Author has written 70 stories for Xena: Warrior Princess, Rizzoli & Isles, Guiding Light, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

Hi there! Thanks for checking out my bio. Let's see... I make my home in Southeastern Michigan with my hubby, daughter and menagerie of pets. As for stories, I began writing at age 10 after listening to my grandmother talk about her journey to America from England. I've got an Associates degree in psychology and journalism and now have a full time career doing copy writing for businesses. When I'm not writing, I enjoy an array of music, movies and painting.

I do fan-ish, bad quality fan art too, as well as running my own fanfiction site (http://www.cnscaldron.com) which hosts all my works across a number of fandoms (mostly femme slash). You'll find more fic there that's not posted here (as well as 'director cut' versions of many of the stories at fanfiction.net. There are some stories I can't post here at all because 1) there's just too many and 2) it would never get past the rating requirement. So if you're a grown-up then there might be fic out there you'll enjoy.

I'm also a founding member of the Ultimate Fan Fiction Directory (http://www.xenafanfiction.info/) that's home to one of the largest fan fiction directories in the Xenaverse. While I don't do the daily updates anymore (that's overseen by HeartbrokenBard and her reporters), I still archive the 'What's new page' for each month.

Last but not least, I'm also the executive producer of Watchers: The Virtual Series (http://www.thewatcherscouncil.net/). It's a VS involving Willow, Giles, Faith, Kennedy, Robin and Andrew who set up shop in Cleveland along with fellow watcher Rowena Allister to rebuild the Watchers council. Our creative team ran the show for five years, and did six years worth of stories. So if you love the scoobies, you might want to check it out if you've got a few spare weeks on your hands. It'll take awhile to read it all, but hopefully you'll think it's worth it.

For those interested in allllllllll the stories I've done which can be found at cnscaldron.com, here they are. Some stories that appear here may be edited versions of the original or they might not appear here at all because of restrictions, which is all good and fine by me.

XENA FICTION

Subtext Reports: Those crazy posts about the episodes originally posted to the nutforum and saved here for posterity in their error riddled entirety (since they were written 'on the fly').

Homecoming Series: A series of five (not so short) stories about Xena and Gabrielle building their life together as a couple.

Magic Series: Janice Covington and Melinda Pappas find love as they uncover more writings of Gabrielle about her warrior princess.

Conversations by Campfire Series: Set during Season Four, parts of the episodes are worked into chats between Xena and Gab, particularly the subject of Najara and the bard.

Changes of Heart Series: My take on what happened after Gabby got Chakram'ed upside the head by Xena in the Season Five ender.

Bonding of Souls Series: This series picks up where 'Changes of Heart' ends with Xena and Gabby back together. Each 'episode' is an expansion of the episodes of Season Six.

Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace: How DID Ares get stuck in that tomb from the Xena Scrolls? This story answers that question.

The Play: Xena and Gabrielle have to play the leads in a performance for a ruthless king to save Salmoneus' neck. Unexpected consequences and confessions are the result.

The Queen, the Regent, the Warrior: Xena leaves Gabrielle in the care of the amazons, only to have Ephiny and Gabby fall in love. Xena does return and chaos and secret confessions follow.

The Contest: Ares and Aphrodite battle over Xena's spirit.

Loss of Virginity: Romantic musings from one of our gals.

Moment of Truth: Gabrielle does anything it takes to keep Xena out of a battle that's foretold to take the warrior princess' life.

Thank the Gods For Henbane: At an Amazon festival Gabrielle has one too many henbane brownies, which results in a funny and sexy night for Xena.

As It Should Be: The Queen gets taken by the Warrior Princess at the Amazon Village.

Family Ties: Xena takes Gabrielle back to home to spend a little time with the 'in-laws'.

Dueling Cousins: Xena's look-alike cousin, Sappho, has always been competitive but now the Tenth Muse wants the ultimate prize - Gabrielle.

The End: Alternate 'demise' of Xena and Gabrielle based on the Season Four crucifixion.

Truth or Dare: Sexy romp between Callisto and Gabrielle set during 'A Necessary Evil'

November 29th, 1942: A little romance fic between Janice and Mel.

Inside Outside: Set after the events of 'A Family Affair', it's a scene told through the eyes of four people - Gabrielle's Father, Mother, Gabrielle herself and Xena.

Something To Talk About: Xena and Gabrielle's friends are all surprised that the pair aren't lovers so they consider why not.

Henbane, Horsenappings and Other Obstacles: A 'murphy's law' comedy where everything that can go wrong for Xena and Gabby but, of course, they still end up saving the day.

All That Matters: During Gabrielle's birthday party in' Takes One To Know One', Xena reflects on her love for the bard.
Warlord: What if Gabrielle was actually the one behind all the folks who influenced Xena's journey toward good?
Have Yourself a Merry Little Solstice: A little Winter Solstice tale that's available in general (not lovers) and alternative (lovers).

