Author has written 7 stories for Essay, Action, Sci-Fi, Nature, and General.

Hi! I'm a recent college grad who likes writing. I also like biology. Sometimes I like to talk about organs, because organs are cool, but then I notice my conversation partner blanch a little and stop talking and sort of space out. Some people are really grossed out by biology, which is not something I understand. Recently I've tried to respect that and halfway into explaining what the bacteria in the colon do for us, I'll ask if I'm grossing people out.

So yeah, if you're one of those people, be careful about reading The Biomass.

Speaking of The Biomass, I'm gonna try doing that again. I put it on hold for about three years or so. The old version has a lot of plot holes and I think I can write better than I could three years ago. I also want to pay more attention to how dumbfoundingly big space-time is. Also, instead of including boring nerdy stuff in the main story, I'm writing a spin-off called Letters from Dr. Mortabio.

I forget what my other stories are about. Read them maybe?

Fun fact about me: I can see the dome of a capital building from my room's window. But which capital building?

The Biomass reviews
A mysterious infectious agent spread across the galaxy. It is so contagious and so unnatural that even the galaxy's most intelligent species cannot contain the pathogen. This story is dominated by the overwhelming size of space an the unfathomable length of time. This is a revamped version of a story I stopped.

The Letters of Dr Mortabio
This is a spin-off of my other story, "The Biomass." Within, Dr. Mortabio discusses scientific discoveries and the biology of the plague spreading across the galaxy. Basically it's me explaining the fudged science behind my world-building. You might learn something or maybe just geek out if you like the "science" part of science-fiction.

The Biomass (old) reviews
(I'm trying to rewrite this) What if a zombie plague could infect animals other than humans, as well as plants and bacteria? What if this contagion could infect every kind of living being? The galaxy's sentient species must fight against this terror in order to survive. In the form of primary source documents, this is the war against the Biomass.

A Conception of Purgatory
I imagine Purgatory would be kind of like a fast food restaurant... mediocre and devoid of action. This story is also mediocre and devoid of action, but I enjoyed writing it.

The Woodland Sage
Just another humanity versus nature poem, but with an interesting rhyme scheme.

A Vigilante's Sacrifice reviews
The hero is caught in the villain's trap, and is forced to choose who lives and who dies. The scene is common in books and in movies, but here it ends differently. The villain put the hero between a rock and hard place, but did not accurately anticipate the hero's dilemma.

Power of Language reviews
When good authors include details, they mean it. If there is a dog, that dog is important to the plot or meaning. Good authors realize that language is a force to be reckoned with.
