Author has written 21 stories for Bonanza.

Hi everyone!

I have always loved Bonanza and when I was growing up, I often dreamed about being on the Ponderosa with those handsome Cartwright men as the little sister in the family or maybe a love interest. Of course I grew older and moved on to other daydreams. Then I discovered Bonanza World about two years ago and decided to write stories about some of those fantasies. I really enjoyed making the characters come alive in my stories, and found that I loved writing. But sadly, Bonanza World came to an end and so I put my stories away.

Then I found this wonderful site several months ago and at first I just enjoyed reading all the great stories on here. But eventually after working on my own stories to make them better, I decided to post them on this site. Hopefully some of you will enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them. Adam is my favorite character to write about with those wonderful dimples and that smile (sigh), but I have written for all the family... after all, each one of the Cartwrights is special.

If you want to email me any comments about a story (please be respectful) I would love to hear from you as I always enjoy hearing from the readers on any of my stories.

If you have enjoyed any of my stories or any of the other stories on this wonderful site, just know that hours of work go into the stories for you to read. So just take a moment and let the author know what you means a lot to those of us who write these stories. And if you enjoy any of the older stories of mine, please don't hesitate to leave a review as I'd love to know that you enjoyed reading them also.

And remember, writers are kind of like bears...if you feed us just a little bit, we just want more! So please feed the bears and leave reviews!

A shout out and a big thank you to Gaben for all her hard work on designing some of my story covers!
