Author has written 14 stories for Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and Rizzoli & Isles.
So from what I can tell, there's not really one set standard by which these profiles are published, so I guess I'll make up my own as I go along my merry way. You all know me as Kalen, and since I've been publishing on here for long enough it's about time I let you all know a little about myself.
A few of my favorite quotations:
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”- Eleanor Roosevelt
"Courage is being scared to death - but saddling up anyway." - John Wayne
"Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try." - Master Yoda
Age: Don't you know it's not polite to ask a lady that question?
Hobbies: Gaming, of course, would be my first hobby. I was 7 when I picked up my first controller, but I truly blame my younger brother for introducing me to my first RPG (Final Fantasy Tactics). From that point forward, I was hopelessly hooked. I spent several years in online RP (Chat and Board), though I've gotten away from that over the past several years. I also love to go to the movies, go out with my friends, and play with my dogs.
Favorite Video Games: Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2; Mass Effect (1 & 2, though damn you Microsoft from keeping us loyal PS3 fans from ever knowing sweet Liara as a young chillun'); Uncharted Series; some of the older school Final Fantasy series; Knights of the Old Republic; Metal Gear Solid series, Red Dead Redemption ... I could probably go on, though I shouldn't need to. Did I mention I was a gamer?
Favorite TV Shows: My most recent addiction would be Game of Thrones, though I love Firefly and the old school Xena. I also am a hopeless House fan.
Favorite Book: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Last Book Read: The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
Favorite Pairings to write: Hawke/Isabela is extremely fun to write, also Tabris/Leliana and Shepard/Liara (Miranda is growing on me, though).
About my stories:
As-of-yet untitled Dragon Age: Origins Fic: All I will say about this is that it will be a sequel to The Last Dance, and that the main characters in this story will be Leliana, Shianni, and Morrigan. Perhaps with a bit of Zevran thrown in for good measure. This one is on the shelves for a bit (partly due to writer's block, and partly because of the last item on this list).
Second Chances: Shepard and Liara have been screaming at me for some time, and while I've toyed with the concept of writing this story for awhile, Miranda and Liara finally cornered me and told me in no uncertain terms exactly what would happen if I didn't write this tale. So I've been tapping furiously at the computer trying to make them happy. Seriously, have you ever faced an Asari commando unit before? It's not fun.
As-of-yet untitled Rizzoli & Isles Fic:Because seriously, who can not write about these sexy women?
So that's it, I suppose. Me in a nutshell. One last thing before I go -- I truly appreciate all of my fans and the lurkers who have reviewed, faved, or followed my stories thus far. I hope that you will continue to find joy in the things that I write.
And to my better half, who has had to put up with the endless hours of gameplay (research, I tell you) and the steady tapping of fingers on keyboard in the middle of the night: These, as always, are for you.
