Author has written 7 stories for Criminal Minds, and White Collar.

Update 11/8/11: Slacker! Slacker! Slacker! *sigh* I know, I need to write again. Internship is done and I officially graduate tomorrow. Hope to get the writing bug exercised again. Please bare with me. It always comes back, I just never know when.

Hi,

Wow, this is a lot of blank space. Filling this could be daunting. Let's see, what do people care to know about me? Probably not the boring stuff, like, "I have 2 cats and just broke up with my boyfriend". What's interesting? Likes and dislikes? Not really, unless they're really amazing, like hang gliding or deep sea diving (both would be dislikes for me). I'm a decent juggler and a horrible speller. I love to write and hate anything right wing. I do live in Colorado, and no, I don't ski. I'd rather ride my motorcycle any day of the week than go to the gym. I love the sound of the waterfall in my back yard, and hate the sounds people make when they eat. I work full-time for the devil and am almost done with grad school. I volunteer once a month, and spank naughty (adult) boys and girls in need of discipline whenever I get the chance. Sad that my life fits so neatly in such a tiny space, but there you have it.

Hey! Here's a thought (because I'm feeling uncharacterisically bitchy today): If you favorite a story, drop a little note to the author telling her/him what you liked about it. (rant over -- there! That wasn't so bad. Was it?)

All time favorite CM quote (of course it's from Elephant's Memory)

Hotch: "All teenagers profile as sociopaths. There's a reason you can't diagnose them until they're 18."

YEEK! Grad school HARD! Must focus! Eye on the prize!

. . . .Want to write F.F.!. . .

NO! Must write research papers! Graduate! Get better job!

. . . But . . .

NO! School work first! F.F. later!

. . . Being a grown-up sucks!!! . . .

Thought I might spend a little time laying out the things that annoy me when I read FF:

1) Pluralizing words that should never be pluralized (it's "anyway"! "Anyways" isn't even a word!).

2) Another one that's not a word: "Proly" WTH??? Don't you have spell check? And if you actually pronounce "probably" like that, you should be sent back to kindergarten.

3) Please know the difference between "there", "their" and "they're" before you even attempt to write. Oh, and the difference between "its" and "it's", and "your" and "you're". These words are NOT interchangeable!

3) Using the same word two or more times in the same paragraph. There are times when it can't be avoided, but please, know how to use your thesaurus (perhaps I overuse mine at times, but at least I'm not boring).

4) Not even attempting to write the characters in character. You may as well be writing original fiction if you're going to do that.

5) Changing scenes or jumping forward in time without indicating that in some fashion. Please don't make me try to figure out what's going on. I barely have time to read FF let alone try to decode it.

6) Deus ex Machina: STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT!!!!! If you can't justify it, don't write it!!! Believe me when I tell you, I will NOT read your story further if you use this device!!! Yes, I know the ancient Greeks used it all the time. Evolve, people!

more to come . . .

Bogged Down by Vanessa S. Quest reviews
Reid finds himself in a perilous situation and has to cope until back-up arrives. Not related to my other H/R series, this will be a multi-part, part 1 now up. Please R & R, as my narcissism drives me to write more drabble.

I'm not a Baby! by Kalnaman reviews
Gideon is coming back to Quantico to take care of Reid. Kidfic. Now rated T, please read warnings in part 10. A slight crossover with Stargate SG1 but not much. Will be a little more at the end.

Little Big Men reviews
This is a silly little fantasy wherein Neal and Mozzie become children. As the story progresses if it does it will take a village to raise them.
White Collar - Rated: T - English - Chapters: 7 - Words: 15,667 - Reviews: 135 - Favs: 44 - Follows: 64 - Updated: 9/7/2011 - Published: 8/3/2011
Absolved reviews
This is part 3 of my trilogy after Condemned & Heads I Win . It will stand alone, but may be a richer experience if read after the others. Takes place just after Elephants Memory & deals with Reid's drug dependence issues.

An Excellent Example of Being Human reviews
This is the continuation to Frost on Flowers. Reid and Neal want to get to the bottom of the coded mystery, but how far will they go to find the answers? What will Hotch and Peter have to say about it? Will stand alone, but better if read after FoF.

Heads I Win, Tails You Lose reviews
This is the follow-up to my previous story, Condemned. It is meant to be the first case the CM team takes after Elephant's Memory. Boys are being kidnapped and murdered in the Pacific Northwest. Not exactly Reid-centric, but may become so occationally.

Crash and Burn reviews
This is a one-shot. Reid drives distracted, gets in a traffic accident, and Hotch has some choice words for him.

Frost on Flowers reviews
Neal is bored in Washington, D.C. and Reid needs help with a family mystery. Trouble ensues. How will Hotch and Peter deal with them? *Fair warning*: Spanking of an adult. One-shot but a long one. Part 2 titled: An Excellent Example of Being Human.

Condemned reviews
This is my answer to Elephant's Memory. It's always bothered me that Reid was seemingly left to handle his drug addiction alone, and though this episode touches base, it doesn't do he or the BAU team justice.
