Bio:

Wow, so many years of my life devoted to this wonderful show! I started writing fan-fic back in 1997 (because that was when episodes began to air in Australia) and haven't stopped ever since, even if now my writing is in other fandoms. Thanks to this show, I was part of the Pretender Virtual Series for four years before moving on to write other things. My first book was published in 2005, my second in 2012 and my third in 2016. I have also completed my PhD in creative writing. And all of that stems, in a wide variety of ways, from The Pretender. 


 


So clearly it's all Steve and Craig's fault...

Summary: If you've ever wondered how The Pretender characters would react to fanfic writers and the situations we put them in, this is the series for you!

This unique round robin series (written by many different authors) started on PretendFic by Katherine Bruce (though she had no idea she was starting anything!). Then Danielle : - ) was greatly inspired and wrote a little sequel, and the rest quickly started to come into focus.
