Author has written 33 stories for Scarecrow and Mrs. King, and Remington Steele.

Thank you for reading my stories. I am a mom of two crazy busy kids, have a husband who works way more than he should and work full time myself.

I have always loved the detective/drama shows of the 80s and thanks to DVD and Netflix, I have been able to share some of it with my kids.

Two of my favorite shows - Scarecrow and Mrs. King and Remington Steele - and their characters will be the basis for most, if not all of my stories. I feel I understand these characters the most and understand the writers more than some other shows.

Please enjoy my craziness, all constructive criticism is welcome!

A Little BubblyA Little Romance by Karen LaManna reviews
Originally published in Scarecrow and Mrs. King 35th Anniversary Fanzine: Service in Shadows, 2018. This tale is something I whipped up for a filler at the end of Flight For Freedom from Season 3: Episode 10. It's mostly told from Lee's point of view. I really enjoyed writing this and I hope you like reading it.

Definitely Something by strent23 reviews
This story takes place during, All That Glitters, Season 4, episode 19. This is my take on what could have happened. Beginning of episode slightly altered and is slightly AU.

Challenge - Singspiration: Wanted reviews
My response to the Facebook challenge: Write a story starring our erstwhile SMK friends that was inspired by a song or lyrics from a song. Include the song title and/or lyrics that inspired you. The lyrics of the song Wanted by Hunter Hayes always reminds me of a conversation that Lee and Amanda could have had. What if that conversation was held the first night they made love.
