Author has written 28 stories for Ninja Turtles, Transformers/Beast Wars, Mass Effect, Undertale, and Dragon Age.

What to say? I've tried this about seven times now, so here's me:

I've been writing with an aim to getting published since 1997.

I also teach science.

I've been a TMNT geek since the original comic series.

I've got a tiny blog at fantasiawandering.tumblr.com which I use for fic and TMNT related geekery, and if you want to see illustrations that people have done for any of these, check out the stories at a03.

The new series is the first thing that has ever made me write fanfiction. I loved the 2003 series for what it was, but the 2012 series is the one that leaves those lovely spaces between major events that I really want to fill in.

So there you go. :o)

Just a note -- life is a little crazy right now and I'm struggling a bit with ADD, so though I haven't stopped writing fic, it may come fewer and farther between for a while, and if you write me a note and I don't respond, it's probably that either work or the ADD has made it slip my mind, and I don't mind a gentle nudge if you're waiting for an answer.
