NEWS: 'm back, but I can't be nearly as active here as I hoped as I'm still looking for a job and an agent. (The nibble didn't pan out). So... Announcements!
One World returns to a regular release schedule starting May 6th!
Sword and Shield returns to a regular release schedule starting May 13th! With the start of Volume #2: A Family Visit.

The Fourth Week of each month is reserved exclusively for my original fiction... so no releases then. Thank you.
NEWS: I have unified much of my online presence and created a 'nexus' site of sorts. If you want to know what I do beyond fanfiction, check out:
Who am I? Well I'm a 27 year old white male stuck in a rather boring part of the United States. I've recently completed the Writing Popular Fiction program at Seton Hill University with an MFA in Creative Writing. I've been published in EON Magazine and hope to sell my original series: A Fox's Tale. I have more projects than time.
To me fanfiction is basically a writing exercise, I don't really take it that seriously and no one who reads my fanfiction really should... it is fanfiction, nothing more nor less. I use it as an exercise to hone and practice my craft during dry spells, I have not offered my real name as some publishers are extremely adverse to their authors releasing fanfiction and you should be aware that if I am sold I will be more than willing to take down my account here if they request it.
Thank you for your time, and clear skies.

Inspired in part by Forester's Horatio Hornblower novels, several historical wars, and the technological revolution in naval warfare in the late 19th Century.
Ambrose Chronicles Novels - The novels themselves are designed to be very similar in construction to the Horatio Hornblower stories, some of the short stories may be inserted as chapters in the novels.
Lord Leveson's War - *In Drafting* - 2073.01.17 AY Midshipman Miles Ambrose is assigned to the Peregrine-class Gunboat UES Swift Fox a small ship with a crew of 20 (3 officers, 2 midshipmen, 15 enlisted).

A sixteen year old apprentice officer, Miles is thrown into the center of the brewing war and forms an impromptu partnership with his fellow Midshipman Astra Tanaka. Can he survive his first cruise on a boat older than he is? Rated T for violence, language, close quarters living, and graphic depictions of space combat.
Ambrose Chronicles Short Stories - Independent and stand alone short stories set in the Miles Ambrose universe and meant for publication in magazines, at least that's the plan.
An Average Engagement - *COMPLETE - Awaiting Publication* - 2074 AY, the UES Swift Fox is engaged by the IRS Dubleix while on routine patrol. The small skirmish provides an insight into the very nature of ship to ship combat in space. Things are not as most people believe they would appear. 5,500 words.

John Hawthorne Novel Series - An adult Urban Fantasy series, focusing on John Hawthorne, an FBI agent turned occult investigator and detective. Features a wide range of different stories of the detective sort. In many ways, it's sort of like a CSI series for a magical world living all around us. Plus, the first book asks the question... if a Vampire hunter kills a Vampire, is it murder?
The Dhampir Daughter: A John Hawthorne Novel – *In Planning* - The Omaha Nebraska FBI office was one of the dullest posts that John Hawthorne could imagine, that is until he’s called to a murder scene in a hotel room, where the coroner said the man had been dead for years. Now he finds himself standing between the man’s daughter and his murderer, a vampire hunter. Rated T for violence, language, and sexual themes.
A Fox's Tale - A YA/Fantasy series focusing on the stories of Ember Wülf and her companions Jonathan Smith and Drassus the Kobolt. Designed for the Young Adult and Teen Market, the stories are framed within an older, adult Ember telling a chronicler her history. The setting uses elements of the spiritkin and elemental mythos common to many fantasy stories, but also makes truly magical people like Jonathan and Ember rarities in the world. These magical talents are prized for their abilities and the constant search by powerful beings to find, enslave, or recruit them drives most of the plot.

EVE Online Stories
Tales from Akash Misra and Ai-Wei Song - My two favorite characters for EVE Online, Akash Misra the Intaki power engineer turned capsuleer and his partner in crime, war, and trading Ai-Wei Song a Jin-Mei propulsion engineer turned capsuleer.

Salma Idama sees an immense opportunity for profit when two major powers in null-sec go to war and organizes an immense convoy to deliver goods to the combatants.

DC Comics affiliated Fanfiction Projects in Progress:
Titans Reimagined – An alternate universe and alternate character interpretation story with a more ‘pseudo-realistic’ approach to the New Teen Titans featuring a more Jonathan Nolan style world for the team. Join Dick Grayson, Koriand’r, Victor Stone, Garfield Logan, and Rachel Roth as they pull together to battle the forces of Slade Wilson, Mad Mod, the Brotherhood, and Trigon the Terrible himself. Set in New York City.
Titans Reimagined #1: Starfall - *In Progress - Monthly Releases* - Book #1 in the Titans Reimagined Series. Dick Grayson (Robin) leaves Batman at 16 for New York City. There he finds a new home, a team, and friends in three metahuman teens. Little does he know that an alien will soon crash into his life. Uses a 'pseudo-realistic' approach to the DC Universe like Nolan's Batman. Rated T for violence, language, and one nude tamaranian.
The Raven – Told from the perspective of Rachel Roth, the daughter of Trigon the Terrible, as she comes to grips with the changes to the world she once knew. As the daughter of an evil that transcends the multiverse she remembers what has changed and grieves for the world she knew, as Trigon’s minions work to force her to reopen the portal to the mortal world.
The Raven: Volume #1 *In Progress - Monthly Releases* - Volume one of The Raven. For a woman that's been reborn and the daughter of a dimensional conqueror, what happens when the world resets? Rachel Roth wakes in on in an alley in Central City to a world changed from her own, and finds herself alone facing minions and agents of her father. She finds one friend in this strange new world: Wally West. BBxRae referenced. Rated T for violence and language.
Earth-16 Go! – *In Progress - Monthly Releases* - A Young Justice – Teen Titans crossover. Mere weeks after the New Year the Team is sent to investigate an alien landing in Jump City and in the process pick up four new recruits. Over the next five years, they struggle against a plethora of new threats while the Light schemes to bring about their downfall.

Welcome Jade “Cheshire” Nguyen to the place she should have been from the start… The Outlaws! Rated T for adult subject matter, violence, language and adult subject matters.
Unity Universe - Stories told from a 'Unified' DC Multiverse which basically acts as a reboot of the New 52 and is designed to incorporate stories from multiple parts of the separate 52 Universes into a single consistent whole. It is safe to assume nearly all storylines are true at some level and that the events of DC's publishing history have been heavily compressed. Essentially one year of comics roughly translates to a month in the character's lives (assumes a reboot in 2020 as the start of the universe). The Raven series will ultimately create this universe with one of it's volumes actually being in the universe...
Titans Broken - *COMPLETE* - Batman, faced with a Starfire working alongside Red Hood and Arsenal and a Nightwing who he sees as a shadow of his first Robin, brings both of them in for a psychological evaluation.

Pairings: Garfield Logan/Rachel Roth, Tim Drake/Stephanie Brown, Dick Grayson/Koriand'r, Cassie Sandsmark/Conner Kent.

Sword and Shield - The continuation of the Full Metal Panic storyline from the final light novel. The stories tend toward a more realistic and gritty depiction of the FMP universe by combining elements from novels that the original author felt inspired by such as Tom Clancy's geopolitical thrillers.
