Author has written 19 stories for Fantasy, General, Song, Life, Sci-Fi, and General.

So, I don’t exactly have that much to say about myself. I like writing and reading. What more needs to be said about me?

My hiatus is over, again. new stuff on the way.

Comments are greatly appreciated so please leave comments. If you have critique, I want that as much, if not more than praise, but whether your leaving praise or critique, be specific, and be mature and thoughtful. Comments like: "it sucks" are none of these things. Finally, don’t toot your own horn, if you leave a review, I will at least read your writing, unless you ask me to, then I WILL NOT ever read your writing on principle.

One more thing: if you don't see a change in the story based on a comment or I don't respond to you, don't think I've ignored what you said, I have taken what you said into account, but I may want it the way for a reason you have not yet seen, maybe I just haven't gotten around to it, or maybe I'm just feeling highly Introverted and don't want to talk, as is normally the case.


Stories: an extended summary and their status

The Sword of Thenos
Action/Fantasy

Michael is a Slayer, specializing in the killing of Vampires. He was wronged by Vampires long ago and has spent his longer than normal life hunting and killing them. His travels bring him to Traviir with a plan to end the Vampires forever, but with Fate as a mistress, things can get strange, fast.

(I am currently laying down the outline and groundwork to rewrite this from the ground up, expect a new story soon)

A Conflict of Interests
Sci-fi/mystery

Humanity has come far, through the Cataclysm, the Empire, and fire besides. But can humanity overcomes the greatest enemy it will ever know? What part is yet to be played by a mysterious alien race? And what does Jenya have to hide?

(I'm working on this as I can, chapter 2 is up and in a more finished state. obviously any comments are greatly apprciated.)

Songs, Poems, and such

Drawing Red Lines: its about addiction specifically porn, told from the point of a prostitute
Just Breathing: A reflection on American culture and the way we go through life
Solace: A piece about true love (not romantic love)
Death Came Knocking: Three verse, the first is about refusing to give up, the second is about refusing the give in,
and the last is about accepting what happened and moving on.
Stagnate: a short poem about feeling lonely and left behind.
Classic Murder: It was a fun song to write.
Blackout: Another fun song to write. It's hard to explain the song without simply telling you: "read it"
Prey: This is, as the description says, an experiment in form. The actual meaning is more complicated.
Betrayal: After more than three years I'm finally coming to terms with a pornography addiction, and this song lays my heart bare before God and man.
Open only to Close: I'll tell you what it's about when someone explains to me what I meant.

If you take the time to read and review me, I will at the very least take the time to read through some of your writing (though it may take a while on my schedule).
