Author has written 27 stories for Gunsmoke.

I've been writing Gunsmoke FF since June of 2012. I never wrote a thing before then but enjoyed Gunsmoke FF and liked the Gunsmoke characters so much I decided to give it a try. Once I started, a lot of very generous writers and readers encouraged me, and I got hooked. I am endlessly inspired by the talent of the writers who post here.

My greatest gifts in life are my wonderful husband and two children who are now young adults. One's a tattoo artist and the other's a cellist. I am a great believer in the value of art of all kinds and couldn't be prouder.

I'm a city girl, but I have a real affinity for westerns, particularly Gunsmoke. I hope you read my stories, and let me know what you think.

Growing Old With Kitty 3 by lilyjack00 reviews
The final installment in the Growing Old With Kitty trilogy. Lotsa cowboys, romance & adventure with young Matt & Kitty smack dab in the midst of the whole shootin' match. Kitty's fondest wishes come true at last. AU. A world of thanks to my two betas, Glow and Moonstone Maiden, for enduring this needy fic author's endless questions and revisions. xoxo

Growing Old With Kitty 2 by lilyjack00 reviews
Picks up right where Growing Old With Kitty left off. Young cowboys, dastardly villains, eccentric characters, adventure & romance, Matt and Kitty-style. AU. This story is complete in and of itself, but the entire "Growing Old" story arc will conclude and wrap up loose ends in Growing Old With Kitty 3 to be posted at a later date. Unfortunately, Real Life slows me down sometimes.

Growing Old With Kitty by lilyjack00 reviews
Disciple Fic. Alternate Universe. Youth and misadventure and romance and cowboys. Not steamy, but very sigh-worthy, I hope. This story will be continued in Growing Old With Kitty 2, but don't hold yer breath! These first thirty chapters took me three months to write. Please be patient, and I will pick up exactly where I left off in this fic. All the sweet romance you can stand!

ATC for 'Anybody Can Kill a Marshal' Part of the flashback dialogue between Matt and Kitty is from the ep. I take no credit for that, of course, except for the surrounding description.

Also another attempt on my part to say something in one chapter.
