Author has written 37 stories for Mentalist.

I've learned that when you take down your portfolio, the follows and faves for those stories disappear. So sorry if you've marked something in the past. My bad.

"Readers are often fans of authors, but I, myself, am a fan of readers. They are the ones who breathe life into the pages that we give birth to, after all." --Janae Mitchell

My favorite in my portfolio is probably "White Out", followed by "Ready or Not". Both could use some rewriting but for the most part they're acceptable. Funny coincidence about "White Out" - I picked a flight number out of thin air and it was the same flight number used for Lisbon's flight out of Florida - Flight 407!

Golden reviews
Tag for 06x22 - Jane has time to think while waiting for the TSA's torture for messing with one of their airplanes. No, I don't own The Mentalist or any of these characters. They are firmly in Mr. Heller's highly capable hands and he's taking very good care of them for us.

Time & Place reviews
Tag 06x20 SPOILERS - Jane isn't sure what noble means, but he does understand love. Why can't Lisbon understand it just like he does? (This story is the result of my frustrations with these two intelligent idiots.) T for language. May go M later.

This has been REOPENED! Drabbles of Friendship, Bromance and Romance. Rated K for now. May go T later. We'll see.

Too Soon To Go reviews
This is a reposting of a one-shot with a looooong history. Jane discovers he's not the only one to have lived a very hard life. Cherished children are lost from loving parents all the time. Jane's epiphany is blinding. By the way, I don't own the characters and am only writing for self-amusement. Hope you enjoy too. See Make-Mine-A-Kiaora's "Aftermath" for the sequel to this story.

Could Be reviews
Jane's malaria - contracted in Venezuela - has relapsed, and the 104 degree fever is making him see things. Could be it's for the best. I do not own the Mentalist characters or anything. Just writing for fun. And because Heller isn't giving us a Jane/Lisbon romance SO FAR. Guess we have to do it ourselves, eh? Thanks, Cumberland River Relic & Make-Mine-A-Kiaora, for friendship!

Frank has a job to do and he's gonna do it...no matter WHAT Patrick Jane thinks! That doesn't mean it will be easy. Jane is one slick opponent! BTW, as much as I wish and pray and plead and beg, Team Heller won't give me rights to The Mentalist and the wonderful characters involved. I adore them, but I don't own them. Nope.

Double Drabbles reviews
Collection of paired Drabbles, because sometimes 100 words just aren't enough. :) In my brightest fantasy, I write for Team Heller and all these characters are mine. Alas, however, in real life I'm just a romance writer who doesn't own ANY of these characters. I make no money off these ramblings of mine. For entertainment purposes only (as CRR likes to say in his Author Notes.)
