Author has written 7 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Sherlock, Thor, and True Blood.

My usual pen name is Mad (short for Magdaline), but it was already taken on this site. Bummer. I live in Manhattan and am a scientist by trade. Like everyone else, I dream of writing (and publishing) original fiction someday. Perhaps when real life settles down a bit and I have more than five minutes at a time to myself. I've always considered myself a writer, though for the first 30 years of my life, a writer who doesn't write--a concept I thought I had originated until I read it in a John Irving novel. Fanfiction got me over my life-long case of writer's block, so I am certainly endebted to the genre. Not to mention that it's FUN FUN FUN!

Up until recently, I have written in a modified screenplay format because that's just how I imagine things--for me it seems organic to write a television show as a television show. I am attempting to break this habit with my new True Blood story. We'll see how it goes. The thing I like best about Joss Whedon is his way of mixing high drama with comedy (did I mention most of my stories are set in the Whedonverse?). So that's what I try to do as well. I aim to make people giggle and cry in the same chapter...and maybe get a bit hot and bothered if there's time.
