Author has written 12 stories for Good Times.

Who am I? Just a big fan of the 70's series Good Times. When the writers killed off the James Evans character, the show went severely downhill. If you remember, Florida remarried some guy "Carl", and moved to Arizona.

If she had the money to move to Arizona, why did she leave her kids in the projects?! And when she returned for the final season, no mention was ever made again of Carl! I know this is because Esther Rolle (Florida Evans) refused to return if Carl was so much as mentioned, and I know that James was killed off due to his conflicts with the writers, and there were a couple of good episodes after the death of James, but I'm taking the series in a different direction. I want to play with it and see what would've happened if certain events didn't happen, and others did.

I would love reviews, be it on the content or my style of writing, and would be happy to reciprocate. Thanks for reading my profile and I look forward to writing more for you as the mood strikes. :)
