Author has written 8 stories for Pride and Prejudice, Through the Looking Glass, Greek Mythology, Star Surgeon, Alan Edward Nourse, Misc. Comics, and Persuasion.

A long-time reader of fanfiction, I decided to actively take part in it. My readings and writings are cross-genre, from ancient mythology to space exploration, and most everything in between. I am a stickler for quality fiction in regards to published fanworks, requesting that people take the time and courtesy to attempt good, solid portrayals. We are after all playing with other people's creations, and it is only right to treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve. That being said, we all have room for improvement, and I believe all authors should be treated with decency and decorum.

Now that I've finished sounding like a decided snobbish know-it-all, this overly long intro should cease and real writing begin.

To see more of my writing (including original pieces), check out my blog. I also have fan fiction published at Archive of Our Own.


Jan 1, 2015: It's a new year, and I've got a new fan fiction series for a new fandom: "That's What Tigers Do Best." New chapters posted Thursdays on my blog; updated here on Saturdays.

Jan 3, 2015: It's taking extra time to add "Star Surgeon" as a Books subcategory. For now you can read the first part of the series on my blog and Archive of Our Own profile. Subscribe to get the first part here once it becomes available.

Jan 7, 2015: "Star Surgeon" is finally up in the Books category, and the first part of "That's What Tigers Do Best" is now live here on FF.net. Look for Part 2 tomorrow on my blog, or check by here on Saturday.

Jan 16, 2015: "Sparks" is a new collection of drabbles about the public domain superheroes Gary Preston and Linda Dale, aka the Flame and Flame Girl. Look for new posts every Saturday, both here and at my blog. Read my earlier short story "After the Last Hurrah" for an intro to the characters.


Nobility & Discernment Alert:

Jan 17, 2009: To all my faithful readers, I apologize for the long time it is taking for more of this story to come forth. I have just started a new job and have some personal matters to attend to, which are preventing me from spending as much time on this project as I had formerly. My intentions remain to finish; it just may be some time before I am able to do so. Thanks for your understanding and support.

Nov 28, 2011: The amount of time that has passed since my last update to this fiction shows that while I may have had plans to continue this story, it hasn't been put on any kind of priority list. I do still have ideas for it, but for now I'm going to calls this one "complete" until I find the time and inspiration to continue it. Meanwhile, I have several other scriblings to post and ideas to explore. I am so very thankful to all the readers who have read and reviewed. While I hope to get back to this story; however, at this time and with new things going in the world of real life I make no guarantees on when it will happen.

A Twaddle of a Thing reviews
Mr. Headrick, an upstanding raff of the Wabe, is forced to entertain a difficult visitor. This story is inspired by the poem "Jabberwocky" and as such is very nonsensical from the plot to the vocabulary.

The revelation of Mr. Collins's philosophy on proposals, during a celebration of our two heroes' engagements. Not to be confused with serious plotting. Rated for mention of wine and its possible effects. One shot.
