Author has written 24 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Stargate: SG-1, Studio 60, Stargate: Atlantis, Discworld, and Sherlock.

"I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all."

Richard Wright, American Hunger, 1977

Praise be to the Lord in Heaven--

for out of His powerful Imagination He created me,

and now by His loving, patient grace He sustains me

past the end of time.
