Author has written 13 stories for Sherlock Holmes, Misc. Books, Great Mouse Detective, and A Christmas Carol.

Okay, so having been a fan (total junkie!) of this site for ages, I guess it's time I actually had a go at this whole writing thing. If you're reading this bit, I assume you actually give a toss about me as a person, yadda yadda. If not, feel free to scroll down to the good stuff underneath, just as soon it gets written.

Right, introduction time!

I'm a married mum of four boys, 35 years old, living in Canterbury, New Zealand. That's right, the current earthquake capital of the world. You can tell who's new in town because they're the only ones diving for the doorways during aftershocks. The rest of us just sit back, yawn and enjoy the free entertainment... Seriously, we Cantabrians don't even notice anything that's below 4.5 anymore. It's a bit like people who live next to train tracks - it's only when the train's delayed that they wake up. Lately, we've come to expect the ground to move, and get uneasy if we don't feel at least one tremor a week. Weird...

Moving on. My main addictions on this site seem to be Discworld, Doctor Who, Dragon Age, Sherlock, Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century... a pattern is emerging... Oh dear, can we say 'obsessed'?

What else? My main hobbies, when I'm not practicing my skills as a UN diplomat on three tearaways, are sewing medieval costumes, attending medieval events with the Society for Creative Anachronism, playing the penny whistle, baking and (of course) reading and writing fanfic!

Oh yeah, and check out my new avatar, courtesy of Aleine Skyfire, who shares my disappointment at SH22 Holmes' uncanonical appearance - blue eyes and blonde hair? C'mon... If you'd like to see more of her artwork, go to

Updates:

I recently finished working on a lengthy Holmes mystery, 'A Study In Regret' - a dark tale, which explores what might have happened if John Watson had died at Reichenbach Falls after Professor Moriarty. To my great delight, the novel was accepted by MX Publishing, and is now available. Many thanks to my amazing betas, Assonant and Aleine Skyfire - without their support, the manuscript would probably be half-finished and gathering dust in the attic...

For the last couple of years, Skyfire and I have been working together on a Holmes / Doctor Who crossover series, 'Children of Time', which essentially replaces Martha Jones with Holmes and Watson as the Tenth Doctor's companions. Please come and check out our work, our joint writer name is Wholmes Productions, which can be found in my favourite author's list.

Those interested in more Starlock after that brief thread in the Christmas challenge, more of the same can also be found at Wholmes Productions.
