Author has written 45 stories for Murdoch Mysteries, Dexter, and Kyle XY.

Let's see, what do I have to say for myself? Not much so instead I will now give a mind-numbingly long list of things I like. Read through all of it...if you dare!

Fave tv shows include but aren't limited to Murdoch Mysteries (best cop/mystery show I've ever seen though Castle is pretty sweet too), Fringe (best sci-fi show I've ever seen), Breaking Bad (best drama I've ever seen), Dexter (especially S1, 2 and 4; wtf kind of ending was that?) Scrubs, Modern Family, Castle (excluding S4), Parks and Rec (excluding S1), and S1-5 of Supernatural. An awesome Canadian show called Orphan Black came out in the summer and I'm dying to see how it will continue. It's possible I will re-watch and write a fanfic before it returns...we'll see.

Fave books: Pride and Prejudice, Count of Monte Cristo, Three Musketeers, To Kill a Mockingbird, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, HP series (in particular the third even though time travel paradoxes perplex me), A Song of Ice and Fire series (in particular books 1-3), Frankenstein, Ubik, and there are probably many more that I am not thinking of at the moment. The Hyperion Cantos Saga: best sci-fi series I've ever read!

Fave movies: Driving Lessons (totally underrated), Hot Fuzz (wickedly funny), Gattaca (perfect sci-fi except for the soundtrack), 2002 version of Cristo even though it is rife with inaccuracies both in plot and the fact that like everyone is British sounding even though they are supposed to be French. But it's got Richard Harris and Jim Caviezel in it so I forgave all of this. And on that note, I would like to add Frequency to this list. Watched it recently again and it is still really good IMO. It gets slightly cheesy at points but given the subject matter, I'll allow it. Haven't seen a movie that I loved in a long time...

Fave musicians: Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Jeff Buckley, Alicia Keys (albums 1 and 2), Adele, Of Monsters and Men, Radiohead, Walk Off the Earth, Emma-Lee, Soundgarden, Incubus (earlier stuff), Mumford and Sons (debut album), Sara Bareilles (her third album is genius!), Stereophonics. Currently I'm obsessed with Pentatonix!

Murder at the Rubicon II by Ethelfreda reviews
Murdoch sets out to break the deadlock that is preventing his marrying Julia. It won't be easy. He knows he must deny years of training and faith in order to secure their future together. This dilemma has caused his mood to careen from giddy silliness to desperate melancholy. What he has yet to realize, is that she is in this, as in everything, his partner.

Murdoch the Vampire Slayer reviews
I think the title says it all but I will add that this takes place around S4's Bloodlust (surprise, surprise). Also, it's got a similar formula to Oh For the Love of... in that only Murdoch is the odd man out, everyone else has their usual roles.

The Case of the Lost Ferrets reviews
Note: I like the sounds of this title for some reason even though it has nothing to do with the story. I can't figure out why I like it so much. An incredibly handsome young man has an unexpected rendezvous with a beautiful stranger. For anyone who doesn't know, rendezvous means secret meeting. I learned that from Henry. Also, cochon means pig. That parrot was very silly.
