Author has written 10 stories for Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sadly, I do not own the rights to the Hardy Boys. I have just borrowed them for a bit! :)

Most stories involve the guys and their girlfriends/wives (depending on the story) and friends. I'm a big time supporter of the classic pairings (Callie and Frank; Joe and Vanessa; and, when I delve into the Nancy Drew universe (infrequently at best), Nancy and Ned). However, I love well written stories and will read almost anything where I can feel the love that the authors put into crafting their characters. This is my only fandom.

I also enjoy receiving reviews on my stories (they are good for the soul) and giving thorough and appreciative reviews as well. Writing is truly a craft and a labor of love, and it's been my pleasure to both read amazing stories and to try my hand at the craft as well. There are many talented authors out there who inspire me often.

Regarding reviews, it is very frustrating for writers not to receive them. Stories takes months and sometimes a year or more to put together, and even a simple note can be enough motivation for a writer to continue. I always make it a point to leave reviews, even a simple one, to encourage people to keep going. Just like a smile or greeting can make a difference in a person's day, a comment on a story does the same. Please do leave a little note, on my stories or other stories by authors you enjoy, because it really does serve a purpose!

I write because I have stories to tell and because I realize that the more I write, the better these stories will be told. I have seen my own writing grow from when I first published here 15 years ago (!!!!)-- I am not the same author. It takes months and months-- sometimes more-- to write a story, and I'm happy to leave just a little part of myself behind in fiction-land. What a wonderful thing it is to express your ideas!

Thanks for reading! :)

I write on my own and as a pairing with Red Hardy (under our own names or the Sisterhood). Thus far, we have published "Choices of the Heart" (complete) and are in the midst of posting "Consequences"-- those stories go together. When we are done, we have started a separate universe of stories, starting with "The Path to Gratitude", followed by "Christmas Wishes." These will be followed by a story we are currently working on (I will update when we get that far). The latter three stories are not yet uploaded.

My stories are as follows:
