Author has written 54 stories for Professionals.

I am a writer of fanfiction using the characters of Bodie and Doyle from the TV series The Professionals. I make no money from my work and publish for the pleasure of myself and others.

Thanks to Brian Clemens for inventing these two and the fabulous programme.

I use the characters within a variety of settings, not always based on an episode. I move them through time if it suits me. I marry them off. I don't always stick to canon. I have an 'off-duty' thread, which means I can invent scenarios for them that would not otherwise exist. It is a simple pleasure!

I was around when the series first aired and have loved it ever since. I can see the humour in it, and how the actors breathed life into the characters.

If you enjoy my work or hate it, please leave a comment. It will help me develop as a writer and I appreciate any proper, well thought out criticism.

I do use a beta reader who is lovely, and helps me with my thought process. Many thanks to her.
