Author has written 7 stories for Gilmore Girls, and Janet Evanovich.

I'm a thirty-something living in Colorado, USA. I'm a consultant by day, reader by night. Introvert all the time. I come with an obstinate toddler (is there any other kind?), a neurotic dog, and a saint of a husband.

I grew up with fanfic. During breaks between middle school classes, I could be found scribbling stories in a notebook. Back then it was mostly Protector of the Small (Tamora Pierce) or Harry Potter. Fanfic and I had some years apart, and I came back to it when I was struck hard with Twilight fever. So I spent some time in the Twilight fandom (pretty much only BxE, AU/AH) before migrating briefly to the Gilmore Girls fandom (Trory all the way!). After some more years away, I just recently found my way to the Stephanie Plum fandom. I'm obsessed with Plum stories at the moment - I'm mostly a Babe, but I also definitely enjoy a Tart story now and then! (Once I learned what the heck Tart even meant - who can tell me where that came from?? Was it some sort of carryover from when we referred to smut as "lemons"?)

I've always been an avid reader, and I have an obsessive personality - I love reading series, because once I fall in love with the characters of a story, I just want more! Enter fanfic. I love the creativity of authors in these communities, and the ability to see the characters we've all come to know and love go on new adventures, face new trials & tribulations, and of course experience countless Happily Ever Afters.

Please know that I love interacting with other readers/writers in these communities. I sincerely appreciate every single Review, PM, Favorite, or Follow. Don't ever hesitate to send me a message if you have feedback on my stories or constructive criticism to help me make my writing better. I write for myself and because I enjoy it, but I also love the interactivity that fanfiction provides. I also love reading and talking about YOUR wonderful stories! I may blow up your review inbox. :-)

Thanks for reading!

Les is More by Roscommon reviews
A one-shot in which Tank is having a very Lester Santos day, with a dash of mayhem from other folks to make his experience truly complete. It's a mixed blessing that Ranger is otherwise occupied in the gun range with Stephanie.

Sometimes the best advice comes from the most innocent among us. A short conversation with her niece leads Steph to question her relationships with both men in her life. With a little help from Grandma, maybe Steph and Ranger can finally figure things out. Rated M for a little bit of language and a tiny bit of smut. Always a Babe!

Disguise The Limit by sonomom reviews
It was a bad idea from the beginning, and somewhere deep inside I knew it. The commonsense part of me warred briefly with the unquenchable need to know. Curiosity won. Curiosity killed the cat, and I had an uneasy feeling it might kill me...
