Author has written 5 stories for NCIS.

Mostly I write original stories; fan fiction is still fairly new for me as a writing format. I find it not so easy!

I am currently a fan of NCIS and will likely concentrate any ff efforts there, as I feel I know the characters well. I confess to being a Tony fan. I watch more movies than tv, but do enjoy several of the cable networks' originals such as Psych, The Closer, Burn Notice and Eureka. I read quite a bit, in all genres. My favorite places include the Canadian Rockies, London, Portland (Oregon) and any place I can find to go caving. Currently (and may always be) addicted to narrow, creaky, long wooden footbridges and hot air balloon rides.

I welcome PMs, especially on writing (getting over blocks, comparing styles, methods, etc) and on NCIS matters. Be warned, I am not so very happy with the last half of season seven or the first half of season eight. But things are looking up lately...let's hope they can keep the upswing aloft.

Story updates: The preseries has begun. Whenever it's completed, the Obstructed View's sequel will begin. The Mounties will return in the sequel, promise!

Additional update Nov 2011: I have not given up on Fitting Pieces, largely thanks to the notes left by wonderful readers. I'm trying to get back on track, but am afraid to promise updates by any certain date.

A post-"Hiatus" exploration of how Tony and Jimmy might have become friends. Casefic with ensemble cast—minus Gibbs... kinda. He's remarkably present for being so very gone. Language and possible spoilers.

The Last Word by thelastcity reviews
McGee scoffed. He was in another one of those 'I know better than Tony' phases and not at all pleased to have been both taken down again and then corrected again by the man.

Fitting Pieces reviews
Preseries. Yeah, it's another fic dealing with how Gibbs met Tony in Baltimore. But come on. Don't you kinda love 'em? Some OCs, crazy action scenes, grumpy Gibbs and unreadable Tony. Eventually some Ducky, Abby, and, you know, an actual case.

Crackfic: Abby vs Jimmy : Fight! reviews
As a breather between more intense scenes in the longer two fics I'm working on, I was persuaded to try something silly. Sorta fits into OV, except for the crazy. Will you root for Abby, or Jimmy? It's a tough decision.
