Author has written 10 stories for Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew, and Janet Evanovich.
So, when reading the world of Plum, I discovered I love Ranger and Steph together. That wasn't happening in the series the way I wanted. I was getting frustrated before I remembered, I used to read fanfiction. I bet there's still plenty out there to give me the romance I want. And boy did I find it! I'm still finding it, and it's great. I got hooked, but I also wanted to write my own Ranger/Steph story.
I got so excited I wrote my first fanfic, A New Kind of Life in a week. It was absolutely exciting to have such a drive to write again. It was great. I'm a Babe completely. Now on a whole, I feel Joe is just better off as a good friend for Steph. Not that it's stopped me from making him a bad guy in Rediscovery. Admittedly, he's not THE bad guy, just not portrayed well at all.
Now, well after I was underway writing fanics, I discovered groups where there are wonderful ladies who love Ranger as much as I do. In these groups I managed to figure out what a Beta is. Since 2 fics were done and a third waiting completion, along with a 4th well under way, I decided not to get a Beta. I am all for constructive criticism, so feel free to leave it in a review. Don't be shy about it, just be nice doing it. At the moment, I have no plans to go back and do any editing, but it's on the table for a future project. I'm sure you'll all see plenty of mistakes so just know they are all mine.
