I have been writing in VC fandom since 1998 and I would beg your pardon on the fumbling earlier stories; I hope with time I have managed to become a better writer!


I live in the middle of a cornfield with my partner Debra, our dog Silvio, five cats and the neighbor's three horses who live in our barn and field. It's great to have this lovely  site where we can all have our stories accessible to those who are interested in reading them :)
