Author has written 54 stories for Torchwood.

I'm flattered that you are looking to find out who I am; thank you. My name is... well, that's not important. What is oddly important is Torchwood. I'm old enough to know better but I've accidentally got hooked. Didn't mean to, didn't particularly want to - but it happened. I blame it on John Barrowman!

I'm glad folks seem to be enjoying my stories; I love writing them. I hadn't realised how addictive it is to write for Ianto, Owen and Jack.

I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who takes time to read and review; it really is important to know what sort of things people like to read if one wants to serve up stories people will enjoy. So, highlighting a favourite line, moment, motion, pairing, friendship - it all helps!

Short Stories by Helen Pattskyn reviews
A collection of mostly "short" stories that I'll post as the Muses hit. All Jack/Ianto. Mostly fluff, but some serious: hurt/comfort, romance. Most rated T. Some chapters more mature themed: smut or violence, not too graphic. Later chapters AU.

Gone but not Forgotten by SerenityJane reviews
