Prudence Walker has 10 stories, here at Crystals.
Beginning with "Hacked Off", a short, short story, she has progressed to three
multi-part epics and has become the creator of a whole new universe for other writers to
"Hacked Off" was partially a warning to all hackers that "youd
better be careful just whos site you try to hack into". It gave us a brief look
inside the mind of our, at that time, resident muse. Little did we know that a Kiwi
steamroller had been unleashed upon the poor, unsuspecting TG world!
"Hard or Software" was Prues next piece. It was a bit longer and
foretold yet a bit more of the talent lurking behind that innocent little "Prue"
of the chatrooms. From there, she branched out into her own universe, HUGGLEBUGS, writing
several stories in it.
Her multi-part stories, "Johns Gift", "Inheritor", and
"Ultimate Infiltrator" have enabled Prue to stretch her abilities as a writer,
and have really placed her in the forefront of what I call, "The New Breed" of
TG Fiction writers. These new writers have taken a kinder, gentler approach to the genre
and I think it is a welcome change of direction. Instead of trying for a shock value in a
story, these new girls have embraced a sweet and sentimental approach to TG Fiction,
making their readers feel just a little bit better after each story is read.
Prues first story was a bit short and, while it was rough, as spelling and usage
go, it provided the impetus to Prue, who grew better and better with each succeeding tale.
"Johns Gift" was a true epic and was very well written.
"Inheritor", in which I played a very small part as historian/geography
consultant, was a wonderful tale of suspense, deceit, justice, love, and retribution, all
lovingly crafted and skillfully directed. "Ultimate Infiltrator", Prues
newest tale is yet another example of her ability to weave a captivating tale and impart
it to us in an entertaining and informative way.
Prue has gotten better and better with each succeeding story she has written and I see
no signs that she will stop, or even slow down, anytime soon.
Her compassion and understanding have been instrumental in helping several T-girls find
their way through the darkness and she has inspired others to "be themselves"
despite what the world tried to tell them they had to be.
Ive enjoyed every one of Prues stories and I dont think she has
written her best yet. She will, though. Be there when it happens, folks. If you like the
sweet, sentimental approach to a story, by all means, read Prues offerings if you
havent already done so. She is, if it matters at all, a genetic girl who is fully
supportive of all of us "not quite certain what we are" folks as well as those
who have decided what they are and have taken steps to insure that the world sees them
Prue is a great writer, a great person, and the bestest friend anyone could ever have.
