I'm a lover of books and a good story. I started entertaining my friends with written stories as a youngster and have never quite shaken the habit.
I've written stories about Perry Mason and Dark Shadows. I also have an 'acquired taste' for Detective Robert Goren of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Perry Mason Fans: For those Perry Mason fans who have enjoyed ESG's books you will recall a very handy feature he used to keep track of his many characters-- the cast of characters located at the front of the book. I've decided since I love creating characters that I should have used this feature at the beginning of my stories. Hind sight is always twenty twenty. Therefore, I've decided to place the characters here and will make reference to the profile list in the event a character refresher might be necessary.

I'm hoping this will help. Please let me know if you would like characters added. And I'm sorry for the delay on Quid pro quo. Real life can step in and make writing virtually impossible. Thanks for your support and patience.
My special thanks to all who have taken the time to read my stories. I also want to thank those of you who so kindly wrote reviews. Thank you all for your encouragement!
