Author has written 2 stories for One Tree Hill.

Most of my stories center on strong female protagonists. Which is okay since the market is flooded with male heroes.

I try to tap into an underserved niche of people who want to see something a little bit different.

Another common feature of my stories is they are platonic, I might throw a little mild innuendo into the mix just for humor, but I do not write any sexual scenes. In fact, I rarely even have romance as a centerpiece. I do, however, incorporate strong friendships into everything I write. Life can be lonely, why not let our fictional friends have some company?

In addition, my stories do have some language, but never anything that would make them R-rated.

Every story needs conflict. Conflict may be something we all avoid in our own lives, but it is way fun to watch in the lives of other people. Your tragedy is my comedy. Anyway, there are a lot of ways to create conflict. Making characters choose illogical paths because they are emotionally charged (Angst) is one way. Another way is tragedy like sickness, coma, or accidents (soap opera staples). And the really skilled writers can make ordinary life conflicts seem interesting.

These stories are a form of angst because they primarilly deal with the emotion of relationships. I think the common name for this style of writing is Fluff. My preferred method of conflict creation, however, is Action. Action/Fluff (which by-the-way is neither common nor popular) throws characters with strong (or potentially strong) emotional attachments into situations of mortal peril in which they must team up and sacrifice to survive.

I genuinely appreciate any feedback and make it a point to read the works of authors who offer feedback. I especially appreciate specific feedback, as it helps improve my writing.
