Author has written 30 stories for Mentalist.
The Mentalist series compelled me to write fan fiction for the first time in decades. (Thank heavens fanfiction.net didn't exist in the '70's, because I would have flunked out of college writing and reading Star Trek fan fiction.) I keep wanting to continue the conversations after an episode ends, or fill in more back-story of the characters. I enjoy reading others' fan fiction and hope people enjoy what I have to offer. This site may well save me from alienating friends and family who, strangely, are not as obsessed with the characters and show. It's a pleasure to be here!
My TV tastes run toward science fiction and Star Trek (an original Trekker), good crime/mystery shows (The Mentalist, 24, The Prisoner, House), and cop shows (e.g., NYPD Blue, Homicide, Hill Street Blues). I used to write fan fiction in the 70's before it really existed. I've just stumbled into it again with The Mentalist and this site. I am especially fond of the mysteries, crime, hurt/comfort, and friendship genres. But anything can be done well and I also like romance, drama, adventure, and humor. I am most comfortable writing about mysteries, hurt/comfort, and friendship, particularly when I have ideas to contribute beyond just the character interactions.
I have one husband, two (grown) kids, two cats, and an 18-sided house. All the rest is subject to change without notice. Among other interests, I designed our last two houses, enjoy gardening (we spent all the money building the house, so doing our own landscaping was inescapable), and enjoy reading. I was a manager in the health care field before retiring.
