Author has written 20 stories for Harry Potter, A song of Ice and Fire, New Girl, Firefly, Star Wars, and Game of Thrones.

First off, thanks for taking the time to read my stories. I hope you like them. Now a bit about me. I am from Canada and I live in Seoul, South Korea where I teach English conversation at a small college. I am married and I have two daughters. And yes, I'm a man, in my mid-40s, since someone asked me that once. I also write English textbooks in my spare time. Despite my job, my spelling and grammar do tend to slip at times, which is quite embarrassing and also why the publishing companies I work for have editors. On a more personal note, I like reading history, military history, fantasy and sci-fi, enjoy all genres of movies except horror, and I love baseball, football (both types) and hockey (just ice). I truly hope you like my stories, and comments are always welcome, the good and the bad. Thanks much.

I am on Twitter if you want to follow me and my writing adventures and other things on my life in Korea. https://twitter.com/Stephenpoirier1
