Author has written 26 stories for Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, and Supernatural.

I live in Chicago. I read, watch movies, and write things occasionally.

Stories are posted about a month apart. When I finish one, I will take time off to work on other things. There are two worlds: one fantasy, and one modern. The modern one has vampires and sometimes other supernatural creatures. The fantasy one has magic and a shapeshifter. My suggestion is to read both.

If you have any questions, just ask.
