I hope you have enjoyed reading my stories, all based on characters played by the very talented John Simm. That I've felt inspired by so many of his perfomances to write all this fiction still amazes me, and as I embark on the publication of what I hope might be the first of many original works of fiction, I have to say a big "Thank you!" to John for being my 'muse', I suppose. Certainly without his portrayals of Sam Tyler in 'Life of Mars' and The Master in 'Doctor Who' I would not have started writing again (I wrote the odd fan-fic back in the late seventies/early eighties but TBH I wasn't very good at it!).
I know that to some people, the idea of being a 'fan' of an actor, musician or author may seem a little odd, perhaps even childish, but I disagree - we all have interests and hobbies, people or things which inspire us. During my time in fandom (both pre and post-internet!) I've been impressed and amazed by the talent and dedication of other fans - people who create art, costumes and fiction all based on whatever it is they happen to enjoy; I think it's wonderful. And I've made some lovely friends, too (waves at
them - you know who you are!).
If you enjoy what you read here, I would love it if you would leave a comment, either here on the blog or using the contact form (which is never posted on the site, only I will see it). Writers love feedback and constructive criticism - apart from the love of writing and creating itself, it is the one thing which spurs us on. You don't have to reveal your real name or any contact details!
