Author has written 47 stories for Smallville, O.C., Law and Order: CI, and Being Human.
Hello, my name is Lisa and i hail from Northern England.
I've been writing for a very long time. My favourite subject at school was English (and history) and my particular favourite lesson was creative writing so i guess it all started from there. I've been writing fan fiction for about ten years now but it's only since about 2005 that i felt confident enough to share it with other people. I wrote Angel fanfic extremely badly and it never saw the light of day. The first shared fandom was Smallville, namely Clark Kent though i loved writing more about his bad side, namely Kal-El, on red kryptonite. I moved onto Law and Order: Criminal Intent and a big chunk of my fics here are from that fandom concentrating on the character of Detective Robert Goren. I now concentrate on writing Being Human fanfiction and only the UK version. I originally wrote about Mitchell and for now i've said a fond farewell to him to concentrate on Hal but you never know, i may return to him one day. I've just completed a real labour of love with a multi chapter Hal opus that i had a lot of fun in writing. Given that Being Human is no more, i can't say when, if ever i'll return to that fandom but again, never say never, it was a fantastic one to write in.
I don't really 'do' ship fics. Shipping causes nothing but argument and dissention in some fandoms and i can do without all of that. It's probably why most of my fics have an Own Character, someone to bounce the main character against.
I am drawn to fics that are true to the character, where i can hear that character speak those words. I love 'what if' fics, fics that think a little bit out of the box, i like angst, i do like a bit of humour (though find it hard to write it myself) and i love drama. I also like fics where the author has taken time with grammar (though mine does slip on occasion, a very bad habit of mine), spelling, layout and little things like speech marks. Believe me, they all matter. If i like a fic enough then i'll happily leave a review :)
I like to write with music in the background, in fact me and my red iPod are rarely apart when i am writing. Favourites include Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, The Black Keys, Royal Blood, Nothing But Thieves, Seether, The Prodigy, Korn, Muse, Florence, Evanescence, Matchbox Twenty, Train, to name but a few as well as the Being Human OST's.
Away from writing, i'm addicted to my tv and the Sky Plus box in my view, is the best thing ever to be invented. I watch a ton of television. Favourites include: Being Human (UK version), Sherlock, Luther, Smallville, Law and Order:Criminal Intent, NCIS, NCIS LA, Who Do You Think You Are, Inspector George Gently, Ripper Street, Hawaii Five-O, Doctor Who, Castle, Supernatural, Call the Midwife, Whitechapel, Elementary, White Collar, Grey's Anatomy, Chicago Fire, Sleepy Hollow, The Originals, Almost Human, Arrow, The Flash, Scorpion, The West Wing and yes, i do like Elementary and i am a Sherlock fan and i don't really care who knows, it is perfectly acceptable to like both and i do! :) I'm also watching the US version of Being Human because i'm terminally curious like that and there's something about it that keeps me coming back. It doesn't hold me captive like the original does and always will do but i will admit to there being something about it that keeps bringing me back to it.
I also like to read, my favourite authors being Cynthia Harrod-Eagles (Morland Dynasty), Elizabeth Chadwick, Nora Roberts, J.D.Robb, Karen Rose, Mary Burton,Kate Morton, Kate Rhodes, Elly Griffiths, Ben Aaronovitch and children's author Sam Gayton. I enjoy crime novels, historical novels and the occasional travelogue.
I find writing to be a catharsis, i am a very proud parent of a young adult on the autistic spectrum and it has been tough at times so writing is my way of decompressing. I thank the day my husband of a long time bought me my first laptop (i'm now onto my third) thus allowing me to indulge in my passion. I find the time to power up, plug in my iPod and i'm off, in a world of my own.
I'm also a big history fan, namely British history and i like to do word searches. My family thinks that i'm a geek but i'm just happy.
Incidentally, I don't allow my fics to be hosted or posted elsewhere unless with express permission.
