Author has written 22 stories for Janet Evanovich.

After careful thought, I left the site in 2014. It was because of abuse from some readers and other writers by the end of my stay.

As long as my stories continue to entertain, they will remain here.

They will also remain on my web/blog site and on Scribd as well. See www.mandycoltonfiction.com

It was fun while it lasted, I learned much, and I enjoyed all my reader friends very much during my stay. I'll remember you fondly!

For updates on my book releases, visit my web/blog site at www.mandycolton.com

My first book, Way to Go is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million.

The best to all!

Mandy Colton

Author Way to Go released May 2015

Way to Roll is due to release January 2016

Bounty's Song, a romance/humor novella set is due to be released winter 2016 (One story will be an ode to J.E.'s Ranger)

Note- Those who abuse are the few, but they are the ones that do the greatest damage and cause the majority to lose when some very good writers make the decision to leave. The community can help by reporting abuse and speaking up when they see it. Most important, report abuse to the site administrators and ask them to disallow guest reviewing which would stop the majority of attacks on writers. Guest reviews allow for the cut and slash behavior of some of the crazier elements in each fandom. Other sites have adopted that policy and readers and writers are brought together in a much more harmonious way.

El Diablo Viste De Rojo No Negro by flyingundertheradar reviews
Now that Ranger is in prison he has plenty of time to reflect on his actions. Inspired by Basketcase and her two stories, "Redemption" and "Absolution".

Deserves What He Gets by NeedWings2Fly reviews
Babe story. Morelli living up to his genes. Not Morelli or Helen friendly. Morelli's final outcome goes to Basktcase.

DANGEROUS GAMES by LnBen reviews
Ranger has a secret life...and Stephanie wants to part of it. This story will challenge some readers and will completely turn off others. That's ok. Diversity in all things is a key to a full life. At least that's my mantra. This story does not follow canon, not FF canon or the original Evonavich canon. It is a journey of self exploration by characters familiar to all of us.

Brace for Babe reviews
This is an AU story partially published under GoVordo. Per many requests over the past year to see it completed, this is a Christmas present to fans of basketcse. Based on a real TV show, Stephanie and Ranger don't meet in the same way as the JE books which makes their dynamic complicated, humorous, dark, and sexy. Rated M.

The Absolution reviews
This is the sequel to Redemption. As in the first, there will be a high degree of angst in the beginning. If you made it through the last roller coaster ride, just continue to hang on. We'll hopefully all have enjoyed the rush in the end. Happy reading!

Redemption reviews
This story has been done by a couple writers here. It's about needing change and recovery. I wanted mine to tell a similar story, but wanted it to be unique. Set current in the JE book series. Takes place nearly three years into Stephanie's career as a bo

More Big Surprises reviews
This is the sequel to Big Surprises. A kooky AU story in the Plum world. It is a Babe HEA. Not much Cupcake abuse, but plenty of Helen abuse. This Stephanie is fun and Ranger is a bit different. Lots of LOL Humor, but there is a bit of angst as well in th

Dance with El Diablo reviews
This is my first Halloween tale. It's an AU Babe hea, sort of. A mish-mash of a couple movie themes. You know I like those. It is funny and then very evil and angsty before the end. I warned you. Don't grouch to me later! Cupcake and Helen neutral.

Big Surprises reviews
This a little humorous AU Babe HEA. It reads like a One for the Money Redux. It was a special request from a fellow author and buddy on the site and was loads of fun to write. Hope you enjoy it too. Cupcake and Helen are just mildly abused.

Humility reviews
This is my first Cupcake HEA. Don't say blech yet, Babe's! It's based on Book Seventeen and the vordo. I hated the way that the characters acted in that book except for Morelli and he was sweet and playful and fun through the whole book and he got the big

This story begins with angst and then ramps up to mayhem and lots of laughs. Stephanie Plum has changed and she is slowly driving Ranger crazy. Lots of humor and crazy antics. Eventual HEA. T Rating for language only.

Twelve And A Half Weeks reviews
This is a combo of two movies, Magic Mike and 91/2 Weeks Ranger and Stephanie style. It's set after the deal is made, but before it happens in JE's book 8. It is sexy and fun with lots of hot MM and a new cutie character of mine.

Love Interrupted reviews
This story is about Ranger's worst nightmare come true. This is dark and off canon. It does have an unusual HEA. Less of the humor and more of the angst you guys are used to from me.

Operation Ranger Assault reviews
What if Stephanie meets Ranger and is attracted to him from the very beginning? What might happen without the Morrelli baggage. This is a more humorous and lighter story for me. There is mature content.
