Author has written 15 stories for Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Mythology, and General.

I'm strictly an amateur with aspirations... though in the current state my assorted scribblings are in, you'd think my muse was done tormenting me. but noooooo, she has to continue with this nonsense. sometimes I think she's the Cheshire Cat herself (or himself, depends on your point of view) I also attempt to make art, hence the deviantart link in my homepage box.

I tend to write sci-fi/fantasy, however I often attempt to downplay the fantasy parts as much as I'm able. My inspirations are drawn from a myriad of authors, including Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Douglas Adams (whom we are all the lesser since his death), Anne McCafferey (I know I can't have spelled that right) Madeline L'engle, Mercedes Lackey, Andre Norton, Diane Duane, Jacqueline Carey, Juliet Marillier, Robert Jordan, Shirley Rousseau Murphy...

and I'm sure there's several others I can't think of right now. You most likely won't find a one of my works that doesn't have some sort of fantastical element... oh, and I write poetry. heh. Inspirations there are Shakespeare, Robert Burns, Edgar Allen Poe... oh, all the classics, you know. Although I must say I haven't much of a head for reading poetry sometimes... which is generally why I tend to let my loved ones inspire me in that area, and whatever random element of my surroundings throws itself upon my literary mercy, or the mercy of my muse. She's much crueler than I.

Poems are under pen name Llyan Wyrdling (also in my favorite authors)

Just updated several stories: Betrayal is now "Chaos and Painbearer: the Beginning of the End" and has been updated. Were We Human is now "Bastet's Legacy" and has been updated. The Source is new - a creation myth for my falin 'verse. Oh, and Spellblood has been updated.

To make it simple: my falin stories are (in order of timeline): The Source, The Seven and the Queen, Unexpected Kindness, Meeting her Match, Chaorae, Murdoc Returns, Chaos and Painbearer: the Beginning of the End, and The Shaman's Majicou.

Another I is the precursor to Ad Perpetuam Memoriam.

Lightning and Fire Forged & Metamorphosis are linked by character, in that order.

Things Change reviews
A young girl discoveres she is not just what once she thought she was... maybe more coming, I don't know. I'm not really sure I like this one. It was inspired by a dream and so it's a little flaky.
