Author has written 16 stories for Halo, StarCraft, and Mass Effect.

4/26/18: It's been a long time. It's been a long, long time. It's been four years since I last published. I've done a lot in that absence. I've been in and out of school, I've been in and out of jobs, and I've been looking for a direction.

I'm back. Things have changed. For the first time in a long time, I've found a road to follow. And I've found my muse. We've been talking so much, and for the first time in years, I can sit down and write.

I've got old stories to finish, and new stories to tell. Very soon, I promise.
