Author has written 15 stories for Stargate: SG-1, Equalizer, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, and Wild Wild West.
I admit to being a dabbler in fanfic. I dip my hand in when I'm avoiding or delaying finishing original novels in various stages of completion (a science fiction trilogy that is now on book 4, a mystery and a just plain weird story).
Whether reading or writing, I prefer character and relationship driven stories to plot driven. What motivates me to write a particular piece of fanfic is a chance to flesh out characters from old favorite shows. Why is he or she like that? What becomes of him or her? That said, I admire writers who turn out tightly written, script like plot driven stories.
I neither read nor write very short stories. That said, I will never post a piece of work that I have not already completed writing even if I take a little time to post all the chapters.
Some day, if I find extra time or motivation, I may go back and break my first works, a Stargate SG-1 trilogy, into chapters to make them more reader friendly. I have my doubts, however. (Update: I DID IT! Not sure why it mattered so much now, however.)
Like all authors, I love feedback. Like most readers, I rarely give it. I'm trying to get better about that. I appreciate those who already are better about it! I don't melt at constructive criticism or even fundamental disagreements about character perceptions. Those can sometimes lead to great discussions or collaborations.
