Author has written 4 stories for Dragon Age.

I come from a small East-European country, traditionally famous for bad publicity when it comes to politics and wild entertainment when it comes to nightlife.

As far as my professional career is concerned, I work for a well-known, worldwide-spread and reasonably influential international organization, whose primary goal is to bring peace and prosperity to the world. No joke. My job allows me to earn more than a decent living, get involved in important events, and go to frequent business trips to exotic places.

In my free time, however, I’m a total geek and damn proud of being one. I read a lot of genre fiction (but not as much as I used to when I was younger, alas), play games, watch anime, collect graphic novels, and engage in old-fashioned live-action RPG (you know, with a DM and dice). I go on uncontrolled fangirling sprees over everything concerning Neil Gaiman, and have a soft spot for 1970s shoujo manga. I’m also a veteran member of the local Goth scene and a vice-president of a society for promotion of Japanese pop-culture.

And, um, a very special passion of mine is French literature. Especially the 18th century prose. Yes, I am aware of how dorky that sounds.

Now, I am not a newbie in the world of writing – I used to work as a journalist for years, and I even published some original fiction in my native language – but the Dragon Age fandom made me cross over to the dark side and make my first attempts at fanfiction.

When I write, I like to explore the characters’ psychology and their various defense mechanisms, focusing on petty human emotions in circumstances of epic events. I enjoy giving new interpretations to the well-known events from the game (few things are as delicious as unexpected twists), and, above all else, I love toying around with the theory of drama and the laws of storytelling. And I’m not sure if I’d be able to write a happy story even if my life depended on it.

My fics were originally posted on my LJ account, but a compatriot and friend of mine, who has already made quite a name for herself in another Bioware fandom (hello there, witchwolf!), encouraged me to join the FF.net in order to share my stories with a wider audience.

Last but not the least – given that I’m not a native speaker, a special credit should go to my beta ladies, bellaknoti (for Dragon Age: Origins) and tersa (for Dragon Age 2), who turned my Tarzan English into proper Queen’s.

Of Heroes and Fools reviews
A rather dark and slightly twisted take on the romance between M!Cousland and Zevran. Secrets, lies, manipulation, unhealthy relationships and unrequited feelings abound.
