Author has written 16 stories for In Plain Sight.

I am a huge In Plain Sight fan, as you can clearly see. I also love Friends, Frasier, The West Wing, Mad About You, and Grey's Anatomy. In spite of how many shows I have obsessed over, In Plain Sight is the only one I've been able to pen fan-fiction for. It might have something to do with how much I love Mary McCormack, but I don't know for sure. I have loved writing in any capacity since I was seven years old, although it has dwindled over the years to this. I appreciate any and all readers and reviewers I have; you guys are what keep me going! Outside of television, I love elite gymnastics, although I was never a gymnast myself. I have followed it since the 2004 Olympics and have been an avid devotee ever since.

I am crazy about kids; I was an elementary education major in college and am currently working as a substitute teacher. My love of kids has me including them (or the promise of them,) in every story I create. Unlike some, I don't write fan-fiction because I think the IPS is terrible and feel I need to fix it; the writers and the creators do more with it than I feel I ever could. My scenarios mostly come from things I think would be fun or interesting to see. I, like many, wanted Mary and Marshall together at the close of the series, but I wasn't disappointed with the way it ended, which definitely makes me a rarity. Even so, almost every story I write still has them hooking up!

Here is a rundown of my stories by series, listed from earliest to most recent in each case:

The Sam Saga:

- Look to the Sky

- The Girl You Are

- My Way Home

- Needing A Chance

- Downy Feathers

- I began "The Sam Saga" when the show was on hiatus between seasons four and five, but "Look to the Sky" starts in the middle of season four and continues forward from there.

The Holiday Series:

- Independence Day

- By Thanksgiving

- Every February

- "The Holiday Series" begins almost immediately post-finale in season five and continues forward from there.

Jamie and the Twins:

- Empty Arms

- Twin Tailspins

- Critical Mass

- This series does not actually have a title; I called it "Jamie and the Twins" just as a placeholder. "Empty Arms" starts in the middle of season four and progresses onward.

Stand-Alones (No Series):

- Collide

  • "Collide" was my first In Plain Sight story, so I beg you will be kind! I wrote it when the show was on hiatus between seasons four and five and it takes place approximately around the close of season four.
  • - Inseparable

  • This is a mini-fic or a "ficlette" expanding in five chapters upon the brief glimpse we got of Mary in the delivery room before Norah was born.
  • - Over the Airwaves

  • "Over the Airwaves" takes place soon following the series finale in season five.
  • - Glowing Embers

  • This is set during mid-to-late season four.
  • - Summer Stardust

  • "Summer Stardust" is also set mid-to-late season four.
  • That's about all there is to me! Along with the fan-fiction, I enjoy making fan videos and creating banners/blends. Thank-you so much for reading! I wouldn't be here without you!
