Author has written 5 stories for Chronicles of Narnia, True Grit, 2010, and Firefly.

I raised my glass and drained it.

'You’re just hiding from reality,' Becker said.

'Why not?'

'You’ll never be a writer if you hide from reality.'

'What are you talking about? That’s what writers do!'

- Charles Bukowski, Ham on Rye

I read a lot of Bukowski, listen to a lot of Tom Waits, and am always impressed by beautiful words saying terrible things. I think there's a lot to be said for intricate simplicities and it's something I strive for as I venture into writing. Visuals are my specialty, subtext is key, everything has a purpose, and coincidences are hardly just that.

Many thanks for reading, faving, and story alerting. Reviews are greatly appreciated - I always try my best to respond (as I love having a dialogue with fellow readers and writers) as well as returning the favor if something catches my interests.

Holier Than Thou by Ella Greggs reviews
When their shuttle crashed, posing as monks in the local monastery to hide from the law seemed like a good idea. But Haderon is not just any planet and Winterset is not just any abbey. Now Wash and Jayne aren't sure if they're on a stairway to Heaven or a highway to Hell. Post-OIS, Pre-BDM.

Oh How Bright the Path by xcgirl08 reviews
It was fitting, really, that before things reached their conclusion I should wake up to find him sitting by the foot of my bed once again. After all, he was incorrigible. Mattie, LaBoeuf.

By Royal Decree by rthstewart reviews
A corset is a lie and a fiction and the fiction may be better than the reality. Unless, you are the Just King and you aren't going to take it anymore. Seasonal allergies; taxes; reflections on clotted cream. Golden Age.

Hands Off by AlexPrime reviews
Despite all her daydreaming and research about him, she had ignored one very vital thing. Apparently, Rorschach didn’t like to be touched. Oneshot.

The Orange Words reviews
Edmund is a synesthete--an individual who's perception associates numbers and letters with the experience of colors-- and Peter has a favorite travel game. Just some sibling fluff.
