Author has written 11 stories for War, General, Life, Historical, Nature, Family, Religion, Play, and Essay.

First off, allow me to warn those of you who don't know me: I am a British Naval History Major, a subject which influences a lot of my writing. Horatio Nelson is my role model (except when it comes to love and marriage - in that respect he's an utterly despicable scoundrel). But in all seriousness, he's incredibly fascinating, as a man and as a historical/mythical figure.

Back in the US...completing my final year at Gettysburg, PA. Hopefully. Working on my second book of the Alexius Trilogy, which will connect Book 1 - where all of the main characters are introduced and explained, essentially - and Book 3, which people will recognize as the original Ignorance's Blessing. I would love reviews, suggestions to make the story better, etc. I hope I will be able to get more up, since I now know how the story is finally going to shape up.

Considering sending in book one to a publisher to see if it goes over well. I'm not remaining optimistic due to the tough standards.

Thanks to everyone who's read, reviewed, just passed through.
