Author has written 39 stories for Mentalist.

I’m a married mom with four fabulous kids. It's been the wildest ride of my life—and I’m a roller coaster nut.

I love good television and good movies and good books and am perfectly capable of becoming completely immersed in all three. I like fanfiction because I can read about my favorite tv & movie characters in a wide spectrum of different stories. And, reading and writing it is great therapy.

My tv favorites are Chuck, Castle (also a forever-Firefly fan), NCIS (I'm in it for the Harmon.), Warehouse 13, Tin Man, Human Target, Bones and The Mentalist.

I love action films that grab me by the throat, movie classics to wile away a rainy afternoon, smart chick flicks that steal my breath away one minute and make me laugh like a happy drunk the next, and any film that can leave me asking questions and thinking through the characters and events for days after.

I don't have a favorite author; my tastes are eclectic as long as the writing is strong and fluid and the story is intriguing. I believe to write well one must read well.

My favorite quote: “All who wander are not lost.” -J.R.R. Tolkien

Here’s to the wandering!
