Author has written 8 stories for Without a Trace.

The name my two fantastic parents chose for me is Patricia...which means I'm called everything BUT that. The usuals are Trish, Tricia, or Pat depending on if I work with you, you are part of my family, or I went to school with you.

I live in the great state of Texas in the United States with my purely wonderful husband. Our house is on the water near the Gulf of Mexico.

By reading other profiles, I gather I'm one of the oldest people involved here! I graduated college a long time ago and am well into a career that allows me to travel, provides an abundance of free time, and provides me with constant challenges and stress so I don't get bored.

My career doesn't allow me much time for TV, but I'm an avid Without A Trace fan and totally taken with the extreme talent of Anthony LaPaglia...not to mention how the man exudes hotness just by sitting there! Maybe the best thing about my job is that I carry a gold shield very much like Jack's g .

My second favorite world is populated by Grissom and Sara over at CSI. I love the parallels between the couples...and yes, I mean further than having to hunks of molten men as leading studs. :-)

Hobbies (or maybe they are therapy sessions) include fishing with my husband and working in the yard. Anything that allows me to get away from the stress for a while and doesn't take too much brain power.

Life is short, so laugh often, live well, and love the good people around you.
