Author has written 10 stories for Life, Young Adult, Romance, General, Love, Fantasy, Friendship, and Supernatural.

Another update, as things never seem to stay put in my life.

Oh, yeah, the stories. (That's probably why you're bothering to read this blurb at all, heh.) I do write a little, mostly for my own amusement. I write mainly because I get compulsions to create worlds...and...suffice to say, the idea badgers me until I break down and write. I don't do it to get published, or recognition, at least not beyond anything that a friend would critique and remark upon. The main reason I do write is to get better at it, and to learn from my previous mistakes. If I can produce something of merit before my death, that would be enough.

Updates on the status of my writings!

The Art of Love Letters is complete. I have thoroughly revised it, and added several new chapters. It's a very different beast altogether, and I discovered that it might not be the pile of garbage I thought it was! Whether it'll ever go back up is up in the air.

The tripartite short story, Sonata for a Lucid Dream, has been released, and is now complete. Bonus: I revised this story at a recent writing conference. I wonder how it flies now. Added the new story as a chapter of the old one.

Ordinary Girl is now complete! Guess I lied about not finishing it. Enjoy.

I'm completely rewriting Universe, which will encapsulate content from the original story and the unpublished sequel. Hopefully it'll be a much better story than it had been.

Ugly Girls Blame the Mirror is giving me trouble. I doubt I'll ever attempt to fix it up (although it is finished), but I have my doubts about the story.

Oh, and La Campanella Awards nominated Love Letters in two categories. Thank you to those who nominated me, whoever you are. SKoW also gave a nod for it in the non-romance category, but it didn't win. I didn't even know about it until the voting was over, hah. Update: Thank you, judges, for picking me for best plot twist in a story! I'm really grateful. Ironic that I'm changing it around so it's completely different now...

Sonata for a Lucid Dream reviews
There were many things pathetic about this life, but few things were as hopeless as being besotted--not in love--with a married man. There, she thought, I’ve dared to even admit it to myself.

Universe reviews
One lonely summer, Helen receives a mysterious visitor. She is kidnapped and retaught how to think, how to feel. When she returns, family and friends feel like strangers, and the ever-present threat of the one who took her remains. Light f/f stuff. Edit - It's rewrite time for this story! Whew.
