Author has written 25 stories for Life, General, Religion, Family, General, Love, and Fantasy.

Side note: I like reviews, as do most people. I do not, however believe in a 'you scratch my back I'll scratch yours' policy on reviews. If you review something of mine and I have something interesting to say in reply, then I'll do so. Otherwise I won't. I will go and read some of your work. But I only review things when I have a lot to say, so I don't want to send a lot of useless reviews out there with only a couple of sentences that really mean "well you read mine, so I ought to return the favor, but to be honest nothing about this piece really strikes me enough to generate meaningful content." I don't like that kind of review, so I'm not going to propagate it. That being said, I do really and truly appreciate any and all reviews I've gotten, and just because I don't believe in reciprocal reviewing doesn't mean I dislike those who do. On the contrary, I admire them, because they're doing something I don't have the time/patience/talent for.

Oh also, while on the subject of reviews: The Review Game Forum is pretty awesome.

Side note 2: I should probably mention that I'm really not religious. I'm an atheist. I just think that religion and myths are interesting.
