Author has written 32 stories for Adam-12, Route 66, Emergency, Twister, Public Enemies, and Gone with the Wind.
UPDATE, 1/23/16: I found out that an essay writing site in the UK had my "Angel's Miracle" fic submitted to their site by a "student". I have never given permission for my work to be submitted to this site and it's appalling to think that someone ripped off my story, word for word, and gave it to this site to be published. I have contacted the essay site and asked that my story be removed from their collection, informing them that whoever submitted it plagiarised from me and submitted illegally gained content to their site (which promises originality in whatever essays you purchase from them). The link to the site is www [dot] UKEssays [dot] com. The link to the content in question is: www [dot] ukessays [dot] com [backslash] essays [backslash] english-literature [backslash] its-a-wonderful-life-english-literature-essay [dot] php
UPDATE, 1/25/16: The UK Essay site has since removed the story that was plagiarised from me and submitted to their site. I have emailed them to thank them for removing it and I've urged them to investigate the person who submitted it because obviously that person has no scruples and is willing to not only boldly steal and pass off someone else's work as their own, but they're also willing to submit it to a site under the guise that it is an original essay. Had that site tried to sell my story as an original essay, they and the person who submitted it could've been sued because they would've been violating the copyright held by Universal/MarkVII since the story clearly was a fanfiction piece and NOT an essay.
Anyone tempted to plagiarise from me should be forewarned that I run all of my stories and essays through a couple of different plagiarism checkers on a regular basis. I'm urging all writers to also consider doing the same for their stories, just to make sure no unscrupulous, talentless asshole is trying to steal their hard work.
Thank you to everyone who has read, reviewed, or favorited my stories, I appreciate it!
For now I'm stripping my profile back to basics and I'm not including anything about myself on here.
Please note that I don't do beta work, I don't accept story requests, and I don't co-author with anyone.
As to the two unfinished stories "In the Aftermath of Hell" and "Courage Under Fire", I have no guarantee that the muse will ever get back to them to finish them. However, due to issues I will not go into, I cannot remove those two stories from any of the sites they're posted on. I also do NOT give permission for anyone else to try to finish those stories for me and I ask for that to please be respected.
The Jean Reed fic, the Chet fic and the Brice fic I try to work on whenever I can. Unfortunately, a lot of my free time anymore is eaten up with real life obligations, plus my chronic health issues can often interfere with the muse's creative energies. I've come to accept those things are beyond my control and all I can do is roll with them. I do wish I could recapture the muse's energy that was so active when I first started back at writing stories seven years ago, but time changes everything, including that. I'm not sharing this for sympathy, I'm sharing this so people will hopefully understand the reason behind my glacially slow posting pace.

"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
