Sometimes I have the strangest urge to run around naked. But whenever it happens, I just drink some Windex. That usually keeps me from streaking.
Psychology graduate, Police/Fire/EMS dispatcher, and a writer. I have a penchant for crazy folks and forensics, and a taste for the absurd.
My older pieces are mostly Tolkien-based works of varying quality. The Fifth Age is blessedly dead - a good thing (which the story never was). The best bits of it are the chapters focusing on Julie and Sean. Someday if I get motivated enough, I may go back and write a story focusing entirely on them. Maybe. Maybe not. Shards of Stone used to be When My Life Begins Anew. While not technically dead, updates are painfully slow coming, and will continue to be so until I get though my Repo! The Genetic Opera kick. I do have a stack of quasi-intertwined Silmarillion based stories floating around somewhere on my hard drive that I'd like to get posted eventually. They deal heavily with revisionist Tolkien history, obscure characters, and attempts to explain why some characters slipped quietly out of the final drafts of The Silmarillion, while others remained. Interesting stuff. Well, maybe just interesting to me. _
The V for Vendetta shorts are probably my best writing on here. There's one - maybe two - more stories that fit into that plot arc that I have yet to get on paper.
Lemarchand's Legacy has a lot of plot elements that I'm particularly happy with, although some of the subtleties failed to come through in the final execution. I'm pondering a followup, which deals more extensively with questions of family ties, karma, and attempts to find your way back home when you don't really know where home is.
Current project is Jaded - a Repo! The Genetic Opera story. A twisted coming of age tale, rooted around a life of of crime, drug abuse, and loose women. Ultmately, though, it's about family - those that we have, and those that we make. It's a story about failures, missed opportunities and regret, love, death, and - ultimately - redemption. All with a hint of the absurd, just to keep things interesting.
Thoughts, input, and constructive criticism are always welcome.
