Author has written 14 stories for MacGyver, CHIPs, and StarTrek: The Next Generation.

April 15, 2022...It was exactly five years ago today that I sat down at my computer and began to peck out the first words to my first ever fan fic, "Continuum" based on the original (1985) MacGyver series. Before I knew it, ideas and words were whirling around in my mind faster than I could type them!! I NEVER intended for anyone but me and a few close family members to ever read the story. However, in September of that year, after reading several other fan fics, I decided mine was worthy enough to put out on the internet. I steeled myself for criticism, but thankfully the response from readers was overwhelmingly positive and turned into the driving force to keep me telling Mac's story. After 40 chapters of "Continuum", I still wasn't ready to let the characters leave my life so the story continued in "The Journey Continues" which now is up to 60-some chapters. I debated stopping at 40 and continuing under a different title, but figured that my confuse my followers and I may lose some in the process.

My goal in all my MacGyver writing (whether it be the MAIN story of Continuum/The Journey Continues or "one shots", is to stay true to the characters' personalities and stick to canon as much as possible. Looking back, I realize I may have strayed at times, but that was when I thought no one would be reading it and it was purely a creative and cathartic exercise! Would I have done some things differently? Absolutely! But I will not go back and change them and ruin the authenticity of that rookie fan fic writer who didn't know any better! I will freely admit that I am LOUSY with MacGyverisms! Anything have to do with science or mechanics has always been beyond my comprehension! With research I manage to come up with some hopefully interesting -isms, but I write on the theory that there is more to MacGyver, the man, than physical MacGyverisms. The way he thinks about situations, treats others, deals (or not) with his own past and feelings are the things that endear him to me so this tends to be the focus in my stories.

I have also written a few stories for CHiPs...that came about as I was e-mailing a fan fic writer regarding her stories in that fandom and she asked me for a plot idea. I came up with one, but she decided to pass on it, so I wrote it myself. The rest is history!

My one shot at writing for Star Trek: Next Generation was once again inspired by a fellow fan fic writer who mentioned a beloved but rarely seen character. I saw the episode she was talking about and decided to put my own spin on things.

Unfortunately, these days, my writing days are few and far between. Oddly enough, I have lost a lot of confidence in my writing though I still have ideas for several chapters running through my brain almost daily. BUT...I WILL NOT GIVE UP!!! For those of you waiting for more Mac chapters...they will come eventually!!! And I will not leave you hanging should I decided to say good-bye to Mac. I promise him and you and fitting conclusion!!

Please know that even if I'm not actively posting, I check this site at least once a week for messages, reviews, etc. so PLEASE FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT TO ME!! I've made some wonderful and dear friends through my fan fic writing and would love to meet more!!! I appreciate everyone who has chosen to follow and/or provide feedback for my stories. THANK YOU!! It keeps me going!!

Most Sincerely,

Uniquelyjas (aka: Jody)
