Author has written 7 stories for Mentalist.

EDIT: I am guessing that most of you who have read my stories have at least a hunch that I have retired from Fan Fiction. You are correct. I quit watching the Mentalist, and quitting Fan Fiction was the next-very difficult- step. I thought for a long time that watching TM was okay, despite the language, sex, and drug use, as long as I didn't write the same way, or let that be reflected in my life.

Actually, I take that back; I have known for a long time that I need to stop watching the Mentalist, but I found it impossible to quit. I thought I couldn't do it.

I was obsessed.

Thinking about the Mentalist 24/7.

Planning my life around being able to watch the Mentalist.

I skipped too many after-church dinners to watch The Mentalist.

I rarely wrote about anything non-Mentalist related.

And I was starting to bend my standerds to allow my favorite characters the life they wanted.

I needed to quit.

The actual story behind what finally pushed me to quit is kind of long, so I won't bore you with it.

But after what happened, the actual act of quitting wasn't so hard.

But doing this-admitting that I wouldn't be finishing any of my stories... That was the hard part. For nearly two months I put it off.

But I owe it to all of you-the ones who kept me sane during a nearly impossible time of my life- to tell you the truth.

I hate not finishing projects. But these will remain unfinished.

I'm sorry.

I will be leaving my stories up, because I remember it driving me crazy when someone quit and taking their stoies down. "Hey! I was going to read that!" I would gripe to the computer, (Not that anyone could hear me.) and I could never understand them doing that.

All of you mean so much to me, and I will never forget all of the things you've done for me.

Good bye.

I love you all, and God Bless.


Hello, reader! If you are actually taking the time to read this, I appreciate it.

There is something I need to make clear right away, and it does relate to my stories, as you will see. I am a Christian. There won't be any swear words in my stories, and they won't have sexual content.

Hopefully, I don't need them. I use other words, and I think I paint fairly romantic scenes without them.

I just wanted to make that clear.

Ok, as for what I write for... (Glances at Pen Name.) I write for the Mentalist, obviously. I might do some crossovers, but the Mentalist will be the main subject of my stories.

By the way, about my Pen Name...Yes, I realize that it's Jane's wife's name. There actually is a story there, and I'd be happy to tell anyone who asks, through a message.

One thing, though: It doesn't mean I don't love Jisbon. Because I definately do.

I saw these on Special Agent Baker's profile, and had to use them:

“Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.”

“I don’t suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.”

“The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket.”

“I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.”

“People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.”

“Keep the dream alive: Hit the snooze button.”

I admit, I am facinated by names, so I will fill the rest of my page with the meanings of the characters' names. Some of them are kind of interesting...

Angela: Angelic, Angel.

Charlotte: Little woman.

Patrick: Aristocrat.

Jane: Believer in a gracious God.

Teresa: Gardener

Lisbon: Capital city in Portugal.

Kimball: Inviting. (Question: Exactly how much research did the writers do on names?)

Cho: Beautiful, butterfly. (I repeat...How much research did they do? Also, now I'm trying to picture Cho as a butterfly...Doesn't work.)

Wayne: Wheeler and Dealer. (Ok...I'm convinced. The writers did no research before naming any characters but Angela and Charlotte.)

Rigsby: (This one was a little tricky to find out. The best I can figure is: Home or Land owner.)

Grace: Graceful. (I think we all saw that one coming...Oh, well.)

Van Pelt: (A business name, meaning:) Skin or hide. (Interesting tidbit: If you go to geneology . com, it has a facinating story, that includes a mention of John's Son. I would explain, but it takes to much room.)

Thank you for reading, and God Bless.

"'Earlier, you asked me what you said to me. You know, right before you pretended to shoot me' 'I never really answered you, and I thought…I thought maybe I should.'" But would she? Two scenes from 4x24. Spoliers for that episode, obviously.
