Author has written 21 stories for Castle.

Hi. Just a guy, with a great wife, and six (count 'em) kids. I love writing about Castle, and I enjoy reading Castle, Big Bang Theory, NCIS, Lucifer, and Eureka. I realize that most of those are off-the-air now, so they live on through stories like those told on this site.

For Castle, I like creating alternate universes where the spirit of canon is followed, but with different stories and different outcomes. To that, I have created four different AUs that I write stories for. Any other story not included in these AUs can be considered standalone. I hope you enjoy them.

AU in San Francisco: A Different Road Taken, Out of the Forest and Into the Woods, Listen, A Fly in the Garden, Mannequins and Marionettes, and Blank

AU The Redemption of Kate Beckett: The Wonder, Hunt the Hunter, Holiday

AU Castle Goes Missing Before the Wedding: Monster, Recluse, Triumphant

AU Scott Dunn Returns: Magic, The Long Game, Whisper
