Author has written 8 stories for General, General, Fantasy, Life, and Love.

Hallo all.

I am a freshman at college (Portland State University) this year, and I shall likely be an anthropology major and writing minor (I'm trying to decide if I should work something more useful in there, too...). Of course, that is why I am taking Turkish, a philosophy course, and Faith & Reason my first term. Wouldn't want to take anything pertinent, would we?

I apologize in advance if I should say anything rude or overly critical. Whilst I admit in full my mediocrity and inadequacy as a writer, I still have a nasty habit of being cynical, presumptive, critical, and on occasion rude when I comment on prose. 'Tis all in an effort to be helpful, but, alas and alack, in can come off in a way not so pleasant. So, be forewarned, whilst your work may have its good qualities, I probably won't focus on that... unless it is truly good, in which case I mean whatever compliments I shower upon you.

Otherwise... most of my prose/fiction tends toward fantasy and "magical realism", and my poetry toward loaded allegory concerning personal issues. My interests, hopes, dreams, themes, etc., are irrelevant, and will no doubt reveal themselves better than I could ever hope to explain.

Cheers.
