Author has written 13 stories for Who's the Boss?, and Frozen.

Things I love: Cats, earl grey tea, reading, melted cheese on toast with tomato soup, chocolate, more chocolate and cappuccino. My kid's laughter, the magnificence of Fall foliage, and going for long walks in nature.

Things I hate: Winter. Driving in snow. Slipping on ice. People who lack imagination or don't read, religious fanaticism, sexism, stupidity, bad drivers and herring.

As to why I've chosen to write fanfic for Who's the Boss?, well all I can say is that when I was a young teen, I had plenty of ideas and they percolated in my brain for 2 decades. I might attempt other fandoms, but for now, I'm comfortable in this one and have enjoyed making fanfic friends, finding a forum to write in and spread my creative wings.

If you've enjoyed one of my stories (or more than one), please let me know about it! I write for the love of it, but I also crave feedback--every writer does. I like to know what works and what doesn't! Thank you.

Absolutely love these famous writer quotes:

“I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.”
Anne Frank

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
Ernest Hemingway

“Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.”
Virginia Woolf

Ok, I'd love to do it for money! Writing, that is!

Favourite books:

Jane Eyre (Grade nine English and I was hooked on literature after that)

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb(I've read this book at least four times now)

Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett (I highly recommend you read anything by this author)

The Josephine B. Trilogy by Sandra Gulland (an absolutely brilliant trilogy)

Clan of the Cave Bear, Jane Auel

Francine River's Mark of the Lion series

The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory (she is one of my all-time favourite authors)

and too many others to mention!

TV Shows I've enjoyed over the years:

Who's the Boss (from my childhood)

The Big Bang Theory (Bazinga!) Shenny shipper here

Castle

House

Game of Thrones (if only it wasn't so violent)

Frasier

Star Trek: The Next Generation

Eleventh Summer by amythis reviews
While Tony and Angela are off on a belated honeymoon, Jonathan helps Sam deal with Hank's abandonment. (Warning: if you're weirded out by step-sibling romance, which is perfectly understandable, you can skip every odd-numbered chapter after Chapter One and just concentrate on T & A fluff, smut, and a little drama.)
