Author has written 6 stories for Ashes to Ashes.

Hey up.

I'm in my mid-thirties, married with a toddler and a baby.

Oh and I really like Ashes to Ashes. I've started writing stories to cope with the interminable break before the second series screens (no judgement, BBC). It's GALEXY stuff and not exactly serious - Gene's still mildly skeezy and Alex is a fruitcake - hope you like it. I'm keeping the endings open in case I write more and follow on from current stories.

Please give me reviews - good or bad. I write press releases for a living so I'm used to people telling me I need some editing :)

I was nine in 1981 so A2A is showing me all the fantastic music I missed out because I was listening to this kind of thing in the 1980s. Don't judge me.

Here's the recipe for Trout Orleans that Gene misses out on in my second story. It looks pretty special. Once I stockpile enough weapons-grade butter, I'm going to cook it for my husband, make martinis and listen to some R&B on the couch. I wish he could click his fingers to the groove like Evan. :)

The six stories all make up a series set after the end of series 1; they're connected so I recommend you read them in order or they don't make much sense. They were written before series 2. The order of the stories is:

London Fields

Playing with the Big Boys

And If I Start a Commotion

In Paradise

Walk Into the Twilight

Transferred out of CID, Alex has nothing better to do than follow the trail of Artemis. GALEX: follows on from If I Start a Commotion doesn't make a whole lot of sense if you haven't read the series. As always, love your honest feedback.
