Author has written 11 stories for Castle, and McLeod’s Daughters.

Hello hello! My name is Alana and I'm a twenty-something New Zealander. I'm a Castle and McLeods Daughters fanatic and I write purely for the fun of letting my imagination run wild :)
I get a lot of inspiration from songs, and I mean a lot! Seriously, if there's a quote or phrase in one of my stories that sounds familiar, it probably is... and I dream up scenarios when I'm lying in bed that I then have to write down before they slip away [or before I fall asleep...]
I don't believe I'm a writer, I'm just a person who likes to play around with words.

Mr & Mrs Castle by ghost writer 77 reviews
One-shots of married and family life between Rick and Kate. Something sweet and fluffy for those who like "aww"-moments. *Chapter 62 up* "Look, I messed up by not telling you and I'm sorry for that." He stepped closer, his face taut. "But I'm not going to apologize for trying to keep my family safe."

Eye of the Storm by International08 reviews
Post-ep mid-ep? for "After the Storm." There's none of the playfulness that marked the last time. Nor is it like the first time—raw, desperate need tinged still with anger and a deep hurt. This time is purposeful, deliberate. One shot. Complete. Rated M.

Of Finding Innocence by FanficwriterGHC reviews
When Kate Beckett went to get her book signed by Richard Castle, she never imagined that she'd end up meeting his daughter, much less offering to babysit for the afternoon. AU.

What Pales in Comparison by FanficwriterGHC reviews
Rick Castle, who kept her from freezing to death and held her hand in front of a bomb, prepared to die with her, wasn't who she was going home with. Kate's night after the end of Countdown.

This is just a short wee drabble piece I wrote, not sure if it's going to go anywhere; haven't quite decided! Basically, Castle has fears and Kate tries to alleviate them.

Beautiful and Lost reviews
I let my imagination run with this one; it's my take on what could have happened at the conclusion of Always, when Esposito and Ryan went their separate ways. This is my first fanfic, please let me know what you think : Thanks to macahol84 for checking this out and giving me advice! The inspiration for this song is loosely based on the song Beautiful and Lost by Ron Pope.
