Author has written 20 stories for Walker, Texas Ranger, Harry Potter, and Necessary Roughness.

What can I say? I go by Ckorkows and am truly a creator. Writing is a passion for me and is something that I've excelled at since kindergarten. I am always open to constructive criticism and often appreciate an honest critique over admiration, although I won't say no to the latter. I grew up on Walker Texas Ranger and that is my primary fandom. I also dabble in the Necessary Roughness group and, most recently, in Harry Potter.

A little about myself. I am 24 years old and just purchased my first home with my long-term boyfriend. I have no degree but about five years of college under my belt so I think that counts for something. I dabble in the shooting sports and aspire to become a competitor one of these days. My hobbies include racquetball and writing, but extend to eccentricities such as home decor and home defense. Oh, and I have four dogs - three rescues and a foster.

In regards to my writing, wit and humor are just as important to me as making sure that with every chapter you read you feel that gut-twisting urgency for the plot (characters' love) to grow. I will most definitely draw out any romantic tension for as long as humanly possible before I let the characters proclaim their mutual attraction. I am much too romantic and really try to reign it in with these stories. I eventually want to write romance/suspense books for publishing (with original characters), and playing with pre-constructed characterization and building different romances is an important step in honing my skills.

I would like to note that I pride myself on grammar and spelling and if you notice a word that seems out of place or a phrase that just shouldn't be, please let me know that I passed over these errors. It irritates me, probably more than it does you, to know that I have made you stumble upon an awkward structure and thus have ruined the flow of my writing.

For the most part I plan on sticking to one shots/short fics. My multi-chapter fics tend to go on Hiatus - if you WTR fans haven't noticed - and I find that that is probably just as disappointing as a too-short fic that started good. For a completed work by me please check out my story 'The Rangers Book One: El Leon'. It is a fully flushed 15 chapter fic that will hopefully leave you wanting more...which, if you hadn't already noticed, is right where I want you. ;) I am currently working on finishing my Hiatus fics. I know where they are headed, I just can't seem to get them there. But I will, so please have patience.

In all sincerity, I wish you enjoy my use of the written word as much as I enjoy your turn of phrase. And please, comment, even if it's just to tell me that Walker kicks butt or that you are wearing nice shoes while you read my work, it lets me know that someone out there is reading what I write, and maybe even enjoying it.

Enjoy the Ride,

Ckorkows

After the Silence: A New Beginning by moviemom44 reviews
...because NOBODY was satisfied with the original ending of 'Without a Sound'. Am I right? This time Syd and Gage get it right, and almost get it on. Didn't want to resort to an 'M' rating. A one-shot that got so long it is presented in three parts.
