Author has written 30 stories for Castle.

I live in the Land Down Under.

One of my hobbies, no, make that obsessions is reading. I can't get enough of reading. My study is so crammed with books you like wouldn't believe.

I have always loved writing though I have never had anything published. It's mainly been for my entertainment only.

Watching Castle is my guilty pleasure and writing stories about them even more so.
