Author has written 11 stories for Fantasy, Nature, Religion, Life, General, and Supernatural.

I graduated from Penn State University in 2003 with an English degree. I have been writing poetry (more to come) since I was 14, and fiction since I was 16. I enjoy reading fictions of all kinds, and I enjoy writing it as well.

I am married. We will have our 14 year anniversary this June. I have two kids, 9 and almost 3, when I wrote this.

I will try to stay on target for HM. Right now I should be finished posting by June, but I'm just not sure how life will go the next few months. My husband and I are going on a nearly all expenses paid Mediterranean cruise, to Greece... can I even express how much I love Greek mythology and ancient Greece!!! (The entire beginning of the Hunter stories starts there.) That's in June, my brother is getting married right before we go, my daughter's third birthday too... And I have to have surgery. Long story short, a cancer scare and lots of genetic testing later, I have a non-cancerous mass (nodule) on my thyroid. It will one day be cancerous or at least I have a 90% chance, oh and it runs in the family so I'm getting rid of it. Had the surgery 4/20. Not so bad, when compared to a c section. It's the same day surgery so really no big deal after thinking I was going to need radiation and a quick surgery. Update 5/12 have to have a second surgery. Turns out it was aggressive cancer soooo I have to have another surgery to remove the rest of my thyroid. Next surgery is 5/18. Oh an no cruise _(

I'm a hopeless romantic, and all my stories have a romantic theme to them. I also throw in religious stuff too just for fun.

My favorite authors are Jane Austen, CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, and James Matherson. I am currently reading R. A. Salvatore, H. P. Lovecraft, and Terry Pratchett and WarCraft to fill my fantasy and horror needs. I waste a lot of time reading mangas, watching Netflix, and reading in general, when I'm not parenting, keeping house, or writing.

I will always review your work if you review mine, no matter the review. :)

I am working to double the amount of words in my chapters and then I will start posting Some Other... chapters.


Various poems, I read through them and corrected the misspellings. Cried again for The One I Lost.

The Veil, at least this version is done. I plan to rewrite it in the future that's the only way to fix its many problems. That will be a while. Sorry. I'm leaving it up so I don't look like I can't finish anything... don't have a lot of stuff. I spent a decade working on this darn story. I'm keeping it up for now!

Rise of the King, The Veil prequel, I have a few chapters of this I may post after I have posted my Some Other chapters. Coming by 2019.

Hunters Moon, is finished. Special thanks to my sister for the cool cover picture of Kara!

Some Other, I'm trying to come up with another title. Nothing yet, but after HM I will be fixing the two chapters I have and posting several more. I will have seven in total.

Temple of the Con Dar, a new series of fantasy for me. Out of nowhere in my recovery I've gotten totally inspired to write this story. I have four chapters done... Of course for me that means they aren't done/done, but I may post these too especially if the inspiration keeps up. Coming in 2019.

Vampire World, The sequel to Hunter's Moon is on hold, I'm kinda stuck. It will be years before I have sequels to post after I'm done with Hunter's Moon. :( Unless I hit a big inspiration bump.


I currently live in south New Jersey. I don't ever want to move again! Until I move back to PA when I'm old and gray--will happen sooner than I think! Darn another gray hair!

Love Out Of Time by Woedin reviews
Please talk to each other dear friends, if you wish to avoid losing something you may have falsely believed you could never lose. Love can absolutely conquer all, and true love can ever blossom, as long as it's not taken for granted. A harsh lesson I would spare any caring person if I could. I offer here a humble poem of personal soul searching.
