Author has written 6 stories for West Wing, and Newsroom.

"Snapshots" is on hiatus until further notice. I don't have time to write, and I've kind of lost my inspiration anyway. Sorry! I hate when authors don't finish their work, and now I've turned into one of those people. Maybe I'll finish it someday. In the meantime, just watch The Newsroom.

Formerly longtallsally.

I remember watching The West Wing with my dad when it originally aired, but I was too young to really understand it. Then I rediscovered it in reruns, and fell in love. I'm not sure how many people still read, write, or follow West Wing FanFiction anymore, but that's ok. I just write for the enjoyment, and send it out into the void. That said, if you do happen to read one of my stories, I love to get feedback. It makes me a better writer, and motivates me to write MORE.

I should probably mention that it was Hogan's Heroes that originally brought me into the FanFiction world, many years ago (ok, not THAT many). That will always be one of my favorite shows. I also enjoy Bones, Community, Gilmore Girls, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Psych, Suits and really any other show with intelligent writing. Oh, and Superman. I love Superman!

I give God all the glory for whatever talent I might have. It all comes from Him. John 3:16.
