Author has written 37 stories for Criminal Minds.

Greetings!

I am a huge Criminal Minds fan, as you can tell by my stories. Garcia is my favorite character. I believe she is one of the strongest female characters out there.

If you ever want to me to write anything I will be glad to take a look and see if my muse is on board.

I have a combined account with the AMAZING FreelySheRoams called PenPalsGM. Check us out!
