Author has written 23 stories for General.

I am a 24-year-old college student from La Crescenta, CA. In addition to writing, my hobbies include birdwatching and acting. My favorite bands are "Weird Al" Yankovic, Garbage, Nine Inch Nails, and Metallica, although I actually have very eclectic taste, and will listen to almost anything. The same applies to my taste in films: I can like anything. My favorite TV shows include: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Criminal Minds, CSI, Gilmore Girls, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, and That 70's Show.

My stories here and at FanFiction.net (where I have the same username) will frequently revolve around the characters I have created for original stories of mine that will inevitably be sent off to publishers, once I get around to writing them. Here on Fiction Press, the idea is that I will place these characters, whoever might be appropriate, into various situations, both canon and non-canon. Canon storylines are all connected, taking place in the same fictional universe I've created, and make up the "official" history in my story world. Non-canon stories will mostly be experimental pieces for me, putting my characters into hypothetical situations for your enjoyment. Their (canon) character histories will remain largely the same in non-canon storylines, however. It will be indicated whether or not a story is canon.

I hope you enjoy reading my work.

SEASONS OF LOVE

"Seasons of Love" is a serial comedy-drama focusing on the complicated relationship between two California high schoolers, Kent Thomas and Holly Snow. Read their story from when they first met as sophomores in fall 2007 to their eventual graduation in summer 2010. In addition to Kent and Holly, the series will also focus on the relationships of a steadily expanding supporting cast of characters.

This canon series will be divided into three seasons: Autumn (10th grade, 2007-2008), Winter (11th grade, 2008-2009), and Spring (12th grade, 2009-2010), each numbering around 20-25 episodes, appearing irregularly.
