|Well, it's true--my novel "Intimations of Mortality" will be available from Berkley/Ace publishing in October of 1997. It took me a year to get the contract, twenty days to write the thing, and then another year before it's printed.
||I really must learn to write more slowly.

It's a paperback, about 284 pages. For those of you who have been unable to read the text on the back of the bookcover, here it is:
In his quest for mortality, Nick Knight has tried everything. But when a mysterious woman gives Nick a strange doll that she claims will grant his wish, the result is a series of dreams more vivid and disturbing than any Nick has ever had before.
In them, he is mortal, working in a police department dominated by vampires. LaCroix is mortal as well, and leader of the human underground. Dr. Natalie Lambert is an alluring vampire assigned to make Nick immortal once again - his reward for a job well done . . .
Are they just dreams . . . or something else? Nick isn't sure. Nor is he sure just what price he's willing to pay for his mortality . . .

ON SALE IN MARCH 1997: A STIRRING OF DUST
by Susan Sizemore
Who is the monster responsible for a series of decapitation murders that
have terrorized Toronto? Nick thinks that one of his kind may be
involved. Tracy's prime suspect is an ex-con whose crime was killing his
unfaithful wife--by cutting off her head. It will take a lot of old-
fashioned police work, and some help from unexpected sources, before they
both discover that monsters come in many guises.
AVAILABLE IN OCTOBER 1997: INTIMATIONS OF MORTALITY
by Susan M. Garrett
What is the dream and what the reality? How much is too much to risk,
when the prize is the heart's desire? And that heart's desire--does
anyone *really* know what it is? Questions that Nick must answer when
a series of vivid dreams in which everything that he knows is radically
changed begin to impinge on his waking life.
AVAILABLE IN MARCH 1998: THESE OUR REVELS
by Anne Hathaway Nayne
It's midsummer's eve, 1599, and Nicholas Chevalier, Elizabethan gentleman
and sometime actor in the Company of his friend, Will Shakespeare, is
about to meet a young woman who will challenge his perceptions of vampire
life--and mortal death. Meanwhile, in another part of London, a ship has
landed, bringing one Javier Vachon, and his new companion Screed, back
to the world that he last saw in sunlight.
Officially, I've been writing fiction since I was eight years old. It all began with fan fiction--they didn't make enough new episodes of my favorite Saturday morning cartoon and children's shows and so I started writing my own. I actually started taking notice of what I was writing back about 1976 or so, when I first got interested in Fantastic Journey and then Doctor Who. In 1983, I starting printing fanzines of my Doctor Who (Time Winds) and multi-media/original fiction (Wynter Tydes) without even knowing what a fanzine really was.
My fan fiction has included a number of fandoms, from Forever Knight, Doctor Who and Shadow Chasers, to more esoteric entries such as Q.E.D. and The Questor Tapes. I've written comedy, drama, mystery, and horror, but prefer action/adventure, turning clichés on their ears, and I'm hoping to add links to fiction I've written in the past for you to download and view at your leisure.
If there's something you're looking for, or haven't seen in a while, let me know.

There have been a number of people who have been asking about a series of multi-media fanzines I'd written called The Karenina Continuity Chronicles. You can now find a detailed flyer here.

amateur fiction, as well as a Forever Knight episode guide.
Another excellent resource is Mr. Happy's Forever Knight Web Page, where you can find episode guides, links to many other FK sites, etc.
