Where are you from (Country and/or State)?
How did you get into the Mag7 fandom?
Believe it or not, I fell into it. I
was surfing the net looking for TV shows and found one for Mag7.
Then I found the Blackraptor, followed by other websites, and began
devouring the stories.
How long have you been writing Mag7
Since Oct. 2001
How has your writing changed since you
It’s a lot clearer. The main plot
holds up much better and the characters are more mine than fandom.
Is this your only fandom, your major
fandom or one of the many?
It is the only fandom I write in.
What is it about this fandom that you
I like the characters and the diverse
placements of said characters (i.e.: all the AU’s) The characters
lend themselves to almost any type of plot and situation.
Did you like the Old West before Mag7
or did that come afterwards?
I grew up on westerns. Gene Audry, John
Wayne, Clint Eastwood were my heroes growing up. I felt the same
way of John Wayne’s death as most people did about Elvis’.
To me it was a sad ending to a great era. The western shows I loved
most were: The Big Family (just gotta love Heath!) and High Chaparral.
Did you see the show before you got
into the fandom or after, or haven’t you seen the show yet?
I watched the show first. I didn’t
even know what fandoms were until the series had long since ended.
What do you think about the show opposed
to the fandom? Is the show your main interest and the fandom comes
after or the other way around and why?
That is a hard question. I enjoyed the
show very much and would have liked to have seen it continued and
certain minor characters developed more, like Nettie and Mrs. Potter.
The fandom, though, is also as intriguing and entertaining. There
is so much diversity out there, that no two stories are truly alike.
True, some stories may have the same central event happening in
them (Ezra getting hurt or feeling pushed out) but the storytelling
is different as well as the conclusion.
What are you working on right now?
Nothing. I was in the midst of fixing
my one and only crossover, but RL came out of nowhere and knocked
me off my feet and left me totally unbalanced. When I get back on
course, I intend to post my story and then begin on my next Avalon
story. I also have several story ideas for my 7B series, and a couple
of others that are new AU’s. I have plot bunnies harvesting
at an amazing rate. I believe they multiply faster than real bunnies.
How and where do you write?
I usually have a main thought and then
I sit down and begin writing a story around it. I also, have been
know to just sit down and start writing and let it come at will.
I write at home (sometimes at work...shhhh. Let’s not tell)
What’s the hardest part about
writing in this fandom?
I don’t see a hard part about it.
Why do you write?
It gives me the ability to release my
feelings, thoughts and ideas that normally would be kept secret.
What writers do you think you've been
TwylaJane and Heather F for sure. They
are both such great writers. I also enjoy Tipper’s and Vi’s
work. If I sat and listed all the authors, we would fill too many
What advice would you offer to beginning
Don’t be afraid to post and that
it is all right if your first story tanks. Everyone has to begin
somewhere. This fandom is pretty good about accepting new authors.
I like that.
Where do you get your inspiration for
your stories from?
Mostly Real Life. Or TV. The Discovery,
History and TLC channels are great for inspiration.
Do you read any of the other AU’s
(ATF, LB and so on) out there and do you have a favourite?
I hate to name any personal favourites
because there is a lot that I haven’t seen or read and therefore
it would be unfair to the authors not to mention them. Although,
Twyla Jane’s and Jaye’s Little Ezra stories are quite
good. Far and few between (hint hint) but good.
What do you look for as a reader of
Storyline, some basis of reality, (if
a guy is shot four times they really don’t have the ability
to run a twenty mile chase), continuity.
Do you think there's anything missing
in the fandom? Types of stories
or certain characters that you'd like to see more of?
Are there any characters or situations
that you don't think you'll ever write?
Who’s your favourite character
Ezra! I just believe there is so much
to his character that wasn’t revealed in the show and he’s
fun to hurt. <eg>
Who’s your second favourite character
Hmmmm. That’s a hard one. I like
all the others pretty much equally (if written properly) after Ezra.
Who’s your favourite bad guy and
Anyone who hurts any of the seven, because
the “family” comes back and defends the fallen one (or
two, or three) and kicks their backside. The seven doesn’t
stand for anyone other than themselves hurting their family members.
What’s your favourite episode
Another hard one. I haven’t watched
them in awhile, but I would have to say Chinatown. We get to see
a side of Ezra that shows he isn’t always out for the money
and that he does have the ability to care and protect the “innocent”
What’s your favourite story and
To hard to name
Any favourite author?
Again too hard to name. There are just
so many talented authors out there that it would be unfair to me
and the writer’s who work hard putting their stories out there
to name just one.
What storyline would you most have liked
to see in season 3?
More about Buck’s past perhaps.
We know the least about him.
If you could change one thing about
the show, what would it be?
It would have lasted longer.
