Author has written 14 stories for Castle.

"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt." - Abraham Lincoln.

Words to live by? In the context of this site perhaps, in regard to my own competency: better to not write and be thought a non-writer, than to actually write and be judged incompetent.

If you have somehow stumbled upon this profile it is probably in response to a question: who the hell is this jackass? If I have offended you in any way, well I apologize, it likely was not my intent at all. Though I am at times such a jackass I cannot deny, nor would I want to: you is who you is, if you aren't who are you?

I wrote a profile here originally in response to a prompt from an author, and rewrote it as the result of a response from another. I will do neither the disservice of naming them here - and associating them in even the most vague way with this entire mess of text.

Live: Memphis

Work: Finance

Education: Never taken a finance class and proud of it ;-)

Need: More input, hence the J - Johnny 5, 'Short Circuit'

Fun: Reading, Ranting, Rithmatic

Can't write my way out of a paper bag, even if armed with a sharpened fountain pen. Though now I have actually posted a couple of stories, well... there is copious proof you can judge for yourselves :-)

He saw the glint, he knew what it was, but he didn't react fast enough. Well, what would have happened if he reacted a split second sooner? What would have happened if Richard Castle got to Kate Beckett before the bullet did?
