Author has written 9 stories for StarTrek: The Original Series.

I'm a journalist so write for a living, but never fiction… until now.

In fact, in my other life, I write for television news and current affairs which is why I have an addiction to shorter sentences, showing rather than telling, and a reluctance to use too many adjectives. I tend to see and hear what I write on a screen in my head. Have to rewind and rewrite every time I get it wrong.

Spice by eimeo reviews
It's a question of biology... Vulcan biology. Towards the end of the 5 year mission, Kirk realizes that his feelings for Spock are requited, but Spock has already decided they can never be together. Kirk/Spock pre-slash to slash, with plenty of angst. (A full, clean copy for download - minus author notes, but including translations - is linked from the author's profile.)

Common Cause by Jane D2 reviews
Life after Talos IV for the Enterprise command team. Warning: I write canon, but my preference is to choose a cast from existing available characters and put them into new story lines. If you are a purist, this might not be for you.

Drastic Measures by Djinn1 reviews
Set after ST:VI and The Enterprise B launch, Spock wants Chapel to accompany him on a Diplomatic/Emergency Ops joint mission that goes very wrong. This is hurt/comfort, although not terribly graphic, cuz the hurt isn't the point, but thought I should give fair warning. For those longing for something Kirk free, this should fit the bill.

Kirk/Spock. A few months after their bonding, Spock requests leave to attend a mid-winter ceremony on Vulcan. Kirk didn't even know there was a mid-winter ceremony on Vulcan, and he finds himself wondering why his bondmate has had a sudden attack of nostalgia. It could be a long vacation…

Clean Slate by Djinn1 reviews
After slavers who traffic in high-value labor take Chapel, she loses her identity but retains her skills. Kirk wants to get the rest of her back, & Spock is willing. But this is after V'ger and there are things unsaid that need to come out, on all sides. This is Kirk-Chapel & Spock-Chapel. Hard truths, compromised people behaving badly: this one's not light and bantery. No violence

Put Your Head On My Shoulder by Djinn1 reviews
This started out as fluff. Nice, innocent, let them have sex in a different era fluff. But I think my muse is incapable of doing pure fluff. At any rate, this is Kirk and Chapel, living it up. Enjoy-it was fun to write and I hope it's fun to read.

Life is Like a Malt Shop by Mallus reviews
Jim's a dork, Spock puts up with him, bonding happens, then Deus Crackadrama Machina descends upon them both. Starts out funny, devolves into supernatural unhappiness, and I wish I could be more specific but that would spoil you. Slash as of chapter 6.

Within and Without reviews
"She's pointing, finger shaking, mouth stretched in a soundless scream. Pointing at him? No, pointing at the man in red behind him. The words are hissed not spoken. "Starfleet scum. Redshirts." And she's screaming, screaming abuse until the hiss of the hypospray hushes her to silence." Something is very wrong on colony Deneb III. And something's wrong with Kirk too.

The Man Who Fell To Earth reviews
"Friendship and pain. He hasn't always thought of them as connected. He'd spent so long looking for the subtleties he'd missed the obvious; open is just another word for vulnerable." Post TWOK and Kirk has lost everything that matters to him. He seeks to escape from a guilt that haunts him but has to deal with an unwelcome visitor. This is about friendship and grief.

The Memory Within reviews
This is another bit of Kirk angst, this time set just after "The Enemy Within". What would it be like to face your dark side? No, think about it, what would it really be like? And how will recent events affect Spock and Kirk's developing friendship? My first attempt at writing Spock dialogue. Thanks to Rabble Rouser aka Harmony Bites for her input.

Pointless reviews
A short introspective piece from Kirk's POV inspired by my first watching of "The Empath" a few weeks ago. This episode wasn't shown in the UK until 1994 because the BBC were concerned about 'scenes of torture'. An angst fest for Kirk fans.

Kirk wakes up to an empty ship; 430 men and women appear to have vanished into thin air. It's exhilarating, liberating, baffling in equal measure. But it's not a no-win scenario. This is the T version of an earlier story published and reviewed in the M category. Set at the end of the five year mission. My first fanfic. Thank you to my beta reader Djinn1 for all her support.
