Author has written 49 stories for CSI, Gargoyles, Hot Fuzz, Firefly, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, and Welcome to Night Vale.

What to say. I'm thirty-something and live in New Zealand. As we're often six months or more behind the USA when it comes to TV shows, this means that my fics can be overtaken by canon content that I haven't yet seen. Mainly a moot point though, as my CSI fics are old, my Gargoyles fics tend to be pretty general, and Firefly was tragically taken before its time. I tend to write sporadically on TV shows and movies that really spark my imagination, so if I haven't posted in a fandom in a while it's a pretty safe bet I've moved on. I'm currently waiting on Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries - the movie, and obsessing over Welcome to Night Vale.

10/2014: For personal reasons, I've recently chosen to delete a couple of fics. My apologies if they were particular favourites, but I felt it was time they came down.
