Some Excerpts

Annie. It's my real name. Sometimes I get credited as AnnieB or Annie Booker. I've never hidden my fanfiction writing from anyone so I never felt the need to use a different pen name.
My twin sister, Lyn, used to bring tapes of the show whenever she came to visit me. It took a few episodes before I saw what she liked about it though. I think it was seeing bare-chested Jim in The Rig that finally tipped me over the edge.
Aside from Mannix fanfiction when I was around 10, the first story I wrote was a little over the top h/c fic called Sick Leave. Pressing the send key was probably the most nerve-wracking thing I'd ever done in my life. I write in Stargate, both SG1 and Atlantis, NCIS, and Diagnosis: Murder. I've written in Starsky & Hutch, The Professionals, and Emergency, though not for a while. And last year I wrote a SG1 crossover that brought in CSI: Las Vegas, House, and The Sentinel. TS has always been my first love, though I enjoy dipping my toes into my other fandoms.
Ever since I started writing Little Daniel stories (and Little Jack) in the SG1 fandom, I've wanted to write a downsized Blair story. I do have an idea for one, so maybe I'll find the time to do it soon. LKY did a brilliant job with her story "Raising The Shaman" and I wanted to make sure I could come up with a plot that was totally different from hers before writing mine. I've always wanted to write an AU where Sentinels and Guides are known but it's been done so wonderfully by so many talented writers that I'm hesitant to try. More time would definitely help and definitely more practice.
