Author has written 3 stories for Romance, Horror, and Fantasy.

I like horror and supernatural and sci-fi mixed with a wee bit of romance. I like comedy to be in everything. I aspire to one day be something Joss Whedon would smile at.

My Thang, As It Were:

So, one of my favorite things when I get into a book is when I find an interview or a specific place where the author reveals the music they were listening to when they wrote a certain story. Thusly, do I present the following playlists. They may be a little weird, just because I listen to a pretty vast array of tunes, but, um...it builds character? Right now I only have one for my one-shot, since...that's the only one done. I technically have one for Hauntings&Metropolis, but I feel that some of the songs give away what I want to happen...as pretty much nothing has happened yet...buuuut maybe for chaptered stories I'll do multiples. I don't know. Whateva. I hope you enjoy!

You Came With The Key

(For anyone who was wondering where the title came from, it's a lyric in one of the songs I was listening to when I wrote it, Morrissey's You Have Killed Me. I thought it was appropriate, considering the metaphor about soul mates, and...well. Other relevant topics.)

4) Romeo and Juliet (cover) - The Killers

10/28

I'm trundling back, abashedly late, into writing. I was working on this huge script project for a school thing, which...was what it was, but now I'm back! I'm gonna be trying to do some NaNoWriMo this year, but I've decided that I won't neglect my other stories just because. I'm gonna be writing crazed for all of November. Yeeeaah. So look for that? Word. Hope you enjoy the new chapter of Haunting&Metropolis. Rock it.

You Came With The Key reviews
“Soul mates: two people whose lives fit together like an answer to a question. A key in a lock. A knife to a wound. It’s Lex Luther and Superman. Frankenstein and his monster. Just as much as our dear old Romeo and Juliet." One-shot.
