Author has written 27 stories for Grey's Anatomy, and Rizzoli & Isles.

You know that internet meme, Socially Awkward Penguin? Yeah, that's my life in a nutshell. :)

I've been hooked on Rizzoli & Isles since the show started, and recently started writing fic for it after a several-year hiatus from writing a single Grey's Anatomy story. Rizzoli & Isles is seriously the only television show I watch. I prefer to spend my time doing other things, but I will knock over old people and drop kick babies in order to get to a television to watch R & I. Okay, maybe I won't actually do that, but just understand how far out of my way I go to watch that one show.

I love the subtext on that show, though I generally find the writers' refusal to actually delve into a serious relationship between Jane and Maura infinitely frustrating. I guess that's why I write fic though, so I can make the characters do all the things I wish I could see on my television screen.

I'm also addicted to fluff, so a lot of what I write has teeth-rotting sweetness included at no extra charge. Kindly keep that in mind in case your dental bills suddenly go up. :) I'm also a big fan of happy endings, and have yet to write anything that doesn't have my OTP ending up together. It may be predictable, but that's really the reason I write fic to begin with.
