Wow, so much for regular updates...

Almost as soon as I got into a rhythm of writing and uploading my work situation turned on it's head (again). Hopefully my job is starting to steady out again and I will have more time to devote to writing and updating soon.

"With The Sky Changing" now has another chapter posted, with more to come hopefully soon.


Writing is what I do when an idea for a story refuses to leave me alone. It's kind of like when you get a song stuck in your head and only listening to it makes it go away. When I get an idea stuck, I start writing it. Often that means a new idea will hijack my time and inspiration from an ongoing story. This is why I have so many posted and unfinished. I try to get back to all of them, but it's hard to write a story when all I can think about it a different one entirely. All I can say is I am sorry for long waits between chapters.

Another thing I do when I have free time and spare inspiration is draw. Mostly I draw characters from my stories, but I'll doodle just about anything out of my imagination. I've put a few of my drawings on DeviantArt. Feel free to check them out at http:// Most of my main characters from "And Wind Makes Fire Dance" have a portrait posted there.

Fanfiction ideas hijack my brain just as easily as original ideas, so feel free to check out my modest complement of fanfics at They mostly tend to be short, introspective pieces about my favorite characters from various fandoms.

Read and review if you wish, constructive criticism is always appreciated. If you review I will try to always reply and return the favor by reviewing something of yours. Knowing how much a review means to me, I try to give them out as much as possible. (Spread the love!) I do want to send a big thank you to everyone who has reviewed something of mine, you've all been such wonderful motivators. Thank you all!


Story Status (I'll try to keep this updated, but no promises)

And Wind Makes Fire Dance - COMPLETE - I am still editing this one periodically, and I will let you know if I upload any major changes.

With The Sky Changing - The long awaited (at least by me) sequal to "And Wind Makes Fire Dance!" Chapter six is up!

Modified Souls - COMPLETE - Now cut into (smaller) sections per reader request. Newly edited and (in my opinion anyways) better than before. :)

Modified Souls: Second Soul - COMPLETE! - Final part is up! Please leave feedback and let me know what you think of the end :)

Travels and Travails of a Questing Party - aside from possessing an absurdly long title...this story was conceived as both a humorous escape from writing drama and angst, and as a way of poking well meaning fun at old cliche RPG-esque fantasy. I hope it's as much fun to read as it is to write :)

In the Rhythm of the Newborn - Whoa. I updated it. Chapter 6 is up! Don't get your expectations up though, writing this one is going to go sloooow.

Project 16 - I finally made the updating rounds to this one! yay for 4

To Break The Line - I think I broke the line where I usually give up on stories, so maybe I'll manage to keep updating this. :)

Crimson and Sand - '08 NaNoWriMo attempt. Inspiration aside, nothing is moving on this one at the moment.

Travels and Travails of a Questing Party reviews
Araner knows more deadly curses than any other, yet he's sworn never to kill another with his magic. Between uncooperative merchants, thieving rodents, strange companions, and stranger adversaries, however, that vow is going to be well tested.

And Wind Makes Fire Dance reviews
Magic users have been hunted nearly to extinction, but two that have survived are now trapped. Trapped by the sprawling cities, the police forces hunting them, and a job from their crime lord boss that seems way too easy.

Jin's long gone, and somehow I've ended up with a life that I could almost call perfect. If only it weren't all a ruse. For a time that might feel like forever I've lived this peaceful life. But we all know there's no such thing as forever.

To Break The Line reviews
Each world has them, like Yin and Yang, day and night, sun and shadow, and always struggling. This time they're recruiting allies, and when they find each is after the same one it turns into a cosmic game of tug-o-war with five human teenagers as the rope

I've been on the run since they ordered me killed, but now I've got the kid along too. Didn't know what I was getting into when the doc asked me to look after him. It doesn't matter how badly they want us dead or back in their hands. I'm not going back.

A handful of rebels struggle against a corrupt galaxywide republic, but Tefarel cares nothing for that. He's a thief who works for whoever hires him and his associates. That is until he's forced to protect the secret all the factions want desperately.
