I am a flexible, creative writer with many years of experience. I have a talent for accurate character-writing and development, and unusual, fascinating plot twists.

If you have a plot idea but no characters, I can create compelling characters to enact your plot for you, timed and embellished to perfection.

If you have characters that you want to see in action but aren’t sure what you want them to do, I can write an exciting plot with your characters as the stars.

Why not drop me a line?

Commission: Matt the Living Statue
Matt is a shy engineering student. One day he is transformed into a statue and remains like that, alive and aware but utterly paralyzed, for 7 years. This is the story of his learning to cope with that, and his eventual release. Very psychological in nature - give it a try!

Commission: The Great Enslavement
Jai the raccoon and his anthro friends live an untroubled life in the forest - except for the usual frictions of friendship. But it doesn't remain that way forever. When an adventure goes horribly wrong, he and the shyest of his pals are thrown into a hostile world. Most of the writing was by me except for the introductory scene which was completed by one of my supporting writers.

COMMISSION: Case 173849: The Dry Dead reviews
Zane the tiger shark is a rookie in the Paranormal Division, but his new investigative partner and superiors are strangely reluctant to tell him very much. All of this makes his first mission... interesting. Several Egyptian furs have been found dehydrated to death, probably by something uncanny. Zane will learn much on this mission.

COMMISSION: Fabulous Furlesque! reviews
Apes the lioness finds that her jewels have been stolen right before her burlesque performance. How will she manage without her Big Finish? This piece contains a depiction of a strip, but it's not about boobs and bottoms - it's about jewels and dancing.

COMMISSION: An Android's Friend reviews
Three anthropomorphic friends visit the beach for the day. But one of the group, a cyborg, struggles to understand the natural environment she finds herself in. Cute with a happy ending and, if I flatter myself, a clever twist.

The LIFE Project reviews
The idea, originated by Ramson Plusher: change the law to allow heterospecies love to blossom. It should have solved one of the biggest Palantean problems of all time. This is a series of love stories, and an introduction to The L.I.F.E Project.

Weaver Fever reviews
Mase Papertree the chout is seventeen and adulthood beckons. The chouts of Palantis experience an annual weaving instinct and Mase's has just developed, but his first nest is no work of art... Rated T to be sure and for Mase's specialty - swearing.
