Author has written 6 stories for Fantasy, General, Manga, and Essay.

Don't really know what to say... I like to write. I am a LTJG in the United States Navy, currently stationed in Japan, but during sea duty who knows where the hell I am. Half the time I don't even know, and I'm the one driving the damned ship.

As you can see by reading the stories I've written, I have a difficult time keeping a serious tone. That's because I'm not a serious guy. Don't get me wrong, I can write serious stuff, and I think it's usually pretty good, but my "default" writing style is a sly, more subtle humor. When I go for genre writing, at least one character is a smartass to varying extents. I usually use myself as the inspiration for that character, but by definition they don't make good main characters. Usually they're friends of the hero.

I don't have anything that I'm overly passionate about, except maybe playing ice hockey. I've been playing since I was four, and after brief stints in baseball and football (3 years and 2 years, respectively), hockey's where my heart is. I'm a great player, and the fastest guy I know.

A little note about reviews. I don't understand why people get so uptight when their stories don't get them. Writing itself should be all the reason you need (boy, do I sound full of myself). I mean, I LIKE reviews, of course. I'm just not about to give up on anything I'm working on 'cause no one else seems to like the story enough to praises me (which is, let's be honest, what we all really want in our reviews). I like my stories. I like to think they're damned good. Except for the earlier stuff, haha.

You can drop me a line if you want, but since I never usually want to with others there's no reason to expect you to want to do so with me. Sorry if I came off like a jerk. I'm not. (Hopefully.)

Alpha Team Alpha reviews
At a training facility for genetically engineered teenage soldiers, a cadet with the lowest performance rating is assigned to a team composed of the most elite students - who happen to all be girls. A pure geek fantasy.

Why I Don't Read Your Stories reviews
Fairly self explanatory. There is a lot out there that irritates me, and after years of silent suffering I've decided to vent my frustration. Although this is mostly self therapy, I'm sure there are others out there who feel as I do, so I opted to share.

The Tristal Chronicles reviews
All Jason, Richard, and Tony wanted to do was go camping and get drunk. Unfortunately fate had other plans, and now they've been selected to protect a fantasy kingdom from an ancient evil bent on conquering the land. You know, that old story.

Stephen Dies reviews
This rather mean-spirited comment on religion finds your humble author at the gates of Heaven, where an unusual situation causes St. Peter to take him to see God for help.

When Mike begins seeing strange visions during a trip to an old mansion for a "good, old-fashioned Christmas," he realizes those visions are trying to warn him of a tragic accident from a Christmas long ago.

Fanfiction.net reviews
Ever wonder why your submitted stories never seem to get reviews? Read about one of my typical visits to this admittedly wonderful site (in the dreaded "stream-of-conscious" format) to find out what the problems might be.
