Author has written 9 stories for Castle.

So, I'm a high school teacher, trying to be a writer.

I've been writing on and off for several years but haven't ever completed anything - life always seems to get in the way. But I've decided recently to give it a more serious go and that has brought me to start writing some fanfics.

I love this medium because it's light and fun and it's helping me to work on dialogue and a little bit of character development. And because I love Castle so much I have a million little 'what if' ideas floating around my head that just need to get out!

The one thing I've definitely learned so far is that for me it's easy to come up with story ideas, but then it seems to take so long to get them down on the page. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, often reading, re-reading, and re-re-reading my stories, then editing, re-editing and re-re-editing. I've also learned that I like words...maybe too much so...like maybe I'm using too many of them...

I hope my stories will either inspire or entertain readers. I'm really open to and encouraging of reviews - my goal is to improve my writing so hearing from others about what they think works or doesn't work is really important to me.

You can follow me on Twitter: @FictionalAnna ...though I've given up Twitter for my new year's resolution, so I may not be there...

Thanks for reading!
