Author has written 6 stories for Labyrinth, Numb3rs, Crossing Jordan, and Blood Ties.

About me: I suppose you could say I'm a 32-year-old walking contradiction. I like things at both ends of the spectrum, which, I guess, puts me right in the middle. I have a job that I love where I get to use science and math and there's no room for "creativity". But I admire art and creativity in just about any form. I love going to theaters, concerts, operas, ballets, museums, galleries, you name it. I tend to get rather dirty at work, but anybody who knows me would be the first to tell you I'm the biggest girlie-girl they know. And I admit, outside of my job, if I get dissheveled in anyway, I tend to get annoyed very quickly. I also adore shopping. It's become my sport, with my biggest weakness being shoes. I adore fashion, follow the red carpet fashion police (though I'm not as interested in the gossip), and subscribe to Lucky magazine. That said, I also despise most of the culture surrounding all of that stuff. I love night clubs but hate drinking. Parties aren't my scene, but I love social events. And, as musch as I love romance (especially in the form of chick flicks), I'll be the first one to tell you that it doesn't exist. Confused yet? Good. So am I.

I've been writing for a long time. Even when I was young, I would buy all of these blank journals and just write stories in them, usually romantic little fairy tales. I'll freely admit that I'm a sap (I cry at chick flicks like a baby). As soon as I learned how to type without looking at my fingers, I started to type stories on to my computer and just in more recent years stumbled upon this site and the world of fanfiction. I've been addicted ever since.

Music is a big influence in my writing. I'm always being inspired by some lyric or other. I even have lists in my iTunes that I listen to when writing for a specific story. I listen to it all except acid jazz and bluegrass. Everything else happily coexists on my iPod. Some favorites are Bon Jovi (hey, Jersey girl, after all), U2, David Bowie, The Killers, Andrea Bocelli, The Mamas & The Papas, Franz Ferdinand, Maroon 5, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and The Beatles.

And, like most people on this site, real life tends to interfere quite often with my writing. I'll make a promise to myself to update, and to write more, but then something happens and I'm gone for a while. So, I do what I can. I've got a couple of stories going now.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my little blurb here! I hope this means you're reading, and enjoying my stories...and hopefully leaving a little review...

Good luck, good health, and good life!

My Stories:

Closure (Blood Ties) - Complete

Hungry Eyes (Blood Ties) - Complete

Persephone (Labyrinth) On hiatus. I haven't quite given up yet and still have most of my hand-written notes about the story, including a lot of the back story for the universe I've set it in. However, the actual story is gone to the place where all files go once eaten by a rather nasty computer virus. Starting again is something I unfortunately don't have the time for right now, but maybe one day...

Misdirected (Crossing Jordan) Incomplete - sorry, but it's going to stay incomplete unless I get struck by sudden inspiration and a lot of extra time on my hands.

Amused (Crossing Jordan) - Complete

Gold Star (Numb3rs) - Complete
