Author has written 2 stories for General, and Family.

For the moment, I'm using this site as a place to post my fiction while I work on getting my own site organized. I'll probably keep most of them on here even after said organization is decided upon, though I may have some stories that will be on my own site only.

In addition, due to the restrictions that some magazines and other markets have on accepting work that's already been published (and apparently, posting online counts as having been published) my current selection of post-able original fiction is
Obviously that limitation does not apply to my fanfiction, as I can't get that published elsewhere without special permission, anyway.
I'll start with a couple of things that have been printed in the newspaper or my college's literary magazine, a few class assignments here and there. Maybe some random musing while I work out a particular concept in my main fiction, or attempts to get a story out of some weird dream or other. Things like that.

Beyond that, consider my account on this site a work-in-progress. Both because of the limited selection and my limited time while I pursue my Master's Degree.

And please visit my website (also a work in progress) and click on the ads. It will help contribute to my tuition. And if you have your own website, please consider linking to my site.

Thank you.

PS: A few warnings to prospective readers.

First, Any work I find from the quasi-distant past (grade school, high school, etc) will, at first, be posted in whatever form I have managed to retain; I will not edit these according to my current writing style and capabilities. There are exceptions, such as if I ever decide to recreate this one superhero story I'd written in the sixth grade. I remember what happened in the story...but I no longer have a copy of it, and can't remember the specifics of how I'd written it. And for those stories for which I have retained copies, I will, at need, correct for spelling and other mistakes.

Second, any work that I have written as class assignments will, regardless of my personal feelings for or against the piece, be identified in the author's notes according to what I'd originally written it for, and in what grade. As long as I don't mess up formatting, notes should be in bold, and divided from the actual work. If you don't want to read these, I won't be offended if you skip over them.

Third, author's notes will also sometimes include anecdotes associated with the piece I have submitted. The same "rules" apply to these as to the previous warning.

Fourth, two of the works presently posted are not stories at all, but poems. I may come across others as I continue to sort out my work, but I'm fairly certain those are the only ones I'd retained. Unless something truly strange happens, I will not write more.
I am not a poet. These two were originally written for class assignments.
That is all.

Her Spirit Lives On reviews
My dog died back in 2000, a month or so before my creative writing class was required to do a portfolio project. This is partly about her, partly as a comfort for anyone who has lost a pet, and partly to describe what I believe about the soul.
