Author has written 36 stories for Walking Dead.

I blame (or credit) a writer friend for turning me on to Walking Dead fic and inspiring me to write some of my own. The only drawback seems to be how hard it is to free my head up to do my day job.

At this point I write solely in the Walking Dead fandom. I find myself writing in the interstices of the public story, the little bits and pieces that happen in the down-times when our eyes aren't on the characters. I'm not sure, but it might be because I can hardly watch the parts of the show where they're slaughtering walkers, and can't imagine actually having to write that.

These days I'm primarily posting my fic at Nine Lives, which is an archive solely for fics involving the Caryl pairing, but eventually I usually end up posting them here and at AO3 as well.

Losing a child can take a mother to the very edge. Luckily for Carol, Daryl Dixon is right there to help her fight her way back. Nothing is ever straightforward now that the dead walk the earth, so how will they cope when those they'd thought lost forever, suddenly return?

Honorable Intentions by whowhatsitwhich reviews
He knows this isn't a good idea. They're not his and never will be. He's not the kind of man to let a little thing like feelings change his mind...but walking away from these two might be harder than he thought. Mostly canon compliant with a few AU tweaks...beginning in Season One.

Torn In Two by amber24-03 reviews
"Wonder what Daryl would think." Carol jolted then, the name unexpected in her ears. She looked down at the blonde who smiled up at her, knowingly. "Why would Daryl care?" (Winner of "Best Nickname" in the 4theloveofCARYL Writing Contest. THANK YOU to everyone who voted. It is such an honor!)

Deep Down In The Hollow Ground by Ravenesque2 reviews
No one is quite sure how much time has passed since the fall of the prison. All they know is the reality of always moving on, always surviving, whatever cost it might bring. At least they mostly found each other, but for those they've lost along the way, there is a chasm that can barely be filled. Caryl story.

True Friendship by Elle Gardner reviews
It started w/ a supply run and a little stress relief. It grew into something more. This is where you figure out who your friends are. Friendships change more when Carol gets into the mix of things. She's just their kind of girl. This story contains slash, if it is not your thing, then just move along. Ch 1 is T, Chs 2 are M... well it all just gets dirtier as the story goes on.

Bad Luck by EleanorK reviews
He thought, almost lovingly, of his own bunk back at the prison, with the piles of random blankets they'd accumulated, in runs and in searching through the grounds. How much warmer it was. But he'd never spent a night in his bunk with Carol being so short and pissed off right across from him. - takes place between Season 3-4, while still in the prison.

Green Eyes reviews
Started for the USS Caryl's "Emotions" challenge (but not finished in time for deadline). Carol wants what's best for Daryl, even if that means someone other than herself. Daryl thinks that's about the dumbest thing ever. Rated T for Dixon mouth.

Cold Regret reviews
A snippet based on the promo from S4x10, "Inmates." Daryl just doesn't have it in him to go on. Rated T for language.

Leather reviews
Written for the USS Caryl's 1st Word Prompt Fanfiction/Fanart Challenge, prompt "leather." Daryl doesn't know when Carol's birthday is, but figures he's already missed at least one. Surprisingly not kinky, or even smutty.

The Way to Carnegie Hall reviews
Follow-up to my story "A Song Incomplete", but can be read as a stand-alone. Written in response to requests for "more practice." To paraphrase Tom Lehrer, this is "smut, and nothing but." Planned as a series of Caryl one-shots, will be added to when I get inspired.

My take on the events of S3 The Suicide King/Home/I Ain't a Judas. The title comes from Sally Fingerett's song, "Home is Where the Heart Is."

Hitch reviews
(Originally published as "Spy Games") AU Caryl fic, in which working man Daryl accepts a ride from a troubled, mysterious, and beautiful woman, and has his quiet, predictable life turned on its ear. My first attempt at AU.

Backstage at the Bardic Circle reviews
How Daryl Dixon ended up reading World's Longest Poem in front of an audience of friends, and did not fall flat on his ass in the process. Companion piece to my story, Evergreen, which you need to have read for this to make sense.

Superhero reviews
A slice of life, time frame indeterminate, but probably AU or post-4x08 and some future reunion. Written because all the mutual self-denial sometimes gets on my nerves. May be part of something larger in the future, but for now...

Watching Carol reviews
He's always watching her, even when she's not aware of it, and it's not creepy at all. Begins between S2 & 3. Rated M for language and smut.

Before It Breaks reviews
Written for a call for entries on the USS Caryl, re: Carol's storyline in S4. No happy endings here, sorry. I don't know what's going to happen (I'm not even sure I believe this is how things went down, at all): this is just one possible take on Carol's motivations and how she's feeling, having been banished from the prison. Lyric is from Brandi Carlile's "Before It Breaks."
