Author has written 51 stories for Lord of the Rings, Quantum Leap, StarTrek: Other, Beauty and the Beast, StarTrek: The Original Series, StarTrek: Voyager, StarTrek: Enterprise, Phantom of the Opera, X-Files, Star Wars, Firefly, and Doctor Who.
I've been writing for thirty years: fiction, non-fiction, fan-fiction, and poetry--and have been published (see below). My current obsession is Doctor Who, followed by The Phantom of the Opera. I also enjoy writing for Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Beauty and the Beast, The X-Files, Star Wars, Quantum Leap, and Firefly. If I can think of a good enough story idea, I might add Stargate SG-1 to that list.
A Note to Readers
While many authors will post chapters as they write them, I will never begin posting a multi-chapter story unless I've already written the entire thing. It can take me weeks, months, sometimes even years to finish a story, and I feel that it isn't fair to readers to make them wait so long. Therefore any story will be finished before the first chapter goes up, and updates will be regular, every day or two.
Three of my stories have been published in an anthology titled Phantom Variations: Tales From the World of the Opera Ghost, edited by H.D. Kingsbury. The book is available in hardcover or paperback, and can be ordered from . It's also available at . My stories ("Because of Her," "Masquerade," and "Darkness") can be found under the pen-name Orianna Duomille. Since the stories were revised for publication, the original versions have been removed from and replaced by excerpts for each story.
It's been six years since I've added anything new. Basically, I've decided to go pro. I chose writing to be what I do in life and so I put aside fan-fiction in order to focus on my professional writing. I'm pleased to say that I have been successful! I regularly contribute full-length articles to an online trade journal (i.e.: a specialty magazine) that pays nicely. I've had a few pieces published in an international mental health newsletter, too.
Currently, I'm working on four novels: a retelling/sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, fully based on Leroux's original novel; a sci-fi romance in the vein of Torchwood or Men in Black; a medieval fantasy with some sci-fi elements; and a sci-fi romance with political/spy elements. The latter is proving problematic, since I know nothing of politics and governments . . . but I'm sure I'll get it sorted someday. I'm also working on a couple of non-fiction books, which is challenging, but enjoyable.
