Author has written 14 stories for Final Fantasy VIII.

I've just checked the 'last updated' date for my profile and realised I haven't touched it in nearly 10 years! So, it's about time to refresh it, right?

Likes: Final Fantasy series, reading fantasy & SF fiction, writing

Dislikes: motor racing

OK, the lines above don't really tell you much about me, do they? So, what do you want to know - or more importantly, what am I willing to tell! Here goes. I'm married with two grown-up kids and a grandson. I live and work in Liverpool, England.

I've been writing fanfiction since 2001, mainly as a way of testing the waters, as it were. The best thing about is that you get feedback on what you write. If you review my little stories, you will not only earn my undying gratitude, but I also promise to read and review your work at the earliest opportunity. I value all criticism, bad as well as good - all I ask is that you try to be constructive.

In 2019, I self-published my first novel - 'The Curse of Mannerley Manor'. You can buy it here. It began as a Nanowrimo in 2014 - five years well spent.

I'm currently working on an on-going project called '70 x 700', which you can find here.

But this is fanfiction.net. Below you will find 14 fics, all for Final Fantasy 8. I'm pretty conservative as far as pairings go, but I do like exploring the characters that don't get as much attention as Squall and Rinoa.

Well, that's it for now - happy reading!
