Author has written 28 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.

CBI Australia by FiascoWay reviews
The Mentalist re-imagined as having been set in Australia. Post Red John but with the familiar CBI Crew. Patrick Jane returns to the CBI after a long absence to finally confront life after Red John and discover how Lisbon fits into that life. Being in Australia, thing's are somewhat more laid back than in the canon version.

Beyond Measure by inkstainedfingers97 reviews
Lisbon could barely believe she was still alive, let alone that Jane had kissed her—several times, actually—and that she'd agreed to come over to his hotel room for a bath. Especially that she'd agreed to come over to his hotel room for a bath. Sequel to "The Tiger and the Lamb."

Mr and Mrs Jane by nic73 reviews
A collection of one shots dipping in and out of the life of Mr and Mrs Jane ( Patrick and Teresa). There will be mixture of genres. *Latest chapter* I have had a couple of reviews that have stated that they have found it hard to understand, I re-read and have re-written part of it and hopefully it has made things easier, if you want to try again and I apologise for the mistakes.

The Tangled Web by Thorntons reviews
Jane suspected there was more to Madeline Hightower than met the eye but why was she so important to Red John? That was the burning question... had she discovered a secret organisation and how did Red John fit in with this? Originally a one shot to Red Queen - now extended through to Scarlet Ribbons.

Rear Window by wimmer511 reviews
Jane and Lisbon are requested on a murder case in D.C. right after the events of Blue Bird. Jane is forced to solve the case from the hotel. He and Lisbon navigate their new relationship in this tricky situation. Very loosely based on one of my favorite movies by the same name. Pike will be in this story, but very little.

A series of stand alone one shots examining the complex and fascinating Jane/Lisbon relationship as set forth on the show. I attempted to keep them in canon during the show, but now I will try to keep the new installments in the proper time frame as our couple continues their life together.

The Truth of How I Feel by shallowdweller reviews
An experiment. I have thought endlessly about how Patrick Jane's feelings must have changed over the course of the series. I'd love to explore it in depth, but who has the time? Would I be able to capture those moments where something changed, though? One by one, like jewels in a necklace? We shall see. If you like drabbles, tell me what you think.

Enouement by Hayseed Socrates reviews

Red Wren by HarmonicLark reviews
"I want my life to be free. Free from my past." Teresa Lisbon is aware that the pieces don't fit. Patrick Jane is not himself, and it worries her. The picture constructs itself, but not before Jane has done the irreversible. Budding Jisbon, dark.

Drunken Uncle by Hayseed Socrates reviews
Jane gives Rigsby a hand - Jane/Lisbon if you squint. Just a little one shot from Rigsby's POV. Inspired by the time Rigsby referred to Jane as their "drunken uncle." Light inner monologue with a touch of bittersweet angst. I've added a sequel chapter that is set in the post S7 finale future - from young Annie Lisbon's point of view (Stan's daughter) - pretty fluffy stuff.

The rational thing to do—the safe thing to do—would be to walk away from Jane as though this moment had never happened.

Connection by hardly loquacious reviews
Over the years, after a tough day she'd also gotten used to a cup of tea and an absolutely-not-hovering consultant (a compensation the Washington Sheriff's office had never boasted). It seemed that the FBI came with that service though (more than compensating for the occasional mortal danger). Lisbon and Jane try to deal with their shifting relationship. Sequel to Consummate.

Bleeding Hearts by Wandergirl108 reviews
Sequel to my fanfic "REaDy or Not, Here I Come", this tells of Lisbon's recovery from what Red John did to her in that story…and some other things, maybe. ;D Some bits WILL be glossed over or phoned in, but what's important is that this bridges the gap between the aforementioned story and my grand finale, "Ruby Crown". Remember canon goes only through S4E9 and my prior fanfics.

Snow-white by guineapiggie reviews
Post 6x01 "Her green eyes still seemed too dark to him, and he hated Red John even more for every shadow he had cast in them. But she didn't know that and he wouldn't tell her. Because knowing just how much he loved her and yet knowing it could never be enough, not even that, not even if she could love him back - it would break her heart. And that would break his all over again."

Cinnamon Candles by inkstainedfingers97 reviews
He really didn't look good. She'd seen him tired before, of course, but even on previous occasions when he'd gone through periods of insomnia, he managed not to let it affect his appearance much beyond appearing attractively rumpled instead of immaculately pressed.
