Author has written 13 stories for Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Nature, Fantasy, Supernatural, and General.

Well, I guess I should put all of my non-fanfiction short stories somewhere.

Hi all. I'm a writer, illustrator, and dinosaur enthusiast who... writes things, I guess? Lots and lots of science fiction and fantasy. You can purchase my novels on Amazon (digital download) or Lulu (print editions), under the name T. K. Arispe, but I'm not going to pretend to try to make money off of my short stories. So you can read them here for free!

I also write lots of fanfiction, so please check out my FanFiction.net profile if you want to see that. (There's lots more there than there is here currently.)

Visit my blog at arispe-art.blogspot.com for artwork, behind-the-scenes writing commentary as I work on stuff, and the occasional random rambling (it's all family-friendly).
