Author has written 1 story for Essay.

Well, there's not much to tell about me.

I joined Fictionpress to comment on peoples stories, as there are quite a few I like (see the favorite stories/authors section for some such) so if you wonder why you see no stories, well, that's why--I may be a writer, but I am not into posting stuff online, where people can see and copy it (not good when you're trying to publish.)

I enjoy spending my free time playing video games (such as the Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Final Fantasy and other series), watching movies (Donnie Darko, the Lord of the Rings and Matrix trilogies, and the Phantasm movies are my favorites), reading a lot of books (such as things by Bentley Little, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, H.P. Lovecraft, Guy Gavriel Kay, George R.R. Martin, and, most of all, Stephen King), listening to music (favorites are Metallica, Led Zepplin, Blind Guardian, King Crimson, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, and assorted movie and video game soundtracks), reading philosphy, and, of course, writing.

I don't mind talking to people, so feel free to e-mail or IM me, as I always respond. Especially if you're in need of writing-related help, which I'm glad to offer.

Well, that's about it on me.

The Idiocy of the English Language reviews
A serious point told in a (hopefully) humorous way. The title is the best summary. PG-13 for brief strong language.
