Author has written 60 stories for Fantasy, General, Supernatural, Fable, Sci-Fi, Horror, General, and Spiritual.
There used to be a long blurb about who I am and what I'm like taking up space on this page.
I've changed since I wrote it.
Here's who I am now:
Solemn Coyote's rules of literature:
1) This rule or the rule below it may be disregarded at any time.
2) Never assume that I know all the rules.
-Queue is open.
Ask me to write a story for you. Here's some proof I will.
-"The Rose of Whitekeep." Completed. Started as a tribute to my friend and fellow author, Sabraeal, this story eventually mutated into a 42 page beast. It even has a plot arc of sorts. Be forewarned, however. RoW is intended as a parody of fanfic and as such obeys many of the cliches of the genre. Elves, magical teenage girls, best friends forever, and dresses abound.
-"Stop the Press." Discontinued. Written by various folks, and championed by Burnt Bread. No longer serialized, but fourteen issues long. This thing was intended as a quirky magazine for writers, and gave a lot of us a chance to hone our non-fiction skills.
-"Getting Heated." Completed. A lot of the concepts worked into this story were inspired or borrowed from a friend of mine, who was working on a pen-and-paper rpg that I hijacked for my setting.
-"Reading Red." Not available. A marathon review of Burnt Bread's "Smoke and Mirrors" and an appalling lack of sleep swirled together to produce this aggregate. It's a pretty simple character study, and it's not posted anywhere at the moment. Perhaps if you prevail upon Bread's incredible carbohydrate-based magnanimity, it'll find its way onto ficpress.
-"Dig." Incomplete. Not exactly a sequel to "Getting Heated," but it features a few of the same characters and is part of the same continuity.
And here's some stuff that awesome people have created for me.
-"Knight of Wands" Drawn by: Burnt Bread. Unimpeachable proof of the faculty that wheat-based life-forms have for art.
-"Four Women Jarod Has Kissed." Written by: Sabraeal. Status: complete. It takes everything that my "Ashes to Emily" was supposed to be and makes it beautiful. And it has a Lazarus-hamster.
Stuff People Have Published:
-"Scheherazade": Debuted in the 2009 spring edition of the Short Cuts literary magazine from UMASS. Probably a little late to get a copy, but that's what this profile is for.
-"Prometheus Misplaced": Featured in the December '09 edition of Kasma magazine for the period of one year, which had me all kinds of psyched. Definitely check them out if you feel so inclined. Their site is at
