Herein lies the tomb of AllHailMario

2008-whenever his last fanfic was

His work could best be described as "earnest" or perhaps "why did they give a boy his age coffee?"

Memento mori

Carpe diem

Insert Latin phrase of choice here

Instead, welcome to the glowing, verdant world of Second Wolf, the fanfic-writing side of fantasy author James Wolven (the "first wolf," if you will). My writing path really first began here on this site over a decade ago, when I was thirteen and would bash my face into the keyboard, stare at the resulting text through smarting, bleary eyes, and say to myself, "Yes, this is excellent prose and development." As a rabid Nintendo fan, AllHailMario was my alias. His epitaph lies up above, fallen but never forgotten.

If you want a good laugh, you can read my stories from prior to June 6th, 2018. Some people still appear to enjoy them, though they are but awkward revenants of my literary past. None of the unfinished ones will ever be finished, but hey, it's entertaining seeing where I've come from.

About me: I am a published author with one novella and one full-length novel available on Kindle, The Whisper of the Coals and Mourn respectively. As a nerd with an overactive imagination, fantasy is often my realm of choice. I am also a professional voice actor, with the bulk of my work being indie video games, audiobooks and online animation. Creating fascinating, believable new worlds and characters is my lifeblood, and I hope you will come along with me for the ride.

Wolven trivia time
