Author has written 17 stories for Star Wars, Lois and Clark, and One Tree Hill.

About Me: I have been writing fanfic since I first got a computer in 1996 during my junior year of high school. Through the years, I have written stories in several fandoms -- specifically: Lois & Clark: the New Adventures of Superman; Friends; ER; Anne of Green Gables; Star Wars; and One Tree Hill. Although my writing is far from perfect, I have grown quite a bit as a writer since I started. I am a bit embarrassed of many of my early stories, so many are no longer posted anywhere online.

I believe that constructive criticism is the only way to improve writing. That is why I welcome any and all constructive comments. Over the years, I have had several people who took the time to really critique my writing. And I think my writing is infinitely better because of their efforts (and I am not saying my stories are good -- they were at a very low starting point).

However, I realize that many authors do not feel the same way. That is why I rarely -- if ever -- comment on stories that I am reading. Also, I love to beta read, too, but I just don't have the time.

To that end, I have a VERY busy job as a patent lawyer, so I don't have the kind of time I really need to frequently update my stories. However, I do intend to finish the stories I am posting. Just . . . not in a timely fashion.

Public Service Announcement - Apostrophes I am positively APPALLED at the amount of apostrophe errors that are made when writing.

General Rules (with VERY limited exceptions):

An apostrophe can be used for a contraction (e.g., The girl's going to the party. This means the girl is going to the party). An apostrophe can also be used for a possessive (e.g., The dog's collar is blue. This means the collar belonging to the dog is blue.)

An apostrophe IS NOT used to make a word plural. (e.g. Two birds flew through the afternoon sky.)

I am not sure why this concept seems to be so hard. Didn't we all get it pounded into our heads in elementary school?

Public Service Announcement - Your/You're

This is not hard; again, isn't this something we all learned in elementary school?

YOU'RE is a contraction for YOU ARE. It can NEVER be used to mean belonging to you. NEVER. It can only be used when you mean "you are."

YOUR means "belonging to you." It can NEVER be used to mean you are. NEVER. It can only be used when you mean "belonging to you."

Correct usage: You're going to get your dog. This means, "You are going to get the dog that belongs to you."

Incorrect usage: Your going to get you're dog. This means, "Belonging to you going to get you are dog."
