Author has written 74 stories for Castle.

I write when the muse strikes, sometimes I'm brave enough to publish. Full-time employee, part-time student, full-time dork.

Avid reader/movie watcher when I have time. Notifications make me happy; although I write for myself it's nice to know that my little character interpretations are being read. I have endless gratitude for those who make time to read my little ramblings and even more for those that take the time to send me their input.

No copyright infringement intended. The characters are not mine, I do this for fun, that's it. Please don't sue me unless you want some credit card debt and eventual student loans.
