Here I have selected what I feel are the best (completed) examples of my writing in the fan fiction genres. Stories are sorted in alphabetical order according to fandom.
To write fan fiction requires a slightly different set of writing skills than original fiction. Fan fiction authors are required to work with characters that someone else has created, get inside their heads, and keep them not only recognisable but true to themselves, whilst simultaneously adding something fresh to draw and keep readers’ interest. Writing fan fiction over a long period of time enables a writer to hone skills that can bring more life and depth to their own characters. Working with, or volunteering as, beta-readers also gives a taste of working with/as proof-readers and editors in the publishing world.
Characters, settings etc in the fiction in this section belong to their respective creators. The stories are written out of a love and respect for the original creations and no copyright infringement is intended.
