I'm an American of Irish descent and a life-long sci-fi fan. I discovered Dr. Who along with my kids in the 80s, with Tom Baker. I write fan fiction for the simple reason that it is fun and relaxing for me. My other interests include, but are not limited to history, Celtic music, the harp and anything to do with my grandchildren.
