Now you don't have to sift through my messy profile, and I can tidy it up a bit.

Please refer to the blog for future updates, longer story summaries, extra info, and anything else relating to the subject!


I write because I like it. I don't write (read: procrastinate) because it drains me and I am lazy and do not like to be drained. But every once and a while a plot wallaby will take such a strong hold of me and threaten to become a plot kangaroo - or worse, a plot baby seal; so cute - that I must get it out or suffer the consequences. Reviewer death threats seem to do the trick, too.

As an "update on my life outside the realm of writingness", I am going back to school! Yes, ladies and possibly gents, this fall I shall be pursuing a higher degree of education which will hopefully one day translate into lots and lots of money! So if there are not updates in the next three school years, you know what to blame.


Whether you need a pick-me-up or just a good ol' fashioned review, check us out at the Roadhouse! I'm a part-time bartender :)

A Romance of Life ((Abstract)): (DELETED)

The Poetry: Oh, please, for the love of all that is good and decent do not read my poetry. If you do, you must promise not to laugh. Okay, so you can laugh, I just don't want to know. Constructive crit. is always welcome, but I only keep them up because they remind me where I came from, as well as why I should never ever consider quitting my day job. That being said, you have been warned. RAYOR (read at your own risk!) On second or third thought, just don't read them at all. Still can't bring myself to delete them, just like I can't bring myself to not shudder every time I read them.
