Writing style

Sageness says of shrift's due South writing:

"Shrift is such a great writer, I want to link to everything! What I especially like are: vivid details, bright and natural-sounding conversations, perfect character voices, and action plots that balance beautifully with the relationship plots so that neither overwhelms the other. She also makes excellent use of Chicago as a setting. Most of all, though, I love how Shrift writes dialogue. The banter is brilliant and often funny, and I'm charmed by the boys all over again."

Notable Works

due South

  • Wound Up (Fraser/Kowalski, PG-13). Hilarious and wonderful first-kiss makeouts.
  • Dropping a Conversational Bomb (Fraser – Kowalski gen, PG). This was written for LGBT fest & is one of those stories with stop-start, increasingly intimate conversations reminiscent of canon.
  • Refraction (Fraser/Kowalski, PG-13). Light and hot and fun, the supporting characters are awesome, and the Fraser narrative voice is fantastic!
  • Excitable
