Author has written 3 stories for CSI, and Castle.

Hey there! Not tall, not thin, pepper and silver (and very, very curley) -haired, brown-eyed woman in Virginia, USA, here. I have the same birthday as the fictional Catherine Willows, and a day later than the actual Nathan Fillion. Now go be good CSI's and figure it out, LOL! I live in a rural area of Northern Virginia, have a cat, 1 sandy-haired blue-eyed, dimpled, and extremely cute husband, and no kids.

I used to enjoy Castle & CSI (uh, duh?!), Bones, Pushing Daisys (all are sorely missed. Sigh..). Still love NCIS, and the LA, and New Orleans versions, too. I adore all the educational stuff, History & History Int'l, TLC, Discovery, Nat Geo, WETA, stupid ghost programs, etc... I read 6-10 books a week, mysteries, histories, biographies, outstanding fiction. I am a passionate collector of Coca Cola memorabilia, but that's kind of on hold with the current economy. (Mortgage first, and all that, LOL) Creating miniature shadowboxes is a lot less expensive, and hugely fun.

I was born in Dublin, Ireland and yeah, I look really Irish, right down to being the whitest, pale white girl on the planet. I do not go out tanning! My husband and I own and operate our own small mobile welding company. It used to be a whole lot bigger, but with the construction business going south with the economy, we had to close our shop. Now, I take care of the paperwork and Dan goes and fixes things. He also does some amazing sculpting and metal artwork. I used to be in the legal field, doing Trust & Estate work, Guardianships, Conservatorships, all tax returns involved, etc.. Basically, I took an Estate from its beginning until it was discharged from the Probate Court. Most people would find it to be a tedious job, but me, I enjoyed it. I am currently a Certified Personal Care Assistant, which means I care for the elderly, many with disabilities or have been sadly burdened with the ills of Alzheimer's and other dementia. It's sometimes very sad, but also very, very rewarding.

I used to write with my partner, the very talented Prairie24, and I've written about 5 fics on my own. If you would like to read our older stories, you can find them under Moochiecat2009andPrairie24, no spaces. Enjoy!
