Author has written 10 stories for Criminal Minds, Titanic, Alex Rider, White Collar, and Beowulf.
Hi, my name is Shelby. Welcome to my profile!
Here's a list of my stories:
Criminal Minds: completed multi-chapter “To Live For, To Die For”,
2 one-shots “Generosity and Gratitude” & “Zero”,
and my in-progresses “Something Better” & "The Art of Living"
Titanic: (my first attempt at something other than Criminal Minds) one-shot "I Can't Go On Without You"
Alex Rider: completed multi-chapter "Random Word Generator: Alex & Sabina"
White Collar: completed multi-chapter "Not Alone"
and one-shot "I'm Not a Dog, Peter!"
...and there's a Sherlock story in the works!
I'm also a registered Beta reader! Let me know if I can be of any help to you! :)
Right now I am helping someone from Brazil who wants to publish her fic in English. She sends me the chapters straight from an online translator and I fix the grammatical errors. It is challenging but also very rewarding. Not to mention really cool!
Her name is Ca Staub and the story is (White Collar) called, "Trust"... If you like my writing, please go check this story out. Her ideas are amazing! I just help make it more accessible to the readership. :)
My favorite show is Criminal Minds and I love Dr. Spencer Reid (hence my name).
My favorite pairings are Morgan/Garcia, Hotch/Prentiss, and JJ/Reid, Hotch/Beth, and the oh so adorable JJ/Will/Henry. I’m also open to Reid/Emily and Reid/Garcia. (poor Rossi gets left out)
About my profile pic, that's Dr. Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds (as if you didn't know) I got this picture from the criminal minds fan wiki website, no copyright infringement intended.
I'm not a fan of slash pairings. I fully support homosexuality, but I believe my favorite characters are straight, not gay.
Other TV shows I love include (not in any particular order): Covert Affairs, White Collar, Burn Notice, Royal Pains, Common Law, Once Upon a Time, Sherlock, Merlin, New Girl, and Jeopardy (I watch it every day!)
Favorite Movies (again in no particular order): Sherlock Holmes (and Game of Shadows), Pirates of the Caribbean series, Titanic, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Harry Potter series, 21 Jump Street, Eagle Eye, Die Hard series, National Treasure (and the sequel), The Hangover, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Troy, Bridesmaids, Transformers.
Favorite Books: Harry Potter series, The Maze Runner trilogy, The Hunger Games trilogy, Alex Rider series, other books by Anthony Horowitz (Gatekeepers/Power of Five), And Then There Were None (Agatha Christie), and Thirteen Reasons Why. I've read the Lord of the Rings but I prefer the movies because the books are just so dang long. And I absolutely LOVE the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the genius who introduced Sherlock Holmes to the world!
Favorite Hotties: Orlando Bloom, Matthew Gray Gubler, Channing Tatum, Justin Long, Justin Bartha, Shemar Moore, Rupert Grint, Christopher Gorham, Matt Bomer, Shia LaBeouf, Usher, MANY more!
My favorite band is The Fray; I also love All American Rejects, Eels, The Killers, Paramore, Linkin Park, Mumford and Sons, Evanesence, The Beatles, , and Maroon 5. One of my new favorites is fun.
My favorite solo artists include Adele, Regina Spektor, Christina Perri, Sara Bareilles, Bruno Mars, and Andy Grammer.
If you wanna know anything else about me just send me a message! :)
