Author has written 49 stories for House, M.D., Castle, Hart to Hart, Downton Abbey, Sons of Anarchy, Alias, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Doctor Blake Mysteries, and Murdoch Mysteries.

June 2019 - I'm *thismany* years old.

I don't write very often because I'm lazy. Usually the story I want to read is already out there and finding it is easier than writing my own. That way, I only have to write when I can't find what I'm looking for and that is (blessedly) rare.

So far I've written for House MD (but we broke up), Castle (we hardcore broke up) Hart to Hart (we've been together since I was in junior high. i think we'd be common-law by now), Downton Abbey (Robert/Cora), Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (Phryne/Jack), The Doctor Blake Mysteries (Lucien/Jean of course) and now Murdoch Mysteries (Julia/William). I also read X-Files fic like it's my J-O-B. If you're old enough to remember Chronicle X...*hat tip*

I like smartasses, sexy older married couples, doodling (oops, I mean zentangling), and my dogs. My furry four-legged children are Ocho (my gentle soul of a Briard, with easily hurt feelings and a sassy mouth), Kismet (a dizzy, crazy, crack-headed standard poodle), Josephine (the Briard matriarch) and Noodle (a 1 y/o Briard, son of Josephine and absolute pain in my ass.)

Non-fanfictionally: JD Robb's "In Death", Frederick Bachman, Neil Gaiman, anything and everything about Napoleon and Josephine, and autobiographies of Golden Age silver screen actresses.

I'm a classic silver screen junkie and gold medalist in binge-watching shows on streaming services.

Born and raised in a suburb of Los Angeles I'm now a redneck in Arkansas raising my dogs and reading/writing stories about my shows.
