Author has written 10 stories for X-Men: Evolution, X-Men, Ironman, and Life.

When not drowning in graduate school work I can usually be found behind my laptop on on Livejournal being snarky and/or complaining about things--usually both. I have a deep love for Bruce Springsteen, Batman and roguishly good-looking anti-heroes. As you can probably guess, I have a bit of a Peter Pan complex, hence why I'm still daydreaming about superheroes despite being of the age to go out and make my own path in the world.

I have too many on-going works or ideas for stories to ever be a regular updater. Not to mention, as previously stated, I'm a graduate student, which means I have to lump all my fun into Winter break and Summer Break. So maybe someday I'll update something regularly, but not at the present time. Your support and praise mean the world to me as I still tell loved ones that I'm not that great of a writer (if I elect to tell them that I am a writer at all).

I hope this finds you all in good health and prosperity.
