Author has written 8 stories for Essay, Action, Sci-Fi, Nature, General, and Romance.

Hello. Thank you for visiting my profile page. I like your face. Not only is it composed of extremely delicate and well-calibrated sensory tools, it has a certain aesthetic appeal to it that I appreciate.

For a plot and world-building driven narrative, see "The Biomass."

For sciencyish sounding words and even more world building, see "Letters of Dr. Mortabio." Feel free to use this as a reference book to "The Biomass." You don't have to read the whole thing to get it, but if you want to know more about how faster-than-light-travel works in this universe, maybe read just that chapter.

For a short character-driven experience, see "A Warm Summer Story."

For a truly underwhelming waste of time, see any of the other stories that I didn't have the heart to delete.

Some people feel like they need to review the stories of the people that reviewed their stories. I don't feel that need. If I review something of yours, don't feel obligated to review something of mine. If you review something of mine, don't expect me to review something of yours. Unless this is the Review Game, that's different.

I'm hoping to finish The Biomass this summer before medical school starts. I might not. If it's after August 2018 and the Biomass isn't finished, it probably won't be for a really long time.

I am grateful for your existence.

The Biomass reviews
There is a pathogen spreading across the galaxy. It defies the previously established laws of biology, infecting members of all species. Plant, animal, bacteria, species on another planet, doesn't matter. Can the intelligent creatures of the galaxy find a cure, or at least quarantine it?

The Letters of Dr Mortabio reviews
This is a spin-off of my other story, "The Biomass." Within, Dr. Mortabio discusses the biology of the plague spreading across the galaxy as he learns of it. He also discusses some of the technology that exists in his universe. (Leftover world-building notes that I wanted to share but that are too technical and boring for the main story.)

A Warm Summer Story reviews
Do you ever notice that the better you know someone, the more beautiful they look to you? The face doesn't even need to change, you just have to love the person beneath the skin. I met her at summer camp, where we both worked as councilors. Oneshot.

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 reviews
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.
