Author has written 55 stories for Person of Interest.
I've had many fabulous positions in a career spanning several decades, but never have I been more excited than I am to be able to publish these little fan fictions now.
I have watched and loved television and movies for years, but never tried to write fanfiction, unless you count that little story I wrote inspired by Walter Farley's The Black Stallion back in second grade! My last great passion was "House, M.D." but I never tried to create my own fics for that.
My family -- husband and adult twin boys -- keeps me grounded and happy. I couldn't do anything at all without them.
I am tremendously inspired by the talent, creativity, and inventiveness of the Person of Interest writers and cast. I love thinking about and analyzing that amazing show and I find a great way to get at the issues and themes raised in it is to explore them through fiction.
I adore the potential -- emotional, dramatic, romantic, and physical -- in the still evolving canon relationship between Reese and Carter. These two emotionally stunted, needy yet seeking characters are fascinating to me. But I am also quite drawn to the other two major figures of the POI universe, Finch and Fusco, both of whom have absolutely fantastic voices and points of view.
I also like the secondary characters from canon and I am ocassionally inspired to create original characters in order to explore questions about the main figures.
My goal always is to stick as closely as possible to canon. What is on screen and in the scripts is enough for me. I like to give it my own twist on the POI reality, of course. But I'm not at all into changing the essential natures, orientations, or personalities of these intriguing characters. I do enjoy reading some of those alternate universe stories from time to time and I admire those authors who can come up with that for these characters.
But that is just not me. I find the canon POI universe as complex, stimulating, and fun as I could ever hope it to be just as it is.
Most crucially, I am inspired by the great comments and reviews from readers. They drive me forward, encourage my imagination, and are the only reward I seek.
Keep writing those reviews and I promise I will keep writing POI fics!
