Author has written 8 stories for Short Circuit, Phantom of the Opera, and Knight Rider.

Hey, there! Thanks for stopping by.

I am someone who tends to think a lot about fictional things. Since as far back as I can remember, I have been looking for ways to spend more time with my favorite characters. Fanfiction is the most fulfilling, awesome outlet I have found so far.

I spend most of my time on this site reading and writing about The Phantom of the Opera. I appreciate the story in all its forms and was lucky enough to see the amazing Las Vegas production on stage just a few months before it closed in 2012. Otherwise, I jump around quite a bit, but I've only felt the urge to write about Short Circuit and--most recently--Knight Rider. It's the artificial intelligence angle that grabs me, I think. Also, both universes have a great, lighthearted energy that contrasts very nicely with the darker aspects that draw me to Phantom.

In general, I love horror and science fiction. And I am committed to finishing whatever I start. Even if it isn't always in the timeliest of fashions.
