Author has written 58 stories for Hardcastle and McCormick.

Hello,

Welcome to my profile page. I am a certifiable TV addict. Most people that know me would say that I am a walking encyclopedia of TV trivia.

Technically I started writing fanfic (long-hand in any spiral notebook I could find) back in the '70's. I sitll have most of them and they're pretty funny to read nowadays and there's parts I'll read and say to myself, 'wow, you wrote that?'

Some of my favorite TV shows over the years have been, Emergency, Bonanza, Big Valley, Hardcastle and McCormick, Streets of San Francisco, Marcus Welby M.D., Simon and Simon, Silk Stalkings and many other's along the way. I see the buddy theme in most of these shows that really appeals to me! (Posted fanfic around the web...include H&M, BV and SS - one of these days I'll do some of the others too)

Anyway thanks for checking out my profile, I hope you enjoy my stories and feel free to drop me a line via or at [email protected].

Have a great day!
