About Me: 

I was born in 1970. This means that I was 8 years old when BoTP debuted. Like most American fans around my age, BoTP was my introduction to anime.  G-2 was my first cartoon crush. Yes, at the tender age of 8, I had an affinity for the "rebel". :)

I saw the Gatchaman OAV around 1999 or so, when my then boyfriend, now husband sent me a copy of it.  He was also a BoTP fan as a child and when he sent me the OAV, that's when I learned that BoTP wasn't an "original" show.

I did not see an episode of Gatchaman until I was in my 30s. I saw a few episodes that were included in the DVD's that Rhino released of BoTP. Then ADV put out the entire series and the rest, they say, is history.

I currently live in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I am an undergraduate at South Dakota State University and my major is psychology.  And yes, whenever my husband and I cross the state and head for the Black Hills, we crack Lava Jesus jokes whenever we're in the vicinity of  Mount Rushmore. 

I don't have much time these days to write for fun. However, I have a lot of Gatch/BoTP related freewriting in a safe place should I find the time to write and revise.

Oh, and I still dislike 7-Zark-7 immensely.  ;-)

You can find me on Twitter--my handle is @PrairieChzHead 

I also spend too much time on Pinterest. You can find me there at  

I also dabble in art. As in drawing, not Art as in Garfunkel. Because that would be weird.

Series by msannomalley
An alternate BoTP universe. When everything we've known as the truth turns out to be one deadly lie?

This universe was inspired by a lot of things: dystopian fiction, my frustration with certain edits in the BoTP series, Star Wars, the original Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, and many, many, many more things. This universe is kind of dark.
