Author has written 66 stories for CSI.

I love Grissom and Sara. I used to love CSI, too, but...well, you know.

Their (previous) relationship fascinated me. Their current one frustrates me no end. They were two real, extremely intelligent people who were held back because of their own inner...stuff.

Unraveling some of that stuff through my little scenarios was my way of setting the world right. From one small story written as a birthday gift to a dear friend...to the 63rd "tale" that, for now, ends my CSI fan fiction journey, it has been quite a ride. And it's been one with a lot of very kind people cheering me along the way. For which, I thank you very, very much. Nothing feels quite as wonderful, to a frustrated writer, than having your work read and appreciated.

For those just discovering this page, welcome to the world of Summer Reign. I treat my characters with respect, I hope, and strive to give them the happiness that the series seems to have deemed unnecessary.
