Author has written 96 stories for Once Upon a Time.
I've been writing fanfic a long, long time. Okay, to be honest, a long, long, long time. My first story--I just recently realized it really was a fanfic--was a cross between Island of the Blue Dolphins and The Black Stallion, written when I was 7. Then I discovered TV and started writing for The Monkees, The Man from UNCLE, and Alias Smith and Jones. In college I decided I should be a Real Writer, so I earned an MA in Creative Writing, with a specialty in playwriting, with a special specialty in comedy). But as I was striving to be Real, I was thunderstruck once again by some really good television writing, "Desperate Souls" and "Skin Deep" (and positively overwhelmed--and still am--by the--oh, there's no superlative strong enough for it--the beyond-amazing acting of Robert Carlyle). Real Writing will have to wait; I have Rumple to explore.
I still write comedy. Sometimes in the middle of angst. Can't help it. Puns are my potato chips.
“'Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'"--The Velveteen Rabbit, Margery Williams
