Hello! I live in Connecticut and am married with wonderful twins. We also have three dogs. All my life, I have loved to write, and I've loved TV. So this site brings those two passions together. I've always been a big Star Trek fan, and even wrote a script for a movie following Star Trek VI. I called it Star Trek VII: The Enterprise of Sulu. It's about Sulu becoming the captain of the Enterprise-B. I even registered it with the Copyright Office in Washington D.C. I sent it to George Takei, but never heard from him. I know they don't take unsolicited scripts, but it would have been cool to know if he read it or not. My favorite series is Enterprise, which a majority of my fan fiction is based on. The original series is a very close second.
The largest project I created was a journal as writen by Ryan Atwood from The O.C. The feedback was quite positive. I started writing it 15 months after the show ended and in real time. I wanted to be true to the show, which included the future montage at the end of the last episode, but also show a side of Ryan we never saw...what's going on in his head. I was quite pleased with how it turned out and may revisit it again someday.
I also wrote a story relating to Seven Days called The Story that Needs to be Told. The basis for Seven Days was a person traveled seven days back in time to change something that went wrong. The show was cancelled months before the September 11 attacks, and always I wondered how the show would have handled the real-life crisis that would have been too large to ignore. The Story that Needs to be Told was my solution. I sent the story to Justina Vail, who played Olga on the show. She thought it was excellent and said perhaps the show would have been on the air longer if I was on the writing staff.
