A S Lawrence was a long-time Sports Night fan writer. Her stories are largely slash, however she did some gen and het. Dan/Casey was her main slash pairing. She died in January 2013.[1]

In the 1980s, I wrote fan fiction for Battlestar Galactica. Sometimes I wrote it as Anaïs; sometimes I wrote it as A S Lawrence, or A M Sinclair. Occasionally, I wrote it as Charlotte Sturley. All of this made sense on some level, or it did at the time. But everyone was me. And still is. I also co-ran The Thirteenth Tribe, the British Battlestar Galactica fan club, and took over The Richard Hatch Fan Fellowship, when its founder gave it up due to ill-health. Fandom may, or may not, be a waste of time, but without it, I would probably never have gone to America. I doubt America would have cared either way; but hey.
