I started writing fanfiction a couple of years ago as mrstrentreznor. I thought it was a wonderful concept to take existing characters and flesh them out a little more. Or to write the scenes that didn’t get filmed or written in the original work. I have given away more than a million words on fanfic; but I discovered that I had a million more in my head. And they were my words, my characters and my stories.
I am an overeducated Australian single mother. I feel I should be witty and informative about how many children and household pets I have, but really the chickens lay eggs and I am yet to see what use the teenagers are.
I also read a lot and play my music loud... really loud.
I won a short story writing competition. My winning entry for the bitingduckpress and storied competition, ’Protein’ was posted on the Storiad site, here:
Only 500 words. It’s actually quite hard to get ideas across in that few words. But I must have done it and they commented that I made them laugh, too.
Thanks to both http://bitingduckpress.com/ and storiad for running the competition.

Quite an intensely stirring piece of fiction! This one I had to wait a while after reading in order to collect my thoughts and regain my composure before attempting to write an intelligible review. My guess is a person would have to be dead inside not to be moved by this story and I'm sure nothing I write here will begin to do it justice. Such a beautifully written, and eerily emotionally accurate portrayal of the far reaching impact and all encompassing effects an abusive past relationship has on a mother and her young children as they attempt to start over and rebuild their lives. Wonderful characterizations down to the smallest nuances and a lovely slow but steady romance built upon friendship and trust will hold your attention captive throughout this gripping tale of a family's hope for a new beginning. Absolutely loved this! Definitely a must read!
