Interview

In Her Words

I was born in 1952 in London, moved to Australia in 1965, got infected by The Samurai despite having already succumbed to Dr. Who in 1963, though it must be said the first fan fiction I wrote was probably the further adventures of the characters in The Pathfinders series which I scribbled instead of writing What I Did Last Night in the obligatory diary they made us keep in Hampstead Infants & Primary. Thereafter it was all downhill - Star Trek in the late 1960s, Dark Shadows, Blake's 7, Battlestar Galactica, Forever Knight, Babylon 5, Space Above and Beyond, Xena, Stargate SG-1, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and so on.

I became active in fandom in the early 1970s with Star Trek and briefly (until I saw the sequel) Star Wars. After having a number of my screeds published in overseas fanzines, I realised I had enough to start my own. This was Multiverse begun as a no-frills fanzine which featured not only the then obligatory Star Wars fan fiction but "mixed universe" (i.e containing characters/situations from more than one SF/fantasy TV/film 'world') tales largely set in my own universe. Multiverse moved on to embrace most of the above mentioned shows and others, finally finishing with issue #30 in 1999. I began Centero in 1982 as a Blake's 7 discussion zine which later expanded in 1985 to take in other series. It's still going strong. In 1986 I published briefly Dodecahedron a Dr. Who discussion zine.

I started attending cons in 1974 beginning with a SF natcon in Melbourne, going on to a couple of worldcons, many Star Trek cons (including the last of the original cons run in New York by Joan Winston et al.), a couple of Blake's 7, Dr. Who and Dark Shadows cons. I've given papers, been on panels or guested at a number.

In the last decade, my interests have taken me from Fandom to the Fancy, beginning with breeding and showing rabbits in 1998, then adding cavies (guinea pigs). [1]
