Author has written 38 stories for Criminal Minds, Lie to Me, and Bates Motel.

Hi, it's great that you're here. Therefore, you at least deserve some random trivia about me to feed your curiosity.

I love books, movies and TV shows that take a closer look at human nature and psychological aspects. Once I'm hooked, like really hooked, I can't get enough. And since fan fiction is such a great opportunity to extend fictional worlds, I'm here. The best thing about writing fan fiction, though, is that I met other authors and readers. So many wonderful, interesting and witty people. You guys rock! Writing would only be half as much fun without you.

One more thing: English is not my first language. This is not meant as an excuse for spelling mistakes or bad grammar. I'm just saying, hoping that there are fewer mistakes in my latest stories than in my previous efforts.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Stories Untold reviews
Here are some scenes that could have happened during the show, starting with 1x12 Blinded and the question that always bugged me why Alec wasn't at the hospital after Gillian had been attacked. The scenes will be a mix of angst, humor, drama - whatever my muse comes up with. Enjoy!

In Between reviews
"I never expected her to fall in love with me. It just happened. Going such a long way back as partners and friends, I can't even pinpoint the moment it happened. One day, it was just... there. But it's a gridlock. And it's my fault." Cal's and Gillian's points of view on their complicated relationship and my second contribution to the #PostSecretChallenge.

As it is reviews
For years, Cal and Gillian have been dithering over a certain issue. Will they or won't they? If they are unable to take the next step, maybe someone or something else has to give them a gentle push. This story is different from anything I've ever written and my first contribution to the #PostSecretChallenge.

Something like that reviews
"I was afraid you were gonna get hurt." - "You were protecting me?" - "Something like that." What if those words meant much more than what we saw on the show? What if there's an untold story that has the potential to change everything between Cal and Gillian?
