Author has written 37 stories for Love, Nature, War, Politics, Life, Friendship, Fantasy, and Family.

Hey there! My name's Austin, I'm just your ordinary guy from a small backwater town in the small state of New Hampshire.

I made this account because as a guy I don't show much emotion and feeling in my day to day life, so when something that causes me to feel strongly about something happens I put it into words so that it doesn't build up. I guess its just my way of dealing with emotion =/

Other than that I'm a conservative republican that loves science fiction (especially the show Stargate-- I know its geeky, so what, bite me!), and I think JROTC rocks! Next year I'll be afourth year, and hopefully an officer, but i hold out no hope whatsoever (crosses fingers).

I hope you enjoy my work here, it's by no means professional writing, so don't get your hopes up haha

please feel free to give constructive critisism in your reviews, i really will try to improve based on your suggestions

and while you're at it check out some of my friends here on fiction press:
