Author has written 5 stories for General, Essay, and Romance.

Writing more reviews is a 2020 goal


The Hedge to Somewhere: My newest longer lengthed fiction project.

Like Eiderdown & Disendowers: And like sex without the climax. A completed 39 month documentation of an author stabbing blindly into the fiction writing world. I mostly get reviews because I happily return them, but sometimes I like to imagine it's because people like my work.

Potpourri: Where I practice writing styles and tell stories about my life but don't mooch for reviews. Readers who comment anyway are rad and brimming with awesomesauce.

Spreading the Love:

All reviews over one line long (that's about 200 characters) for stories with "Reviews returned" in the description will be returned outside the Review Game. Length/quality-wise, I tend to give what I receive. I like constructive criticism. If you need to settle review debt but would oedipically gauge your eyes out before reading LE&D, feel free to review my other works instead.

Feel free to drop me a PM!

Love and the Arctic reviews
The Laugavegur trail in Iceland is a 35-mile trek that winds through snow-streaked mountains and lava fields, black sand desert and lush green forest. My friend and I finished it in two days. That was how long it took for him to convince me that while a relationship was out of the question, sleeping with him would be a great idea.

Sunflower Girl reviews
Her mother had advised her to catch a cab and not to worry about the cost, because Lanie's a Wall Street Professional now and should look and act the part. Then her mother told her to stay safe and avoid getting into cars whose drivers look like they could be kidnappers, murderers, rapists, or racists, who presumably also look and act the part. She takes the bus. Removed.
