Author has written 13 stories for Bloody Jack Adventures, Hunger Games, and Misc. Tv Shows.
Har har har m'hearties. Here be tales of pirates and wicked rogues; and of stout heroes, loyal friends and resourceful heroines. Heroines who are normal human beings who show intelligence and bravery when faced with adversity ... and never trip over their shoelaces at the most inconvenient time.
All my stories are M-rated young-adult adventure/romance/fantasy fiction. Most of my stories are set in male-dominated worlds where the heroine must strive for (and usually achieve) the love and respect of the boys and men around her. The level of violence and sexual activity in my stories is consistent with the tenor of the original series, and complies with FanFiction's guidelines.

I welcome feedback on my stories as this helps me develop my story-writing.
