11/28/2023 update - Chapter 44 (Wednesday, September 21, 1983) was just posted to "Beth." Traffic stats are still down...please leave a review if you are reading and enjoying the story. Thanks so much!
Perhaps the most important update to the profile: I am back at work on "Beth" and hope to get new chapters posted as time allows. I certainly never anticipated it remaining unfinished for so long, but I do intend on completing it. A new chapter (Sunday, April 25, 1982) was posted in 2022 and new chapters will be uploaded as I finish them. (It will not be tying in to the new Quantum Leap show. I began writing it around 1995 and am sticking to my original timeline and choices.) I appreciate everyone's patience. I am a homeschooling mom, so I write when I can.
I have only ventured into fanfiction in two areas (Quantum Leap and Highlander: the Series--well, three if you count the crossover Leap into Star Trek: The Next Generation detailed in "All That Glitters" ). I do believe that fanfic is a great vehicle for finding your voice and gaining confidence as a writer. The stories I have posted here were generally written and/or started in the late 90s. I would love to hear your feedback. Please leave a comment. :)
Incidentally, if you like these stories, in the spring of 2005, I had a 4-part 'episode' called "Chiefest of Sinners" air at "The Starbright Project" at Al's Place Quantum Leap fansite. It is currently archived there and available to read. I also received the award for "Best New Author of 2005" from the 2005 Quantum Leap Fandom Awards as a result of this story (my first foray into any of the "virtual" QL series).
You can also find a novel length story, Stardust, that was hosted at the Quantum Leap Virtual Seasons at Al's Place in the summer of 2005 as a summer special. You can find it under the Alternate Universe section of The Virtual Seasons' site, clicking on "Prequels" will bring you to all ten chapters of Stardust. Incidentally, Stardust won Best Overall Story of 2005 in the Quantum Leap Fandom Awards.
In spring 2006, my first Virtual Seasons solo outing episode, "Sanctuary," aired in two parts as part of an alternate history arc and have been archived. In the fall/winter of 2005, a 4-part 'episode' entitled "Holding On...Letting Go" (co-written with C. Eleiece Krawiec) was aired at Quantum Leap: The Virtual Seasons and have all been archived at the Virtual Seasons at Al's Place Quantum Leap fansite.
"For the Sake of the Call" (also co-written with C. Eleiece Krawiec and the season finale for the Twelfth Season of the Virtual Seasons) can be read at The Virtual Seasons. I hope you check it out!
--My writing went on hiatus for an extended period of time due to real life, but I'm happy to say that I'm back at it again!--
