I'm so grateful that people have enjoyed my stories so far; after having considered myself relegated to the realm of analytical writing, it was an unexpected joy to be able to write fiction again. Finding that people actually liked what I wrote was more than I'd hoped for.
I have a dual BA in Poli Sci and Writing, and live in the damp, cold Northwest with my fiancee and two birds.

Hey -- would you stop apologizing for the length of your stories? I like them that way. I can sit back and relax and actually get into a story line this way.
Not that I don't tend to take at least twenty pages just to clear my throat...
Take care and I always look forward to reading (or re-reading) your stuff.
Greg Sanders really want? For that matter, what do Nick, Warrick, and Gil really want as well?

I love your quotes -- complete with attributes! This is excellent; switching voices, managing the whole geometry of the situation, the whole thing.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. I have barely been able to put it down. Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and the awesome comment. I will keep it up if you keep reading. :)
You had better bloody well follow this up! This has been awesome, and I can't wait to see where it goes from where it ended.
This is the first in my "favorite stories" section.
Author's Response: I will follow this up. I'm already writing the sequel, I've got chapter 1 done already, BUT, I want to wait until I have it almost completed before I post any of it. Also, I'm so excited that my story is your first Favorite Story, that's awesome!
Hey! I'm loving this story -- keep it coming...I can't wait to find out what happens.
You have a serious gift for cliff hanger chapters, darn it all!
Author's Response: Yes, cliffhangers are fun to write, plus it keeps the readers coming back for more and more...I enjoy writing them. Thanks for the review!
Chapter 34: Illuminations: Chapter Nine
Hey -- what's with the lack of reviews here? You definitely deserve more. You've obviously put a lot of work into this, and I recognize and appreciate your efforts. You've got a tightly written piece of art here.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review again! I'm fine with the lack of comments...for the most part. I think the fact that I kind of slowed down my updating was cause of that...at least I hope it was and not the writing. I've been extremely busy finishing up my final semester of college and my internship that I forget to post my chapters, but I'm finally finished and now have a lot of free time on my hands until I find a real job, lol. So, expect more frequent updates.
Sorry for double post -- but I do have one question. What kind of research did you get into in order to write Grissom the way you did? It's really fascinating, and very vivid. Great work.
Author's Response: Double posts are fine, it proves you're interested. And my research, I read a lot. I research EVERYTHING before I post my chapters. That is also why it takes so long for me to update. I usually write my chapter just straight through then I go back and research information and review past episodes of the show and just make sure that everything I put in my story belongs there. I never expected this to go on this long, but I'm actually enjoying it. And as long as my readers enjoy reading it then I will continue. It will end, I promise that, but I'm sure there will be more follow-up stories to this adventure. And more cliffhangers are on the way! ;)

Sometimes the unlikely does occur. How you deal with it is up to you.

As usual -- great stuff. I'd kind of like to see how the relationship between Gil and Greg develops however. What would it take to bribe you into a sequel?
Author's Response: You just never know. Bribery is wonderful--it seldom works, but it\'s wonderful! *eg* Sometimes these little scenes keep talking to me, and if this one does, you\'ll see it here.
