Author has written 6 stories for Romance, and Fantasy.
June 6th, 2012: It's time for another great purge! Since FP and FF have decided to go through the system and wipe everything with Mature content (which you would think would be covered under M for mature, but hey, it's not my rules, right?), you may notice a serious lack of content within my stories. Never fear! All original writings can be found in their entirety at AFF: members.adultfanfiction.net/profile.php?no=1296766473 (Ah, FP, you still don't want me to put links in my profile, do you? Yet another reason to go.) And while you're there, you can get your dose of fanfics all at the same time without ever leaving the site! How great is that?! You MUST BE 18 in order to access AFF.net.
August 6th, 2010: It's that time of year again for me to be shocked and speechless: The summer round of SKoW has begun and I've just realized I've been nominated all over the place...what?! "Brier Wood" has been nominated for Best Lover's Spat and Best M-Rated. "Shooting From the Hip" has also been nominated for Best M-Rated Incomplete. And both "Shooting From the Hip" and "Gentlemen Ain't in Season" are up for Best Het Incomplete. Who did all that?! You guys are so sweet ;) I encourage everyone to visit the SKoW site and vote (not for me, really...the other stories there just blow me away! :)).

December 31st, 2009: HOLY CRAP! I've just been informed that "A Touch of Sight" won Best Written story for the FP Supernatural Story Awards! I didn't even know anyone nominated me! I just totally did a little dance :laughs: Well, that certainly just made this day a whole lot better - thanks, guys!! (And don't forget to check out the other brilliant winners @site!)
Thank you to the folks who continue to add me and my stories to their favorites and communities!
I was asked who are some of my favorite authors. Since I haven't really had the time recently between projects to read much around here, I'll give you some of my all-time favorite books.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas. I highly recommend this book if you've never read it. Get past the flowery language, push aside the image of Jim Caviezel as Edmond, and you will know what I am talking about. It is the ultimate book on getting the ultimate revenge.
The Kushiel Series by Jacqueline Carey. This is who I wish I could be. I don't think The Sundering series is quite as good, but she's still one of the most brilliant authors I've ever read, hands down.
Abundance by Sena Jeter Naslund. The story of Marie Antoinette written in first person from the Dauphine's point of view. I always hope the author will change the end...
Deerskin by Robin McKinley. A dark fantasy based on the old French fairytale Donkeyskin.
The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith. For all of you who are Twilight fans, stop reading this IMMEDIATELY! Because this series was the ORIGINAL Twilight, written nearly fifteen years before Meyer ever had her "dream." In truth, I have not read the Twilight series - nor will I ever. But I have passed The Vampire Diaries around to people who have and they were shocked and a bit appalled by the similarities and just down-right sameness they found between the two series. In fact, when the movie trailer for Twilight came out, I seriously thought it was a trailer for Smith's books. Twilight has been a very touchy subject with me every since. I recommend L.J. Smith's books even though they are YA fiction because, despite that, they are still some of the best vampire books I've ever read (And, yes, I will be buying the new novels in this series when they come out!).
I am currently working my way through House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski. Even if you have no interest in this book, you should look for it the next time you're at your local bookstore and just flip through it. It is as much of a visual treat as it is an intriguing novel. The typography towards the middle/end is insane.
A Few Random Bits About Me:
My screen name is pronounced SeeYou-Kid and comes from the nickname for the town I live in.
Along with writing, I draw (scribble, really), play the piano and guitar. I'm trying to teach myself how to play the harmonica and would really love to learn to play the banjo (I'm originally from the south, can you tell? :) )
I own more books than is probably healthy.
I love to watch scary movies by myself in the dark. I have yet to find one that has creeped me out as much as Event Horizon did.
Hm...I think that's about it. Questions? Comments? Concerns? E-mail or IM me! I always come off as so lame when I write these profile things, but I'm actually pretty friendly (a bit dorky, maybe) and don't bite (not usually, anyway...).
Someone asked awhile ago if I would post pictures of the characters from "Brier Wood." I hadn't planned to, but a spark of inspiration hit me and I just couldn't help myself. A sketch of Fallon can be found here:. Enjoy!
I've had this illustration for "A Touch of Sight" posted for awhile, just never got around to linking it here. http://cu-kid.deviantart.com/art/Temptation-92554195 (you'll need to be logged in to view it - lots of skin...)
Another character sketch, this one of Griffin Alder from "Shooting From the Hip." http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=ion=&q=griffinalder#/d2mcm5c (I can't seem to get the link button to work...)
