Author has written 3 stories for Action, and Fantasy.

I have ideas, but not really much time to write, sadly. I write whenever I have the opportunity, my stories may not be updated for a while, but I try my best not to abandon them (I did that in the past...)

I am particularily interested in gritty superhero and vigilante stories, drawing influence mainly from Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, as well as Kick-Ass, or films like The Boondock Saints and video games like the Streets Of Rage series. I also like cyberpunk and urban fantasy settings, and I might write those kinds of stories in the future. About my stories:

The Street Justice series are vigilante stories about a character named Blaze and his fight against drug kingpins, and his high school sidekicks who always get in the way. I would say these are semi-realistic stories, for they are grounded in the real world where there are no superpowers or supernatural settings, the "special powers" are more of a symbolic nature, but I also use comic-book tropes such as recurring villains, overcoming impossible odds, sometimes over-the-top action. Be warned, you'll find your share of bloody violence and crude language in this series, but it's not gory or unnecessary brutal (at least I tried), and amidst the violence and angst you'll find optimistic heroism and teenage romance ! For now, the first part is complete, and the second part, Retribution, is on its way and will have a darker tone than the former. I strongly advise that you start with the first part for story revelations.

The Headless Cross is a serial project. I wanted to tell a story in an episodic fashion, meaning each chapter will be very long and will function as an episode of the story. This one is a superpower-oriented teenage superhero story, about a British girl who is given magical abilities by an ancient artifact, and who will have to use these powers to fight the demons hiding among us. It is greatly based on Christian mythology and good old fantasy/horror motifs, with a little bit of inspiration from Japanese animation. More light-hearted than Street Justice, I still put a T rating for quirky situations and religious themes.

Oh, and if you feel like reviewing, be my guest, I'd love to know what you think of my stories (and be honest) !
