Author has written 5 stories for Mass Effect, and Dragon Age.

I'm 23, read way too much, play way too many video games, and spend way too much time online...and then wonder why I don't get enough sleep and have a sink full of dishes. I'm hoping I never grow up.

June 18th, 2010: What Once Was Lost is on an indefinite hiatus. The flash drive that held all my notes for that story got wiped, and I haven't felt like redoing all that work. Maybe I'll come back to it - maybe not.
