Author has written 23 stories for Batman, and Mass Effect.
I'm a self-confessed nerd/geek who balances those pleasures with the demands of my inner muse and the joys, trials and tribulations of real life. Mostly by faking it, with the occasional bit of serendipity.
Author's Update (September 10, 2018):
I'm afraid there won't be any chapter in October. The next chapter of The Hero Rises will therefore be released in November.
Teaser: The Hero Rises, Chapter 54:
It would have been a magnificent sight, I'm sure. Soldiers of all ages, genders, ranks and races marching out, sporting resolute faces and a wide array of stunning weaponry. Dozens of vehicles rolling out, the dull growl of their engines filling the air. All you needed was some sunny weather, a band or two and a crowd of excited civilians and you'd have a bonafide parade on your hands.
Of course, the situation was anything but celebratory. The races of the galaxy had come together to fight through the streets of London, block by war-torn block. There would be no civilian crowds to cheer us on. No parade or celebration. All we could expect was a lot of dead bodies and a lot of mindless hostiles.
We passed the former as we made our way down the streets. Some had been lying there for days, weeks, maybe more. Others were still fresh, the first victims of this desperate assault. All those bodies, jut lying there out in the open. A silent testament of the staggering toll this war had taken. A grim reminder that any one of us could be next.
Perhaps the sight should have made us pause. Gave us reason to be afraid.
But we all knew what was at stake. Yes, the mission could come at a terrible cost. Maybe even the cost of our lives. But we would do what we must to get the job done. We would stay the course. We would fight.
The latest novelization underway is The Hero Rises--my take on Mass Effect 3 and its DLCs. I can't promise any radical departures from canon or a brand new ending that will magically fix all the flaws, sins and crimes--real or otherwise--of ME3 and, by extension, the Mass Effect trilogy. However, I can promise Shepard doing his darndest to save the galaxy (again) despite the Reapers, Cerberus, the Council, ancient prejudices and his own doubts and guilty conscience.
I can also promise a little, shall we say, motivation. For every 100 reviews The Hero Rises receives, you will receive a reward. Consider it my way of thanking people for not only reading my chapters, but taking the time to write back.
100 reviews: UNLOCKED! See below for a teaser of the next chapter of Aria's Lament.
200 reviews: UNLOCKED! The Hero Who Came In From The Cold, posted in celebration of N7 Day 2015.
300 reviews: UNLOCKED! Heroes of Future Past, Chapter 1.
400 reviews: UNLOCKED! The Naïve and Sentimental Hero, an original one-shot set in the Heroverse.
500 reviews: UNLOCKED! Playing Cards with Judas, an original one-shot set in the Heroverse. To be released as soon as possible.

When I first started out, I wrote a few stories taking place in the Cat-Tales universe, an alternate take on the DC universe by the brilliant Chris Dee. In case anyone's curious, she's also responsible for the cover pictures that grace some of my fanfics. For more of her work, I encourge you to check out .
One of Those Days--a oneshot showing how the Riddler just can't get a break. Takes place at any point in Cat-Tales.
WoZ--a oneshot involving a group of individuals who occupy a valuable and oft-overlooked niche in Gotham's underworld. Takes place sometime between Cat-Tales#53 and Cat-Tales #60.
Don't Fear the Z--a spinoff to Cat-Tales #60: Don't Fear the Joker.
