Author has written 5 stories for Bridget Jones' Diary.

"I suppose I write for the same reason I read; to live a double life; to go places I haven't been; to examine life on Earth; to come to know people in ways,
and in depths, that are otherwise impossible; to be surprised. Whatever their other reasons, I think all writers write as part of this sort of continuum:
to give back something of what they themselves have received."- Margaret Atwood

The above pretty much sums up my writing philosophy. I cannot remember a time when I did not identify myself as a writer in some way. I dabble in both fiction
and poetry, though I lean more toward the former. My current projects fall under the genre of fanfiction. As much as I love creating original fiction,
there's something especially rewarding about entering and participating, as a writer, in a story you've read--of
interacting with characters you've come to know and love as a part of the world you inhabit--and to in turn inhabit their world. Currently I am obsessed
(or just extremely focused, call it what you will) with the BBC's incarnation of Sherlock Holmes: the television miniseries "Sherlock," starring Benedict
Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. I also have a long and complex relationship with the characters of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones novels and their respective
film adaptations. As a lifelong card-carrying Colin Firth fan, I have an especially soft spot for Mark Darcy. I'm also intrigued by the possibility of
a Peter Guillam/Bill Haydon pairing in the world of John LeCarre's novel /Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy/, recently made into a film adaptation starring
the before mentioned Mr. Cumberbatch and Mr. Firth.

In any case, I thank you for reading, and hope you will enjoy what you find here.

Mark hadn't wanted to attend the Amnesty International Christmas charity gala, especially now that Bridget seems quite taken with one of the more distinguished guests. (Summary is rubbish, but I didn't want to spoil the surprise-you'll see!)
