Author has written 30 stories for StarTrek: Voyager.

A fan of Trek since the first run of the original series. I first started to write to make sense of the fact that the J/P friendship survived so well after the events of Thirty Days.
For me, Thirty Days is a pivotal episode for Tom Paris's growth as a character in the series. He risked everything that he had worked so hard for on Voyager in order to follow up on his belief in what was right. Whether you agree with his actions or not, is not the point. He acted out of principle with no thought or possibility of personal gain. In doing so, he (re?)discovered his sense of honor.

My set of season 5/6 stories begins with the events of Thirty Days and ends with Tom's reinstatement as lieutenant. The stories are stand-alone stories. However the following themes weave through the series as a whole.

- the state of the J/P friendship during these two years
- Tom's personal development after recovering his honor - beginning with an almost light hearted sense of release to an eventual more mature self-knowledge - all without losing the qualities that make his character fun to write.
- the state of the P/T relationship during this period
- an acknowledgement of the difficulties that developed in the J/C relationship, hopefully in a way that maintains the integrity of the characters and the underlying bond that is taken up again in the post series books.
-one of the stories, Admiral, Father, Dad, also led me to explore Tom's relationship with his father.

For readers who wish to read the 5/6 season series in order, this is a chronological list.
These are J/P friendship stories. Tom's romantic relationship is with B'Elanna. I noted stories where the P/T pairing is a strong element in the story.

I'd like to renew my thank you to those who review stories. I appreciate the time you take to let me know how you reacted, what you thought. It is a special delight to find a new review for a story that has been up for a while. So often there is a brief flurry of reviews soon after a story is posted, and then silence. It is so nice to know that the stories are still being read and enjoyed.

Violations of the Mind reviews
Early steps in Tom's recovery from the forced memories of the massacre on Tarakis. These missing scenes also prepare the way for later developments in Tom and B'Elanna's relationship. I prefer relationship to friendship as a secondary genre, but 'relationship' is not included on the list.

Heroes on Ordinary Days reviews
A two-part story in a loosely connected series that is set during the time when Tom was an ensign. It is an excuse to revisit the smile on Tom's face in the episode, 11:59, and suggests why Neelix gave the Captain a picture that she clearly didn't want.

I couldn't believe that Chakotay and Tuvok would give up before tracing that comm glitch back to Tom's console in the episode, Disease. Maybe they didn't. Set between the episodes, Disease and Warhead.
