Author has written 12 stories for Death in Paradise.

It was winter 2015. I needed sunshine and I found an amusing little who-dunnit with a nice cast. Pity about the first guy but, hey, tropical beaches!

Started watching DiP again Christmas 2017. Everything changed. I was hooked... then I remembered 'the first guys' fate. Cannot even think about S3 E1.

Found 'FanFiction' New Year's Day. Not hooked... gaffed. Hopeless... and it hurts so good.

Found the 'AO3' website a few days later. Oh, good! Double the fun.

Richard Poole lives on, in our hearts and in our minds and (thank god) in fandom. He's quite cheeky when you get to know him.

March 24/18:

I am posting entirely different and new short story collections over on the AO3 site. These are NOT the same stories as posted here on FanFiction.

I am keeping my 'Perspective on episodes/books/films' stories here on FanFiction where I started out. Oh, and my Johnny English/DiP crossover series just because and that's all the reason I need! Come on! Poole and Bough? Together? What's not to like?

March 2020:

Wow, that took longer than anticipated... but my 'Perspective on episodes' is finally done. But that was just my first impression of Seasons 1 and 2. I've watched everything over again (more than once) and now I'm starting 'Beyond S2 - A New Day'. There's no telling how many stories that collection will have since I'm still thinking everything over and scribbling notes to myself.

My 'Perspective on books/films' collections will be left open, as will 'Johnny English'. I'm still hunting down the movies and the books are still being printed and I live in eternal hope of JE4 so you just never know, you know?

July 2020:

I thought I should add here that I post every Monday morning, as early as I can, with my first coffee in hand and before I completely wake up and second-guess myself about whether or not I'm crazy. It's quiet, everyone is still asleep, and I can hear the little voices quite clearly.

To all you new readers checking out my profile, I just wanted to say 'Hi' and please don't feel shy about dropping me a line at '[email protected]' if you're really REALLY shy. I don't give out personal info in my real life and I sure won't do it here either. I like nothing better than to talk DiP with invested people and try to suss out all the really interesting details of our favourite characters lives, loves, and liberties.

The Foul Murder of Richard Poole reviews
A more or less friendly collaboration between the ever patient Isainparadise and the somewhat less patient Sweepeaspatch. There's a mystery on the beach... but does it need solving?

Beyond Season 2 - A New Day: short story collection 1 reviews
More stories about our favourite topic but I'm carrying on past a certain event that will never happen in my world. Ever. Most of these stories will harken back to S1/S2 but some will reference future situations too. I'll try to stay within the show's framework and not go off into total flights of fancy (that's what the OTHER fan site is for). S/P

SO English! reviews
A Special Envoy to the Queen visits Saint-Marie. This is a Johnny English cross-over but I couldn't list it as such so it's here as a DiP story. This is after JE1. JE2 never happened, sigh. JE3 isn't out yet so there's nothing to refute my version of events... and I'm going with it! **my series "Life With Richard" hasn't been posted yet so there are some spoilers here**

More short stories based on the episodes. No rhyme. No reason. Just the compulsion.

These stories arise on their own as I watch the episodes. They may jump around a bit. They certainly are not a single story-line.
