I'm a middle-aged, professional writer of non-fiction, too lazy to create my own characters for my decidedly non-professional fiction hobby. So--fanfiction.

I like to read and write stories for and about grown-ups; somehow, I just can't seem to get myself all exercised about the trials and tribulations of adolescents. So, you'll get no Drarry, HP/HG, or other teen-angst stories from me--probably (never say never)--but I enjoy reading a good tale on just about any topic.
