Author has written 51 stories for X-Files, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Numb3rs, Supernatural, and Castle.

A native of the Midwest, I completed my Ph.D. in geography a few years ago and after a stint in Southern California, am now back close to home.

I got started in fanfic years ago writing missing scenes for X-Files. Then I rediscovered a childhood favorite, Scarecrow and Mrs. King. Then I became a rabid NUMB3RS fan and expanded to writing novel-length stories. My latest obsession is the pretty, pretty men of Supernatural. In my precious little spare time remaining, I like to quilt (my other obsession).
