Author has written 24 stories for Batman, Mass Effect, and Baldur's Gate.
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 (October 1, 2021): Tales from the Citadel, Chapter 22 will be delayed due to writer's block. My apologies for any inconvenience.
Tales from the Citadel—Chapter 21 Teaser
"Enjoying your shore leave, Javik?" I greeted him.
He stopped pacing and turned towards me. True to form, he didn't waste time on pleasantries. "I have been asked to take part in a… 'vid'."
Huh. I was not expecting that. "Really?"
"Yes. I am told it is a great honour and will boost morale."
"Who says it will?"
"The salarian who approached me."
Right... "Do you know anything else about this vid? Or the salarian who talked to you?"
"No. Only where the vid is being… filmed."
"All right," I sighed. "Let's see what this is all about."
Javik led me to a small warehouse on the Wards. The large, official sign on the front told me it held storage units of various sizes that could be rented out for various rates. I couldn't help but contrast that with the tiny, datapad-sized sign sporting the hastily scrawled title 'Citadel Documentary: Storage Unit 1129.'
It wound up being one of the larger storage units—easily the size of a gymnasium. There were a fair number of people running about. Mostly humans and salarians. One of the latter ran up to me.
"Ah, Commander Shepard! I didn't realize you were coming too! Perfect timing, perfect timing! You can play yourself!"
Play… myself? "Uh… excuse me. What are you talking about?" I asked.

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 http:///.
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.
