Author has written 32 stories for Closer, and Major Crimes.

I've been writing ever since I can remember. Some years ago I found this wonderful website and I've finally found the courage to upload some of my work. I am ever so curious to hear what you think!

Like everyone else here, I don't own any of the characters that seem familiar to you. I'm just borrowing them for a while promising to return them in good condition (and maybe just a little happier). Okay, I wrote that a wile ago and I apologise for the angst that has since crept into my stories :-) !

Most of my cover images are courtesy of the wonderful people at .

Some of my season 3 episode tags have a continuing storyline, and while they can be read individually, they're probably more fun to read in the correct order - especially if you like Shandy.

  1. Anger, Hurt and Disappointment 3x13
  2. Making Amends 3x13
  3. Letter in a Box 3x14 3x15
  4. Good Things Come to Those Who Wait 3x16

Update: Go check out Shannon likes the Sun, a joint writing project with Miss Shannon!

Promises and Pain by ProfTweety reviews
Tag 3.17: It had taken them three times to get to this point, this place where they now were. It had taken anger, harsh words, whispers and caresses. It had taken tears together and separately for them to reach their final understanding of what they were. More than friends, so much more, lovers in fact, but it had taken them three times to get that settled between them.

Try to Love Again by Kadi219 reviews
Raydor/Flynn - This began as an episode addition to 3x09 "Sweet Revenge" and grew beyond that. I've also included mention of 3x10 "Zoo Story", so there are possible spoilers within. Relationships don't happen in vacuum, and sometimes all you need a chance to get it right, even if it's the second chance.

Ricky reviews
Set after 'Red Tape': Andy runs into a teenager outside of Parker Center who bears a striking resemblance to his nephew Mario and introduces himself as Ricky Raydor. My headcanon on why Ricky looks nothing like Jack and why he and Andy seemed to know each other so well in Sweet Revenge. / new chapter 'Hormonal Confusion' posted January 28th

Waiting reviews
'Andy suffers an injury while pursuing a suspect that will become more and more serious as the season goes on. As a result, things get much more serious on the relationship front as well.' This is my take on that particular spoiler - told through a series of drabbles. It's a bit of an experiment, so do let me know what you think!

Winter Holidays reviews
"Help!" Her boy's voice rang out over the mountain. "Help! Sharon, shit!" Maybe this hadn't been such a good idea. Although it had sounded like a perfect idea to start with. The family was meeting in Park City like every year and this year, for the very first time, she was going to join them with Rusty - and she was going to teach him to ski. So much for the plan.

Silent Vigil reviews
Sharon sighs and looks at the man asleep now in her son's bed. She does realise that these are her motherly instincts talking rather than her womanly ones. Caring comes to her easily, taking care of the lost, the injured ... but there is something new now, the woman in her slowly waking up to a new love. / Missing scene from 4x11: the evening before breakfast

Old-fashioned Surprises reviews
'The first big surprise came when she actually agreed to date me. The conditions she put were also rather surprising. But what choice did I have? I had fallen in love with her slowly, bit by bit, until I was so deeply engaged, there was no way I could have ever turned away from her.' Andy gives us a glimpse into what dating Sharon the old-fashioned way really feels like.
