Author has written 1 story for Castle.

You can call me Janice, never Jan. I've written, but not published a couple of children's books and I've begun several works of fiction but not yet completed any. I have a B.A. in Economics and did graduate work in psychology. I've worked in libraries and lots of social services jobs, including substance abuse counseling. I'm currently self-employed as an esthetician.

Why I Love Castle: Of course, the classic formula: The two have chemistry and deny it. Banter, banter, banter. Then happily ever after. I've always liked this formula, think Tracy/Hepburn, Nick & Nora, and so many others. Casting the right people in the roles, the writing, everything. Interestingly, the chemistry permeates beyond Castle and Beckett to the entire cast of characters. Everything works in this show: the writing, the editing, the directing, and, last but not least, the acting. Every season I come to a greater appreciation of the talent involved in the production and delivery of this program. I rewind and re-watch a lot AND I'm entertained every time I re-watch an episode.

Why I Love FanFiction.net: Time between weekly episodes started to feel too long. Then the show would randomly go on hiatus! So I started watching the spoilers on youtube, then I started reading the blogs, then I started watching the interviews on various sites, and somehow I wound up here, reading FanFiction. After 4x23 I kept looking for a story I wanted to read that no one was writing...so I'm writing it.

There's a lot of talent on this site, a whole lot.

I really hope you will write reviews of my chapters. I don't care if it's as simple as, "I liked this," or "I didn't like that."

Vice by chezchuckles reviews
AU: Beckett is a uniform on the Vice squad at the 12th. It's five years before the season one meeting. Cartographical sent me and Sandiane Carter a list of AUs she wanted to see. We were both so excited about Vice Beckett that we each wrote our own. This is mine. Thanks to garnetgivealittlelove for the cover art.

Every Move You Make by ColieMacKenzie reviews
This is inarguably the worst thing she's ever agreed to. She consciously forces her limbs to relax, tries to block out the knowledge of the set of eyes that are irrevocably fixated on every one of her movements.

Your Own Devices by ColieMacKenzie reviews
He's pretty sure he convinced the lady with the smoky voice that he knew exactly what he was doing, knew how to give her a good time. A variation on the 'Vice Beckett' theme. For ER, on request.

Good Intentions by ColieMacKenzie reviews
He is sluggish, floating; a nebulous drift into awareness as her scent surrounds him, teases him; so vividly burned into every layer of his skin after today that he is sure he's dreaming. Sequel to LURE.

Likewise by FanficwriterGHC reviews
It's not a joke, or a catastrophe, or even Castle that brings them together. Somehow, like the punch line of a bad joke, it's Mother's Day that does it.

Rick & Kate are beginning their "new normal," in love and exploring their new adventures as a couple. The Dragon must have retired to his lair and the new normal is sweet...or is it naive?
