Author has written 13 stories for Criminal Minds.

Hello,

My name is, of course, Shelly Hoffer. I love to write. In fact, I have been writing stories ever since I can remember. I have written all kinds but I really love writing episodes for TV shows and sequels for movies. Maybe someday, if I ever get them typed, I will put them all on here.

My favorite TV shows are, of course, Criminal Minds, NCIS, and The Walking Dead. I love fantasy and action genres. My favorite author is Terry Goodkind and his The Sword of Truth series. My all time favorite movie is Star Wars: Episode 5 The Empire Strikes Back (the three originals being soooo much better than the new ones!) I also love horror movies, but so many of them don't even scare me - most I find hilarious, but I love being scared even if I do have a high threshold for fear.

Let's see, what else? I love to laugh (even if my writing doesn't show it) I love messing with people as I do have a very twisted sadistic streak! (Just ask some of my friends and my sisters) *evil grin

Anyway - if you're reading this because you have found and read my story - Thank You! Please leave reviews (authors love them even if they are short) A few seconds to let me know what you think would be awesome!!

I have a new webiste that shows all of my stories and some the characters: thetalesofhoffer (dot) weebly(dot) com (no spaces, of course) It is under construction, but will be finished soon

Night Music by Melody Harper reviews
Parenthood is hard when each case steals a piece of you, leaving something of itself instead…embedded deep…the stench of tragedy. Sometimes you have to find a way to let it go…let it out…save yourself from being crippled by it.
