I'm a Catholic Christian and an aspiring poet, novelist, playwright, and screenwriter. I have a B.A. in English Language & Literature and Communication Arts, with a concentration in creative writing. I also have experience as a writing tutor.
Consuming and creating stories is my way of understanding and interacting with reality. I believe one of the core purposes of fiction is to help us examine and better understand reality. I try to relate my thoughts and emotions about fictional characters to real people in similar situations, and encourage my readers to do the same.
I'm a stickler about spelling, grammar, and punctuation, so I point out such errors when I leave reviews, and appreciate having them pointed out in reviews for my work. If you'd like to save me from future embarrassment, please point out my errors so I can remedy them as soon as possible!
About my stories:
The entirety of "Beauty and the Blue Spirit" can be read on my DeviantArt account. Only the second half is currently on this account. I plan to revise and post the entirety of the story on this account, and then delete it from DeviantArt.
I am in the process of revising the first several chapters of "Finding What You Weren't Looking For." Advice and feedback during this process would be greatly appreciated. I apologize to readers who follow it for any confusion. I still plan to continue the story, but the Avatar: The Last Airbender comics (which are still coming out every few months) have rendered me uncertain about how to proceed, and how much to deviate from or stay in line with the canon.
I would like to rewrite "The Last Misérables," because at the time I wrote it I had only seen the musical Les Misérables once onstage. In the five years that have passed, I've read the original novel by Victor Hugo and watched various adaptations. I do not know yet if or when I will be able to devote the time necessary to revise and expand the contents. I am also uncertain which ATLA character to cast as Jean Valjean, and would welcome suggestions.
About my story labels:
A novella has 17,500 to 40,000 words.
A short story cycle is a collection of short stories that can be read separately, but are connected by characters or themes, and have deeper meaning when read together.
About my art:
My profile picture is the symbols and names of the four authors of the Gospels. I found the image at Son of Thunder Historical Apologetics on blogspot.com. The Holy Spirit is (what the Greeks would call) my muse; in both my academic and personal writing, He inspires me with ideas and words, enabling me to do much more than I could of my own power.
My cover art for Les Misérables fanfics are screenshots from the anime series Shoujo Cosette, which is based pretty closely on Victor Hugo's novel. (I highly recommend this series to anyone but especially to fans of Les Mis and/or anime! I have an episode guide on my DeviantArt account, but it may convey spoilers so use it carefully.)
I get screenshots for my Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra collages and cover art from three websites: the Avatar Wiki, AvatarSpirit.net, and cap-that.com.
I frequently find pieces of fanart that match scenes from my fan fiction, and I'll ask the artist if I can cite the link and/or use the picture as cover art. However, I would love it if artists with better abilities and tools than I have would illustrate scenes unique to one of my own stories.
Bonus Features (Warning: may give away future developments in unfinished stories)
In my DeviantArt gallery you can find collages I've made as cover art for my various Avatar fanfics, including "The Last Misérables" and "Of Tabloids and Triads".
I have a sort of unofficial partnership with a fanartist who goes by eviechan68. I write stories about her original characters, and in exchange she draws character designs and illustrations for "Trust, Truth, Fear, and Freedom." Check out her art on Tumblr and DeviantArt!
