Author has written 9 stories for Fantasy, General, and Romance.

Update Notes:

UPDATE: December 1, 2008 - Outsider - Chapter Three up. And by the way, everybody loves a good ol' vampire story. Sans Dawn by Banane. Go.

UPDATE: November 1, 2008 - Outsider - Chapter Two (well, installment two, really) is up.

NEW STORY: October 23, 2008 - Outsider - "A troubadoring Gypsy rescues a baby found floating on the river in a basket. She is gadze, a non-Gypsy outsider, but despite warnings otherwise he takes her with him to find someone in a village to care for her. But with the prejudices that name his people common thieves and pagan kidnappers on his shoulders and a baron ruthlessly hunting down the child, can a Gypsy and an outsider become a family?" This is going to be put up in a series of long installments, but it will not be as long as any other story. (And Pixess, I know I asked you to beta but my docX is screwy and I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. :/ I'm sowee.)

Now Playing (Full Summaries)

Outsider - (3 chapters, last updated 12-1-08) A troubadoring Gypsy thief who wanders the country as an unmarried and rebellious outcast rescues a baby found floating on the river in a basket. She is gadze, a non-Gypsy outsider, but despite warnings otherwise he takes her with him to find someone in a village to care for her. But with the prejudices that name his people common thieves and pagan kidnappers on his shoulders and a baron ruthlessly hunting down the child, can a Gypsy and an outsider become a family?

Ira and the Sirens - (16 chapters; last updated 10-16-08.) When seventeen-year-old Ira washes up on shore half dead after a storm, rumors start to fly about the Sirens, mysterious creatures that fiercely terrorize the coastal oceans. When Ira gets curious about his rescue, the answer pulls him right in by his shirt--and he finds himself looking right into the eyes of a Siren. Now, stuck with the attraction of his new unlikely friend and the reluctant help of a fisherman, he's the only one who can sort out a murder on the seas before it happens again.

Murphy's Law - (3 chapters; last updated 6-2-08.) Marshall Murphy, a pill-popping, nerve-wracked honor student who's been forced to move to the big city, thought things couldn't get any worse than they were right now. But everything that can go wrong does go wrong when he and a chatty, flirtatious Romanian pop star who has a fondness for running away from his bodyguards see something they shouldn't and are dragged into the dangerous world of high-end New York drug rings. Of course, Marshall's attraction to his new friend won't help it along. -SLASH-

Dirty South - (4 chapters, last updated 6-1-08.) A corporate city-slicker Yankee buys a house down in the deep South and meets a charmingly offbeat Southern boy who shows him just how refreshing a simple life can be. But rolling scenery isn't enough to smooth things over when the boy's beloved farm is put up for sale, and the Yankee's company is looking to build a factory there. -SLASH-

Propaganda - (3 chapters; last updated 3-31-08.) World War II is over, but hatred still runs deep, and words can turn any mind against another. A Catholic schoolboy returns home to Scotland for a dreaded Christmas holiday with his widower father, thinking it to be the worst possible fate he could have. His father isn't thrilled about the occasion either. But after unexpected tragedy ruins the holiday, they must come to terms with what each truly thinks of his only remaining family.
