Author has written 19 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.
Update (January 16, 2015): After over a year of planning and preparation, I am pleased to announce The Hero Rises--my take on Mass Effect 3 and its DLCs--has started posting. 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 The Hero Rises.
200 reviews: I'll post an original one-shot set in the Heroverse.
300 reviews: to be revealed
400 reviews: to be revealed
500 reviews: to be revealed
Teaser: The Hero Rises, Chapter 13
"And who authorized you to hold my race hostage?" Wrex retorted, rising to his feet. Two salarians raised their omni-tools at him. He glared at them contemptuously before using his biotics to send them flying into the wall. Pulling his shotgun out, her took a step forward...
...then stopped when he saw two laser sights trained on him--one firmly centred on his head, the other dancing between his head and his throat. I followed the laser beams back to two more salarians. Snipers, obviously. Not wanting to wait until the shuttle landed, I jumped out of the shuttle. Thankfully, I only had to drop a metre or so. I led the squad to join Wrex, just as three more salarians arrived. "Halt!" one of them snapped, as they raised their guns and omni-tools.
The squad instinctively raised their own weapons. We stared at each other, waiting for someone to make the first move. Or make a mistake. Yeah, that would be bad. Someone had to break the tension. Preferably in a way that didn't involve bullets flying through the air.
"Don't hit my face."
Mass Effect Timeline

Have Yourself a Hero's Little Christmas--takes place sometime between The Prankster's Hero and Accidental Hero of the Galaxy. From Shepard's POV.
Accidental Hero of the Galaxy--a novelization of Mass Effect 1 from Shepard's POV.
Run, Hero, Run--a oneshot occuring at some point during Accidental Hero of the Galaxy from Shepard's POV.
Something from the Citadel--what really happened before Garrus went to Omega and became Archangel. Takes place between Accidental Hero of the Galaxy and The Hero We Deserve. From Garrus's POV.
The Hero We Deserve--a novelization of Mass Effect 2 from Shepard's POV. Includes the ME2 DLC Overlord.

Archangels of Light and Darkness--another adventure starring Garrus (from his POV), Shepard and a couple lucky (or unlucky) souls. Takes place during The Hero We Deserve.

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.
Thanks for reading. I hope there's something here to help you pass the time.
