Author has written 9 stories for DC Superheroes, Batman, Marvel, X-Men, and Vertigo.

I've been writing fanfiction for a number of years, mostly comic-based. Below are a few of what I consider my better efforts. Several of these stories have also appeared on shared universe fanfic projects such as Marvel 2000. Thank you for reading. All comments, reviews, and e-mails are greatly appreciated.
