Author has written 39 stories for Closer, X-Files, and Major Crimes.

So much to say, so few characters in which to say them...I am a professional woman currently living in Boston, MA. There is my day job, and then there is my night job, which consists of writing fanfic, short stories and essays. In addition to Closer/Major Crimes fic, you will catch me shopping in the Buffy and X-files isles. I do so love strong, brilliant women who kick ass (and a little eye candy, such as Fritz Howard, does my soul good).

Like all closet writers, I crave feedback. It makes my day to know something I wrote made someone else happy. So don't hesitate to hit that Review button to put a smile on my face. Not that you have to be nice; I love constructive criticism. If something seems OOC, let me know, and I would love to discuss it with you. I enjoy hearing how readers interpret things in order to see if I got my point across, or need to work on it a bit. Feedback helps me grow as a writer.

As for personal information: I adore cats. I have the best husband in the world. My favorite color is orange. I really hate raisins. I am a raving left-winger--and left-hander. Snow is awesome. Sometimes I think chocolate is better than sex.