Little Moments: A Day in the Desert: A tale told through the eyes of Janice and then Mel while on a dig.

Candy or Chaos: 'Classic Xena' general Halloween story with Xena and Gabby return for the Potiedaia Harvest Festival.

Conquering Heroine: Gabrielle is the Conqueror in this piece. How exactly? Give it a read and find out.

Watching and Waiting: Set after FIN II, Xena watches from afar as Gabrielle moves on with her life.

1971: Police Office Carol and Protestor Erin clash but find they're fighting for the same things. A short story based on my novel, 'One Belief Away'.

Making Sense: Set 10 years post finale, a brief encounter forces Willow and Buffy to look deeper into their relationship.

Making Plans: Spicier sequel to Making Sense with Buffy's thoughts on the 'morning after' that's a bit too warm for fanfiction(dot)net

Private Conversations: Set during season five, Willow and Tara do a little experimentation and magic in the bedroom, with unexpected results.

Anya's List: Convinced that D'Hoffryn is going to kill her, Anya makes a bucket list, but she needs Willow's help with number 8. Another one that's a bit too scorchy for this place.

Tough Love: Tara becomes the victim of a gay hate crime and the scoobies get a glimpse into the not so rosy side of Willow and Tara's life.

Ice Cream Dreams: So what if Xander's dream didn't end when he crawled into the back of his ice cream truck in the season four ender. (Pairing W/T/X) Not one for this fine place on the web.

Interview With A Vampire: Willow visits Angel after her 'black magic bender'.

You. Me. Formal Wear.: Xander is stuck for a date to his contractor's association so he turns to 'old reliable' with unexpected results.

It's What I Do: Set after season seven, 'Get it Done'. Willow and Buffy have a chat and Ole fashioned scoobie bonding.

Interlude: Set after Chosen and before our virtual season, Watchers.

Best Man Speech: Olivia tries to get to the heart of why Rafe dislikes her so much.

Carino: Nothing but some sexy smut so it can't go here. LOL

Frienemies: Upset that Natalia left her without a word, Olivia heads to ladies night to pick someone up only to find Doris who saves her from a mistake...or does she?

Merry Christmas Baby: A sexy sequel to my Christmas 2009 story, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” that's too hot for here.

In this traditional subtext story that's part French farce; part musical, Gabrielle has a Doppelganger, the Poetess Sappho. It's up to her, Xena and Aphrodite to guard Sappho during the 10th Muse Competition while repairing Sappho's damaged relationship with her lover, Ana, a woman, and bandmate, who's the spitting image of Xena.

This is a sequel to November 29th, 1942. Although you might enjoy that one too, it's not necessary to read it unless you want to. This time, it's Janice's birthday and she's not happy she's spent the evening in a restaurant waiting on Mel… but Pappas has a surprise that might make the wait worthwhile.

Matt? Really? reviews
Olivia decides to go out with Matt after Natalia has returned from her retreat, but Natalia has other plans for their evening. This story was written based on spoilers during the final weeks of Guiding Light so some of my 'guesses' were correct. Others were off based but hopefully entertaining just the same.

Violating the Rules reviews
Blis Fic. This story is set during the 'Year Later' time of GL's finale so fall/winter 2010. Blake is set to marry Frank, but she's has an interest in Mayor Wolfe, which is returned. In many ways it mirrors Olivia and Natalia's coupling who also play a role in this fic for Otalia fans .

Until Death reviews
Natalia married Frank and continued to work for Olivia, but desire wins out. This is not a happy romance story. It's smexy, sad and heartachey. If you like puppies, rainbows, sugar and spice in your Otalia fic this might not be for you. Since I couldn't decided on an ending I wrote six of them, although I find the first one is the most 'accurate' in my mind. You've been warned. :)

This contains parts of a scene from Adventures in the Sin Trade Part II. I'm only using them for a hurt/comfort story. If those kind of stories upset you, you may want to skip this all together. It's my take on the crucifixion scene in Season Four.

One Kiss reviews
After catching up on many of the back episodes and highlights I thought I'd write a story from one of the characters perceptions. Olivia and Natalia have about as much in common as they have in contrast with each other. So see if you can figure out who's 'talking' without cheating and going to the bottom of the page. It's one of two so your odds of being right are 50%.

I became convinced before the Indian eps of S4 that Gabrielle and Xena had become lovers. I was asked 'If they are lovers, when did it happen? Maybe it would make a good story'. Thank you Peggy for your brilliant idea. This is a heartfelt & smexy tale set at the end of 'A Family Affair' & seen through the eyes of Gabby, Xena & Gab's parents.

Maybe someday I'll write that.
