Author has written 37 stories for Dragonriders of Pern series, Moonlight, Quantum Leap, Dukes of Hazzard, Closer, Major Crimes, Paradise, 2012, NCIS, and Vampire Diaries.

Thanks for checking out my profile!

I've been writing something or other for almost as long as I've been able to write. Poetry, short stories, essays -- you name it. My husband is also a freelance writer, so we keep it in the family. :)

I've worked at a newspaper for over 20 years. In that time, I've written stories, features and book reviews, along with doing almost every job in the newsroom, including editing. It's not my "official" title, but I do it every day. I also do freelance writing and provide Internet content for Web sites.

My hubby and I share the house with our two cats. Well, I say they're "our" cats. They allow us to share the house with him. Both are rescues and keep me laughing every day.

I'm looking forward to seeing what other writers are doing on this site! Also, I welcome reviews of my work, and I thank all those who have taken the time to read it!

Oblivion by newsgirl83 reviews
It's been 4 years since she last saw his blue eyes, or so they say. 4 years since the coma-inducing tragedy that took her parents but let her live. Elena wakes up at 23, with no memory of the years leading up to her accident or the gorgeous man sitting beside her with a ring on his finger. Desperate for answers, Elena embarks on a not so typical amnesia-love story. 1st Person POV.

A woman in Tennessee encounters a handsome, blue-eyed young man who says he's from a future where women are dominant, men are submissive - and he's a government-owned prostitute. Much more in the author's note.

Party Like It's 1986 reviews

Elena Gilbert (early 30s) lives in Atlanta, owns an event planning company with her buddy Caroline. She also writes romance novels on the side, and has capitalized on the vampire romance genre craze.

Ordinary Loneliness reviews
Damon and a woman he's never met are abducted and thrown together for a "social experiment." But they find out they have more in common than they realize. Pre-TVD, so sort of AU. Very angsty.

Time of the Season reviews
Very AU. It's 2010 and Stefan is a vampire, but Damon? Missing (and human) since 1864. No one knows what happened, until Elena finds a blue-eyed man in the woods near the old Salvatore place. Where has he been for all these years?
