Author has written 14 stories for Thriller, Fantasy, Mystery, Horror, Sci-Fi, and Action.

Hello All,

My name is Sylvanius and I write mostly murder mysteries. No, that isn't quite right. I write either in the fantasy/mythology world or in the darker times of a murder mystery. I love serial killers, and the motives behind them always make my brain strangely happy. I am a normal every day worker who goes to school, but I have a very strange, somewhat dark mind. I don't write as often as I used to, and haven't finished a story since early 2017. However, I am starting to get back into this hobby. I may not be a great writer, but I am an avid reader. I have two kittens, Megara and Severus, and two dogs named Xander and Ryder.

I am not really a very interesting person, but that might be what makes writing so appealing to me in the first place. If you were to spot me on the streets, you would probably overlook me. I am completely normal in appearance, but not in mind.

My stories are usually from a male perspective, with a few exceptions, and have a deep emphasis on character evolution. Most of my characters end up becoming real in my mind, kind of, and all of them have different personalities, while having a few similarities that they use differently. Currently, the stories Collapsing Gravity (Facing Grey) and Paying in Blood and Ash are complete on my computer. Burned and Dangerous Knowledge are on their way towards the ending, while Reluctant Destined and Bones of Deception are still considered new projects in my head. What You See Is and Secondhand Secrets will most likely never be finished, even if I have a little bit more on my computer than is on here. There are a few other stories I am currently working on, but I don't know if I will ever post them on here.

That seems to be everything important I can think to add.

Goodbye for now

Sylvanius O. Stephans

Hello Everyone,

Just a quick little note. I finished updating Paying in Blood and Ash on here. That story is now complete. I also added a chapter to Blink on Briar Road. Oh, and there is another chapter that had been added to the Reluctant Destined. I haven't finished any new stories yet, but I have been working on a few others in the little bit of free time that I get.

That's everything for now.
