Author has written 11 stories for Fantasy, Mythology, General, Nature, Humor, and Supernatural.

"Important Statistics":

Favorite book(s): The Power of One, which is my favorite book of all time. By Bryce Courtenay. Also LOTR, and Great Expectations, and Huckleberry Finn, and To Kill a Mockingbird, and Cold Mountain, and Brave New World (which, if you read a second time, makes so much more sense and is so much more enjoyable), and lots and lotsof other books. I also really liked The Iliad. Especially Patroclus (hehe).

Favorite Authors: Basically the ones who write my Favorite Books...Bryce Courtenay...Charles Dickens...and C. S. Lewis and Lewis Carroll...et cetera.

Favorite Move: I just saw Corpse Bride, and it is perfect. Utterly, brilliantly, wonderfully perfect. Perfection in its essence.

Random stuff about my writing:

I'm really bad at writing dialogue. Not the dialogue itself so much, but the "he said, she replied" parts that tell you who's speaking. So if you notice anything wrong with my dialogue writing, please point it out.

The stuff I write is usually really reflective or really descriptive or chock-full of talking. I don't really write action, so this isn't the place to get it.

About that review thing...If you review me I shall...attempt...to review you back...but I'm so not good at this...It's the thought that counts, eh? And when you are reviewing, please try to find something to constructively criticize or something I might work on, even if it's just the use of an annoying word or anything like that. It really helps. I try to find something to constructively criticize when I review...and if my review makes absolutely no sense and you can't follow what I'm trying to suggest you work on, then it means I think your writing was wonderful and there really is nothing to improve even though I'm unsuccessfully trying to pretend that there is.

My prose is suffering right about now. Unless you call an eight-page history essay "prose." I like when people review my poems.

Days of Troy reviews
Several short perspectives on the Trojan War, from nameless figures that have nothing to do with the overall plot of the war but are effected just as much as those whose names we remember.

Cassandra reviews
A story about the Trojan War, from Cassandra's point of view, though I might go to different POVs sometimes. Rating may go up...since it's about a war, of course.

Someone loses their shoe - it kind of goes all over the place. But it has meter!

Troy reviews
A script about the Trojan War...not connected in ANY WAY except for subject matter to the movie...Paris may be a lot different than you think (or he might not).
