Author has written 19 stories for F Troop, It's About Time, Gilligan's Island, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Emergency, Dick Van Dyke Show, Ghost Busters (Real/Extreme), My Favorite Martian, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, CHIPs, and Hogan's Heroes.

Guess this is where they want us to talk about ourselves; something I find extremely difficult to do.

I enjoy much of fandom, though what I prefer is more likely to air on MeTV, Antenna TV, and the like. Those re-runs are like a warm, snuggly blanket to me.

Though I’m primarily a gen writer and reader, I will read plotty het and slash. While I'm not a prolific writer (most of my work is still on my hard drive), I've been slowly collecting my older fics that were written under other pseudonyms -- and until recently were not accessible because I forgot the email and passwords to those FF.net accounts -- and placing them under my current pseudonym, since duplicate fic is not permitted on FF.net. I also have a backup account of my fic on the Archive of Our Own (AO3).

Answers to some common questions:

Favourite Characters & Shipping: I don’t think anyone’s ship or favourite character is better than anyone else’s. And I just kind of roll my eyes when arguments like that erupt. I don’t like kale or brussel sprouts that doesn’t mean you’re the devil incarnate should they be your favourite veggies.

Favourite Fandoms: As I said above, most of my fandoms tend to air on MeTV, Antenna TV, Cozi TV, and the like. What can I say? I enjoy those silly, old-fashioned programmes. While I write for a variety of them, I don't really have a pet favourite: I'll write what calls to me. One thing I'm cautious about is reading within a fandom when I'm currently writing a fic for that particular fandom: I always worry that I might accidentally use someone else's idea without realising it.

Religion in Fic: While I’m not into any particular religion, I don’t necessarily mind spiritual or religious themes in a fic, provided the author is not proselytizing or using a fic to “call the wrath of god down upon the sin of the day”, as I've unfortunately seen done in several pieces of fiction.

Historical Fic: Anytime I write historical fic, I try to use verbiage specific to that particular era. Additionally, when necessary, I'll review my copy with the librarians at the Schomburg Center, who have been inordinately helpful.

Feedback: If you've read my fic and enjoyed it (and even if you didn't), I'd like to thank you up front for your time, and would welcome any feedback -- positive or negative -- you'd care to give. The only way to learn to be a better writer is by graciously accepting criticism.

Wank: I try very hard to avoid wank whenever or wherever it occurs; so, I'm more likely to just remove myself from a heated debate than continue on with it.

WIPs: I am trying very hard to complete my work(s) in progress (WIPs), but my health issues, at the moment, take precedence over my writing.
