Welcome to my little corner of the Web! I have been a fan of the schoolgirl shamus, Trixie Belden, since the age of nine. After discovering the great world of Trixie online, I was inspired to write a few Trixie stories of my own. The kind and talented Vivian not only offered me space for my stories, but set up my site and made 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 started learning to make my own graphics. I hope you enjoy the graphics and that they will enhance my stories!

My main universe, The Sands of Time, follows the Belden, Wheeler, Frayne, Lynch, and Mangan families from the distant past into the future of the young adult Bob-Whites. Romantic pairings of the Bob-Whites, when featured, tend to follow "traditional" patterns, i.e. Jim-Trixie, Brian-Honey, Mart-Diana. Non-universe stories found in Another World may be group efforts, book rewrites, or don't follow the universe timeline.
- The Sands of Time
- Stories are posted in (mainly!) chronological order, not in order of posting. Universe begins in the 1940s with backstories for Winthrop and Katje Frayne, and give glimpses into the lives of James and Nell Frayne and the parents of Diana Lynch.
- Another World
- These stories do not fit into my regular universe. They may be standalone short stories, group efforts, or book chapter rewrites. Newest stories added at bottom.
- Cast Pages
- My selections in a "timeless" casting call for characters from the Trixie Belden series and a few of my own original characters. Best viewed on a screen of at least 13 inches; doesn't display well on mobile devices such as i-pad, e-reader, or smartphone.
Some of my favorite Trixie sites:
- Ronda’s Library – Find out what was going on behind the scenes.
- The Catfish Princess - Come visit the Blink of an Eye universe and take a peek at the life and times of our Bob-Whites, as well as Bagatelles--standalone stories.
- Frayler Academy – Go to the library to check out wonderful stories of the grown-up Bob-Whites at Frayler Academy: the Seuss Universe, Time and Season, and Undercover Angel, as well as standalone short stories.
- Sleepyside Apartments – Three universes! Fairy tale favorites retold with a Bob-White twist; a modern universe, starts with Brian and Jim going to college; a universe set in the 1950s and featuring our man Dan and a nice Jewish boy from New York City; and a collection of standalone stories and logic solutions.
- Janice's Trixie Page – Four universes will keep you guessing, as the young adult Bob-Whites encounter mystery, romance, and unexpected choices! In addition, there is an interactive game as well as a choose-your-own adventure story. Even if you lose yourself in Janice's Trixie-world, you'll savor every minute!
- Patricia's Passages - What happens when a middle-aged empty nester goes online? She produces some prime Trixie Belden fanfic, that’s what! Includes A Bob-White Trilogy and her Vietnam-era universe, Butterflies Above Our Nation.
