I write a little Star Trek TOS fanfic, and if that’s among your reading tastes, i have a few works in various stages of completion. These are purely for fun, but there’s nothing wrong and, really, everything right, with doing something purely for fun, writing or reading.
I enjoy working with the supporting and background characters from the series, using the Big Three in smaller roles. It’s a big universe to play in. The list that follows is the first batch, most of which are completely edited. If you have a preference for Wattpad reading, I’ll be putting them up there as well as doing a quick PDF for download here.
Everything listed below is either complete or in a late draft stage. The dates attached are when I expect to make them available, spread out so there’s a little anticipation involved. I have plans for more and have even started some of those. I’ll try to keep this page up to date.
I may also, for convenience, eventually collect the shorter works listed below into a single file.
Live long and prosper.
