Author has written 8 stories for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Quantum Leap.

Hello -- I'm a dyed-in-the-wool text junkie who will read anything in print that will hold still long enough for my eyes to focus. Unfortunately, this means I read a lot of dreck. Fortunately (or perhaps not, you be the judge...), reading dreck and watching TV shows that leave too much unresolved (or flat out tick me off) prompts me to write fan fiction.

Fan Fiction I read now or have read in the past: X-Files, Quantum Leap, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Stargate-SG1, Inspector Morse, Lewis

Fan Fiction I have written: Quantum Leap, Manchild, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Fan Fiction I hope to write in the future:

I still have issues with Buffy that I will someday need to purge -- primarily in Season 2 and 3, believe it or not. I’m ambiguous about Season 4 and 5; I have some unfinished fics set in this time period that may someday see the sun but I’m less certain about what I have to say during ‘the college years’. By the time they got to Season 6, apart from some few and far between EXCELLENT moments, I just threw up my hands and shook my head. I have nothing but admiration for fan fic writers who wade into this morass and attempt to set things right. More power to you lads and lasses, you are better (wo)men than I.

Lewis and maybe Inspector Morse. There just isn't enough of this out there to satisfy me, there won't ever be new Inspector Morse episodes and four episodes of Lewis per year simply won't do!!!

Favorite Writers

Prose: Robert A. Heinlein, John Steinbeck and Joseph Conrad.

Poetry: Alfred Lord Tennyson, AE Houseman and Rudyard Kipling. I like to recite their poems out loud while I’m doing chores. Try it, it makes your pets NUTS!

Short stories: James Thurber (this guy was funny enough for any SIX people) and Ray Bradbury.

Plays: Eugene O’Neill

Nonsense: Dr. Seuss and Oscar Wilde

Favorite Quote:

I never quite know when I'm not writing. Sometimes my wife comes up to me at a party and says, "Damnit, Thurber, stop writing." She usually catches me in the middle of a paragraph. Or my daughter will look up from the dinner table and ask, "Is he sick?" "No," my wife says, "he's writing something." ~ James Thurber

If I were stranded on a desert island and could have only one [ blank ] it would be:

Movie: The Princess Bride

Book: Thurber’s Carnival

Food: A bacon cheeseburger

CD: Exsultate, Jubilate (Max Emanuel Cencic, soloist; Wiener Sängerknaben; Vienna State Opera Chamber Orchestra – Uwe Christian Harrer, conductor) Track 8 on this CD, Pueri Concinite as sung by Cencic can put me in a state of altered consciousness. Seriously, I think I could endure oral surgery without anesthesia with this music in my ears.

I'm a WHAT? reviews
What possible threat could a two foot tall demon with four itty-bitty teeth pose to our heroic Slayer? Perhaps we should be more concerned about Giles' blood pressure.
