Author has written 14 stories for Song of the Lioness, Flatland, Circle of Magic, Immortals, Tamora Pierce, Katherine Kurtz, and Harry Potter.

It might be apparent from what I write and how I write it that I'm a student of the literature persuasion. That's mostly true, although I have a few personal variations on it. I like fantasy, but I don't tend to write fanfic for the authors I'm most passionate about.

I try to keep my fics canonical, at least as far as the letter of the law is concerned. It probably helps that my one large-scale story ("Condemned to Repeat") is set in the vaguely near-future Tortall, and my current concern is Carthak ("Sub Malis Principibus," "Inheritance," "Empire's Heir") where there is both less canon and canonically less moral restraint.

I am more embarrassed than pleased by my oldest stories; I guess I leave them up to maintain a façade of frank disclosure and humility. On the other hand, they provide a view of where my fanfic-writing has come from: how my style has changed (and, I hope, improved), how my concerns have matured (or not), and what themes I have always liked to explore.

Updates will continue to be sporadic: I would like to finish "Empire's Heir," and I would love to write a sequel to "Condemned to Repeat." Unfortunately, I have less time to write fanfic, and I have realized that my Kaddar stories are intensely solipsistic in their concerns. I am always very interested to know what you think of my stories, however, and I will do my best to continue and even finish what I have started
