Author has written 22 stories for Mentalist, Once Upon a Time, and Castle.

I watch several (read: too many) shows, but only write for a few. I watch primarily dramas. Shonda Rhimes creates extremely addicting shows. So does Netflix. Chances are I've seen your favorite show or at least heard of it.

That being said, I basically write four types of stories:

1. The Mentalist canon-compliant oneshots - most likely post-eps. I imagine there might be several of these coming, giving the upcoming season and the massive FEELS potential.

2. Once Upon a Time canon-compliant oneshots - these include missing moments and post-eps. Sometimes the missing moments become a series of vignettes, but there is no overarching story (although there is an overall theme). This is mostly for my Charming family feels. There are lots of those.

3. Once Upon a Time AU multi-chapter stories - and yes, these are always AU. I strongly dislike the majority of current episodes because the characters who pulled me to the series in the first place have been shoved aside. I write AU so I can take my lovable characters and put them in different situations than canon does.

4. Rizzoli and Isles multi-chaptered stories - so far only one of these, and it's coauthored with starophie. You can find it on my list of favorite stories.

A few more quirks about me...

--I do not write sequels to my multi-chapter stories. This is because I develop the story around one central problem or conflict. Once that conflict is resolved, the story is over.

--I do not read a lot of stories, mostly because I don't have time to sort through the bad ones to find the good ones. Feel free to recommend some to me. If a story makes it on my favorites list, you know it's special.

--I can't watch shows in real time if I'm also trying to write a WIP for that show. Exceptions: when a show is bad. Jury's still out on the current season of Once, but dear god, there are feels.

--I am ridiculously excited for the serialized Mentalist. Several other shows I watch could learn from the Mentalist's example. It better not disappoint.
