a passion for ecumenical and interfaith discussion.

"I’ll never forget what it was like up there. All bleak and cold, it was; a few bare rocks with some weeds sprouting from them and some pathetic little patches of sludgy snow. Yes, it was just grey. Grey, grey, grey. The tree the old man sat under, well, that was ancient and twisted, the old man himself was as brittle and as dry as a leaf in autumn ... He just sat there, silently, expressionless; he listened while I poured out my troubles. I was too unhappy even for tears, I remember. When I’d finished, he lifted a skeletal hand, and he pointed. Do you know what he pointed at? ... A flower. One of those little weeds. Just like a daisy, it was. I looked at it for a moment and suddenly I saw it through his eyes. It was simply glowing with life, like a perfectly cut jewel. And the colors, the colors were deeper and richer than you could possibly imagine. It was the daisiest daisy I’d ever seen ... Later, I got up and ran down the mountain and I found that the rocks weren't grey at all. They were red and brown, purple and gold. And those pathetic little patches of sludgy snow were shining white, shining white in the sunlight!"

"All major changes are like death. You can't see to the other side until you are there."
