Author has written 20 stories for CSI: New York, Criminal Minds, CSI: Miami, and JAG.

Hi everybody.

I'm a 3-year Army Veteran from coastal North Carolina, married to a retired JAG sergeant for 27 wonderful years. We have recently moved to St Louis to be near family.

You old-timers remember me as Jag Lady. Named myself after my husband's job in the army, not the TV show. Well, some horrible things happened in 2009 that made me abandon that name and my account altogether. My husband was laid off from his civilian job 1 week before I was scheduled for major surgery. We in the JAG Corps usually looked out for each other, but when this happened, our friends and network just kind of blew us off and left us to fend for ourselves. I was so furious I deleted every account I had from the internet that had that username. I was flattered to find out that as Jag Lady I had fans. Unfortunately that was one of many casualties of making a new start. Tarheelveteran is the best name I could come up with, being from North Carolina and a veteran.

My loves are reading, writing, and amateur photography, I have also volunteered for a cat rescue shelter. I've made YouTube videos to show the cats who were up for adoption. Unfortunately I had to delete that account as I'm no longer there.

I've recently gone into business for myself. I now own Veteran Office Support Services, an off-site administrative/paralegal service. We haven't turned much of a profit yet, but we're doing a whole lot of changes which should make it better. I'm also adding a side business that assists families who are caring for aging parents or special needs children. People seem to be so wanting of these services that they haven't bothered to wait until that business is set up. No new clients yet, but at least I know there will be a huge market with almost no competition.

I like all of the CSI franchise, though I use Miami and New York in my fics. When Miami was cancelled I was saddened but not surprised. After the overdone Eric/Calleigh romance and Time Bomb, the series had outlived its usefulness in my opinion. Personally I think S-1 to S-3 are the show's glory years. I have S1-S4 of Miami on dvd and find myself going back to watch them for more inspiration.

I also like Criminal Minds. David Rossi is my favorite, but I really like Morgan/Garcia. Those two are just so cute together.

By popular demand, I have brought back my Ryan/Emmie series. You will notice that some stories in the series have been left out. The ones I brought back are as follows:

Ryan/Emmie Series:
More Than Just Words (Done)
A Monster's Ball (CSI Miami/JAG crossover) (Done)
Our Little Secret (Done)
Talladega Nightmares (CSI Miami/Criminal Minds crossover) (Done. FINALLY!!) I've decided to skip A Big, Beautiful Murder, since I didn't like it very much. Talladega Nightmares was originally a T, but I've brought it back as an M for graphic crime scenes.
Scattered Flowers (Have not begun yet) Japanese businessmen at a convention are being murdered. The Miami/Dade Crime Lab suspect the Mala Noche is involved. Meanwhile, an old woman close to Horatio carries the scars of a deep, terrifying secret. Based on The Rape of Nanking--The Forgotten Genocide by the late Iris Chang. (Read this book ONLY if you have a strong stomach)
The Rock Star Treatment (have not begun yet) Emmie's favorite rock star is killed in an explosion. Dan Cooper will suffer life-threatening injuries. Can he come back?

Other CSI Miami Stories:

Horatio/Yelina:
More Than a Woman (done)
Mrs. Johannsen (done)

Rick-centric:
The Littlest IAB (done)
Stealing Thunder (CSI Miami/JAG crossover) (Done. Did some major reworking. Hint: Horatio will get what he deserved)
Computer Calls (Done. Ran out of ideas. Sorry)

Ryan/Natalia
Can You Dig It? (AU) It's the Cultural Revolution of the late 1960's. Ryan is a gentle hippie who falls in love with Natalia, an Establishment girl whose father is fighting in the Vietnam War. Both learn too much about their backgrounds as well as the time they live in, but then Ryan becomes a hero when he is selected for an undercover sting. (Not started yet). Chock full of racism, sexism and bare-knuckle politics, but that's how it was back then. WARNING: Character Death!

Criminal Minds Fics (so far)
The Truth About Dogs and Cats (In progress. Seriously thinking of bringing this back as another Miami/Criminal Minds Crossover. Seems to be the best way I can make it work)
So This is Christmas? (Done)
But Was It a Candy Bar? (Done)
Dave Rossi's Rubber Duckie (Not started yet)

CSI New York:
Scents and Sensibility (done)
Adam and the Holy Grail (done)
CSI NY/Ghostbusters crossover (haven't thought up a good title yet). There's something strange in the NY lab. Who they gonna call?

Attention all flamers: I'm a Southern Christian Conservative. I take plenty of crap just by standing up for my beliefs. Save your breath.
