Author has written 10 stories for Bonanza.

I'm a fan of Bonanza fiction that stays true to the original TV series, featuring the original cast characters, so that's what I aim to write! I think of my stories as episodes, and as I loved the series best when there were three brothers, I write stories from that era.

I write original work as well, but Bonanza fiction is great fun to do. I really hope those who enjoy my work will consider leaving a short review to encourage others to read it too.

I try hard to make my writing authentic, but I am English, so if anyone spots any un-Americanisms, I'm always grateful to know!

Hope you enjoy the stories.
