Author has written 11 stories for House, M.D., Doctor Who, X-Files, Farscape, and White Collar.

Thanks for reading!

I am a 25-year-old combat librarian, specializing in feral book rehabilitation, reader search-and-rescue, and the control of crit-ticks and other biblioverous pests. As you might imagine, this challenging and dangerous profession leaves little time for leisure. However, in my spare moments, I enjoy writing, pleasure reading, making friends and mixing cocktails.

If you're looking for author's notes, see below.

If you enjoyed the writing, I hope you will take a few minutes to comment. I have anonymous comments enabled on all stories, so there is no need to be an FF member--or writer--to comment. Just click the "review" link at the end of any chapter. I prefer PMs for constructive criticism, but welcome your thoughts in any format. Thanks again for stopping by.

Regards,
Nelly

Notes from the "Intervals Trilogy"

T rating is for mature themes and some adult language.

"Ellipsis": The piece of art House references in Ch. 3 ("The long dark Phillies bar of the soul") is Edward Hopper's Nighthawks. Willy's definitions were adapted from . The sequence of events was heavily revised in 8/12 update. If you're interested in this story's journey through the editing process, the original "Ellipsis" is still available on the official House/Fox forum. Mayfield patient William Wick ("Willy") and night orderly Charmaine Smith-Shutesbury are original characters.

"Lacuna": The song playing in Wilson's car in Ch. 1 is "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" by Cage the Elephant (work warning: site plays music, has fun drawing game). He meditates on the Five Principles of Reiki. The paintings in Lowry's home/office (Ch. 3) are The Plain Tree by Henri Matisse and The Treachery of Images by Rene Magritte. From Ch. 6, here is the Cautionary Statement from the DSM-IV. House's psychiatrist Dr. Norman Lowry was invented for this story.

Something Important: In these three stories, the impact of mental illness is explored from three perspectives--intimate friends ("Hiatus"), patients ("Ellipsis") and doctors ("Lacuna"). I wrote these stories primarily to entertain, but a common theme in all of them is the importance of communication to mental health. Since nearly 1 out of 4 Americans face mental illness every year, all of us have had--or will have--the experience of being friends, caregivers and possibly patients. If you are suffering from mental health issues, or know someone who is, please tell someone. There are many people who want to listen to you (or your friend). If you don't know where to start, most states offer a 211 service you can call for help and guidance. Speak up!

Don't forget--House has a long history of supporting the National Alliance on Mental Illness, another great resource for patients & caregivers.
