Author has written 62 stories for Power Rangers, Mutant X, NCIS, Criminal Minds, and Sentinel.

I've been writing for over 15 years now, started in the Power Rangers fandom, then expanded out into the Sentinel fandom followed by Mutant X, with NCIS being the newest addition. I have many stories that are not currently posted, and my summer project will to be to slowly put them all up on Fanfiction.net, with some of the older ones being edited to reflect a decade's worth of growth as a writer.

November 2014: My first fanfic was written in 1997, posted elsewhere as Fanficiton.net didn't exist then. I still plug along, I know some of my WIPs are like WAAAYYYY past due for an update...I promise to try. That's my resolution for 2015: finish An Eye for An Eye, White Knight in Shining Armor, and Life Interrupted. Those are the old ones. I expect to finish Gamesters before year end. And perhaps I'll repost the old stories eventually, just so they are out there. I confess to being proud of each and every story I've written, and any author who says otherwise is lying. They are my children, so to speak, and frankly the only ones I'll ever have, and I am proud of them, flaws and all. It feels good to be writing semi-regularly again, after almost five years when I wrote nothing at all. I appreciate and value all feedback, except that one 'guest' who told me I didn't know how to spell the characters' names. When I'd flat out said in the first disclaimer that the misspellings were on purpose and intentional and all that. Anyway, I'm off to try and finish Gamesters, and hope the upcoming holiday season is awesome for all the wonderful folks who come to FanFiciton.net to read and enjoy. K

May 2015: My cancer is back, and the word is I'm on the losing side of this battle. Fear not, I don't give up or give in, but reality is what it is. So I'm planning to post all my old efforts so something may survive me. Not much of a legacy but all I have to offer. Some of these gems were written over 15 years ago. In fact, the very first story, a Power Rangers fic titled 'Strangers with Familiar Faces" was the very first, and prompted my closest friend to ask if I'd been a Nazi in a former life. So considered yourself warned. K

July 7, 2015: Today I posted the last of my old stories, so the deed is done for better or worse. My goodness, it took me up to having 62 stories! I really didn't realize I'd done so many. It was tempting - at times very tempting - to fix, update, or modify in some way the older stories. I resisted that urge and they exist here as they were written all those years ago. I have no intention at present to post any new stories, only to try to update the quartet of WIPs on this site. K
