Author has written 9 stories for Fantasy, Haiku, Sci-Fi, and Action.

ten years - 9/11/01 - we will never forget


I was going to put my age and what I like to do and everything else... But then I decided that that was boring, and anyway, being enigmatic is always good, yes?

Mostly older short stories and one-shots here, with a poem or two from occasional experiments.

I also put my completely un-edited novels from National Novel Writing Month (http://nanowrimo.org/) here. Enjoy the driveling brilliance that comes of banging out 50,000 words in 30 short days!

Ocean of Fire was once nominated for the "Best Written" and "Best Plot" awards for the Supernatural Story Awards! Scorpion and Sandman was nominated for "Most Memorable Character". Didn't win, but it made my day to be considered.
