It wasn't that long ago that I had no idea what slash even was. My first tentative steps into fan fiction started with Trixie Belden fics, where I was a reader only. Then I discovered Syfy's Alice and started reading those fics. And I thought...hmmm. I could do that.

The first fics I ever wrote were Hatter and Alice fics. And the Alice community at was so welcoming and wonderful and active. I got good reviews and more good reviews, and just kept on writing. Through the Alice fics I met the very funny smiles2go, who was also writing in that fandom. She's the one who steered me in the direction of slash.

Smiles is the one who introduced me to the Sentinel fandom, the NCIS fandom, and the Stargate Atlantis fandom. And those fandoms are rife with slash. Turns out...I liked it! Something about male/male relationships really spoke to me. So I branched out, leaving poor Hatter and Alice behind to write John/Rodney, Jim/Blair, DiNozzo/Gibbs and Steve/Danny (I got into Hawaii Five-0 all on my own, LOL!)

The hardest thing about writing slash, for me, is feeling awkward when people ask me about it. It's not something I generally offer up. I'm so lucky that my hubby, who doesn't understand why I have to gay up perfectly good characters, puts up with me and even helps me when I get stuck on plot points.

Now that I'm thinking about trying to get a gay romance published, all I can think is - what am I going to tell my grandparents? LOL! My mom's cool with it, and probably would be even if she wasn't a lesbian. But if my grandparents find out I published something I know my grandma is going to want to read it. Yikes!

Of course, maybe no-one will want to publish my gay romance and all this worry will be for naught. Just have to wait and see I guess.
