To achieve the impossible, one must think the absurd; look to where everyone else has looked, but to see what no one else has seen. – Author Unknown

Keep your behaviours positive, because your behaviours become your habits.
Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny. - Gandhi

There's a time and place for everything, and I believe it’s called 'fan fiction'. - Joss Whedon


I remember when '30 Something' was my Mom's favorite TV show - now it's how old I am. I've lived all over - I was born in Maine, raised in southern Minnesota, went to college in Wisconsin, lived in Michigan and Ohio, and done my fair share of traveling both for business and pleasure. Now I'm back in Minnesota - I live and work in the Minneapolis - St. Paul area.

I thought for sure I'd grow up to be something really cool - like an astraunaught, a doctor, a lawyer... I planned to become an engineer... but then I met Calculas... needless to say - we did not get along! So after many adventures with a career in outside sales that took me all across the country, I now find myself working in a finance department as a business analyst - not what I had in mind as a kid - but I love it.


What am I working on right now? Well quite a lot actually... plot bunnies continue to find new and interesting ways to ambush me. They are stealthy little things... I'm pretty sure mine are ninja plot bunnies with the way they are able to sneak up on me. So you'll continue to see stories from me for what I hope will be quite some time to come.

I do promise however, that while I may occasionaly take a break here or there from a story - I will never leave one unfinished. I find it extremely unfair to all of you who have vested so much time and energy into reading it - as well as all the time and energy I've invested into writing it.


The full version of all of my stories can be found at The Writer's Coffee Shop and Archive of Our Own:

http://www.thewriterscoffeeshop.com/library/viewuser.php?uid=60220

http://archiveofourown.org/users/Whatif_ifonly/works

Going forward, all stories will be posted to both these sites as well as FFN. The complete version as it was intended to be read will be posted at The Writer's Coffee Shop and Archive of Our Own and a version that has been edited to be compliant with FFN's content policy will be posted here.

Thanks - once again to everyone who nominated and voted 'The Road Before Us' as Best JJ/Reid in the 2012 Profiler's Choice Criminal Minds Fanfic Awards over at Chit Chat on Author's Corner. I'm very honored that you are all continuing to enjoy 'The Roads Series'. Although 'The Road Not Taken' didn't win for Best Het Romance, I still want to say thank you to all of you who nominated and voted for it. It was a huge honor to be nominated in such a broad and wide open category. From the bottom of my heart, thank you all very much.
