Welcome to my profile page! Nice to see you.

THE LATEST NEWS: March 25th, 2014

I *will* be back to writing fanfic, especially "The Undead Down Below" with Luckie D. She's such an awesome co-author!

What has slowed me down is that I'm not only Belz's social media consultant, but I'm also his assistant now. (YES!!!! *happy dance*) It happened solely by my being in the right place at the right time. 99% of how I assist him is via e-mail, fielding inquiries and such, because he's mostly at his home in the South of France now that he's not on SVU. The most exciting thing about all of this? He and his writing partner, David Wayne, made me an Executive Producer on their new movie because I've been working so hard on it behind the scenes.

Get ready to scream: Belz knew I had an idea for a VERY unique show idea. He asked me to pitch to him and he loved the idea! I invited David Wayne to write this series with me -- and he said YES! We're working really hard on the series "bible" and pilot script, so Belz can see if he can sell the idea and get it produced! This takes up a lot of my time in all the best ways, and I will share news about the progress HERE first. Stay tuned for more details as they happen -- and keep your fingers crossed for the three of us, please!

How did all of this cool writing progress happen? Because of the spec script I wrote for SVU, to give to Belz as a birthday gift. (David forwarded it to him, for which I will be forever grateful!) This is an example of FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS, because you NEVER KNOW when things will happen to make your dreams come true.

Now get out there and WRITE! :)

If you're still interested in reading my fanfic, please let me know. It's always good to hear what you like most, and what should be updated first.

Thank you,

-- Cardinal

Previous News -- UPDATED

Yes, I did change my avatar -- thank you for noticing!

It's a pic of Belz and myself, as he signs copies of "Hit List" his latest book written with David Wayne. He was at Book Soup in West Hollywood, CA on 4/24/13 and we all had a *great* time. I wanted to get a pic of myself with Bebe, but that didn't happen because Bebe was on the move, exploring every nook and cranny of the fabulous bookstore. (He did come to me for petting each time I called him. So cute!) I can tell you that Belz looked fabulous, he was in fine form, and it when he realized it was me he gave me a kiss on the lips! LOL! He's the sweetest, kindest, most intelligent man you could ever hope to meet.

The First of My Crime Novels

If you're a regular visitor to this page, you'll know that I had originally thought about taking it down. Why? Because literary agents do not like writers to do fanfic. Why would that matter? Because I'd originally hoped to have a novel written by the end of 2009, but life had other plans. And now, with the popularity of online publishing for e-readers, writers have more options available than simply working to get literary representation in hopes they can see print via a publishing company.

I have been working on a novel in which my original character (Sarah Zelman) is the focus. It's definitely in progress and I work a little on it almost every day.

Fanfic Update

I'm also working on new SVU fanfic with Munch & Zelman, as well as polishing up some of my previous fanfic, especially "November Rain." I had posted some fic under my Glock35Gal name, but I'll be reposting that here -- then killing the GG account. This way, readers won't get too confused since you all know me better as Cardinal Robbins. :)

I'm working on a Munch fanfic with one of my favorite SVU fanfic authors, Luckie D, and we're doing a zombie fic! LOL! It's called "The Undead Down Below," and it features her OC, Maria Frank. We're letting Sarah Zelman have a much-deserved short rest, but she will be MENTIONED as this fic progresses.

Belz Remains BUSY, BUSY, BUSY in The South of France

If you haven't checked out his book "Dead Wrong: Straight Facts on the Country's Most Controversial Cover-Ups," you should definitely read it! Belz and his writing partner, David Wayne, have made "Dead Wrong" an extremely compelling book. What even better? They have a 'sequel' coming up, which will be released in April 2013, "Hit List." Both books are nonfiction, and I look forward to writing detailed reviews on both of them very soon.

You probably already know Belz has written "UFO's, JFK and Elvis: Conspiracies You Don't Have to be Crazy to Believe," but did you know he's also an accomplished novelist? His fiction includes, "I Am Not a Cop!" and "I Am Not a Psychic!" both written with the amazing Michael A. Black.

What's Belz working on right now? He's writing a book on his mentor, best friend and surrogate dad, Jerry Lewis! Look for more details here, coming as soon as I get them!

For Those Who Don't Know Me

I'm a long-time fanfic writer and publisher, who's now into "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" because the character of John Munch is too much fun to write! Check out my fav authors, who have been at this a lot longer than I have. (They're much better at this, too!) Read my work, but don't take it too seriously because I'm in it for fun.

E-mail I get frequently asks, "Why in the heck doesn't your fic get more reviews?!" The answer is: Because it's not like the 'usual' SVU fic you see almost constantly, thus it doesn't draw fans who leave a plethora of reviews. I'm fine with that, since reviews are a treat not a meal. I'm content to do what I do, leave it for my readership, and move on to the next project.

When I'm not writing, I relax by shooting a Glock 35 at the local firing range. (I over-qualified for LAPD, and almost qualified for Burbank PD! I found out I *do* shoot well enough for the FBI! LOL! (Targets. Love to shred 'em -- but my groupings are TIGHT!) I listen to a wide variety of music and podcasts on my iPod, from Coolio's rap to soft rock and country. I maintain a Facebook page (Cardinal Robbins), a Twitter account (@Glock35Gal) and you can always send me a message here on FF.Net.

Thank you in advance for reading and reviewing my fics. I always appreciate it!
