Author has written 38 stories for Moonlight, Invisible, and Beauty and the Beast.

I began with Moonlight fanfiction...so many stories to migrate...so little time.

I am not a lightening rod ... but I play one here.

If you are looking for professionally perfect prose...the door is behind you, bye-bye!


I write for fun, I write to not eat. I have approached 12 of the Betas who cover my fandoms without a return response, can't tell if they are active/too busy/don't like my stuff to comment.

So I write it...sit on it over night...read it, check it with Windows 7 Word Spell Check and put it out there.

I was originally on:

Moonlightline (Closed 2008)

MoonlightForever (ALL WORK REMOVED 9/11)

Moonlightfanfic (still there!)

Over 300 Moonlight stories are maintained on www dot moonlightfreshies dot com

Now I've expanded to The Invisible.

With life comes changes and my wading into Beauty and the Beast.

Hope you enjoy my work, if you do...won't you leave "footprints"?

Remember, Karma is a sweet, sweet reward.

I do want to say something about "GUEST" reviews.

If I know you from somewhere - please leave your nickname so I can thank you!

If you want to strike out at me with non-constructive, mean criticism AND you give me no way to know who you are then it is a reflection on YOU.

I value constructive criticism - If you want to help me and shed light on errors I cannot see...PM me and Let's talk!

I write because I 'have' to and hope people will read because they 'need' to.

For Nancy, who saw this song coming out of Mick's mouth. Of course, I saw the second song coming out of Josef's mouth… This is somewhere between What's Left Behind and Sonata, definitely AU… And did I mention….I own none of these characters, but if it wasn't for ME they wouldn't be doing this, right now. Thanks Trevor Munson for giving us a great set of toys.
