Author has written 22 stories for Horror, Sci-Fi, Historical, Play, and General.

Having already published part one of my autobiographical fantasy novel, "Starlin's Child," through sel-publishing, I am using this medium to establish myself as a short story writer. Please leave you comments. Let me know what you think of my work and share my stories with others.

I have been writing here stories in the genre of queer fiction. I would like to say a word about this categorization. The tendency is to label anything with LGBT characters as a queer story or film, which is what I do here, although my plots have nothing to do with s.o. Nobody will ever refer to Gone With the Wind as that straight book about the Civil War, yet anything with a gay character already gets a label. So, while I refer to my stories as queer horror, I really consider them as nothong more than horror stories with incidentally gay characters. (Perhaps I should write Stephen King someday and praise him for that straight book of his, Carrie.)

You can now find me on www.wattpad.com, short-fiction.co.uk, and short-story.net, as well.

Oh How Lovely by ghostwriter1341 reviews
They say that catching a man is hard, but eliminating the competition is one way of marrying a young, wealthy lord. If you can keep his attention long enough, you can steal him after you steal your opponent's breath away. Poor Ophelia Pellyn learned the hard way. Hell hath no fury like a woman in love, with money that is.
