Author has written 6 stories for Lie to Me, and Law and Order: SVU.

The usual disclaimer in case I ever forget - I don't own any of the shows I write about or anything affiliated with them. The ideas and any mistakes are my own, however.

RL still very much all-consuming. Amongst other things I haved moved halfway across the world to Denmark and am in the middle of Finals right now. I really intend to pick up where things left off soon though. I miss it! Thank you to everyone who has been reading and reviewing my work. Currently throwing around ideas for Lie To Me and The West Wing.

A special hello to all the creepers out there - yes I can see you :) don't be afraid to review/private message/story alert. I don't bite. I promise.
