Author has written 17 stories for Doctor Who, Janet Evanovich, 24, Buffy X-overs, Torchwood, Bones, Mentalist, and NCIS.

I read too fast and run out of books too easily. And there are only so many good shows on TV. So I write. Mostly to amuse myself during re-runs/ hiatus and when I run out of new books to read.

Must watch TV: Doctor Who, NCIS, Stargate (both), Burn Notice, Psych, Dexter, Heroes, Friday Night Lights, 24, Criminal Minds, Blood Ties.

Still entertaining: CSI (any), Jericho, brit coms, Torchwood, Painkiller Jane, Futurama (it's comin' back, people!), BSG, Numb3rs.

Still deciding: Wire in the Blood, The Unit, The Closer, and that one I can't remember the name of to save my life...;p

Cancelled: Firefly, Farscape, To The Manor Born, The Pretender, Buffy, Eyes, 7 Days, Seaquest DSV, Babylon 5...I'm sure there's some I've missed.

Fave Authors: Mercedes Lackey, Connie Willis, Lois McMaster Bujold, Kelley Armstrong, Jim Butcher, Dorothy L. Sayers, John G. Henry, Terry Pratchett, Spider Robinson, Tanya Huff, Janet Evanovich, Barb & J.C. Hendee, John Ringo...

Movies: This list is far too long. I like almost almost every movie, ever. And I have a soft spot for cheesy action movies. Don't know why.

WIPs: Eternal Father (NCIS/24), Holiday (DW/TW), Scooby Through the Stargate (guess), it's over at TtH til it's done because I do not need to keep track of two copies at once, and Rising (Buffy/SGA), also at TtH until done but it's stalled so don't hold your breath.

Draft chapters will probably be posted on my shiny, new LJ for now (my homepage). That's part of the reason I signed up to LJ, might as well use it.

Later days.
