Author has written 7 stories for General, Romance, and Young Adult.

Hi, I'm on hiatus! I'm--not exactly 'working through' emotions, but all the words I'm trying to say keep coming out weird, so until I can get my shit together, I'm on hiatus. I think I had a semi-decent run giving it a go. If you're interested in my work, please do review. Sometimes that assists me getting out of my funk. In the meantime, thanks!

I mainly write asexual romance. I don't write sex.

Regarding projects:

If there's an old one you remember me having written, and it's not here: hi! I took it down. I probably wrote it in high school and I want to believe my writing is better than that now.

Enigmatic Frequencies: finished/hiatus/abandoned. Kept because I still really, really like Quinn.
Winging It: sequel to Enigmatic Frequencies. Hiatus until I figure out where I'm going with it/where I have my file. Deals with life after marriage, including adoption, infidelity, etc.
Autumn Moon: semi-hiatus, but still ongoing. A fair bit of this is actually written, but in pieces that I need to patch together to make a cohesive story. Deals with asexual romance, and romantic identities.
Shadowed: finished. Prequel to Autumn Moon, though many things have changed. Not necessary to read this first. Deals with child abuse.
Objective Journalism: ongoing. Just a silly little project I'm writing in between Autumn Moon. See also: Fake-Dating-But-I'm-Actually-In-Love-With-You-This-Sucks.
: unpublished. Space drama written similar to Winging It. About a merry team of space travelers trying to right the universe again. Super cliche, just for fun.
Ritualistic: finished. Just a short-story with the characters from Autumn Moon. Might add more short stories should anyone be interested.

Ondes by Stephen Dockers reviews
Someone wise once said 'People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.' My family never followed this advice, and now...our walls just might be cracking. Slash, swearing, brothercest. Inspired by Radiohead...strange as that is.

Heaven Bound by fishtanks reviews
I try to fool myself into believing something's there, that he wants me as much as I want him, but there's nothing. Even if there was, I can't do that to him. I can't do that to any of us. Incest, slash.

He's just not sure what it is he wants, yet. Asexual romance, slash, mxm.

Objective Journalism reviews
It's not sex appeal that draws me to him, not that his confidence isn't attractive as hell. He keeps his eyes hooded as he pulls at my collar. Keeps that grin as he says, "Never thought about sleeping with me?" / Two friends meet again years after college, when Reese is tasked with following Jack's story after he's outed. Slash, MxM.

Winging It reviews
Okay, maybe the pretentious poets are right. Maybe life isn't as much of a piece of cake as Quinn's used to thinking. Navigating the sea of responsibilities and adulthood beyond college and marriage? Yeah. Not so simple. / Sequel to Enigmatic Frequencies. / Slash, MxM.

Enigmatic Frequencies reviews
Everyone tries to make life sound so profound and depressing. Except Quinn, because, if he's being honest, his face really was meant to be smiling, not frowning. / slash, m/m. / accidental temporary student/teacher / Complete

Matthew has never measured up to his father's expectations – at least, not in traditional terms. Warning: heavy abuse.
