About the Authors
I am a thirty-something female in the Midlands areas of the UK who
likes to write non-slash and low to no-smarm fanfiction. I am married
with no children and no plans for any, and no pets at the moment -
unless you count the wild birds that frequent our garden - especially
the female blackbird who comes begging for food at the backdoor
I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also referred to as ME), but
fortunately I am still able to do some things, like write stories,
though only for short periods of time and interspersed with much
rest. Please be patient with me if I am writing sequels; these
can take me some time to finish, partly due to how little writing I can
do within a week, partly due to the fact that I always have several
stories on the go at the same time (!) and partly due to the fact that
I am a very undisciplined writer, who slips between stories as and when
the mood takes me!
At present, I write mainly for Stargate: Atlantis, but I used to write
for The Sentinel TV programme as well. There are twenty-four Sentinel
stories, three Sentinel/Atlantis crossover stories, and loads of
Atlantis stories - I've lost count! Some of my Sentinel stories are
co-written with Jayne Perry, and pretty much all of my stories, both Sentinel and
Atlantis, are beta read by her. Thanks mate!
In The Sentinel, I am a Blair babe, though I do like Jim as well, and
enjoy their friendship. I wrote a mix of angst, humour and friendship
fic for them.
In Atlantis, I am a Rodney babe, with Carson and Radek being close
behind him, and I like the Rodney/John/Team friendship thing. I write
mainly Rodney angst (sometimes with whump), with some humour, lots of friendship, and
occasionally even some action/adventure (though I'm not so good at
this). I rarely write Ford - I like him, but I find him difficult to
write for - so most of my stories are set second season and beyond. I
also seem to be writing a lot of AUs in this fandom!
Basically, though, I'm an angst bunny, who likes to throw in a bit of
humour here and there! You will notice I use British spellings,
though I do try to use American terms (or Canadian, Czech etc,
depending on the character I’m writing for), but sometimes I make
mistakes - please feel free to politely point them out to me,
preferably providing me with alternative words/phrases.
I hope you enjoy the stories - comments and constructive criticism welcome - no flames please. Thank you.

Slightly older, Jayne is married with two sons and two pet
tortoises. She lives on the south coast in the UK.
We’ve been friends for many, many years – since the late
eighties I believe! Due to her commitments, she isn’t able
to write as much as she’d like to, but is happy to co-write with
me from time to time, and often helps me to work out tricky plot
details (especially actions scenes), and is my trusted beta. She
has written a few short Atlantis stories that I’ve posted up on
this site for her, and is a Rodney fan with Radek close behind. All comments (unless they are flames) will be
passed onto her.

My husband. Not a fan of TV in general and has never watched
any Stargate programmes, nor The Sentinel. However, he has had to
put up with an obsessed wife and has absorbed more about these shows,
particularly Atlantis, than he probably wants to admit to.
He wrote an Atlantis version of a T S Eliot poem that you can find on
this site (in the Atlantis Fandom section) – I helped with names
of people and places, but otherwise it’s all down to what
he’s heard me rambling on about. I think he did a very good
job, for not having seen or read any Atlantis episodes or
fiction. I also think I need to stop rambling on about it so much
around him before he retaliates with long discussions about Bridge
hands he has played…!
