Erika Flores left the series. CBS says they reached a mutual agreement with Ms. Flores to end her contract so she could pursue other interests. The grapevine says she left because of contract disputes. There is a statement on this on the Official DQMW web site.

If you want to write to anyone affiliated with the series, you should first try any web sites that might have contact information on them or guest books you can sign. Unfortunately, the production office where you could send letters or photo requests is no longer open. You can visit the official Dr. Quinn Web Site for the latest updates on the cast and crew and links to any web sites pertaining to those actors. They usually provide more information on how to contact someone.

There is no longer an official DQMW fan club, but there is a fan magazine called The DQ Times, that includes behind-the-scenes articles and in-depth interviews with the cast and crew, as well as special features from various subscribers. They also have cast pages and photo albums.

This news magazine is published once a year by the DQ fanclub in late October. For more information, visit their web site:

Please note that television programs do not accept scripts from viewers unless you have a writer's agent and it is submitted through that agent. Actors operate under the same policy.

It is okay to post short fan/viewer-written fiction on DQMW-L as long as it is marked "Fan Fiction" in the Subject line (abbreviated "FF"). We have subscribers who do not want to read these messages for various reasons.

A listing of Dr. Quinn Fan Fiction Sites and stories can be found on the Official DQMW site:

The series was shot on the Paramount Ranch (fondly called the P-Ranch) in the Santa Monica National Recreational Area, north of Malibu and just south of Agoura Hills, California. To get there, take Highway 101 (Ventura Highway) to Agoura Hills, CA. Exit from 101 onto Kanan Road and turn left off the exit so you are driving south. Just south of 101, turn left onto Cornell Rd (there's a turn sign on Kanan which says Cornell Way). Follow Cornell Road to the entrance for the P-Ranch about 1-1/2 miles on the right. You can also find more information about filming and behind-the-scenes information at the Official Dr. Quinn Web Site:

The National Park Service has a web page at "" which is about the Santa Monica Recreational Area. This site has directions, climate and recommended clothing, visitor hours, facilities and opportunities, etc.

Please observe the rules posted at the P-Ranch and obey the Rangers.
