Introduction

A few things about me, I'm OLD!! I'm English - hence the spelling - I do try to get the US idiom and terminolgy correct e.g. elevator instead of lift, trunk instead of boot, so if I get something wrong please tell me. I write NCIS, mostly about Tim, but not exclusively - I don't always write 'ships, but if I do it's most likely to be Mcabby, but there are exceptions...

I have been writing fanfic since 2008 - I originally posted my stories on NFA because the only internet access I had was on Public Library machines which for some reason blocked ff.net! I now have internet access at home so I'm able to access ffnet whenever I like, however, the muse is often fickle these days it's my age I think) so I don't get as many ideas as I used to, and if I do post a multi-chapter story updates are likely to come slowly.

Should you have anything to say about my stories, I'm always happy to get feedback (good or bad), but please, as a courtesy, if you have any problems with what I write be good enough to sign your review so that I can respond. That's about it, I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed writing...
