Author has written 84 stories for MI-5/Spooks.

I am a fan of good-quality British TV - from The Lakes' in the 1990's to Spooks' in the 2000's. (To be honest, my obsession with British TV goes back to 1968 and a comedy program called "At Last The 1948 Show", the tapes from which were unfortunately taped over, so there is only minimal footage left.)

I write fanfics for "Spooks", specifically Harry & Ruth stories. I cannot get enough of these two. They are the perfect couple - flawed, awkward, always forgiving the other, and with a love and respect for each other which endures almost everything which is thrown at it. I am especially fond of Harry Pearce. To me he is the perfect modern hero ... bold to the point of foolishness, always prepared to make a romantic gesture, fiercely protective, loyal, courageous; while at the same time as he is hesitant, and never loses sight of his own and others' humanity.

Easter 2011 reviews
I wanted to write an Easter story, and this is as close as I'll get. It is set Easter 2011 (thus the title ...) and Ruth has chosen to work on the Grid for the whole 4 days. Why not? It's not as though she has anything better to do. 2 chapters of (not terribly original) HR fluff.

Pretending reviews
This multi-chapter fic begins between Series' 4 and 5, and continues from there. In this story, Adam was not shot by Angela Wells, and so is fit and well. It begins with a non-canon story line, where Adam decides that Harry needs to go undercover, and he needs to pose as a married man. Why? Only Adam knows. Some brief appearances by other S.5 characters.

Harry's Choice reviews
This is a one shot - mostly serious, but hopeful - and better I just post it, and let you get on with reading. Whatever I say here will not help you in any way, or properly prepare you for it. All is revealed in the reading, so it's best I leave you to it.

To Join Our Illustrious Brotherhood reviews
A one-shot, created from a series of hidden scenes which begins immediately after the meeting (in 4.05) where Harry and Ruth have a mild disagreement over Harry's use of the word, brotherhood, to describe a collective of Grid personnel. Ruth and Fiona decide to take things into their own hands.

All Out At Silly Point reviews
An AU one-shot, set some time in S.9. Harry tries to explain to Ruth the rules of cricket. Is that even possible, and does Ruth even care? This is my tribute to the long standing cricketing rivalry between England and Australia. Light hearted nonsense, rated T for a few sweary words.

Beyond Flirting reviews
This one shot is a follow up story to "Flirting", and it may help if you read that first, although this story can stand alone. Set mid S.5 (and where Cotterdam did not happen, and perhaps O.

After The Deluge reviews
This story - in 3 chapters - opens a little over two weeks after Harry gave away Albany to save Ruth. Both are on suspension. How to communicate? Ruth has an idea, but is it a good one?

Another Christmas reviews
A Harry-centric story. It is Christmas 2012, just over a year after Ruth's death. Whilst sad to contemplate Harry having to face yet another Christmas without Ruth, I hope that this story is more uplifting and hopeful than it is tragic. One-shot.

Nighttime Conversations reviews
This is an alternative outcome to the post-Cotterdam fiasco in 5.5. Both Harry and Ruth are on suspension while the events are being investigated. Ruth is bored and lonely, and she misses Harry. 5 chapters of irrelevant, (sometimes smutty) nonsense. Completely AU, and on occasion, OOC.

A companion piece to "Jealous", my last fic, a one-shot. Set 7 weeks after Harry proposed in S.9. Ruth is upset that Harry is to engage in a mission which she sees as not only foolish, but dangerous. 5 chapters, AU.

Set almost 2 years post-Ruth's death. Harry is attempting to move on, but is his heart in it? A little schmaltzy in places. One-shot.

A Most Ordinary Miracle reviews
This story is the 2nd part of a trilogy which began with "While She Was Gone". It picks up the story of H & R almost 2 years on, and takes place during the last half of Series 8. Chiefly AU & mostly fluffy. A story in 3 parts.

The Analyst reviews
Set a number of weeks after the end of 10.6, Harry is trying to find a decent analyst to replace Ruth. This is a totally AU story, with more than a touch of science fiction. Rather angsty at first.

There Must Be A Second Time reviews
Set some time early in S10. Not true to plot. Chiefly a H & R story. Somewhat AU. Follows on from my recent story, "Love In Ruins". Can stand alone, but makes more sense if you read "Love In Ruins" first.

Let Me Go reviews
Set from the final scenes in 10.06. This time, the story is told from Ruth's point of view. This is a difficult story to tell.

If I Should Fall From Grace With God reviews
Set after Harry's poorly timed proposal. A light-hearted look at the possibility for a different outcome. Story title lifted from a song written by Shane MacGowan, which may have nothing at all to do with this story...but I really like the title.
