Author has written 16 stories for Fantasy, Young Adult, Humor, Supernatural, Romance, and Manga.

I'm a bisexual Brazilian trans guy with lots of story ideas, not enough time to write them all, and an enduring dream of having a successful writing career.

I've been writing stories for more than half of my life. I started with a mega fanfic of over 800,000 and haven't stopped since (and said fanfic has now been turned into a new, 100% original story).

My stories are always about queer people, often queer people who also belong in another kind of minority group. They tend to reflect my interests too: one story is about an orchestra, another sounds like a shonen anime turned into a book, and two of them are fairy tales set in worlds that take queerness for granted.

Most of the stories I write nowadays are part of the same universe, even though it might not seem that way at first. They cross each other's path every now and then, and will eventually go on to share sequels and important characters. You can find the draft version of those stories here: The Orchestra, Be Myself! and MaruMonzterz are the first tree in a long series of books I plan to spend my life writing.

"A Fairy Out of Her Tale" is my newest story. I started it to mark the launch of my Patreon page.

Other than the stories you can find in this site, I'm also working on:

"The Princess and the Wanderer" is the book I'm working on right now. It's another fairy tale about a princess who will marry whoever defeats her father at chess and a wanderer who is the best chess player around. But If you think you know where this plot is going... well, think again. And bring a map to waddle through the plot twists and a helmet to protect against the constant rain of fourth-wall debris.

Non-writing related projects: I do illustrations for my stories and create music for them. I've been drawing for almost 13 years and I've been gathering musical instruments to play over the last decade. Right now the list extends to cello, clarinet, viola, oboe and recorder. I'm eyeing the bassoon next, and maybe the timpani after that.

If you like what you just read, you can find more of my writing at my main website:

Jamie's Chest of Stories

And if you like you just read so much that you want to nurture my writing career and see it flourish, you can become my patron:

James's Patreon Page

For as little as $1 a month, you get one week early access to every story I post. You can also get personalised thank you cards, letters, and a look behind the scenes of how I come up with my stories and what working on them is like. I may even let slip a few artworks and early music drafts...

I'm also on tumblr in three different ways:

The Chest of Stories: similar to the main site, but with all the rebloging that makes tumblr what it is.

Chest of Drawings: a site just for the artwork featuring my characters, stories, book covers, and all that.

Chest of Songs: a site for the music I compose for the stories.

I hope you enjoy my stories and come back for more!

The Orchestra - Sinfónía Lífsins reviews
Gunni is a 16 year-old violinist who has just been hired as the leader of the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra. Siggi is the 19 year-old Principal Cello who is not at all happy with this new development. This kind of plot obviously demands that Gunni develops a crush for Siggi, but that's just the beginning. A bit of everything from drama to humour. Sometimes in bed too. Slash.

Sequel to "A Fairy Out of Her Tale - Dear Diary". Can be read on its own, but it's not recommended. Nessa is a fairy who lost her powers because she killed her step-father. Only, her tale is not so straight-forward as that. Demons are out there destroying the world because angels can't be bothered to stop them. It's up to fairies and others to fight a war nobody asked for...

As they advance, however, they realise there is more to the game than meets the eye, and a children's game becomes something much more sinister.
