"Steal your face right off your head." - Jack Straw by the Grateful Dead

So, now you know I'm a fan of the Grateful Dead. I know what you're thinking and yes I did follow them for a few summers, and it was worth it and lots of fun.

I started writing Perry Mason stories back in high school with friend CLH, well before I knew that there was something called "fan fiction." Perry Mason is my personal hero, spirit guide and confidant. Over the years I've probably written 300 hundred stories about him. Sadly, most were in notebooks and lost in a fire; more's the pity.

The Ghost & Mrs. Muir stories are here thanks to the encouragement of Melchy - a truer pal there never was.

Peter Gunn is here because Blake Edwards is/was a genius and Peter Gunn is one cool dude.

Happy reading.

"In another time's forgotten space your eyes looked from your mother's face" - Franklin's Tower by the Grateful Dead
