Author has written 103 stories for Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, Trapper John, M.D., and Big Valley.

I have written Bonanza fan fiction with stories about all four C's (but mainly Adam) and a few with Candy and Griff, both for K and T audiences and a few M along with a few R stories on another fiction site which has various fandoms. I have also written three LHOTP stories due to Michael Landon's presence in that show, and stories about many of the characters that Pernell Roberts played, especially Trapper John (and Tanner and Padraic Madigan from Big Valley, Sam Boone from Ride Lonesome, Hezekiah Horn and J.D. Ward from High Noon, Part II. Yes, I adore Pernell Roberts, but only the TJMD stories are on here. The others are on Bonanza Boomers Forum in his actor's rooms.)

I hope, if you choose to read one of my stories that you enjoy it.

The Surrender of Sibella reviews
"There's a Chinese proverb that states a new wife brought into the house is like a new horse in the stable; both should be mounted often and beaten regularly. Wise words. And although the saying refers to ancient attitudes, I think Sibella would have benefited from a sound thrashing on a regular basis—perhaps right before being mounted or during the act itself."

Adam I Have Loved reviews
The title is a paraphrase of Romans 9:13. Although there have been many stories of Adam living with Indians-and I have checked many out to make certain I haven't appropriated anything-this is an attempt at a reinvention of canon, having Adam taken by Indians while a boy and later, when meeting up with his father, if he will reveal himself or exact revenge on being abandoned. An AU.
