Author has written 8 stories for CSI, Gilmore Girls, X-overs, and Harry Potter.
I never thought I’d be inclined to write fanfiction; I thought writing original stories was the only way to go. However I have discovered that fanfiction gives me the chance to develop my powers of observation and of word-play much more than original fiction has done in the past. Now I write both.

While the creative outlet I do more seriously is composing music, I have a passion for words that cannot be suppressed. Combine that with a fascination with psychology and human behaviour and you get a budding writer whose only goal is to write realistic human interaction using brilliant prose. My greatest gift is the English language and I try to do it justice with my writing.

The characters I have begun with, seeing as they are the ones I know best, are those from Gilmore Girls. This is because Rory, Lorelai, and Jess (predominantly) are comical but rely on their character and emotions to make a plot. That’s a difficult combination to pull off and I am enjoying dabbling in it.

My aim is to write the most realistic stories possible. That can be with regard to plot, characterisation, dialogue, thought-processes, anything. My first story, Lightning Crashes, diverged into my attempt to give a tone of intimacy and desire so it is perhaps not as real as it could be.

All of this said, I enjoy writing parodies too, mostly of terrible Harry Potter stories I've read. If I say it's intentionally bad, it is.

Lastly: I am one of the few people around who encourages flames and criticism. Obviously I don’t want to know if you hate Jess because there’s really not a lot I can do with the characters given to me, but comments on my style, characterisation, word-choice, genre-choice, etc, would be so much appreciated. It’s the only way I can improve since while I’m writing the stories, I can’t see what’s wrong with them. Tell me what I did wrong and I will try to fix it.

Don't rehearse, this is the last verse
In the hearse, going through your purse
And if they would ever laugh, not here
They would ever laugh
Blame it on my style, once again
Don't take me for a ride
In the rain

Go or Go Ahead reviews
Intentionally bad (but articulate!) sidekick and DracoHarry story. It's very mild and intended to make a good fanfic writerreader laugh. Do take it as such.

An Afternoon's Debauchery reviews
Simple, one-shot piece of fluff when Jess comes to a Gilmore movie night. Movie in question is Fight Club because, well those who have seen it know why.

Lightning Crashes reviews
Literati, eventually. :D This is a more realistic than canon (and round-about) version of how Rory's "Jess or Dean?" situation turned out. Angsty in parts.

Two Flies Shy of a Shire reviews
Two deaths in the Fellowships lead the CSI team into a tangled web of drama, intrigue, soulful blue eyes, angst, and ultimately, slash. Technically a LotRCSI crossover.
