Author has written 12 stories for Harry Potter, and Star Trek: 2009.
Yeah, I seem to be back. RL seems to have reached equilibrium at its new normal and I’m trying to attract the muses again.
As some of you may be aware, my wife had been chronically ill for many years. This left increasingly less time for (and, frankly, diminishing interest in) writing as it became hard to concentrate on events in other worlds when my own ‘Hermione’ was sick and in pain. Of course, hardly a week went by when she didn’t try to convince me to resume my writing. I tried, but to no avail – and I have the cluttered hard drive to prove it.
Finally, shortly after the COVID-19 nonsense gripped our world, she went on to her Next Great Adventure. It wasn’t COVID-19 (they tested her posthumously for it to protect the rest of the family), but her own ongoing illness.
As mentioned, I have many bits and bobs of notes and half-completed crap waiting to be whipped into shape. I’m sending the final chapter of Personal Log to my beta this afternoon and will be cleaning up the more or less complete(ish) clutter to try and get the juices flowing properly before I attack the one everyone seems to want (you know which one it is…).
Again, I apologize for the prolonged absence and want to thank all readers for continuing to read and review all this time. Also, I need to thank my good friend and beta, Vern (aka Herman Tumbleweed), for all his support. As they say, “Insanity loves company.”
I'm just a tired old hippie with too many kids that got sucked into JKR's sandbox and stayed to play.
As the management has found it necessary to remove the Home Page link 'cause of a bunch of idiots ruining it for the rest of us, I'll just put it here: http:///group/HermansTumbledweeds/ .
I'm also collaborating with Herman Tumbleweed on another story called Oh No! Not Again! It can be found on this site at http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4838865/1/On_No_Not_Again. Don't forget to read the rest of his stories, too.
Reductor has translated Take That, Princess for posting on a popular Russian fanfic forum http:///index.php?section=3&id=64775. He has a few others on his profile https://www.fanfiction.net/u/5947490/ that are worth checking out, as well. Thanks, Reductor, for your hard work and for honoring me and my work this way.
Oh No! Not Again!: Herman's muse for this seems to be making a comeback and we've started working on it again. Oh, my poor telephone bill... * Muse abandoned us again.
Let Me Help (working title): Post final battle Harry/Padma story. Re-written (now almost twice as long) and undergoing final edits in preparation for going to beta. * Ending re-written again and nearly complete (again). Hope to have this completed next.
