Author has written 27 stories for Sci-Fi, Romance, Fantasy, Supernatural, Essay, and Thriller.
I'm a twenty-something author/archaeologist from Florida. My fiction (or at least some of it) is based largely upon what I see and observe in life, as well as some of the jobs I've held over the years.
I hope you enjoy it. If you're into fanfiction, I'm on Fictionpress's sister site, Fanfiction.net as Hiron Otsuki, so you can find me there.
So here's the deal with the stories; what's going on and what's not.
The Siren's Name: Marcell Thenalium had long wanted a steady life complete with a home that didn't drift with the wind and a girl that didn't leave with the morning, but in her dreams it had never come with a half-dead arm and a crown that tied her down. A strange rescue on the high seas leads to royal intrigue, love, and a ball that will see the beginning of a new age in Thenalium.
Flesh Trail: Sequel to Ash Road. Parker Bell is now one of the most famous necromancers in the world. After dealing with the mass zombie rising that led to Operation David, a mass exodus of Jewish zombies who wanted to pay one last pilgrimage to the land of Israel, she's ready to return home and go back to her "day job" of raising the dead for money. Now she's been brought in as a consultant to raise a thousand-year old warrior mummy for a local museum, but the problem is that the mummy's soul is already haunting the museum. Can you raise a body with its soul nearby, even though they've been separated for over a millenium? Parker doesn't know, but a soul trapped in a decaying body might be the worst kind of hell, and such a zombie might want to share its pain.
Kitsune: Thousands of years ago, the K'Kitsune committed genocide on the lesser race called Kitsune, the mutated next generation of the species. Now they're invading the galaxy, system by system. Raheli T'avii came to our planet to destroy it. Then she met Morgan.
The Phoenix Tree: Jareth finds herself afflicted with the curse that only comes to one person every twenty years and leaves them (and all too often a good number of her fellow villagers) dead. It comes and recedes with a thick, unnatural fog that cuts off most travel out of the village when the curse reaches its zenith. Like many Cursed before her, Jareth wants to find a cure, but to do that she's going to have to find the spirit of the woman who changed the curse into what it is in Jareth's day. But the cure, like truth, can be subverted like any other, especially when the followers of the Sun God are involved.
Please note that the prefix on an summary of -FF-, FF, or whatever combination including "FF" encased in whatever two punctuation marks that Fictionpress is accepting that day, denotes a story with lesbian content.
Ashes, Dust, Skin, The Frog King, and Twelve are all in the same continuum. Dust picks up right where Ashes left off, and Skin occurs before, during, and after both Ashes and Dust. Twelve is a sequel to both Skin and The Frog King.
Ash Road is the first book in the Parker Bell series. It is followed by Flesh Trail, Blood Highway, and Organ Alley.
And just so you know, most of my stories here will revolve around lesbians and their love lives. The only current exceptions to that rule are Disaster Area, Blood Countess, Killing Dante, the heterosexual version of Kitsune, and Snow Angel.
I hope you enjoy it. If you're into fanfiction, I'm on Fictionpress's sister site, Fanfiction dot net as Hiron Otsuki, so you can find me there if you wish.

Good Mourning Publishing included Fire on Babylon in its anthology, Accessible Love Stories in 2012, which includes six stories about romance between wheelchair-bound characters and the non-disabled people who fall in love with them. If you read my writing for the same-sex romance, three of the six stories in the anthology are about same-sex couples, though mine is the only lesbian couple.
