Some Excerpts

I use my own name. I think it makes me look at what I've written more critically!
I'd written some Professionals fanfic, but I don't write slash and at the time there weren't so many gen writers/readers in that fandom, whereas there's always been great gen writing in The Sentinel. I joined the sentinelangst group, which encouraged me to get writing.
I appreciate good writing and authors who catch the exact voice for the character. I like people who write a 'good' Jim! I enjoy far too many authors to list them Cascade library list.
I like canon, but there are all sorts of pitfalls when you're from another country, however much research you do, so if I haven't as much time I write A/U. I like humour, I love hurt/comfort and the only sort of story I wouldn't consider writing is one where a saintly Blair sees mean old Jim repent his ways. You have written a number of classic 'crossover' stories. Why does this genre appeal to you? Do you have ... Crossovers appeals to me because so many stories have been written it's easier to devise a new plot by writing a crossover. Also I like to explore the ways characters from different shows might interact. My personal favourite in this has to be Jim with Chris Larabee. Demolition Men is probably the story I had most fun writing.
People are usually extremely generous in this fandom -- there are a lot more rude Professionals readers!
