Jay Kirkpatrick

I'm a writer, a wife, a mother, a lazy crafter, a mediocre artist and full-time bipolar. A former journalist and college teacher, I've been writing M/M stories for about 10 years, along with various other things. I've been writing fiction for as long as I can remember, but "Freedom" is the first work of fiction I've ever had published anywhere other than as fanfic. My first fanfic (back before it even had a name) was for "Garrison's Gorillas" and "The Monkees," so I've come a long way both as a writer and as a fan. Beyond that, I'm a nerd or a geek, whichever is the most popular term at the moment. I love all things Tolkien, Farscape, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Buffy and more. And also "Criminal Minds," which sort of breaks the mold. I once went to a con dressed as a "Con Wardrobe Assistant." (It's a long story, but it was fun.)
