This series started in 2011 and was the beginning of my adventure into the world of writing fiction. Inspired by a TV show that spawned thousands of fan fiction tales, I decided to go for it. I’m glad I did. These novellas are written  simply because I thoroughly enjoy the creative process.

Please read the disclaimers on each story before you begin.

I will update this post every time a new installment is released.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Our dynamic duo are better than ever. Good relationship, good jobs, good friends, good times. Not everyone is so lucky, and when a fourteen-year-long case comes across CJ’s desk involving someone she loves, she decides that a little friendly meddling is in order and enlists her wife to help.

Will the adoption run smoothly after the damage is done?
