Bio:

52, mother of three.  Live in PA, have been a die-hard TOS fan since I was 11 and saw my first episode 'A Private Little War'.   I'm particularly partial to the Kirk-Spock-McCoy friendship (no slash here), so most of my work centers around this.

I've had no formal training, never took writing classes, nor had a burning desire to put pen to paper since childhood.  Outside of assignments for school, I'd never written anything in my life until early 2009, when two other Trek-author friends dared me to try my hand at fan fiction - something I was convinced I simply couldn't do.

Well, apparently they knew better than me. ;-)  Since then I've penned 60 stories, with more in the works.  Just want to say thanks to two wonderful ladies who helped me discover a side of myself I never knew was there. :D

Since I've become more prolific than I ever intended, here's a list of my works, in chronological order within TOS as well as my own 'fanon':
