Author has written 28 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

Gay, white male who lives on Harsens Island, MI alone & mostly okay with it. Thanks to all of the fanfiction I've read to feed my Spander-needs! We need more Spander in the world (we also need more, much more, of Supernatural and Buffy/Angel being merged).

I won't bash any of the characters in my stories, but that doesn't mean they stay likable all of the time. [I'll say - See Giles & Willow]

You can always also email me at robgnow@yahoo.com; I always respond to all posts, reviews, emails, etc.

You can also visit my more personal hodgepodge site at livejournal:

Or, if you want to re-read any of the stories, but in a more cleaned up and edited fashion, I cross post to:

UPDATE:

(09/2013): So, where is spanderverse these days? I don't want to jinx it, but the Muse has been filling several pages with actual story content, so it appears that the long, long drought may be coming toward a conclusion. At least for Tara's part of the story that we ended on. There are several percolating ideas for Dawn's tiny subplot -- she's more involved later, which I'm trying to get my head to stop focusing on for the here-n-now. The sticking point will probably be Xan/Spike/Riley/Sunnydale's attacks, but tangentially to that mess, some things about Andrew have been playing in the back of my mind.

So, in other words, I'm sensing growth in ground I had thought might've died. I'm taking this as a tiny "yay!" and we'll try to nurse whatever is coming up into bloom.
