Author has written 4 stories for Action, Essay, and Fantasy.

'Coeur Noir' is french for 'Black Heart,' a variant of my usual user/pen name 'Rabe Herzen,' which is 'Raven Heart' in German...it makes me seem dark and deep, which...I'm sort of not.

In fact, I'm just that one "weird," shy girl we all vaguely know. The one who can only successfully speak to about twelve people.

I spend far too much time writing, drawing sporadic bits and pieces of inspiration from just about everything- especially novels like The Silence of the Lambs (Thomas Harris,) Rabbit Factory (Marshal Karp,) Darkly Dreaming Dexter (Jeff Lindsay) and Skin (Dekker's only good book,) films like The Crow, games like Fallout, Elder Scolls, and anything by Bioware. My biggest inspiration is without a doubt music...mostly punk, thrash metal, industrial, and jazz...

A social life won't be the reason for stalled updates because I don't really have one. [This is now kind of a lie! I got a social life. All at once. It is utterly terrifying.]

...I like satire...and symbolism...so it's safe to assume that almost everything I write probably has some thinly-veiled meaning or another...

I have to say, my stories are probably more expressive of me than this little blurb.

Feel free to contact me if you feel compelled to do so. (I know I just seem so warm and welcoming.)

The Deserters reviews
After the complete depletion of non-renewable resources, The Division War breaks out, sending world's progress backwards. In the aftermath a century later, the ravaged U.S. has settled split into three greatly different regions. A sarcastic mercenary joins three other runaways as they face a group of old adversaries. Fun satire. Rated M for violence, language, and violent themes.

Blood of the Damned reviews
As tensions between the nation's two most powerful races build, multiple unnatural encounters urge a young elven Huntress to reconsider the motives of the brewing war. There will be no humans falling in love with vampires in this considerably atypical supernatural fantasy story. Involves demons and other supernatural beings, both original and from fable. Rated mostly for violence.

Reflection
Hailey Priest, an esteemed serial killer-turned-vigilante assassin, knows very well her target deserves death…but she finds herself unable to deliver it. Her target reminds her too much of herself. Very short story rated, just to be safe, for mild violence and violent themes.

Son of Sam reviews
An essay about the New York serial killer David Berkowitz. It was there taking up space on my computer, so I put it to work. Rated for the fact that it's about a serial killer. Somewhat graphic.
