Born in the UK, and came to California when I was 7-ish. Lived there for a few decades. Now I'm in Twilight Country... :D :P (Washington).

I'm an artist/musician/writer sort of person, and my current focus is writing. I've written on nonfiction topics for decades, but like every other writer, I want to be a famous novelist with an eight movie deal! :P

So, I've been using fanfiction to practice my fiction writing skills. I don't know why I never tried to before (I've been aware of it since the early days of fan-made Star Trek magazines in the late 1970's and early 1980's, but only rediscovered it online in 2008). Thanks to fanfiction, I've beaten the First Chapter Blues and finished several projects with sequels in the works.
