Author has written 8 stories for Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew.
Long-time crazy writer person who's into anything interesting -- I've been a 1-900 tele-psychic, a computer tech, a radio DJ, website designer, and a fraud investigator, with too many side interests to count. An artist, cartoonist, and writer who makes the Best Pizza In The World & who is owned by five adorable fuzzy cats, I've had two short stories & one real novel published, along with a huge backlog of original tales all mostly set in the same world.
My HB fanfic is based on the old '70s TV series, "The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries" & twisted through the lens of my original (published) universe, which feature the rock band Karma. The published Karma tales take place in more modern times (2000s-ish), but my HB fanfic (like the TV show) is firmly based in the '70s, though Karma appears in those tales as an established, famous-in-universe band.
Just quote the MST3K Mantra: "Repeat to yourself it's just a show & should really just relax". It's a paradox & I'm not even going to try to untangle it.
Karma only ended up in Voodoo Doll after I found out that FFNet didn't allow real-people fic. I'd initially used a real rock band in "Doll" & intended it as a just-for-fun, anything-goes crossover mashup for NaNoWriMo. By the time I found out FFNet's rule, Doll was done...so because I'm lazy, I just swapped names out with my fictional band and did some minor editing.
So far, my story order (in progress, completed, and planned) goes:
Blood Circles: Voodoo Doll
House on Possessed Hill (set 3 years before Voodoo Doll)
In Excelsis Deo (set 9 years before Voodoo Doll)
The Secret Santa Caper (sequel to In Excelsis Deo)
Blood Circles: The SF Vampire (set two months after the end of Doll)
Arson & Old Lace
The Witchmaster's Key (TV show rework of the infamous blue-spine. current tale, now being posted)
Wind That Shakes The Barley (my retake on "Last Kiss of Summer". not yet posted)
Heritage (Not yet posted: Frank & Joe search into Kris's past, only to uncover secrets that could rip their lives apart)
The Secret of Ferngully Road (Not yet posted. Another '70s-show-as-kids tale: haunted Ferngully Ravine holds an even deadlier secret...)
Words (Not yet posted, set a few months after "House On Possessed Hill". A prequel to "Creatures")
Creatures That Came On Sunday (yeah. The aliens episode. planned)
Dangerous Waters (a re-take on the 3rd season ep of the same name and a sequel to 2nd season "Acapulco Spies"; the revenge of Alexander Cartel. Tentative work in progress)
Today (Not yet posted, work in progress)
Rocky Mountain High (Not yet posted, work in progress)
Wipe Out (Not yet posted.)
Yes, I really DO have this many projects in the air. It helps the creativity! I get stuck on one story, I move on and work on another. It really does help smash writer's block in its tracks.
