Author has written 10 stories for Bones.

Dear Reader:

Thanks to NetFlix, I fell hopelessly in love with Bones in January of 2011. I watched every episode back to back. After that, I watched them all again, but this time on my laptop with head phones so I didn't miss a single word, a single salacious look, a single nuance. After Season 6's finale, I felt compelled to take what God gave me (an insatiable desire to write, an unexpected layoff, and a supportive family) and use it to fill in the gaps that I felt needed filling for my own sanity's sake. That is what I have done in The When and the How: A Bone to Pick, my first, and ongoing, fiction.

You, Dear Reader, should you choose to accept the challenge, have become the recipient of my obsession with writing and with the Bones Universe. Please be kind to it ... share it with your friends ... challenge it to grow and improve by providing feedback. Your every click on the title or chapters of my story, your every comment, your every peek at my profile, encourages me to live my dream of being read all over the world, which is what happens when you publish here! Thank you for giving me that encouragement! BESOS Y ABRAZOS, QUERIDOS!


Who am I? Wife to a lovely hunk of manhood, mother to 10 yr old twins, Carolina and Zakari. They are, of course, brilliant & gorgeous (No, really!) We live in MN where we have four absolutely beautiful seasons every year, and my street is lined with mature birch and oak trees.

At 47, I'm finally doing what I've always dreamed of doing, but have never had the confidence to attempt - writing fiction. I believe this is what I was created for this world to do. People fascinate me: their motivations, their behaviors, their loves. I am in love with the Booth-Bones chemistry - that is what COMPELLED me to start writing, finally

What you will read here are what I consider rough draft quality scribblings of The When and the How: A Bone to Pick and my other shorter pieces, both those completed and those still in progress. When I began writing here in the summer of 2011, I was very new to this and made many, many mistakes. I hope you are able to see past those and enjoy the story arc, the character development, and the humor despite the errors. If these WERE real, published novels, they would go through several rounds of editing and become tighter - more professional - with fewer trips around the bend. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I am enjoying writing it!

Bed of Lies reviews
Post S8 Finale. He had no choice but to end their engagement. She was brilliant, but how long would it take her to figure out why he'd had to do it and what was at stake. He searched for a way to tell her without putting her life, their life, in danger. He had to trust her, and so he did. A hopeful, emotional, and realistic short story about one man's fight against all odds.

The Sexy Anthrpophagist: Missing Moments from TWATH:AB2P reviews
The Sexy Anthropophagist: Missing Meanderings from TWATH:AB2P. Sometimes a scene or conversation is conceived, but never grows legs to carry it anywhere. Usually they are funny or sexy snippets that simply add nothing to the storyline, but I still can't let go of them. This is where I'll catalog my orphans! Rated M for profanity and just in case I feel naughty.

One shots after most Series 7 episodes. Why did Bones behave that way? What was Booth referring to when he said such and such? This series attempts to fill in the holes left by the limitations of commercial television. It provides fluff and conversations that cold have occurred after the camera stopped rolling. Enjoy!
