Author has written 6 stories for Fallout, and Disney.

I always encourage critical analyses, reviews, suggestions. Feel free to leave praise now and then too, it pleases my ego.

I've been told that sometimes I'm a little wordy...but my writing style is definitely my own. I love dialogue and character interaction. I'll try to remain as true to the sources from which I draw as I can, but I'll take creative liberties here and there in anything I write.

Below, you'll find basic descriptions of my 18 Karat Run series - the current project I'm working on. My adaptation of Old World Blues will be a spiritual adaptation - and will change a great deal of the story present in game. It was a hard decision to make, but the story in game just didn't fit in with the story that I'm writing. Bear in mind that these are all tentative and may change at any point...but this how I'm envisioning it currently. Minor spoilers may be present.

You can check out the covers to my stories here.


18 Karat Run- Following the story of Courier Six, a flawed character and reluctant hero. As time goes on more and more of his personality will shine through. I will be using companions sporadically through this series - the greatest portion of the series will focus on Six, Cass, Boone, and Joshua Graham.

A Courier's Tale - Courier Six - left for dead in a shallow grave. Revived by a small town doctor...he seeks retribution and vengeance. Suffering from amnesia and haunted by the demons of his past, the road he walks will change the Mojave forever. But he doesn't have to walk that path alone.

Aces & Eights - Follow Six into the red mist surrounding the Sierra Madre. He, Boone, and Veronica awaken to find they have been caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse with a madman. The cards have been dealt...but how will they play out?

Through Hardships and Sorrows - Six, Boone, And Raul travel to New Canaan under the guise of a trading expedition...but Six has his own plans. Sent by Caesar to assassinate Joshua Graham...Six has a choice to make. Will he carry out the will of Caesar? Or will he seek the aid of a man scorned? And what of Craig Boone...a former 1st Recon sniper? Will he stand idly by and let Six make a deal with the devil? The Burned Man cometh.

Bullets & Broken Things - Some force is out there at work. Waiting to take everything away from you. No one knows that better than Craig Boone. A tale of love and tragedy...and maybe, just maybe, of letting go of the past.

Curios & Relics - Six and his crew venture into a prewar facility known as the Big Empty; a scientific graveyard of old world misery. A treasure box...with treasures both sleeping, and awake. Across the Mojave, Boone returns to the Sierra Madre...seeking something left behind.

The Flags of Our Father - Six travels to the divide to confront Ulysses...seeking remnants of his past. A dark and lonely place. What he finds there may not be what he seeks.

The Prodigal Son - The rise and fall of the infamous Legate, Joshua Graham...baptized twice. Once in water, once in flame.

From the Underground by El Stormo reviews
Even a bullet in the head is not always the end. And those who survive tend to want only two things: answers or revenge. And very often, both.

Shady Sands Confidential by NihilNovo reviews
It's been six years since Hoover Dam. The Mojave was good for the NCR. It brought in water, power, and more than a little greed. The Mojave was good to Hank Redstone as well-he went from a poor farmboy to a war hero to a well-off private eye. But he's about to find out that everything, and everyone, has a price. Some just never get it. They don't call it Shady Sands for nothing.

Justifying The Ends by Lang Noi reviews
Just because the courier has the fate of the Mojave wasteland on her shoulders doesn't mean she has to take it on alone. That's what friends are for, no matter how dysfunctional they all are. Oneshot series, no pairings.

Anywhere I Wander: Sins of the Father reviews
This is a tale of the human condition. About the evolution of a man - and how the wasteland can tear asunder any and all trace of human decency. Albert "Thirteen" Harrison is such a man - a resident of Vault 101 who's world is about to be turned head over heels. This is a story of loss. How far can a man bend before he breaks?

18 Karat Run: Bullets & Broken Things reviews
Life has a way of punishing you for the mistakes you've made. The world doesn't care about the person you try to be, only about the person that you are. You look back at everything and think about how it could have been different. That you'd change it if you could. But that's not the way life works. You do things. You…see…things. Things no man should ever have to see.
