Author has written 56 stories for Love, Friendship, Life, School, Fantasy, General, Politics, War, Nature, Fantasy, Family, and Thriller.

AND THEN SOME...

Well, just a warning. I realized that everything written on or before 2002 are things to be embarassed about and therefore improved upon. Feel free to criticize constructively! And don't expect any fireworks. Most everything is an experiment in style and content.

NEWS & UPDATES:

I'm trying my hand on fiction ("Tiyanak") and dappling some more on free verse (the last few poems regarding women and sexuality). But I still love rhyme and I'll be writing some "old" pieces soon enough.
