Author has written 22 stories for Sci-Fi.

My style of writing is odd. I like to take a merger of ideas I like and make something from them. I write for fun and I like writing great stories people will enjoy reading. I mostly do Sci Fi action adventures or Crossovers but eventually, when I feel comfortable I will branch out into more original fiction.

Flight of the Raptor is nothing more than Fan Fiction, if it isn't mine, I didn't come up with it. These stories are meant for enjoyment and not profit and all non-original materials belong to their rightful owners.

This series is not really written chronologically, I have been working on it for over 20 years and occasionally I remember things I forgot to do or see gaps in the narritive that I wish to field. This is why there is a weird numbering system for the stories.

I write for fun and it's therapeutic and I'm a one-man operation I do the best I can. I have no illusions that this will ever be anything beyond what it is.

I generally post on furaffinity but I am trying to reach a wider audience.

Just a point of note, I do not use the chapter feature. Each story is stand alone.
