Author has written 14 stories for Fantasy, General, Mythology, General, and Humor.
I'm Skylark. I write fantasy (usually modern fantasy) and I usually stay away from anything "traditional". In other words, if you want a hero or heroine who is chosen to save the world, participate in duels against dark enemies or be mentioned in someone's prophecy, I'm probably not the kind of fantasy writer you're looking for. I write ordinary characters into extraordinary situations. I also write extraordinary characters into ordinary situations. Usually I do this to both of them at the same time. Originality is my speciality, and while I can't judge the quality of said originality, I hope it's at least decent.
I'm currently working on Dreams Do Come True. There are plenty of stories lying around about people who get sucked into other worlds, but what if the other world got sucked into Earth instead? Who would notice first? Who would take advantage of it? It might go something like this.
Also current is the parody Mary Sue and the Pirates in Pink, the first of a series of planned short stories featuring the escapades of the most perfect woman in existence.
Older stories include:
Post-Apocalyptic(ish) Fantasy: Oblivion, a story about a protagonist trying to destroy the world.
Alternate Earth Fantasy: Born of the Future, which deals with the hazards of time travel in an alternate history. Contains minor sci-fi elements.
Modern Fantasy: Daruma, which is what might happen if you were followed around the city by a giant red statue; In the Lap (Dance) of the Gods, a humorous take on Greek mythology; Fete, a supernatural drama; The Girl Who Loved Everything, literally; and Agents of Orange, about a family of interdimensional agents who combine magic with high technology.
Mediaeval/High Fantasy: Renegades and Interactive Story - my interactive fiction from long ago, before the ban came in.
Non-Fantasy: Gone Bad, a short atmospheric thriller.
The interactive stories I used to organise are well and truly dead/kaput/finished, because Fictionpress changed their rules years ago to disallow anything interactive, and even deleted Renegades (which was written before this rule was in place, I might add). I think it's a shame, as it was a great writing challenge for me and fun for the people who put characters in, but there's nothing I can do about it. My apologies to all who put in characters and never got to see them make it into the story! However, what was done will remain up here for the record. :)
