Author has written 16 stories for Foyle's War, Alibi, 2003, and Bleak House, 2005.

I think it was 2004 when I discovered Foyle's War on the 'History Canada' cable channel, and then on PBS, and knew it was something quite special. My son, a teenager at the time, can only blame himself, when one day he pointed out to me 'that actor from Foyle's War' on a rerun episode of Frost (starring David Jason). It was his remark that started me on an investigation into the work of 'that actor' and what is, at this point, a decade-long fascination with the roles of Michael Kitchen.

When I delved into his career I realized I'd seen, through the years, every screen performance of his that one could see in Canada, from The Brontës of Haworth to Dandelion Dead to Enchanted April, to Out of Africa and Oliver Twist. The man is definitely Quietly Enigmatic (See what I did there? No? Google it.), and mesmerising in his subtle performances. Also ...quite a clever bloke; irons in the fire, and all that.

I've been writing for enjoyment since my preteen years, took a 17-year hiatus to 'gather material and life experience' (marriage, children, various kinds of work, another degree, a new career) and then started again, working on short stories, pastiches and fan fiction. I've even been bashing away at a novel for quite a few years - but then, who isn't, eh?!

Thanks to everyone who takes the time to read - and does me the honour of reviewing - my stuff!

Reviews are nice. Really like reviews.

Reviews? Yes, very much appreciate 'em. Life's blood to a writer, actually.

Did I mention that it really only takes a minute to post a review? :o)

Thanks!

The Foyle's War Collection by TartanLioness reviews
This will be a collection of my responses to the 100fanfic prompt. Each chapter will be named and numbered after the prompt and the ficlets will be stand-alones and thus not connected to each other. I hope you enjoy them. Marked as complete because there is not an ongoing story and each of the ficlets are finished pieces.

Yes, I Will by MyMadness reviews
Marcey had called him later. Of course she had. And Greg had trusted that she would. Although certainly, not just anyone would have known what those three quick flashes of her tail lights meant as she drove away.  But the flashes had said, 'Yes. I will.'

Still Being Young by MyMadness reviews
Still being young, Sam let herself believe the world was possible, because of something as simple as the hand he'd placed on her arm and had not moved. A story that begins as Foyle comes home from America. A new chapter at last? Can it be? Is it worth reading? Anyone who still cares about this story has been left waiting. How long will Foyle keep Sam doing the same?

After watching the episode, The Russian House, set in June of 1945, I couldn't help but imagine that there must have been some history between Foyle and Elsa. She was quite willing to help him with information, at some risk to herself, and clearly she must have done so in the past. This is my version of their back story.
