Author has written 12 stories for Fantasy, Nature, Religion, Life, General, Supernatural, and Spiritual.

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, 12 and almost 6, when I updated this.

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 to fill my fantasy and horror needs. I waste a lot of time reading mangas and webtoons, watching Netflix, and reading in general, when I'm not parenting, keeping house, or writing.

I am a cancer survivor as of this spring, I don't really have any ideas or poems about that yet. It didn't really affect me too much. I was cool whether I stayed or went. I do believe in heaven and Jesus and consider myself a Jesus follower, so I wasn't worried at all. "He works all things together for the good of those who love him and called to his purpose," my paraphrase of Romans 8:28.

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

I am no longer working on Some Other. Since it is not done, I don't want to start posting and have the same problem I had with The Veil. So that means I won't be posting The Veil prequel either. I'm still working on Temple of the Con Dar and would like to start posting next year. My focus is going to be on Con Dar and The Hunter Chronicles. I found a publisher I want to submit HM to so I'm going to be working hard on that and on trying to nail down the story for VW. Meanwhile, if anyone is out there reading this... (crickets chirping) I'm not good at editing myself so if you would like to help me out, let me know. You can PM me, or read and write a review. :)

As a warning, I was approached by an editor for a site called Dreame, it is an actual online platform for web novels. They own the rights to your content if you post with them and you do get promised money if your story gets popular, unlike fictionpress where I continue to own my content and make no money. I don't want to give up the rights of my stories so if you are contacting me and that's your plan, sorry. If you post here and get contacted do your research. If you want to be an actual published author, those sites are not for you or for me. Maybe I think too highly of my abilities as a writer, :{ but for now, that's the plan.

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!

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

Temple of the Con Dar, the first chapter is up! I'm excited. This is a first draft and I'm looking for help with it since this is my first fantasy with magic and having to explain how it works is hurting my brain a little so help is always appreciated.

Vampire World, I'm going to be working on this trying to get it finished.

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.

I offer here a humble poem of personal soul searching.

With all the constructive comments I've gotten, it will be completely rewritten at some point once I've gotten a more firm story in mind.
