Author has written 88 stories for Harry Potter, X-Men: The Movie, Sailor Moon, Record of Lodoss War, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, StarTrek: Deep Space Nine, Naruto, and Game of Thrones.

Hello and welcome. I write stories. It's lots of fun.

I love snippets, and I tend to lean toward brief glimpses into exhilarating but quiet, sometimes ugly, examples of human nature. Characters. It's all about the characters.

I check for reviews at unhealthy intervals. Please help me stop.

Bonus points if you can pick out which pieces I write while drunk. Heads-up, it will be most of them. Thanks for reading, and please enjoy.


Credit for my "Interlocking" cover photo goes to foleypdx. Many thanks for the permission to use it. I am in love with her other Krem/Harding pieces. Go see her other awesome stuff here.
