Author has written 3 stories for Robin Hood BBC.

Hi, fellow fans of BBC's "Robin Hood"! I was moved to write my first fanfiction story, "A Friend Closer Than a Brother", after the series ended and I felt so sad and let down from all the character deaths, etc. (I cried for days over Guy's death) I finished the rough draft in the summer of 2010, but didn't start posting it on this site until several months later. Publishing this first story (my very first completed novel), was the fulfillment of a lifelong dream, and I have Guy to thank. He was such an inspiration that I was compelled to write a whole book to give him a happier ending!

After my Season 3 AU rewrite, "A Friend Closer Than a Brother", I wrote the follow-up story "First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes?", which continues the story from where it left off after "Friend".

I've just finished the sequel to both previous stories. "Rodger and Eleanor" is a next-generation tale about Guy and Meg's son, and Robin and Marian's daughter, but it includes much more about our familiar and beloved characters from the show. All three of my stories are interconnected as one long tale, but they can be read separately as well.

I've been a writer (as a hobby) since childhood. I love to tell a story! I enjoy classic literature, science fiction (Star Trek, the original series) and fantasy (I loved the "Dragonriders of Pern" series by Anne McCaffrey), and anything by Jane Austen, J.R.R. Tolkien, James Herriot, and the British writer Catherine Cookson.

I'm an American who feels she was born in the wrong country--I should've been a Brit. BBC's "Robin Hood" has been a real inspiration, and the source of many hours of fun writing stories, reading other people's fanfiction, and hashing over the show on discussion boards. My favorite character? Guy, hands down! But I like all the others, too, especially Allan a Dale.

I live in the beautiful state of Maine, with my husband (who patiently puts up with my Guy obsession), and three cats, Duncan, Chelsea and Penny. What do I do in "real life"? I clean houses. Ugh! But it gives me time and opportunity to write stories in my head while I'm scrubbing other people's dirt. And yes, I do have a life beyond that. I love to read, take day trips to scenic areas, sing, listen to music, and be creative. I love animals of all kinds, especially cats.

My online name was in honor of, and is now in memory of, my beloved Manx cat Jack, who passed away on 12/27/13 at the ripe old age of 16. He will live on in my heart forever.

Thank you to all my readers for your interest, encouragement, and reviews--I appreciate it very much!

What is and what will never be by Jammeke reviews
"I'm sorry," didn't seem to cover the damage that had been done, the things he felt, the regret – and the pain that was somehow worse than being stabbed. But it was the only thing Guy had to offer. The only thing, it seemed, he had left.

Rodger and Eleanor reviews
Guy and Meg's son Rodger and Robin and Marian's daughter Eleanor have played together as friends, and fought with each other, for as long as they can remember.

The sequel to my S3 AU "A Friend Closer Than a Brother".

It's been three years since the siege and Guy's pardon from King Richard. Sheriff Vaisey is no more, and the Locksleys and the Gisbornes are living peacefully in Locksley village. So, why is Sir Guy so anxious and upset on this fine summer day? Based on the ending of my season 3 re-write, "A Friend Closer Than a Brother", and the prelude to my sequel, "Rodger and Eleanor".

A fast-paced retelling of Season 3, starting with the Season 2 finale. What really happened that day in Acre? What if Guy wasn't the one who...? What if Marian didn't...? Will the Sheriff ever get his comeuppance? And will Robin and Guy ever find it in their hearts to make peace and join forces? Partially follows season 3, then veers off in a new direction for a happier ending.
