Author has written 33 stories for Life, General, Nature, Family, Religion, Spiritual, Friendship, General, School, Love, Politics, Action, Romance, and Horror.

NEWS OF A LARGE AND IMPORTANT NATURE: My fictionpress account is no longer being updated. The short stories will gradually be taken down.

Name: Slightly Obsessive

Location: Somewhere in the Australian Underground.

Other:

Can't seem to stop sleeping in or procrastinating.

Hero: Optimus Prime. For he is righteous.

Of all the things I've wanted to be being a writer has been the only constant.

Hopes to one day be fluent in Japanese and Arabic, and have a fair understanding of French, Italian and Latin.

Will be an author, no matter what Annie Proulx thinks, says or writes.

I build worlds in my mind and then watch them shatter.

Strangely happy, but most of my writing tends to be angsty, angry or hopeless.

Thinks everyone should read Paradise Lost and the short stories of Edgar Allen Poe.

I write short stories because I lack the attention span for anything longer.

Does not believe in gratuitious gore. Horror is an emotion, not a reason for excessive internal organ removal.

Slightly obsessive.

Some texts are born literary, some achieve literariness, and some have literariness thrust upon them.
-Tony Eagleton

Story Status:

Releasing Sin

Summary: “Victory,” spat the dark king, “And they will worship me!” To seduce mankind to the path of evil, Satan sent his only daughter, Sin, to Earth. Under revision.

(6/6 posted.) The newest version of Releasing Sin is up! Take note of a huge number of differences from the past versions - characters have been renamed, dialogue has changed, the meaning and purpose of the story itself has evolved. I keep finding better ways to word things every week so its changed even more since I reposted. Most recently (3.0) I've added a little to all the chapters and fixed up some of the problems I had with some words not being in the centre. Sequel? Maybe. After all my other story ideas. Actually considered an idea for a first chapter the other day.

Night-Beast

Summary: Alex is awakened by the sound of a dog barking from somewhere inside his house. However, he doesn't own a dog and the cry keeps moving further and further away, leading him outside into the night.

(1/1 posted.) Another foray into horror; this time with a male perspective. Waiting for critiques before further editing. I also wrote a sequal to this, also featuring the Beast, but during exam conditions so the quality isn't the same. Interesting, the main character is also male but old. I may re-write and post, after the HSC.

Wheel of Fire

Summary: Alex Earl, former SAS commando, knew something was wrong when his small, private security firm was asked to guard a superyacht while it sailed past the west coast of Africa. A boat tailing them at the edge of the radar was a sure sign of trouble.

(2/7 posted.) In the style of Clive Cussler/Matthew Reilly. I have decided for a male lead, female supporting. Set in the present/future day, will include current events like global warming, the financial crisis and pirates.

The Redlands

Summary: Down in the Redlands, where the grass is tall and burnt copper in colour, a man faces his demons. A sinister being watches and waits. It is said that the field was sown in demon blood and the vegetation hungers for more; moving closer towards the town Raglan, whispering and hissing even when there is no wind.

(6/6 posted.) My not-sequel to Releasing Sin. This time I've decided to use Doctor Faustus as an inspirational tool. Should be about the same length as RS. Set in the same universe. Spotted some small errors and have since fixed them - VERSION 3.0 UP!

Jeff Snake - Four girls without an iota of sanity between them.

07/07/08 - My Greatest Companion, May you find your rest beneath the trees.
