Author has written 56 stories for Thunderbirds.
Why did I choose 'quiller' as a name? Well,a while back I discovered the mediaeval word 'rebus' - an image that represents your name (see, people were doing this long before avatars were even thought of!) and I chose the symbol you see here as a pun on my name (Pen). So when I needed a 'pen-name' 'quiller' was the obvious choice. And for some reason I think it looks better with a lower case 'q'.
What can I say about myself? I've now been writing on this site for more than ten years (where has the time gone?). I'd been making up stories in my own head for years, and always thought I was a bit mad. A friend introduced me to this site and - hey!- I find there are others like me too!
I've learnt a lot during this time (I hope), and made some great friends. Sometimes I think you who read my stories know more about the 'real' me, my hopes, my values, than the people I see every day at work who only see my 'public' face
A final word about my stories. It bugs me when I am half-way through reading someone's story, only to find that they never finished it. So I always try have have a story complete before I post it here. However, this means there is no point asking for more - if one chapter is all I've posted, then I'm afraid that's all my Muse has seen fit to give me!
One last note. If you want to put a story of mine in your C2 list I would appreciate being asked first. Many thanks.

Update September 2015
Since I first ventured into the realms of fanfiction over ten years ago, my real life has undergone a complete makeover. In 2011 I decided to walk away from my old life, giving up my job and selling my home to travel around the world and do some of the things on my 'bucket list.' In addition to travelling down the Grand Canyon on a mule, working in a koala sanctuary, getting dressed in a kimono and riding on an elephant, I also managed to meet some of the 'virtual' friends I had come to know through Thunderbirds fan fiction
Following my return I have turned the blog I wrote on my travels into a series of books and and am now proud to announce that these are available on Amazon. In 'Travels with a Penguin' you can follow my adventures as I journey across the USA then on to New Zealand, Australia, Japan and Sri Lanka - accompanied by a small stuffed penguin called Scott-of-the Antarctic.
The publication of these book is the realisation of yet another dream. Little did I know, when I first sat down to write about the Tracy boys all those years ago, that it would lead to my becoming a 'proper' author!
