Author has written 13 stories for Labyrinth, Harry Potter, Fairy Tales, Doctor Who, Babylon 5, and Alice in Wonderland, 2010.
I've been a Harry Potter fan since around the release of the 3rd book, and have been writing HP fanfic since the start of 2003. It's all short stories at the moment - I had a brilliant idea for a longer fic but the Muse went on holiday then eloped with the pool boy and I haven't seen her since. Some of my fics are archived on other sites because they're a little smutty to be posted here!
I've been a Labyrinth fan since I first saw it at the cinema and fell madly in love with David Bowie. (I was 14 - that should give you all some idea of what an old fart I am.) Much as I've longed for a sequel, it never occurred to me to write one. I've been encouraged back into Laby fanfic by some truly awesome writers - Scattered Logic, KL Morgan and white raven to name but a few.
My writing & stuff:
I've been writing since I was a kid. Most of that stuff is lost in the mists of time, thank goodness. I used to be the editor of the university Science Fiction & Fantasy Society magazine (geek, remember?) and did a whole load of original writing then, as well as the odd bit of parody. In the last few years I've moved house twice, moved jobs, retrained for a new career, got married, had a baby, got divorced... it's been a bit mad, which is why my writing has dropped off somewhat.
To any fans of my writing: I've been on hiatus for what seems like forever and I can only apologise to anyone waiting for updates of "Home", or anything else for that matter. The muse has returned - I am writing again and sincerely hope that I'll continue to be able to do so. Thanks for putting up with me!
On the taking-down and reinstating of my writing and journal:
This wasn't a cry for reviews. They're lovely, really really lovely. If you're reading my stuff and like it, please tell me. But I don't like to think I was turning into one of those people who holds their stories to ransom - give me 10 more reviews and I'll post the next chapter. I'm not a 14-year-old emo kid. I'm thirty-bleedin'-five. Old enough to know better, you'd think.
Thanks for showing an interest - it IS important to me.
