Author has written 9 stories for Song of the Lioness.

What can I say, I just love to read, and there's so much here I'll never be with out a fresh story...so really, I'm just using you all for the fiction. Don't hold it against me, it's a medical condition.

I'll read just about anything, hence the pen-name. The odder the situation or the pairing, the more I like it, and I will admit a bit of weakness for angst. Stories with minor characters are great. It's the twisted, rabid plot bunnies that follow me...I do love Tamora Pierce's Tortall, though.

"Three's a crowd" is gong to be a chaptered Kel/Dom/Lerant. You can wait and see what pairings might be.

"In the heat of battle" was basically me trying to decide, once and for all, if Kel and Dom could be together. The answer yes, but not always. There may be an epilogue, but it's basically done.

Lerant of Eldorne is my weakness and my obsession. "By Eldorne, I think that's it!" is my baby. That said, all requests/suggstions considered.

The one shots tend to be the odder ideas surfacing; they make me happy, but the quality is variable, I'm afraid.

I am a sporadic writer and updater; real life gets in the way.

All the authors and stories in my favourites are well worth investigating; well, I would say that, but it's true. Read them and be inspired.
