Author has written 12 stories for Perry Mason.

I may dabble otherwise but P&D were a couple and I try to work within the quirky, often contradictory framework of the series/movies. I'm devoted to writing to the characters; visualizing them saying each line, at their particular age, as I write. TV of the 1950s/60s gave no evidence of it but films of that era made clear that unmarried sex was a fact. (Think 1959's, "North by Northwest.") In 1967 D&P were 45 & 50 respectively, they would have been enjoying intimacy.

TCOT The Day They Met--Works with all. This is the only way I have ever envisioned them meeting; in the office.

TCOT Evil Eight--My best attempt at explaining those eight years; works with all.

TCOT Missed Chance--Alternative attempt to explain the 8-years & their relationship, which some maintain was chaste. The latter makes it a stand-alone.

TCOT Telltale Kiss--Explaining the courtroom kiss in "The Tell Tale Talk Show Host," which seemed so late in the game; works with all.

TCOT Defiant Della--Again an attempt to explain something from the movies that is just hanging out there; works with all.

TCOT Sorrowful Secretary--Based on the fact that viewers are supposed to suspect that Kaitlynn Parrish is Perry's daughter.

TCOT Lost Love Labor--When the series played with Della and Perry's relationship they did it better than the movies, which lacked a certain touch. Consequently we are left with plenty of moments like Perry saying he and Laura had been together 30 years before when it should have been 35.

"Perry Mason The Woman Behind the Man"--stand alone, since they don't get together in this until "TCOT Weary Watchdog."

TCOT Fraudulent Fireworks, works with all.

TCOT Jilted Junior, Works with all and is in progress...

TCOT Wondering Secretary, pretty much works with all.

TCOT Admirable Admirer, Works with all but "Missed Chance" and "Woman Behind the Man." Based on the PM movie, "TCOT Scandalous Scoundrel."

Perry Mason TCOT Wondering Secretary reviews
*What* was Perry Mason thinking in TCOT Wandering Widow? Not even Della Street knows. And considering, I don't think it's an accident that she's not in this episode!

Perry Mason TCOT Sorrowful Secretary reviews
This is an addendum to TCOT Heartbroken Bride. Perry Mason...how could you? Is she or isn't Kaitlynn Parrish his daughter. The consensus seems to be that she is. Is there anything that can make such a travesty right? As usual, only the utterly perfect Della Street knows for sure. There is Spice.

Perry Mason TCOT Fraudulent Fireworks reviews
What happened that July 4th weekend in 1985, shortly before Perry Mason came home to L.A. to defend his girl Della Street? It's spicy in a short section but is laid out as a single, long chapter.

I started this in "Sorrowful Secretary" and finish the idea here but what happened between the Perry Mason, Della Street, Laura triangle in 1987? A tiny bit spicy.

Perry Mason TCOT Missed Chance reviews
What if Della STreet and Perry Mason were only friends until she was arrested for murder? I don't believe it, btw-it's pretty clear they had a decades-long relationship. But there are those who believe. So here's another take on that 8 yr separation we all seem to hate. SPICE ALERT. Last 2 chapters. :)

What kind of tragedy would have torn Perry Mason from Della Street for almost 8 years? I've always hated that separation because it is inconsistent with the characters and story. I wrote this to make myself feel better. All critiques welcome!

How did Della Street come to work for Perry Mason? This is how I envision it-chose the date based on Della's "over 40" years comment in TCOT Defiant Daughter, 1990.
