“The spotted hawk swoops by and accuses me, he complains of my gab and my loitering.

I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable,

I sound my barbaric YAWP over the roofs of the world.”

~Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

I have this thing for characters. I can’t explain it. They get into my head and run around until I put them on paper. It’s not always pretty, but it’s usually entertaining. And they’re usually not mine—that’s why they end up here. So look around, review, and enjoy!

My current addictions: the new Dr. Who--first story up now.

My long-term, committed addictions: Remington Steele, Moonlighting

My all time favorites: Indiana Jones, James Bond

My one night stands: old school Star Wars (who can resist Harrison Ford?), MASH, House

I am also a recovering Harry Potter fan.

I am horrendous at meeting deadlines, even the ones I set myself, so my postings tend to be sporadic and grouped.
