Author has written 5 stories for Fantasy, Supernatural, and Horror.

I'm a writer typically of weird fiction, horror, tragic romance, dark fantasy, disillusionment, and other grim misdeeds, often with rural Midwestern settings. I have been writing short fiction since I was six years old, but I've only recently begun seeking publication.

Inspirations stem from different forms of music (early goth rock, heavy metal, punk, "retrowave," witch house...you get the idea) to varying films, to articles published in scientific journals, to the works of other writers.

Authors that have had the most impact on me were 1) Caitlin R. Kiernan, 2) H.P. Lovecraft, 3) Stephen King, 4) H.G. Wells, 5) Michael Crichton, 6) Paul Zindel, 7) Poppy Z. Brite, et cetera.

For Fictionpress.com, I'll be involving the stories that I've already posted on my Deviantart account, though some may be too much for the rules and regulations of the site. I'll probably have to devise some smaller stories to fill in the gaps.
