Author has written 7 stories for StarTrek: The Next Generation.
My non fanfiction novel, "NanoMorphosis" by Marla L. Anderson is now available on Amazon. If you like stories with aliens, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and a little romance in the mix, check it out. Here's the link:
I'm also up on the Fictionpress website under the same name: Fictiongal and am working on a sequel to my sci-fi novel 'NanoMorphosis' published by Wolfheart Press. My website is www.mlandersonauthor.com. I hope you'll look me up.
I have been writing fiction for a long time and been fortunate to have few of my short stories published. My favorite genre is science fiction, but I also dabble in adventure, mystery, horror, romance and memoir. I tend to mix romance into my plots with lots of unresolved sexual tension. It adds fun to most any story line. Being a Star Trek fan from the original series on through, my first novel was one written in the Star Trek universe. I had been reading a number of their published novels and thought "Hey, I can do better"... such hubris. So, I penned a novel and had a lot of fun doing it. Then I read the Pocket Book guidelines and discovered I'd violated just about every one of their "we don't wants" such as time travel, superior beings, intra-crew conflict, etc. etc... oh well. So I ended up with a fanfiction novel locked in my drawer (computer, actually). Years later I come across this site. Hmmm... a place to publish my fanfiction?... why not? The title "Captain's Prerogative" was inspired by the gap in events between the movies 'Star Trek: Generations' and 'Star Trek: First Contact'. (After I posted the first TNG novel, I added two more, turning it into a trilogy that expanded into the time following the final TNG movie.) It was fun sharing these fanfiction trilogy for a few years, but I've since taken them down.
Now I've posted a series of short takes on Data's attempts to understand human emotion by exploring traditional holiday celebrations. They're humorous and touching in turns and have gotten positive feedback from fellow Data fans. (Are we a dying breed?)
Any comments are much appreciated. You know how we authors love feedback. Otherwise we're not sure if we really exist -- the writer's paradox. I thank those of you who take the time to read my writing and most especially if you take the time to tell me your thoughts about what I've written, and/or offer suggestions. I will make every effort to return the favor.
Lost in the imagination of the written word, I am
