Author has written 22 stories for Mass Effect, and Others.

Bioware had made some of my favorite RPGs of all time as well as being my introduction to them. Mass Effect was my latest obsession and the handling of the final chapter and its very devisive endings were tragic, to put it mildly. This game universe had a lot of potential and its characters, the legions of custom ManSheps and Femsheps and the devoted fans that created and guided them deserved far better than they received. Hopefully the works I post here, that started out as a celebration of the games, serve as a fitting tribute to what could have been...

Featuring:

- Mass Effect: Interface Continuum (an alternate Mass Effect 3 storyline)

Stories are, in order: Personal Interests, Day of Reckoning, Mindfields, Operation Demeter, Countermeasures and Gideon. All with a 100% Crucible/Catalyst-free guarantee! The"official" theme song: Atlas by Two Steps from Hell (the choirless version, on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ye4QJ3u53H4).

- Memories of Bysorrn

Even before joining the military and becoming the heroic first human Spectre, young Cadrina Ellen Shepard showed signs of the woman she would one day become. This series of stories follows her and her family on their posting to a turian-controlled planet about one year before humanity is granted an embassy on the Citadel.

- 10,000 Ways to Die: The Series

Everything you love about the Spike TV show 1000 Ways to Die, only set in the Mass Effect universe!

- Assorted short stories and poems, including Tiberas, First Contact and the Musical Interludes
