My Secret Shame



I have a confession to make.  I write fanfic.  In fact, I spend at least an hour every night coming up with new stories set in beloved worlds. Sometimes, I even write crossovers.  

You may wonder why this is an embarrassing admission for me. Lots of famous F+SF writers got their start writing fanfic. This is a legitimate career path for an aspiring author, right?

You know, if I was writing awesome adventures set in the worlds of “Clockwork Angel”, “Magic’s Pawn,” or “His Majesty’s Dragon,” I might agree with you. That could be some really excellent fanfiction. 

Unfortunately, my Fanfic has an editor, and she just turned three. So, instead of something people want to read, my stories revolve around the world of Dora and Diego, with occasional Winx crossovers when things get really crazy.

They are the bane of my existence and the cause of my exhaustion.

Want to see what I mean?   

I present Dora and Diego and the Hungry Hungry Bears who Eat All the Mommies and the Daddies.
