Author has written 32 stories for Adam-12, Route 66, Emergency, Twister, Public Enemies, and Gone with the Wind.
UPDATE: New Emergency! story posted here. It's a Chet Kelly story and the premise comes from some of my stories I wrote way back in the day. Like way, way back. Like when I was still in high school. I decided the premise worked well for Chet, so I'm tweaking them and posting them. It's open-ended with no set amount of chapters or finish date, and since it's humor/parody, it gives the muse and me a break now and then from the darker fics I'm working on.
Louie also dived back into the Adam-12 fandom after a four year absence, working on a new story that can be found here. It's a Jean Reed story...not sure how many fans there are of Jean, but it's an interesting fic to explore.
I'm also still working on the Brice story as well. I'd hoped to have an update to it before its one-year anniversary on the site, but RL and the muse conspired to work against that goal. So please be patient with me on that one. As I've said before, it's a seriously complex plot with a seriously complex lead character, so it takes some serious time and effort to keep all the little plot threads neatly tied. Seriously. ;P I'm hoping that by kicking Louie's ass loose to work on the OTHER two fics, that'll help ease off some of the stress of writing THIS fic.
Regarding the issue in the Adam-12 fandom: I wanted to take a moment to offer a belated thank you to all the readers who contacted me either via review or PM to let me know that they thought the final confrontation scene in another person's recent Adam-12 "Charlie Burnside gets revenge against Pete and Jim" story sounded very similar to both the final confrontation scene in my "Ordinary Day" story and from my "Dark Side" story. Although I chose not to let all the reviews post, I appreciated the time and effort several of you took in regards to the matter, including those who noted the very specific details they felt came from my work. All I will say on the case is that I have had it investigated by the anti-plagiarism forum on here and received some very beneficial advice on how next to proceed should I decide to take the matter further. Again, thank you to everyone who let me know about this, I appreciate it.
I received a review from a reader who was worried that the issue was going to discourage me from writing for the Adam-12 fandom and I just want to assure readers that I am NOT leaving that fandom. I fully intend to keep writing for the show as long as the muse is willing to come up with stories for Pete and Jim and crew. And judging by the many, many ideas he's got in the pipeline, I'll be sticking around for a long, long time.
(revamped profile, going with a shorter one for now)
I've been a writer for over thirty years now and it is one of my biggest passions. I love the creative challenge it provides, plus it offers a nice escape from the stress of real life and the chronic health issues I face every day. My muse really is a giant guinea pig named Louie St. Louis and sometimes he can get on a roll and other times he's as slow as molasses in January. I sometimes look back on my earlier stories and cringe at some of the goofs I made in them, so anymore it takes me a looooooooong time to get anything posted because I want to ensure what I'm writing is up to my extremely picky standards.
Thank you to everyone who has read, reviewed, or favorited my stories, I appreciate it!

"Don't ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance, or my kindness for weakness." —Anonymous
"Sometimes 'the majority' only means all the fools are on the same side."—Anonymous
"A good story cannot be devised; it has to be distilled. I always regard the first draft as raw material. What seems to be alive in it is what belongs in the story." —Raymond Chandler, from a 1950s letter to a friend
"I don't know, I'm making this up as I go." —Indiana Jones, Raiders of the Lost Ark, 1981
"The thing about a story is that you dream it as you tell it, hoping that others might then dream along with you, and in this way memory and imagination and language combine to make spirits in the head. There is the illusion of aliveness." -Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried, 1990
"My dear, I don't give a damn." —Rhett Butler from Margaret Mitchell's 1936 novel Gone With the Wind
"But down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be a man of honor–by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world. He has a sense of character, or he would not know his job. He is a lonely man and his pride is that you will treat him as a proud man or be very sorry you ever saw him. He has a range of awareness that startles you, but it belongs to him by right, because it belongs to the world he lives in. If there were enough like him, the world would be a very safe place to live in, without becoming too dull to be worth living in. The story is this man's adventure in search of a hidden truth, and it would be no adventure if it did not happen to a man fit for adventure."—Raymond Chandler, The Simple Art of Murder, 1934
"He felt like somebody had taken the lid off life and let him see the works."—Dashiell Hammett, The Maltese Falcon, 1929
"Nick Yanov stared at the sleeping ducks in the peaceful pond and said, 'They were just policemen. Rather ordinary young guys, I thought. Maybe a little lonelier than some. Maybe they banded together when they were especially lonely. Or scared.' [Yanov] looked up at the brooding darkness, at the tarnished misty moon. There were no stars. Not even the great star could pierce that black sky. Nick Yanov stood where they had put their blankets down, close enough to the water to pretend they were with nature, here in the bowels of the violent city. He felt some light mocking rain, yet longed to stay here in the solitude, while dead leaves scraped at his feet like perishing brown parchment. Then he flipped the cigarette into the pond and heard the hiss and watched it float. He was immediately sorry he did it. Yet there was other debris on the still water and in the bushes if one used the moonlight to look closely. He didn't want to look closely. He preferred to think it was lovely and clean and pastoral here by the silent lagoon and the slumbering ducks in the icy water. Where the choirboys frolicked in the duck shit."—Joseph Wambaugh, The Choirboys, 1975
"Time takes it all, whether you want it to or not Time takes it all, bears it away, and in the end there is only darkness. Sometimes we find others in that darkness, and sometimes we lose them there again. I think about all of us. Walking our own Green Mile, each in our own time." —Stephen King, The Green Mile, 1996
"You have to dream intentionally. Most people dream a dream when they are asleep. But to be a writer, you have to dream while you are awake, intentionally." —Haruki Murakami
OTHER SITES I AM ON: (sorry, hyperlinks aren't working and neither are cut and paste links, except for the one to Fictionpress...hmm, doesn't FFnet want users to be able to access other fanfiction sites besides this one?)
I'm on Archive of Our Own (AO3) and Squidge/WWOMB under the pen name Bamboozlepig. Unaltered versions of my stories are posted on those two sites, including those with MA content or song lyrics.
I'm on Fictionpress under the name Bamboozlepig. I've got essays posted there.
I'm on a site dedicated to Jack Webb's shows called The Mark VII Fanfiction Realm. Again, pen name is Bamboozlepig.
I have a tumblr blog called "The Crazy World of Bamboozlepig". Haven't updated on it in a long time, but will eventually post some pictures that will go to the Breathe fic.
Hopefully whatever the frick is going on with the links will be fixed and I can post the direct hyperlinks to the above sites once more.
