I have been a Bonanza fan for as long as I can remember, and a Joe’s gal. I have only recently ventured into the realm of writing Bonanza FF. My stories center on Joe, especially as we see him in the early seasons. I like to include the whole family in the story. The only story I have written where they’re not there is Springtime Memories, but that was a Joe and Marie moment.
