live up to your first impression.


To all my reviewers, I'm sorry if I don't reply your reviews. I used to do that for every review, but these days FP isn't very... let's just say, user-friendly. But don't doubt that I don't appreciate every single one of your reviews. You guys keep me writing!

Also, I recently found out that some of my stories are featured on A Drop of Romeo. A big thank you to whoever submitted them! Here are the links: Blue Eyes, Hab Dich Lieb and Facebook Official. Facebook Official was also nominated for Best One-Shot in Round 12 of SKoW Awards.

Mostly, I'd recommend Fades in the Summer, which is one of my newest works. It would really mean a lot to me to get some feedback on any of my stories.

About me:

I'm a university student; I major in English, minor in Media Studies, and hope to be a writer "when I grow up". I'm needing to grow up very, very soon. I read a lot and play a lot of video games. I'm really just bilingual, even though I like to think of myself as trilingual. English is the language I'm most comfortable in, even though I didn't start learning it until age 3 or so. I love learning new languages, but lack the gumption to stick with it after a while. I "language-hop" a lot, so to speak. To my friends, I speak a weird mixture of all the languages I know. It's odd. I'm odd. I love rock music - I listen to it in English, German, and Japanese. I play the piano as well as the guitar and at one point in my life wanted to be a musician. But on the whole, I lead a pretty boring life. I do however like to make people laugh. And I like to tell stories.

And so here I am.


You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.
- Anne Lamott

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
- Thoreau

We must do extraordinary things. We have to. It would be absurd not to.
- Dave Eggers

By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.
- Kafka

Auld Lang Syne reviews
After Nik left four years ago, the group splintered. But now he's back, forcing a reunion between six ex-friends who could've been strangers, but not quite. Temporarily goaded into close proximity, old hatchets get unburied and unresolved tensions rise again. And, as Tamy comes to realise, four years can change everything but the things that matter.

How To Get From Point A To B reviews
One-shot. How often is it that you get to meet an attractive stranger on the train? The problem is, you usually never see him again. Luckily for Juli, hers just keeps showing up.

Maybe Too Late reviews
Friends make the best lovers, or so they say. I wouldn't know, because you don't feel the same way. Wish I'd seen this coming… but I'm three years too late.

Fades in the Summer reviews
One-shot. They were best friends growing up, until that summer full of mistakes they couldn't fix. Now, he's the boy who never dates; she's the girl that all the boys cheat with. And they're both clutching onto the pieces of their sanity in the only way they know how.

Because We Believe in Fairytales reviews
One-shot. In all the movies, all the books, they like to wax poetry about how beautiful a romance between best friends can be. But what they leave out is the part about how letting go may be the hardest lesson to learn of all.

One-shot. The best way to get over a guy? Date his new girlfriend's twin brother.

Hab Dich Lieb reviews
EDITED one-shot. When you leave town at the age of eighteen, there is usually a reason. Returning five years later is generally not seen as a good idea, especially when the townspeople subscribe to small-town racism and you’re engaged to the enemy.

Blue Eyes reviews
One-shot. "What's wrong?" Before I knew it, he had placed himself squarely in my path. And – dare I say it – he actually sounded a little angry and hurt. "Why are you not stalking me anymore?"

Presumptions reviews
One-shot. She thought he was a stain on the family tree. He thought she was the perfect match for his snob-of-a-brother. Negative first impressions on a deserted highway at 2 A.M. ––and the worst part was, they could've had each other at 'hello'.

Days To Christmas reviews
One-shot - 9symphs. Aidan was satisfied with the status quo. But when Luc comes back for Christmas and Tisha seems too excited, he changes his mind.

The Little Pink Bottle reviews
One-shot. Imagination is powerful. Sometimes, though, it gets out of hand... and you end up killing a good thing.

Learning To Write reviews
One-shot. "Romance stories are always the same – boy meets girl, things happen, they fall in love, blah blah blah." She thought clichés were stupid...

One-shot - 9symphs. Aidan really wants to impress Rett. Too bad Rett isn't willing to co-operate.
