Author has written 8 stories for Doctor Who, and Pride and Prejudice.

Hello my lovelies

Thank you for visiting my profile page. I'm afraid it isn't very exciting.

I guess the done thing is to tell you a bit about myself. Well, I am not a writer. I am a scientist. In fact, I hated writing. I never had the patience for it. Then I caught the bug, so forgive me if I am incoherent and my vocabulary is repetitive.

I cannot write romance to save my life. I am romantic in ideals, but cannot handle sentimentality very well. Angst is pretty hard too. I have a tendency to deal with them by becoming very over the top and sarcastic, which doesn't generally fit very well with the tone I am attempting to achieve. Therefore, I avoid them.

My pet peeves are characters out of character and a lack of commas. And really bad science. I take the last with a pinch of salt though, because an intolerance for bad science and and love of science fiction is never going to end well. These are what I most try to avoid when I write, so when you review (hint hint), feedback on these points is most welcome. Of course, any feedback at all is welcome (barring the rude nonconstructive sort).

Pride and prejudice v3.14 will be completed one day. Frustratingly, I lost most of the completed story before I posted it, and after losing so much work I lost a bit of enthusiasm for it. But I am slowly building it back up again, so one day it will return to all its shining glory!!!
