Who Am I:

I'm a compulsive reader and writer, who is more of a writer than a reader these days. I also dabble in art, am an avid collector of music, I have a black belt in Taekwondo, and I have a weak spot for ice cream. I've also been called Obsessive Compulsive by my friends, due to my obsession with alphabetising things, and my obsessive way of organising things. I can be overly sarcastic and cynical at times, but am actually quite a nice and loyal person. I'm a brilliant liar, but I'm also brutally honest and I'm not afraid to stand up to people. I can't stand the cold, yet hate too much heat, I think penguins are evil and manipulative, and I wouldn't be caught dead wearing pink. My Apple laptop is my baby, and so is my little Holden car, and I have a nasty habit of thinking out loud. I hate the radio, I think TV is getting worse, and books don't get enough attention. You can tell I'm really mad or scared when I swear, because normally I don't, and I hate it when people insist on using bad language. If you've read through all of that, you may think I'm a bit of a weirdo, and a walking contradiction. Don't worry, I do too.

Future/Current Projects:

1 - The Immortal Lie is the final story in my Immortals trilogy, and it will be told entirely from Brendan's POV. This is a story about him finally grasping what it means to be immortal, and the impact his new life will have on his oblivious mortal family. Can Sarah and Gabriel help him? Or is this something that even the two Reapers have no expertise in? Sometimes a lie is sweeter to believe in than the truth of the matter. - On Hold Indefinitely

2 - Stardust And Memories is a new short story with a bit of a sci-fi feel to it. A dying race sends all of their worldly knowledge to Earth, protected by two guardians who each have one half of the total knowledge. However, once on Earth they become separated as an old foe takes possession of Ash, leaving Taylor to flee into the strange city. However, once on Earth Taylor forgets about her otherworldly identity, and grows up in a foster family with Jake, another orphan. But dreams start to stir, dreams of a man who once held her heart, and in her quest for answers about the mysterious Ash, she ends up in the hands of the enemy, dragging Jake along for the ride. Memories are powerful things, but when they're gone, what do you have left? - On Hold Indefinitely

Cool Writing Quotes:

"Those who find my spelling and grammar mistakes are welcome to keep them." - found on DA.

"Many people hear voices when no-one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing." - Margaret Chittenden.

"Writing is like prostitution. First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and finally for money." - found on DA.

"Writers don't just write with pen or paper. They write with their blood, find words through experience, and papers on the tissue box..." - found on DA.

"Writing is a matter of finding the appropriate balance between dinosaurs and sodomy." - Michael Swanwick.

"Writers aren't exactly people. They're a whole lot of people trying to be one person." - F. Scott Fitzgerald.

"The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense." - Tom Clancy.

"Why do I write? Better to ask me why I breathe or why my heart beats! I write because I know of no other way to be." - found on DA.

"When you write, you get this look on your face like you stuck a fork in a toaster." - found on DA.

"Being an author is the closest you can get to schizophrenia without being locked up." - found on DA.

"I am not to be trusted in a book store with a credit card." - found on Facebook.

"When the characters are happy, the readers are not." - Ian Irvine.

“The creations of a great writer are little more than the moods and passions of his own heart, given surnames and Christian names, and sent to walk the earth.” - W.B. Yeats.

“The thing to remember when you're writing is, it's not whether or not what you put on paper is true. It's whether it wakes a truth in your reader.” - Charles De Lint.
