Author has written 22 stories for Fantasy, General, Fantasy, Horror, Humor, Mystery, Supernatural, and Sci-Fi.

I am now a doctoral psychology student living in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I am formerly of Williamsburg, Virginia, and before that I grew up a small, boring, hateful, town in the frozen wasteland known to many as Vermont. But I've finally moved to a tropical climate. In between reading massive textbooks, I intend to attempt at continuing to write. It's a type of catharsis for me, and I think it also keeps me in practice. And who knows, maybe I'll get published and make enough money to pay off my student loans, wouldn't that be nice? I also recently opened an Associated Content account under the same pen name, EnemyWithin. I intend to transfer much of my work from this website onto that one, but I will also keep this account. If you like my stories, please visit them on Associated Content, because then I may get paid for it. The direct link to my profile is: http://contributor.yahoo.com/user/1122453/enemywithin.html

I'm going to leave the summaries of my unfinished works here, and I may return to them one day. I was recently re-reading the reviews I got for Dreamland Saga, and it makes me want to get back to it, but I can't make any promises. Dreamland Saga kind of took on a life of it's own, and now I don't have any idea what to do with it. But I do want to get back to eventually. I've begun an anthology of interconnected short stories centered around a character named Salvador Selerani. Not all of the stories are about him, however, I want to flesh out all of the main characters as much as possible. I'm tying in two previously stories previously published as standalone stories, The Selerani Room and Paradox. They will each be part of the anthology and the storylines begun in them will be continued in the anthology.

Dreamland Saga is my continuing work, a story set in a world only accessible to mortals of Earth through dreams. Once, the old gods ruled there, but the second Lightning War saw the end of Jove's rule. Now, a being known as Dark Chaos holds the world in his grasp, but to most of the people he is as much a myth as the old gods and the Lightning Wars. However, his primary agent Astaroth is a cold reality, as he is the mysterious and often brutal man that leads the Cult of Prevailing Darkness and combs the realm for heretics. But a rebel group known as the Paladins, disciples of the dead Apollo, have managed to release Artemis from her exile. Changes are occuring all over the world, as a band of mortal misfits journey to Astaroth's castle to rescue a friend, a reluctant acolyte of Dark Chaos fights his inner demons, a trio of prodigies discover a book of strange words and stranger possibilities deep within the vaults of the Academy Triad, and Artemis herself tries to unravel the secrets of Dark Chaos. I'm not very good at summaries, so just give it a shot and tell me what you think. The first book will be called The Dance of Dawn and Twilight. The second book will be called Prevailing Darkness and Rising Chaos. The third book is sort of up in the air, but I think it will be called The Last Lightning War.
