Author has written 11 stories for Castle, Rizzoli & Isles, and Community.

Defender of semicolons by day. Ninja by night. That doesn't leave me a lot of time for writing, so mostly I just lurk in dark corners of the interwebs and read what other people write. I'm interested in accurate character voices, good grammar and word choices, minimalism, and long walks on the beach.

I cross-post my stories at and and am on Twitter as @NinjaLurkerDHS. Feel free to friend/follow me.

Update, March 2011:

I've been inactive lately due to real life and a muse who's MIA. I still think about fic* but am too lazy to write, generally. Recently my chat group prodded me into writing a chapter; look for "Second Anniversary" under our collective author-name, "D.F. Twinkie."

* Yes, Team Castle included; Kate and Rick are still stuck in kitchen limbo for now.

The Same RIver Twice by Rhyolight04 reviews
Yet another take on the events of "A Deadly Game." Spoilers for "Boom", "Food to Die For." Probably not the same universe as Trebuchet and the rest, but maybe. I don't own Castle's characters; if I did, do you think they would they be in this pickle?
