I find that I tend to write novel length stories rather than short stories. Although I have been known to do those on occasion. I also seem to do two stories at a time that are linked in some way. No clue why I do this.

I try to keep my chapters short so each is a relatively fast read, which is why there are a lot of them. (Lots of short chapters instead of a few over long and cumbersome ones.) In this way I hope I am not overwhelming the reader, or boring them to death.

I am always open to corrections in punctuation, spelling, plot and characterization. Your derisive comments are always welcome. If you find any errors, feel free to contact me. My beta readers and spell check don't always catch everything.

My favorite Doctor: Ah...now, there you have me. It depends on my mood and the type of story I'm telling. I tend to stick with 4-7, although, thanks to the Big Finish Audios, I am becoming quite a fan of the 6th Doctor.

Character flaw: I find myself irritated when others use internet shorthand and incorrect punctuation/capilization in their Bios & (serious)reviews. To me, it indicates that the same lack of attention to detail will be in their fics.


I have completed uploading the Fourth Doctor companion arc. The stories are numbered before each title to designate their order in the arc. It isn't really necessary to read them in order, as I have made notes covering any relevant information the reader may need relating to the new companion, Jason Krystovan. No, he isn't a Mary Sue. He's a shape shifter. Really.

The 5th Doctor "Who Is My Enemy" series has been completed uploaded, including the novel length story "Terror Behind The Iron Curtain," which was published in the "Iron & Silk" fanzine and continues in this timeline. It is the third story in my Doctor Who/Eroica Crossover series.

Next (a 4 part series) "The Transmutation Of Time." This series crosses timelines, Doctors, and companions.

The 6th Doctor series consists of 2 very long and intricate stories. The first is "Random Chance." The second is "Trials & Transmutations," which was published as its own fanzine for WestCon 2006. The addendum "Mission: Eldeberon" has been broken out into its own separate post.

Enjoy.

Doctor Who/Eroica Crossover Series by Margaret Price [Reviews - 0]
Since NATO of Eroica and UNIT of Doctor Who operated in the same time period, it seemed a natural to do crossovers using the two. Especially since they involve the military and secret government activities.
Don't worry if you know nothing about From Eroica With Love. Neither does Jason. XD
