Author has written 33 stories for Historical, General, Humor, Action, Romance, Love, Sci-Fi, Kids, and Fable.

Locale: northern New York state.
Age: 22.
Interesting fact: I can count to five in six languages.


About my stories:

Currently I am working on four stories.

The Fury of the StormA tale set in 11th century Ireland about a young woman who tries valiantly to defend her home from Viking raids. This will be a long novel. I've finished the first part, the introduction. The story splits into two, possibly three directions from here. I'm putting this one on hiatus for a while, I need to restructure it and figure out where it's going.

Sarajevo: A tale set in Milosevic's Bosnia & Herzegovinia. The story follows Jonathan Rostovich, a man out for revenge against everyone, and is not afraid to use whatever means necessary, including his niece. This one has been in many stages of writing, I've tried to write it completely for five or six years now.

The Telekinetics: Childhood Fables: This is the first novel in a series of sci-fi tales set in a futuristic Earth. In this one, we learn the story of the telekinetics, and in particular Alison Patrick's journey to becoming one.

Professor MacInnis vs the Stupids: This is the satire of my alma mater, which I love to death but dearly annoyed me. All the names, places, and events are made up, blah blah blah. You know the standard denial drill. If you have a problem with my story or my characters, please, let me know and we'll talk it out like real adults. Updated sporadically, usually one page chapters.

Finished:

The Richest Heiress: Irene Montero must negotiate the deadly waters of politics in Spain in the 17th century. Will soon be re-edited.

Want something quick to read?

La Résistance: Three German soldiers are sent on a specific mission in World War II France.

Cuban Cigars: A RCMP Captain attempts to catch the most infamous of smugglers on a cold night near Newfoundland.

Liquid Nightmares: Sydney does not understand why her crewmates refuse to visit a certain planet. When they are forced to crashland there, she learns why.


Author's final notes:
