Welcome to my little corner of the Web! I have been a fan of the schoolgirl shamus, Trixie Belden, since the age of nine. Recently, I discovered the great world of Trixie online. Inspired to write a few Trixie stories of my own, I was offered space here by the kind and talented Vivian. She not only offered me space for my stories, but set up my site and did the pages for my first four stories, allowing me to have input every step of the way. In addition, she has been an unfailing help and teacher to me in the mysteries of html and css coding. With her aid, I have begun learning to make my own graphics. I hope you enjoy the graphics and that they will enhance my stories! My stories are posted in chronological order, not in order of writing. I don't think they contain spoilers! Some stories may require a password for intense storyline or for explicit content. Passworded stories require the Jixemitri password. Please email *here* if you are over 18 and wish to receive the password, giving your name and date of birth. Please allow 24 hours for a reply, although in some cases it may take longer, due to illness or other real life issues. Requests will not be answered on weekends or holidays. I cannot give you the password; you must request it as stated. Please do not lie – that wouldn’t be the Bob-White spirit.
