Author has written 41 stories for House, M.D., Something's Gotta Give, and Downton Abbey.

- The X-Files was my gateway into fanfiction more than 15 years ago. I began my own writing with Scully/Skinner stories which I loved at the time, but which were just not an accurate portrayal of my strengths as a writer. House, MD was where I cut my teeth, well after the show had ended its run.

- A niche corner writer specializing in obscure ships.

- I came to Downton Abbey through the back door - by way of fanfic - before I ever watched a single episode! I fell head-over-heels for Chelsie (Charles Carson x Elsie Hughes) but felt I couldn't write them with nearly the finesse of so many others. I began my journey into writing DA fic with Richobel (Dr. Richard Clarkson and Isobel Crawley, the sister ship to Chelsie until Julian Fellowes ran her aground).
