Author has written 7 stories for Phantom of the Opera, and Mass Effect.

:UPDATE 4-19-17:

I never imagined how draining going back to school full time while working 40 hours a week would be on my creativity. After writing 1,500-word technical papers week after week, there are some days I don't even want to touch my computer, let alone find the energy and the mindset to write an emotionally-packed scene. Especially considering where I am in Parallel Lives right now. When I post, I want the chapter to reflect the same content/emotion/attention to detail that you have come to expect from me and the rest of the story--not feel rushed or half-assed or obligatory.

However, there is a silver-lining. Mass Effect Andromeda is now out. While I am only 40% through the game due to my time constraints, I can tell you that it has reignited my love of the universe and my passion for writing. A little more than a week ago I had a two-hour brainstorming session where I finally fleshed out the part of Parallel Lives that I've been stuck on. While I've always known which direction I wanted it to go, I now have a road map for the next three or four chapters. That's right; I'm writing again. Little bits here and there, chunks of the chapter on a good weekend. I can't give you a firm date, but an update for both Parallel Lives and Bonded is currently in the works.

So why this little update now? Well, there's a couple of reasons for that.

1) Because I'm trying to hold myself accountable by reminding myself that there a tons of people out there patiently waiting for me to continue (seriously, you guys rock!).

2) I enjoy writing and have missed it so much.

3) I was really afraid that once MEA came out that interest in the original trilogy--which includes all Mass Effect fanfiction I write--would wane and eventually fade and become obsolete. But the email alerts I get on my phone every couple of days with new people who are favoriting me or my stories has proven that fear was ungrounded. If nothing else, it looks like MEA has renewed a lot of people's interest in the fandom. And the amount of traffic my profile page has gotten in the past month...wow. So yeah, I wanted all of you to know I'm still alive, and still plugging away, albeit slowly, at my fics.

Finally, I love all the alerts, favorites, reviews, and private messages. They are the light at the end of the tunnel when I'm tired, stressed, and unfocused, and they encourage me to keep trucking along.


I discovered my passion for writing during the summer of 2009 after an online story I was reading abruptly ended, leaving me desperately wanting more. It was then that I decided to try my hand at fan fiction and write my own story. After much prodding, I was finally convinced to post it on the internet and gained enough favor and success to forever cement my love of writing and storytelling.

A few years later I went on to publish my first novel, a Phantom of the Opera fan fiction titled Thoughts of Summertime. In it, I took the plot that fans all knew and loved and twisted it around until it was almost a completely original story. The characters were still there, but everything else was turned upside-down. The book is available now and can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, CreateSpace, or by contacting me directly.

While writing Phantom of the Opera fan fiction was what ultimately got me started writing and made me realize that I might actually have a knack for it, it's writing for the Mass Effect fandom where I truly feel at home. I've always been a gamer, with much of my focus being on story-driven role-playing video games, and I can't think of a better example than the Mass Effect series. The story and character development throughout all three games is utterly amazing, and miles ahead of the rest of the video games out there. With so many possibilities and choices to make, from Shepard's background to romances, the untold stories in which to write about become limitless.

I have several Mass Effect fics out right now, but my pride and joy is Parallel Lives. I am truly honored and humbled by all the wonderful feedback I continue to receive on this story. It's truly been a work of love, something that has gone far beyond just a hobby. Writing this story has made me realize that this is what I want to do for a living, and I'm currently exploring ways to make writing a career.

I'd like to take a moment to tell all of my devoted readers that while it may take me time to get some updates posted, Parallel Lives will NEVER be abandoned.

I also love to network. Meeting people through this site is awesome and I love carrying on conversations about everything from the games, writing in general, to what you liked/didn't like about my fics, etc. Below is a list of ways to connect with me. I'd love to hear from you!

If anyone is interested in doing artwork for Parallel Lives, please send me a PM or contact me through any of the links listed below!
