Author has written 60 stories for Supernatural, Horror, Humor, Kids, Sci-Fi, School, Life, Mythology, Love, General, Romance, Spiritual, Young Adult, Fantasy, Biography, Essay, Mystery, Play, Action, and Family.

3-31-14: I'm still chugging away on Nomadverse novels. For April Camp NaNoWriMo 2014, I'll be drafting books 5 and 6, Outcast and Blindspot. The original plan was to work on the second draft of Nomad, but my brain kicked into high gear on the sequels so, alas, I'm again distracted for revisions. But don't worry, I've been developing all the stories in the series, so whenever I do start revisions, it'll all be organized and awesome and totally worth it. I think. :D

About Me:

Nesasio: monotypic genera - Nesasio solomonensis, the fearful owl

Hello! Those of you from the Globe and Review Game will know me as Lyra. To anyone else who stumbled upon my profile, I'm simply Nesasio, a random reviewer who (hopefully) gave some useful advice in a review. :)

I'm a self-described nerd who loves scifi shows, crime dramas, action movies, and epic fantasy. I don't, however, write most of those things. I've tried my hand at scifi (fail), crime drama (epic fail), and epic fantasy (jury's still out) but usually I stick to the supernatural, horror, and general fiction genres. When I write, it's because I want to tell a story. It might not be flawless but I enjoy it and I hope others do too. Unlike many of the writers on this site, I'm not looking to be published someday; I just write as a hobby. I'm always looking to improve, though, so constructive criticism is very welcome.

About My Chaptered Stories:

Nomad: (Supernatural/Action/Romance/Humor) As if hitting a stray dog wasn't difficult enough, Nora soon finds herself thrown into a supernatural world of curses and monsters she never once thought could really exist. Together with the not-so-stray dog and his tall, dark, and broody brother, Nora begins a cross-country adventure to figure out where she fits in a world beyond the Masquerade. This has turned into a series that currently spans 4 novels, with intent to write more at a later time. Currently preparing to write the second draft. Ongoing.

Mountain Dawn - Working Title: (General/Fable/Fantasy/Drama) All Lea wanted was to give her brother a proper burial, but the mountain spirits have another goal in mind: revolution. This will be an expansion of my short story 'Mountain Boy', taking it in a more concrete direction than I did with the short. I'm hazy on the details so far but I'm loving that. Ongoing.

Bay: (Horror/Supernatural/Action/Drama/Romance) A shadowed beast stalks the streets at night. The dogs have kept it away before, but when a new threat starts to hunt their protectors, it's only a matter of time before the beast returns... NaNoWriMo '11 Fully posted but currently on hiatus between drafts.
