Author has written 8 stories for StarTrek: Deep Space Nine, and StarTrek: The Next Generation.

Hi Readers! I hope you've been enjoying the stories so far.

About me: I like classical literature and sci-fi. I also like arts and crafts. I'm one of those people who can do a little bit of everything tolerably well, but I've had professional instruction in nothing. Reading/writing fanfiction has recently become one of my favorite pastimes, and while I don't pretend to be any sort of literary genius, it is a lot of fun to delve into the fictional world. : )

My favorite Star Trek people are the Romulans. I just think it's hilarious how they're so (mistakenly) condescending and always plotting to take over the galaxy in their own good time. So far, the majority of my stories relate to "In The Pale Moonlight" (DS9) in one way or another, but after I've finished High Society I'd like to venture down some other avenues.

Favorite classical works:

Jane Austen: Emma, Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey.

J. R. R. Tolkien: LOTR and The Silmarillion.

Kahlil Gibran: The Prophet (Christian poetry)

Charles Dickens: A Tale of Two Cities

Arthur Conan Doyle: all of the Sherlock Holmes stories

And many others...

I've posted a few amateur drawings related to the stories below on Deviant Art: http://thymetoread.deviantart.com/# Also, TribalGraces has some really good Star Trek art, so be sure to check those out, too!

My reason for reading fan fiction:

"Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can." - Lizzy Bennet, Pride and Prejudice


Story updates:

Pardek's Second Course: After all the fun LornaWinters and I had writing "Pardek Meets His Match", I have embarked upon another (unrelated) tale starring the portly politician, this time co-written by BewilderedFemale. Again, thanks for joining me on this, Bea! : D


Trivial Pursuits: After sitting on the back burner for nearly a year, LornaWinters and I have taken up this story again! For those of you who've been waiting on this story, thanks for your patience. : )


3/12: Hello readers! I just got an idea for a new story based on "Who Watches The Watchers?" (TNG), and it's going to be my first attempt at using first person narration. : )


4/10: Gosh, I can hardly believe it's been over 5 months since I updated High Society! In fact, I haven't done much writing at all lately. I guess it's partly because reader interest in the TNG/DS9 categories really seems to have diminished these last few months, and while I do write mainly for my own amusement, we all know that reader interest has a way of adding wind to your sails. Otherwise, it's much easier to just let the stories float around in my head than to hammer them out into text.

The second reason is that I've been running errands like a chicken with its head cut off!

And lastly, I've been doing a lot more reading this year, but hopefully this will have a good trickle-down effect and help me to improve my own writing. Anyways, I have been working on it, and with any luck I should have a chapter up before long.

A short character study on General Ronin, set during the movie before MK returns to her own world. "Ronin shook his head sadly.
