Author has written 8 stories for StarTrek: Enterprise, and StarTrek: Deep Space Nine.
I'm a wife, mother, editor, love astronomy, play ice hockey. I archive Trip and T'Pol fic at Triaxian Silk.
About a week after I viewed the Enterprise finale, I sat down and wrote my first Trip-centric fanfic. And 4 years, 6 stories, 100,000 words later, I guess I'm done. LOL . . .
I loved the Rosanne show. It was funny and realistic and it tackled some uncomfortable, yet important, topics. Along with the various Star Trek series, that show is my model. I am concerned (OK, obsessed) with Trip, T'Pol, and their teenage son Lorian, and how they negotiate the impossible situations I throw them into. ;) I was inspired by Lorian's comment in a deleted scene of E-squared that his parents had a "loving, if somewhat contentious" relationship. That's what I'm going for: I want to portray a realistic family, with conflicts but strong connections.
My space soap opera explores several themes: finding hope after a loss; the value of marriage; the "joy" of parenting a teenager; sexual temptation and responsibility; and identity issues, including sexual identity (or some Star Trek analogue thereof). But for the characters, the personal issues come second to the mission: saving their planet(s) from the Xindi threat.
I've been a Trekkie since The Next Generation. I aspire to be funny, hopeful, and respectful of the canon. I LOVE the writers who gave us these compelling characters.
My E-squared series is done! It has a wild plot.
