Author has written 19 stories for Scarlet Pimpernel.

I did not realise until recently how very many people have written their own "Scarlet Pimpernel" stories. I have really enjoyed some of them and want to join in, though I write for my own pleasure. Although the original books are an acquired taste, especially nowadays, I still love the ones which dwell on the relationship between Percy and Marguerite, and - partly because I am not a good enough writer to plan and sustain a plot - my own stories look at aspects of that relationship.

ADDED March 2015: Since my first posts I have been delighted to see from the reviews that other people have enjoyed my stories; to everyone who has commented, thank you for taking the trouble.

July 2017: Although my ideas for stories seem to be drying up now - I think I might have "explored" the relationship between Percy and Marguerite to death! - it is very encouraging to know that there are still people enjoying them. My thanks to everyone who has posted reviews or 'favourited' me or my stories.

For the Man Who Has Known Her Love by Little Obsessions reviews
"He swallows it as if he wears a garrotte in place of a cravat. It jams in his throat every time he must look upon the man from the better end of a rapier or down the barrel of a pistol and know that it is not a justifiable reason to kill him..." Percy considers his likeness to his greatest enemy.

En garde reviews
A short story set some years after the time when events in "The Scarlet Pimpernel" take place. A Blakeney Manor scene, with no smut and not much fluff, it's a slight thing...

A new beginning
Percy and Marguerite, again. Baroness Orczy's characters, my 'take' on them. I am still filling in the gaps (as I see them) in the account of their reconciliation. Please be aware that this is less fluff than usual, more smut.

This is the final part: I've spun it out as long as I can but decided I had to bring it to the inevitable conclusion. This is my version of what Baroness Orczy omitted to show us: the full reconciliation between Percy and Marguerite at the end of "The Scarlet Pimpernel".

I admit I'm spinning this one out: the full reconciliation between Percy and Marguerite. Baroness Orczy shows us almost nothing of it and yet it is such an essential part of their story. I'm spinning it out because I don't want to reach the end! And because I don't have any ideas for what might follow. So I'm only slowly working towards the inevitable conclusion...

Doubts aboard the 'Day Dream' reviews
This follows the scene in "Somewhere in the middle", and picks up from where "I shall be for ever in your debt" left off. I'm hoping, eventually, to explore completely the reconciliation between Percy and Marguerite, which - very frustratingly, I've always felt - Baroness Orczy omitted to do at the end of "The Scarlet Pimpernel". It's fluff, of course.

I shall be for ever in your debt reviews
This very short "ficlet" follows on directly from my "Something in the middle", after the escape at the end of Baroness Orczy's first Pimpernel book. It is much more lighthearted than my last post "All was not yet complete"; I am sorry if that was too close to home for some.

Shore Leave reviews
A short sequel to "Percy takes a bath". Sir Percy must break the news to his wife that the "Daydream" needs repairs ... Warning: FLUFF. Of course.

The Turn of the Tide reviews
More of the usual. With added fainting (which I'm still not sure I should have put in - she's no wimp, Marguerite Blakeney, is she? But it seemed kind-of right.)

A pleasant surprise for Percy Blakeney. Schmaltz again I'm afraid - but at least it's spellchecked...

The billet-doux reviews
Percy Blakeney writes to his wife. Not a long letter, but one which requires immediate attention. Unfortunately I don't seem to be able to write anything but fluff - you have been warned!

Jealousy, angst, desire - unfortunately all of the fluffy variety (again). Not demanding in any way, just escapist daydreaming.
