About my Stories:

In Progress

First Person Shooter- When four geeky teens decide to play a video game, they find their gameplay has interesting results for their own life. But when the game starts to gain more and more power over them, they have to ask: Who is the A.I and just how interactive can the game get? Will be fifty thousand words by the end of January.

The Darkest Part of Twilight- My attempt at a non-cliche vampire novella. 12-14 chapters long. A rewrite of Keeping Up With the Joneses. Inspired by Stephen King's 'Salem's Lot .

The House of Orpheus

Complete or On Hiatus

Sub Rosa

The Burr Hole

A Place in Space

They Call Me Pygmalion

A Tail of Tidely Relations- I just realized that this story needs editing bad. Like, really bad.

The House of Eight- They spin your fate on your loom and shape you as you'd play with a string of thread Be prepared for spider references. Many spider references. Experimental piece.

It Came From Behind the Mirror- On Halloween night a self-conscious Bloody Mary and a psychotic Spring Heeled Jack set out to main/maul a victim, but it doesn't turn out as expected. Written for the Roadhouse Writing Contest Game. Sorta experimental piece.

Mary: http://i1035.photobucket.com/albums/a434/HalfHeartedBing/scan0009.jpg

Speechless- I think this might be a demented version of Maximum Ride or Flowers for Algernon. I honestly have no idea. Experimental piece.

And So We Float- A metaphor of life, inspired by an awesome book. Experimental piece.

A Little Bird Told Me- I was writing A Tail of Tidely Relations and I had one of the characters mention the Seven Deadly Sins. So I personified them and wrote some drabbles. Be prepared to laugh nervously. (In no way is this meant to be religious)

Listen and You Will Hear- Weird stuff. Children who are afraid of the dark for very good reasons. Dolls get murdered, things whisper in the night, and some implied sororicide. Tons of fun to write.

Maybe I'm Dreaming- I had three dreams and I tried to combine them. I ended up with this.

Our Lady of Darkness- I might rewrite this once I finish with A Tail of Tidely Relations, I'm actually quite fond of it.


Upcoming

Its All in the Family- It'll be horror for a reason, let's just leave it at that.
