Author has written 9 stories for Naruto.

Not much to say other than I enjoy writing fanfiction whenever time allows me.

The Hyuga clan fascinates me so majority of my stories will probably focus on Hinata, Neji and Hanabi but other characters will play their parts too.

Update 10/31/2012: Life Lessons from a Hyuga Perspective

LLFAHP has reached 10,000 hits! Thank you all for your support. If there are any artists out there inspired by this series I would love to see your work. Just let me know where you post it. Also, if you want to post my stories anywhere other than FF, please just ask first. I like to keep track of my work as best I can. Thanks again!

Update 9/23/2012: Between Generations


I'm starting a new story that I'm very excited about. Like LLFAHP, each chapter is meant to stand alone but there will be occasion when events and characters overlap. Brace yourselves for predictable and not so predictable pairings and events. I try to keep everyone in character as I see them but I no longer claim to stay within the Naruto-verse timeline. I don’t watch the anime enough to even make the effort. So purists please don’t take offense. This story arc was inspired in part by the new The XX album, Coexist. Enjoy!

Update 11/1/2011: Zombie Talks

I'm a day late submitting my Halloween story but it's up! The story was loosely inspired by the song 'Zombie' by The Cranberries. Makes me think of the rebel in Hizashi. Enjoy!

Update 10/21/2011: Inspirations

Music is where I get most of inspiration for my stories/characters and I've come across a great compilation of music from E.S. Posthumus' album titled 'Unearthed' that is helping me to capture the essence of my characters. I thought I'd share just in case people care to know but mainly as a reference for myself as I develop the characters. So when I want to write a story that focuses on a particular character, I play their "theme song" and get inspired. Here they are:

Hizashi: 'Ebla' This song has enough edge to capture the defiant, angry side of Hizashi but the loyalty and determination as well.

Neji: 'Nara' A quiet, steady focus but with a strong emotional undercurrent.

Hanabi: 'Antissa' This song reminds of a rebellious, playful princess. I think it captures Hanabi's spirit perfectly!

Hiashi: 'Isfahan' A very stately, imposing song that captures Hiashi's strength as a leader but his sensitivity and burdens that he carries as well.

Hinata: 'Estemos' This song is beautiful and ethereal capturing the mystery and hope surrounding Hinata. I can't stop playing this song.

I foresee the themes changing as the characters mature but for now I'm enjoying the ideas these songs inspire! Your thoughts and feedback are welcome!

On another note, I hope to post a story in honor of Halloween. We'll see how the weekend goes! :)

Update 9/30/2011:

I will be submitting the last chapter to LLFAHP this weekend! Thank you for being so patient with me. If the series inspires you, please submit a review. And if you're willing to submit a review, maybe you'd be willing to share with me which stories and/or characters you liked the best. I'm always looking for different ways to generate story ideas so feedback is very helpful. :)

Thanks for reading and enjoy!
