I'm an aspiring author of original fiction who writes fan fiction about Spike to practice my writing skills. What better way to practice: writing about one of the most memorable characters ever on television. I also co-write stories with my good friend in the UK, mabel_marsters. You can find our stories at 2writers4spike. And I have to add that one of the very best things about writing fan fiction is getting the opportunity to entertain fellow fans. I just love interacting with the readers who love the same things I do.
