Paul Franco The other day when I finished reading "Skyfall," I wondered how you would write a fanfic of "Firefly". Weird and random, I know, but it made me laugh. . . ;o)

Yes, I'm an artist. Mostly I draw for my own enjoyment. Scifi art is one of my favorite doodle topics.

Firefly is one of my favorite SF shows! I enjoy Castle, too. One of my favorite episodes is when Nathan Fillion dressed up as the Firefly captain for a Halloween party :-D.


message 16: by Jessica

Jessica Hi Catherine! I absolutely love your Lost Continent series. I have read all of them about eight times. Are you planning to write any more for that series? I keep hoping!
