Author has written 27 stories for Dragon Age, and Mass Effect.

The profile picture I am using depicts my Aedan Cousland and was created by MaevesChild (please visit her at Deviant Art).

I wish I had more time to write fan fiction. I started writing and publishing original fiction in 2013, though, and am currently in edits for my 12th book! That doesn't leave a lot of time for the simple and joyous exploration of other worlds. If you're interested in my original fiction, visit me at kellyjensenwrites dot com!

To those of you who have read or are reading my fan fiction, I hope you enjoy the stories! I had such a great time writing them, and I appreciate the time you take to read my sometimes mad ramblings. The grammar in my earlier ventures horrifies me, but I dare not edit them lest I lose the elements that make them special to me and the hundreds of people who have read them.

To those of you who have reviewed my stories, thank you! I do respond by PM to every review. I appreciate the time you take to leave your comments.

I never expected to have more than one story posted here, and now I have so many. I know when I click on an author page and see a list like this I feel overwhelmed, so I was inspired to put together a small guide to what I have listed here.

I write predominantly about the relationship and adventures of Aedan Cousland and Leliana (Dragon Age: Origins). These stories almost always include Alistair in the role of Aedan’s best friend and brother Warden (I make him King during the Landsmeet, and further along in the time line I find him a wife). Many of the other companions feature and make appearances. The reading order for these stories is as follows:

Have you Never?
Girl Talk
More Than Friends
‘Til Death
Scars
All of You
Tears
The Hero of Ferelden
A Second Chance (An excerpt chapter from 'Hero' that can be read alone)
Gifts
Brothers In Arms (Companion piece to Gifts – The ‘Zevran’ chapters)
Letters from the Vigil
Pins and Needles
The Birds and the Bees
Unforeseen Melodies
Interludes
A Knight in Shining Armour (Excerpt from 'Interludes')
Fishing
A Perfect Day

Every now and then something a little different comes to mind, that’s how I ended up with the one shots listed below. The first two were inspired by kink meme prompts and represent entries I was not only pleased with, but didn’t mind posting here. The last was my entry for the Dragon Age Asunder Writing Challenge.

Tall Tales
Cookies
Blessed Are the Peacekeepers

I used to play five characters over at the Warden's Vigil Role Playing Community. If you like to write and enjoy the Dragon Age worlds, you might want to stop by. I have written several stories for my characters there, sometimes about their pasts, or sometimes to develop or describe an event not covered in role play.

Stalking Frogs
A Thoughtful Young Man
Good People

I've also written Mass Effect fan fiction. Sunshine is a long "short" set about 200 years after the end of the Reaper War. Written for the Mass Effect Fall Big Bang (2013).
