Author has written 9 stories for Life on Mars, MI-5/Spooks, Ashes to Ashes, Doctor Who, Waking the Dead, and Harry Potter.

I write for a variety of fandoms, whenever the mood takes me. I also have a strong policy on reviewing everything I read. It's important for writers to know what people think of their work, getting feedback helps spur us on!

Some pairings I ship/read:

Ros/Adam - Spooks

Ros/Lucas - Spooks

Doctor/Master - Doctor Who

Severus Snape/Minerva McGonagall - Harry Potter

Alex/Gene - Ashes To Ashes

Eve/Stella - Waking The Dead (Though, no-one really writes for them)

Disclaimer: I do not own, or claim to own the majority of characters in these works. (Just thought I'd add a disclaimer here, as I forgot to put one on 'A Visitation'.)
