Author has written 47 stories for Mentalist, Hell on Wheels, and Sherlock.

My entire life can basically be summed up by this quote I found on an e-card: "I wish my house wasn't always such a disaster, but people won't stop writing books and making cheap wine. Assholes."

I'm a married twentysomething and the mother of two beautiful little girls. To support my shopping habits, I teach high school. Occasionally, I masquerade as a published author.

I'm obsessive about new interests, read like a fiend, pretend I like running, adore my family, and am generally always a little sarcastic. I also have a large and angry cat who has managed to convince the general public that she is possessed by Satan.

Anywho.

It has been many, many years since I've been on ff.net, though I used to lurk here like it was my job. It's nice to be back. I'm on Tumblr as starry19 as well, if you're into reading rambling thoughts and seeing gifs of things that entertain me. Oh, and if you're extra bored, I'm starrynineteen on Twitter.

If you're looking for any of my stories that aren't The Mentalist related, I've put them on AO3.

Dates and Denials reviews
5x03 Tag – "She fixed him with a stare that she usually reserved for lying suspects that had pushed her buttons in one way or another. "For one, I didn't go on a date."

Absolution and Eggs reviews
Set post 4x24. "He realized anew what his leaving had done to her. She was the same beautiful Lisbon, but different. She had a new fragility around her, like she was nearly ready to shatter. Her cheekbones were hollowed; her collarbone would cut glass. In a moment, he understood: he had broken her heart. He was still breaking her heart."
