I'm a QAF fanatic and make sure to watch my favourite eps once a week.  I have only been writing since September 2016 and find that I have to get at least one chapter done a day!  


With regards to my writing, there will always be the following constants:


Brian and Justin will always be together, though past tricks may come back to into their lives


Anti-Michael and ant-Lindsay...with their behaviour leading to break up of his, and maybe, her relationship with their partners, which leads me to...


Ben and Mel's characters written with more backbone and more insight respectively to their partners behaviour than in the series...


Although I will write them in an unlikeable way from time to tiime as well as other characters, but not as much as Michael and Lindsay.


Strong original female character 


Foodcentric...am also a food whore!


Furballs...I absolutely love cats and dogs so one or both will feature.


And as I live in London some of my words/phrases will be different to the American English but will try and catch as many as I can.


I hope you enjoy the stories I write and know I will enjoy the stories I read
