Author has written 17 stories for Harry Potter, Dresden Files, Lord of the Rings, Digimon, Mummy, Halo, Inheritance Cycle, Ender's Game series, and Game of Thrones.

January 7th: Progress has been a bit slow on To rule from an Iron Throne. I've revised the first chapter several times, each time gradually improving, as I attempt to get the characterization down. I'd intended to have it up already by the end of the year, but things just haven't worked out that way - the same regarding last Dragonrider's third chapter. Sorry to keep you all waiting.


October 14th: Once more I have a favor to ask of any of my readers that see this request - the second original fiction anthology I am a part of has completed processing and is available in Kindle format for a mere $3.50. If you could at least open the preview and browse through to see if anything strikes your fancy I would appreciate it, and all the more so if you took a chance and bought a copy(http://www.amazon.com/Mysterious-Monstrous-Metropolitan-Anthology-ebook/dp/B00FUTZ08I/).

If you did buy the first, focused upon Antiheroes, you have my truest thanks, and hopefully you will try another that is focused upon Urban Fantasy this time. We have 18 amazing short-stories inside.


September 25th: Well, this has been an interesting learning experiment with To the Victor go the Spoils. I should have taken the lesson to heart from the first time I posted the story several months ago - perhaps Pokemon isn't a domain I need to play around in. I've got plenty of success with Harry Potter to be happy.


August 29th: And there we are. Chapter Two of The last Dragonrider is now posted. Clocks in at 5.8k words. Hope you guys and gals enjoy it!


August 28th: 3.8K of The last Dragonrider done at the moment. Finally settled on the path I wanted to present and we're doing pretty good. 1.2k since last night, 2.7k since last week. Here's hoping you guys are satisfied after the lengthy break between publication and update when it does go through.

On a side note, Welcome to Battle School is not a story I've been writing in the meanwhile, but another from my archives dated back to about two years ago.


May 17th Thank you to everyone continuing to read my currently posted stories, particularly The last Dragonrider. I intend to have the next chapter ready by the end of the month for that story in particular. Most of my time since the last profile update has been focused on my next original fiction anthology submission, this time Urban Fantasy, but in my spare time I've kicked around several pieces of Dragonrider/Fallen King/Arda et all. Any new stories posted in the meanwhile are actually several months old, and that I've finally felt were ready to go up.


February 21st: Still no big progress on any of the stories, sorry guys. But I do have a favor to ask of any of my readers - recently, an original fiction anthology I'm a part of has finally completed processing and is available for purchase in Kindle or Paperback version. The former is just $3.50! It would go a long way to helping me out personally if even one out of ten of you would spend a few dollars and purchase a copy(http://www.amazon.com/Unbowed-Unbroken-Unrelenting-Anthology-ebook/dp/B00BBFX39S/).

If you can't, please take the time to browse through the preview and, if you like it, spread word-of-mouth. This is hopefully my first step on the road to a long career as a published author, and every bit will help me out on that journey, to say nothing of my fellow authors. Thank you.


January 5th: Replaced chapters one-eight of Fallen King with revised versions, including better grammar and some modifications to Dresden's persona/overall view. Still need to go over the next few chapters to do the same and make things align, however.

Work is on-going if slow for The last Dragonrider, but I wanted to say I'm surprised and grateful to everyone favoriting and adding it to your alerts list.


December 8th: The one-shot, The lesser of two evils, is completed.

The last Dragonrider currently has about five different scenarios going forward that I need to narrow down still before we can really have a head-way into chapter 2.

I'm redoing a good bit of the intro for Fallen King's next chapter, so we're not quite at square one but no longer half-way there, either.


November 23rd: Sirius Interruptions was updated a little while ago with the fifth chapter. To those wondering, no, I haven't abandoned Of Arda. I'm still trying to capture the feel of it that I managed so well last time, and my writing process takes on occasion a very lengthy period to conduct.

Fallen King is half-way through the next chapter, and I expect to finish the story within two or three more thereafter.

Chance Meetings is still sitting at zero words toward Year Two, but I have tendrils of plot mapping itself out in my head as ever.

Peverell Successor should be well into the future by now, but I wanted to work out the history and journey of the Peverell's, and then later their descendants throughout the ages, and like the rest of my work, it isn't likely to receive anything more for a while.

Many of my other stories all have bits and pieces compiled in the writing club I'm part of, but nothing really concrete enough to contribute or build off of more than that. I usually go with three or four different scenarios, working forward with those paths a decent way, and discarding the least satisfying ones along the way until I finally get where I want to be with a chapter.


July 24th: Sirius Interruptions has been updated with the fourth chapter. Initial progress on Covenant Primes, further along on Curse of Hamunaptra.


April 29th: To everyone waiting on updates, I'd like to give an explanation of sorts for why they haven't been updating; whenever I write something, I try to get the feel of the series in question down as best I can. Sometimes that means re-reading a particular novel or set of novels several times, or rewatching the movie over and over again, until eventually I feel that I can capture the essence properly.

After that its a matter of test-writing to see if I actually *have* done so, or exploring the possibilities set out/set up in what is already posted. I've got probably four or five different ways to continue Curse of Hamunaptra, all of them just slightly off. And you wouldn't believe the amount of outtakes for Fallen King! I've got Covenant Primes running years after Harry is first introduced to things, all the way toward the end of the story, in broken and scattered concepts, and so on and so forth for Sirius Interruptions, and Arda as well.

All of my stories are always on my mind, and sometimes I just take too long to settle on the path to take and the feel of it. So for everyone out there, I'm sorry for the delays, and I hope you will keep on waiting patiently. Thank you.


Hrmm. Well, as I thought, Depths was more or less a failure. Some ideas just don't pan out, and I guess that's one of them. Kind of the reason I haven't put up some of the other Contest submissions from the last several months. Ah well! One less distraction from working on Arda and such. Thanks anyway, guys.


To those who may have seen the recent Harry Potter crossover, it was brought to my attention that the secondary category has often come under trouble with the original author disapproving of fanfiction based off of their work. Thus, to prevent everyone from having their day soured, I've taken the preemptive action to remove the story before possible legal action can be brought into play. My apologies to the author in question.

I'm sorry to the two users who added it to their alert list, but it is better to be safe in such a circumstance.

Yamamoto Genryūsai Shigekuni is, at heart, an old man who likes his tea prepared a certain way and has a soft spot for talented youngsters. His latest fledgling seems to be one Kurosaki Ichigo, substitute soul reaper. (Alternatively, a story in which Yamamoto is a crafty old man, Ichigo grows up to be utterly terrifying, and Aizen doesn't stand a chance.)

An assortment of Oneshots and other ideas reviews
Over the last couple of years I've accrued a number of such concepts that didn't quite expand into full-on stories, were idle fancies for that particular day of writing, or were the answers to challenge prompts. Will include the occasional XO, straight-up Other Fandom/Series, so on and so forth. No guarantee on quality/enjoyability. All genres may apply.

When Harry Dresden awoke that morning, a distant warning bell was echoing in his head. The kind of thing that usually alerts a Wizard that bad things are lurking in the day ahead. How bad? Try an elder god knocking on his front door, the timeline recently fractured and barely patched back together again, and the threat of the Outer Gates crumbling. Can he find a way to fix it all?
