Author has written 10 stories for Mass Effect, and Dragon Age.

Hiya, my name is Laura D. I'm an artist of all sorts. Writer, cosplayer, prop maker, pumpkin carver, jewelry artisan, craftswoman, I am a jack of all trades. I am a visual artist. I see things in my head and make it happen. My mind is constantly thinking of a million things at once and how to make everything happen all at the same time. I never look at something for what it is... but for what it can be. Everyone has the ability to become something great, they just have to work really hard to get there. I am determined to leave my mark.

I currently live in Louisiana. I am married to the creator of Madness Combat, Matt "Krinkels" Jolly. His flash animations can be viewed on and at I have two dogs named Corey (Akita/German Shepherd/Corgi mix) and Stumbles (Beagle mutt), two cats named Gir (Russian Blue) and Cali (Calico), and 8 sugar gliders named Dixie, Crabs, Dib, Gaz, Kanuckles, Flapjack, Mordecai, and Rigby (notice a pattern?). I love the south... the food, the culture, the heat and humidity. New Orleans will always have my heart.

I blame Bioware for getting me back into writing. What can I say? They created some amazing games and universes! It began with the Garrus/femShep fan fiction titled "Special Events" and then just escalated from there. Now I have many different Shepards (each with their own unique story), a couple of Hawkes, and some OC's.

I truly enjoy writing these stories. And I love reading people's reviews, even if it's a simple, "I loved it" or "that was great!"

I'm also an active member on, I post all of my creations there as well:
