Author has written 6 stories for Dragon Age, Final Fantasy VII, and Mass Effect.

02.03.13 Update: I'm going to be switching over to AO3 so I won't be updating here any longer. It's just easier for me to keep everything in one place. My handle over there is the same, SorchaCahill, if you want to keep up with what I'm writing. I'll still have this account open for a while.

I'm a writer, reader, and gamer, three activities that come in handy when it's dark and cold eight months out of the year!

I have WAY too many favorite writers to list here, but here are a few of my favorites: Seanan McGuire (aka Mira Grant), Dean Koontz, Max Brooks (yeah, he's only written one novel, World War Z, but it's AWESOME!), J.K. Rowling, Rick Riordan, J.D. Robb, and Stephen King.

I have a wide range of interests, everything from criminology/true crime to psychology to virology. I mean who doesn't want to know which is more dangerous, a virus that is airborne or spread by insect? :D

I play mostly RPGs, as they tend to have good stories, and that's one of my big requirements for a game. Without a good story what's the point? The Final Fantasy series (especially FF VII and X) and the Dragon Age games are on the top of my list.

I have a pile of fic that's lying around and am in the process of transitioning it into digital, so postings may be a bit erratic. You've been warned! ;)

And, as always, I don't make any claim on the characters and worlds of either Final Fantasy, Dragon Age, or Mass Effect. Those belong to Square Enix and Bioware respectively. Embellishments, shenanigans, and any OCs are mine, and I kindly ask that they stay that way.

"Old myths, old gods, old heroes have never died. They are only sleeping at the bottom of our mind, waiting for our call. We have need for them. They represent the wisdom of our race." Stanley Kunitz

"Anyone who isn't confused really doesn't understand the situation." -Edward R. Murrow

“Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame!” William Butler Yeats

My stuff is also over on AO3. Same handle.
