|Bio:||This is a backup journal for if/when LJ goes belly-up. I plan to gradually copy my LJ across, and then cross-post to here. It will also be a good place to keep up with the friends here when LJ is down.|
Despite having a physics degree and spending most of my working life so far as a programmer, I prefer writing.
I've lived and worked in Israel, England, and Germany, and have travelled all over Europe and much of South East Asia. I've had holidays in Australia and Fiji since, but my last big trip was to the UK for the Star One 2004 Blake's 7 con.
I enjoy science fiction, and became a fan of Blake's 7 in 2001 when reruns were shown on a local channel six evenings a week, a very intense and addictive immersion. Captivated by Vila especially, I was driven to write fan fiction to give them a little happiness and hope.
When I'm not in a world of my own or someone else's for that matter (I love to read and watch SF or anything else inventive and escapist), I also enjoy drawing and acting, often the fool. I live with Greg and three cats.
Re 'friending'. I very much dislike the term and prefer to regard it as subscribing to LJs I like to read. If I unsubscribe, it's because I don't have much in common with you, not because I don't like you.
Here's the weather pixie to tell you what the weather's like here in Auckland, my Hogwarts House. and a pet white tiger cub. Click on any of them if you'd like your own.
