9/1/2016: Catch the world premiere of Pandora's Box!
If you're looking for the "How to Build a Weebly Site" tutorial, you can find it here. (And here are the two example sites: Trixie & Dan Forever and Stories of Sleepyside.)
If you're here, you either stumbled across this website by complete accident or you are looking for my Trixie Belden fanfiction. (If it was an accident, I'm betting you're having a very difficult time at the moment wrapping your head around the second part of that sentence.)
Assuming you aren't already about to close this window or enter another URL address in your browser - and that you actually mean to be here - this is what you need to know:
1. If you are a strict traditionalist, The Mystery of the Mardi Gras Mask is for you. It's as true-to-the-original books as I could get it. It's rated K.
2. A new entry in the "Wait, this IS a Jim & Trixie story? Seriously?" category. Another true-to-the-original books, rated K story: The Secret of the Silver Star. (In progress)
3. The Mystery Off Glen Road - The Musical is safe for everyone, though you do need to approach it with the thought that it's okay to poke gentle fun at the books. It's also rated K.
4. The Cold Lake Murders is a work currently in progress. It is definitely non-traditional and pairings-wise, focuses on Trixie and Regan, though mostly in friendship with hints of something more. It's rated T for content and language.
5. 31 Things to Do in Sleepyside When You're Dead is a PG-13, Dan and Trixie supernatural book-length story. It gives canon only a passing glance when convenient and often indulges in "dark" humor. Ghosts. Witches. Snark. It's here.
6. If you want to go way off the rails, there's A Simple Kind of Fear. It is rated M and you will need to follow the instructions on the main page for obtaining the password. I cannot overstate how important it is to understand that ASKOF is non-traditional, canon-ignoring, soap-operatic craziness. And there's no "hinting" in this one. Trixie and Regan are very much together. Because of this, I gave ASKOF its own website. (Well, that and because ASKOF is and always has been a rather over-the-top production.) ASKOF is a work in progress.
7. The Stand Alones are just what they appear. Random short stories from no particular universe. Because if it wasn't already apparent that I am all over the place in my stories in terms of style and content, I thought I'd throw this in the mix, too.
Keeper of: Moms’ strawberry pin cushion • the sometimes dirt/sometimes wood floor of the clubhouse • Regan’s letter about Dan that Trixie “accidentally” reads • every time Regan puts his big, freckled hands on his hips • Sarah Sligo’s ghost • O’Neil’s Bookstore • Regan's pajamas he walks around the Manor House in after the attempted robbery in #8 • Sarah Sligo’s fake grave marker • the Picasso painting that tipped Trixie off.
