Author has written 19 stories for Warehouse 13.

Recent changes in my life will make the present story ('Sheep') more sporadic than before. I apologize in advance and will do my best to work around work and travel.

Ironically, I don't watch television very often. Funny, that. This was all an experiment that grew all on its own and I assure you my comfort zone has been pushed far beyond that which I ever thought possible. Feed back is always appreciated. It keeps me honest.

I've lived many places and experienced many things, both good and bad. Some things we recover from, others we can only try to survive. However, I'm merely a small dot, in a small, quiet place in the world. I like that there are still places that I can leave my car unlocked and running while I go into the post office, (yes, I still use the post office on occasion). I have to drive around people that just stopped in the middle of the road to chat with the neighbor and 'catch up' on the local gossip, and they wave to me when I sneak by. Or better yet, bike or walk with the dog to the post office doing my errands and Joe Smith waves to me, says, "Beautiful day, eh?" while sitting in his front lawn enjoying the day, watching the world go by. He reminds me to slow down and do the same sans front lawn. I'm not that social. I just happen to have a brain that thinks faster than I'm able to keep up with. Occasionally I can slow it down long enough to create some semblance of order out of it.

I have received a number of wonderfully warm, honest and heartfelt responses, both in reviews and private messages. To those I have not said this to, let me say now, I am truly humbled. I appreciate the time, thought and effort you take and thank you for it. I am amazed that these few words often arrive at the most remarkable times. Perhaps there really is no such thing as coincidence. To those silent and enduring readers, I thank you as well. Without the two, there would not be the whole. You are a significant part of that whole.

The stories:

Earlier stories can stand on their own, but they inadvertently turned into a series. If you have not read the beginning, you may miss details by the end or be completely lost. This is not a ploy to make anyone read them all, just a forewarning. So haphazardly did they become I had to number them. Be assured any references within the world of music or literature is by no means an arbitrary one. They serve a purpose.

If you enjoy them, I'm pleased. If not, I thank you for trying and hope you find something else more to your taste. One often sees a boa constrictor digesting an elephant when others see a hat. I look for sheep sleeping in boxes.

Remember: Keep crying, keep laughing. Without one, we cannot have the other.

A Sheep in the Tree (13) reviews
The honeymoon never ends - or does it? Decisions made, decisions changed. Perspective gained and lost again. Complications arise testing boundaries all around. Finally having come to terms with the past can they come to terms with their future? Hopefully, with a few laughs along the way.
