Author has written 20 stories for Dragon Age, and Queer as Folk.

I'm 38 years old and married with two beautiful daughters, who both manage to keep me very busy! We live in Ohio, and I work in a hospital as a CT (CAT scan) technologist, which needless to say, is quite stressful. So what do I do in my free time to relax? Write Dragon Age stories, of course! I love PC RPG games, and Dragon Age has captured my heart as well as my imagination.

From Ember to Flame was the first fanfiction I ever wrote, so forgive me if it seems rather unpolished. I prefer to focus on relationships when I write, so most of my stories reflect that. Heirloom, Honor, and Switch are a trilogy revolving around Nathaniel and Zevran. Left to Burn is a prompt fill for Zevgirl, about an angry encounter between Nathaniel and the Hero of Ferelden. Payment of a Different Kind, and A Debt Paid are pure Fenders slash. Three Nights in Kirkwall is a fic involving a growing relationship between Zevran and Fenris. The sequel to this is Red Promise.

I also write some stand-alone ficlets on the relationship of m!Hawke/Fenris after their first night together. They can be read as a series since they do follow a timeline. These are: Stolen Memories, Stolen Heart, Lesson in Humility, Laughter on the Wounded Coast, A Healing Touch, and Sweet Revenge, and To Mend a Heart. There will be more of these in the future as the ideas come.

Twilight in Thedas is my current project and promises to be a big one! It will involve many of the characters from DA Origins, Awakenings, and DA2. It begins with Queen Anora's assassination and will detail progressing events in both Ferelden and Kirkwall. The ending is already laid out, but it will take many chapters of interweaving plots to get there!

None of this work would be possible without the encouragement and hard work of my beta, Zevgirl. She is a wonderful writer in her own right--go check out her work on this site!

Every review and alert is treasured, so please feel free to write! They give me incentive to keep writing, even when the inevitable plot stumper muddles my head. Friendly advice and helpful criticism is more than welcome; I want to become a better writer! I also post my stories on archiveofourown.org under the pen name Brynneth if they ever get deleted here due to mature content.

I hope you enjoy my stories and thank you for reading!

2/25/13. I have been on a long hiatus, but I'm back! Expect some more chapters on Red Promise to come!

3/21/14. I'm hooked on Queer As Folk! Expect some Brian/Justin stories to come!
