About Me

I’ve always had an active imagination, dreaming up entire scenarios before I even opened my mouth to make a statement, dreaming up imaginative people and events just for the fun of it, living out the life of a superhero in my head.  I do it because it’s fun, and it’s how my brain works.  There is no controlling it so I go along for the ride.  Wheeee.

It was a natural transition to putting words on paper.  First in diaries after I got tired of recording the real stuff that was going on, then I had a little fun with journals.  The breakthrough came when I wrote a four-part, short story based on the BBC Network series, Torchwood, a world created by Russell T. Davies as a spin-off from the Doctor Who franchise that he was piloting at the time.  Like many Torchwood fans, I was upset with losing a dear character, Ianto Jones, so I rewrote the ending of the third series of the show to bring the character back (hey, lots of people did the very same thing).  That developed into the short story, Past, Present, and Future, which I self-published, or submitted if you will, on a site that houses fanfiction of this nature, A Teaspoon And An Open Mind: A Doctor Who Fan Fiction Archive.  This brings me to where I am today.

I live in a small village near a larger city (so it’s not like we have to grow our own food or sew our clothing) in Michigan with my wonderful husband (who hopes I’m the next J.K. Rowling – he’s just so cute), a beautiful daughter (who is tons more mature than I’ll ever be), and a cat named Clockwise (she got her name when my daughter was in Kindergarten learning how to tell time).  I’ve recently taken advantage of an early retirement and can now turn to writing as my creative outlet and secret passion.
