Author has written 7 stories for Mentalist.

I'm an avid reader who has returned to world of fanfiction after some 20 years. You can blame The Mentalist and the awesome writers on this site for my return :-)

I live very happily with my wife and two children in Melbourne, Australia which goes along way to consoling me to the fact I'm a frustrated writer instead of a published author.

I love literature across all of the 'brows'. Favourite authors include Orwell, Dostoyevsky, Clive James, PG Wodehouse, Damon Runyon, Jack Vance, Steven Brust, Tolkien, Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Umberto Eco and Don Delilo.

Favourite TV shows:

I'm not a big TV watcher but I like shows with good writing and great acting. The Wire, True Detective, Deadwood, Mad Men and Firefly are among my very favourites. I came relatively late to The Mentalist but have since caught on every episode. The show, and especially Jane/Lisbon really resonates with me.

Broken by mayzee reviews
Jane still works at the CBI but Lisbon is living a very different kind of life on the other side of the country after suffering a gruelling ordeal. A case brings them into contact again when Jane asks for her help, hoping by solving it she can banish her demons and he can find the woman he loved once again. M for both violence & sex scenes. Reviews, as ever, are much appreciated.

The Long Way Back Sequel by LouiseKurylo reviews
AU: Done with Austin and free of the FBI, Jane and Lisbon chart their future in what remains a murky, dangerous world. Set realistically circa 2016-17 US, it immediately follows events in The Long Way Back. It stands alone, but is best after reading its precursor. / Any M sections are ID'd in the chapter. / I do not own The Mentalist and reap no economic benefits from this story.

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."

Assault and Battery by Thorntons reviews
The team are reaquainted with Walter Mashburn, as someone is intent on sabotaging his new business venture and the SCU are called in to investigate. A case fiction that precedes events of Red Hot. Although this is set in S3, for the purposes of the story, I'm assuming present day legislation and technology apply.

End of Hope by YulianaHenderson reviews
"Life with Marcus Pike was not as bad as she had expected. He cherished her, loved her, and he took care of her. Just because she didn't love him back didn't mean that she wasn't appreciative of his care." Starts off with Lisbon/Pike, but eventually turns to Jisbon. Angsty, AU, but I feel like it could have been a possibility.

The Sting In The Tail by Thorntons reviews

The Circle by RoseUK reviews
Version of how Jane removes his ring. Set shortly after Blue Bird, following the 'More Than Words' style i.e. no heartfelt declarations. (Because I can't do those, lol.). I realise that the ring/ring removal is a sacred thing to many fans, so I hope not to trample all over it. I welcome feedback, but I hope you will be gentle with me. Thank you. :D

The Unmentalist reviews
Red John has met a humiliating end and Jane is shacked up with a massage therapist. When she kicks him out he wonders if maybe Lisbon is 'the one'. This story is a friendly send up of the more traditional Jane/Lisbon pairing so true romantics had best avoid or risk bitter disappointment :-) Set during an unspecified time at the CBI. *COMPLETE*
