Author has written 43 stories for Dragon Ball Z, X-Men: The Movie, Dragon Age, and Hunger Games.

It is common for a character in a novel to take it upon himself to tell the story. When a character can intervene in this way, we the readers are never dealing with bare facts, but only with stories about facts, subject to the prism of a subject - of a particular intelligence, sensibility and memory - and therefore eminently problematic. Everything contained within the story stems from an eyewitness account. True, the course of the account is likely peculiarly well informed and probably sincere, but he is none the less intimately involved in the affair, and therefore cannot claim to determine the truth of the reported events.

Waiting For Hawke reviews
Anders comes to Skyhold in search of Hawke, and the Inquisitor offers to keep him safely hidden until Hawke returns from business elsewhere. But the cell the former Saarebas gives him reminds Anders too much of his time in the Circle's prison, even if the cell door at Skyhold is never locked. Cole senses his fear and loneliness and tries to help.

Resistance reviews
Now, standing with the other Tributes arrayed in a circle around him, the inhibitor collar was heavy around Erik's neck. There were bombs under his feet, Erik knew though he could not currently sense them. He didn't have much time. The telepath was on his left. Charles Xavier, who kill with a thought, was widely regarded to be the inevitable Victor. Erik spoke to him.

Hell on Wheels reviews
The one where Erik is a belligerent southern Jewish moonshine-runner with a fast truck and scarred knuckles from barroom brawling and Charles is a hippie and a college drop out who is drifting across the country looking for other Mutants. They met when Charles's car breaks down on a back road. This story owes quite a lot to Brantley Gilbert's album by the same title.

The Only Road reviews
Azazel's first stop after Cuba is for booze, so Erik and Janos take the opportunity to discuss their pasts and the future. "My name's Janos." "Magneto," Erik said, testing it out. It wasn't the first time he'd tried on a new name for size, but there was no denying that this one was an awkward fit. He supposed he would grow into it. Janos laughed. "Man, for real?"

Run reviews
The red boy was frowning in a way that seemed very cold to Raven, and that scared her. The surprise of finding she was not alone in the Xavier mansion scared her too, and she felt her disguise slipping away, the scales turning like a cascade of water, leaving her grown tinier and blue and she saw his eyes widen, saw recognition in them, but by then she had turned and was running...

Career Counseling
It is hard to believe that the darkness had hidden the woman, that it could have been in any way her ally; white furs and a dazzling white smile with all the sincerity of cubic zirconia and a name that flirted maddeningly - like so much else over the course of the last few years - just outside the reach of Moira's consciousness.

Restless reviews
Fic #2 for the 30 days of drabbles challenge. "When Angel finally got away it had been late, and she had been exhausted – being in the same space with Shaw was like sitting across from an armed bomb – but sleep wasn't an option. She was pacing the halls, feeling as restless as a caged animal, when she rounded a corner and all but collided with Janos."

Beginning reviews
Fic #1 of the "30 Days of Writing Drabble Challenge." It was a bad place Angel had come to, and the hell of it was that there was no out. She couldn't pack up her things and hop a bus for the next big bright city, like she had so many times in the past when things just got too heavy. There was no starting over, no new beginning. She was stuck.
