Author has written 15 stories for Remington Steele.

I am an unabashed fan of the show Remington Steele.

Most of my family and friends know this and are amused by my affection for this twenty-five year old classic, even if they don’t entirely appreciate the hold it has over me. While my family shared an obsession with Gilmore Girls (the origin of my screen name,) Remington is all my own, my husband a default participant in my middle of the night screenings of Steele Threads, Steele Searching, or Grappling Steele – all favorites.

Shortly after rediscovering Remington Steele on DVD I stumbled on the internet RS community! AH! I was not alone in my devotion to this show! There had been fans of the show watching, writing letters to the show's stars, producers and the network that owned the show, and writing about the show ever since the program began airing! Despite having been a fan since the show aired in 1982, I was definitely a newbie to the RS community.

And beyond finding a community of fans I discovered a wealth of fan fiction that both carried Remington Steele forward beyond the shows that had been filmed and backwards into the character’s pasts. The presentations of Laura Holt and Remington Steele varied wildly in these computer depictions, but I read them all – devouring every single extension of the too few 90+ episodes. I was lost to my family for weeks. = )

The next step in Remington Steele’s new hold on my life took a little longer. Finally, through the easy access to Helen Wood’s Remington Steele site on Live Journal I wrote my own first Remington Steele story, Weather, in response to a challenge. My own ideas of where the characters might have gone next, moments that connected the episodes we had, and back-stories that brought Laura and Steele to the point we first met them, began to spin around my brain and fly onto my computer screen.

Gradually I began chatting with other members of the Remington Steele community. We are as diverse as the many characters Steele used as alias’ as he tumbled around the world on his way to meeting Laura, and finding his true identity with her, but it has been a joy to share our passion for this show, and these characters.

What is it that makes Remington Steele an enduring source of entertainment? From Judith Moose’s book Steele Loved After All These Years we learn that Robert Butler came up with the concept of a female private investigator, a woman who copes in a male dominated industry by putting one over the “sexist dogs,” succeeding as a female PI behind the cover of a nonexistent male superior. As a woman, I appreciate Mr. Butler’s vision of that strong woman, Laura Holt. Michael Gleason added the idea of the gorgeous conman “showing up” to assume the role of Remington Steele, driving Laura Holt crazy even as he charmed his way into her life. As a woman, I appreciate Michael Gleason’s vision of the romance and fun of adding Remington Steele! To all those who together found, settled on, and convinced Stephanie Zimbalist, Pierce Brosnan and the rest to sign on for the show, my profound thanks. The perfect charm, grace and chemistry of the RS cast combined with the humor and romance of the writers talents to make Remington Steele the enduring classic it was and remains.

Remington Steele came back into my life at a time when I needed a pleasant distraction from life’s reality. As that time of crisis has passed, Remington Steele, and its community have become treasured friends I enjoy spending time with. I have posted several stories on this site. What fun to know they have been read! Thanks for the positive feedback, and for taking time to visit.

Oh - the morning glory? My favorite flower. I could go on longer about finding in it the perfect metaphor for much of life, including RS; suffice it to say, does the beautiful blue remind anyone of a pair of breathtaking blue eyes? Need I say more?

All good things by kimmiesjoy reviews
Post Cops and Robbers. Maybe it was his Mother sitting next to him on the cold Bank floor, it could be the knowledge that his daughter was waiting outside the entire time. Somehow he thinks it's more to do with the woman curled up on his couch like she belongs there...

Silver Steele reviews
This is an old story, written to celebrate the silver anniversary of RSs first episode in 1982. Yesterday would have been Madeline Gilbert's birthday, had she not been taken from us far too young, before completing her marvelous tale, Dopple Steele. She had read this story. While she admitted she did not see our beloved duos lives evolving in this way, she encouraged as always.

April 19 was Madeleine Gilbert's birthday. To celebrate, and in memory of her, I am publishing a story to hopefully in some small way honor her, giving nod to her superior talents. For you, MG.

Through Laura's Eyes reviews
I have long wanted to explore Laura's relationship with Wilson, as alluded to in my story, Laura,A Look,... Wilson is a sympathetic figure: otherwise Laura wouldn't have loved him. What evolved between them; how would a woman as strong as Laura deal?

It's A Wonderful Steele reviews
This story follows ‘Steele on the High Road,’ and was first posted by this author in 2008. During the series Steele and Laura spent as much time sparring as sparking and it's that quality that I sought to reproduce. Besides, it's a good day for a sail.

Steele on the High Road reviews
Oh, ho," Steele shot daggers at his fuming partner. "I see. So we're back to that again, are we, Laura? I mean, aren't you tired of all these old STORIES ? Or is it the settings that make them different?"

Out to the ballgame for Steele's further initiation into a game as American as apple pie. Slightly worn story for a brand new month!

Steele Bunnies reviews
It is my goal that these characters embody the best of those created for the television series Remington Steele. Any resemblance to actual people and places is entirely unintentional.

Not the Dark Prince, but Mildred's caught up in romance again...published elsewhere. Characters are not mine, but I sure have fun with them!

Will You Be My Steele? reviews
A postscript to Suburban Steele, as the calendar suggests the days following that story might have transpired. I would be remiss if I failed to thank Debra for her help in polishing my story into it's slightly more finished state. Don't own the characters

Steeley Blues reviews
Laura is a gifted detective, confident in her ability to out think, outrun and out-maneuver criminals. Somehow she has less faith in herself when it comes to dealing with the men she cares about…

Laura, A Link, A Look, A Leap of Faith
You can research the issue, analyze it's points and make little lists, but in the end many decisions end up being a simple leap of faith. Mr. Steele slid sideways into Laura's life and heart. What other changes in Laura's life happened in this way?

Laura's Theme reviews
There hasn't been much happening here at Remington Steele FanFiction for awhile, so even though this story has already been read by some, it hasn't been archived here, and perhaps will jump start some other newer RS fiction. Obviously have no rights to

A season five continuation. Following their return from Ireland, Mildred works alongside Laura and Steele to help them redefine the parameters of their partnership. Can't seem to manage the spacing between sections...many thanks to Debra for editing!
