Author has written 3 stories for Mass Effect.

Hey y'all.

My name is Forrest, and I've been working on the Chaos Effect stories for 3.5 years. In hindsight, that's a really long time, but I'm not done yet.

CE has taken pretty much all of my writing attention. I used to write a fair bit of poetry, but have slacked in recent years.

I ride dirt bikes, pedal bikes, and snowmobiles in any free time.

Current projects (Updated 9 Oct 2014:

Chaos Effect: First Contact. As the name sort of suggests, it's the first part of Mass Effect universe 'fan-fiction'. Apart from the galaxy, races, and a bit of technology, it's all original story and characters. Story finished.

Chaos Effect: Dawning. Sort of a transition between CE:FC and CE2:R, CE:D is a better look at the backstories of various original characters. Set before and after CE:FC, it's finished for the time being. No plans to add more in the foreseeable future.

Chaos Effect 2: Revivification: The chronological sequel to First Contact. Set in 2190, past the events of Mass Effect 1-3, but slightly AU. Like CE:FC, it's almost entirely OC driven. I've been writing and editing for a while now, so hopefully I should be able to keep it updated on a weekly basis.

The team of Asari commandos and a human seems unlikely. And while a tight-knit squad is formed, the galaxy remains as troubled as ever. So enjoy the good times while they last…because it's only a matter of time until the tempest hits.
