Author has written 28 stories for StarTrek: The Original Series, Leverage, and Mentalist.

Hi all,

I am excited to share these stories with you.I usually only write Star Trek: The Original Series, but I've recently started writing for Leverage and The Mentalist as well. When I write, my laptop shares my lap with my Romanian kitty, who came back with me from my Peace Corps service. I welcome constructive criticism, so that I can improve my writing overall.

I don't own Star Trek or Leverage, but I do like to invent pieces to add to the world, and people to play on them. I don't write slash.

I value your comments, and it makes my day to know what you think about my stories. I take my writing seriously, and want to know your thoughts, even if there's something you don't exactly like, so that I can improve. Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoy.

*NOTE* If you would like to read any of my original stories, a few are posted at fiction press dot net. Would love to know what you think of them.

Stealing Home by Rorke's Drift reviews
You can take getting shot as lightly as you please... Yes, this is another Rundown post-ep (because who can resist such obvious temptation for hurt/comfort goodness?). Mostly Eliot-Hardison-Parker friendship. All chapters have already been written.

The Mentalist: Gray Areas reviews
Patrick Jane isn't sure what to think when his boss at the FBI asks him to "talk" to a colleague, and then to keep it all under wraps. Is the team facing a potential new danger? Original Mentalist adventure, set middle/end of season 6. Please R and R. I don't own the Mentalist and I don't profit. Constructive Comments Welcome.

The Mentalist: Red Fog reviews
This piece has an episode tag to 1X18 Russet Potatoes. This is my take on the missing scene that must have taken place between the time when they all got off of the roof at the Model Life center and when Rigsby finally returned to work, a day or two later. As always, constructive comments are welcome. I don't own or profit. Please R and R. Thank you. Hope you enjoy. One shot.

The Mentalist: Red Roses and Raspberry Tea reviews
Patrick Jane's curiosity is piqued when he finds a mysterious envelope propped on his desk-an invitation to tea with a woman about to be arrested for the murder of her husband, who was a former Governor of California and former Bureau Chief for the CBI. Facing pressure from above, can Jane and the team help her unravel the mystery of her husband's death before time runs out? R&R.

Leverage: Where Angels Fear To Tread reviews
Injuries are nothing unusual for the Leverage team, and especially not for their hitter. Besides, Eliot is, in the best case, something of a lone wolf. So it isn't odd that an injured Eliot decides to lay low for a couple of days until the team receives a message that worries them for their hitter's safety, and they know that they must find him in time or risk losing him forever.

Leverage:Thicker Than Water reviews
Eliot thought he had walked away from his past, and with Moreau out of business, he had come a long way toward making amends. Now, his past is colliding with his future, and innocent people are getting caught in the crossfire. Will Eliot be able to stop those seeking to destroy everything he has built before it is too late? I don't own or profit. Pls R/R.
